The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, February 17. For the fourth consecutive year, the Salon welcomes back local artist and performer, Monica Day, to deliver a Valentine’s-inspired reading. We never know exactly where Day’s Valentine’s explorations will take us. Her poems and stories are deeply personal, often unfolding right up to the moment of the performance itself. Will this be the year she finds love? The year she doesn’t care about love? Wherever she lands, Salon regulars have come to count on her unflinching style, uncensored approach to the erotic life — and the unexpected ways that she speaks to both the heart and pulse of each person in the room. http://powerofoneprogram.com

 

The Femme-mynistiques are a unique force bringing together the skills of Alexa Gold, Lady Omni MC & Plum Dragoness. Together the Femme-mynistiques are a righteous storm creating a innovative niche on the performance scene with their awe-inspiring original fusion of Lyrical Poetry, Omnipotent Raps & Siren Vocals set to dynamic variety of conscious hip hop, tribal house, down-tempo, electronic music (& sometimes presented a cappella). Performances blend their respective skillfulness in music production, dance choreography, theater arts, poetry as performance and song writing into an illuminating blend of ancient rites that celebrate the modern spirit of freedom, unity and love. https://www.facebook.com/groups/thefemmemynistiques/

The Erotic Literary Salon: No Word Ever Censored, survives because of free speech.

I Am Charlie, Uncomfortably: The Price of Free Discourse

by Remittance Girl

To hold a pen is to be at war.”  Voltaire

In the wake of the murder of 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo Magazine offices, there has been shock, mourning and much passionate debate. It is sad that it takes the assassination of a group of French satirical cartoonists to prompt a serious discussion of what constitutes freedom of expression and where the limits of cultural offense might be located.

The most difficult part of defending freedom of expression is that it requires that you take a stand with people whose ideas are offensive to you. Much Charlie Hebdo’s satire took aim at the hypocrisy, intransigence and parsimony of the religious groups that make up French society. I, and many people, found the cartoons produced by Charlie Hebdo offensive; they were often racist, homophobic, sexist and concertedly insulting to Muslims, Jews, and Catholics, using exaggerated visual stereotypes to get their point across. I can’t defend the content or the artistic merit of much of Charlie Hebdo’s work, but many people would equally refuse to defend the content or the artistic merit of what I write.

That’s the thing about freedom of expression: the worth of any particular act of expression is always going to be subjective, but the freedom to express it is not.

If you’re puzzled as to why so many French people have taken to the streets – read more:
