Philadelphia Weekly – PhillyNow

The Erotic Literary Salon

by Josh Kruger

Word geeks talking genitalic fun—or even use—are lucky to be around these days. It used to be that the only sites to talk freely about intimate exploits were either stiflingly clinical or unnecessarily shameful, with bright neon lights outside and sticky linoleum on the inside. Indeed, safe spaces where people could creatively rant or rave about their awesome, mundane or downright twisted sex lives were primarily on psychiatrists’ couches or barstools a few blocks away from the neighborhood parish. Thank heaven times have changed.

To celebrate both remorseless kinkiness and good ol’ fashioned spoken word, the Erotic Literary Salon brings together an eager audience on every third Tuesday of each month at TIME in Center City, where open souls share five-minute sex-related poems, remembrances and short stories. And for January’s gathering, attendees will welcome Ainsley Burrows, creator of the touring “pop-erotica extravaganza” dubbed Sweet Spot Nation, which hits Philly next month—on the weekend before Valentine’s Day. (Mark that calendar now.)

Burrows, who’s toured professionally as a poet for over a decade, will give a talk with a Q&A before the evening’s open mic—oh, and his ultra-hot poems are going to leave blisters. Here’s to a night that’s as publicly and positively affirming of sex and sexuality as it ought to be. / JOSH KRUGER
