PHILADELPHIA: The Erotic Literary Salon, unique in the English-speaking world has launched a growing movement mainstreaming erotica. Salons attract a supportive audience of 65 or more individuals. Approximately 20 participate as writers, readers, storytellers, spoken word performers of original works/words of others, the rest just come to listen, enjoy and applaud. Frances, our resident nonagenarian (97 years young) occasionally recites her original erotica.


Salons gather the 3rd Tuesday of every month at TIME (The Bohemian Absinthe Lounge), 1315 Sansom Street, Center City, Philadelphia. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. (limited seating), for cocktails, food and conversation. Talk and Q&A between 7:00-7:30, readings begin at 8:00. Admission is $10, discounted for students, and seniors to $8. Salon attendees must be 21.


Creator of this event, Dr. Susana, is Philadelphia’s best-known sexologist. She lends her voice to the Salon by offering relevant information to support the discussions that arise in the Salon and blog.

The Talk:For Adults – Designer Relationships (Polyamory) – June 17 – The Erotic Literary Salon-Live

I shall be presenting “The Talk:For Adults” at 7PM prior to the readings on June 17th. Dr. Ken Haslam a polyamory activist coined the phrase ‘Designer Relationship: “Relationships being formed today no longer have to follow the rules and so each one, if the couple actually talks to each other, has a different structure. Each couple (or the triad or….) has to define it’s own rules and guidelines according to whatever works for them.”


I will also be discussing the new non-monogamy. If you want to know more, come an enjoy an evening of edutainment at the new Erotic Literary Salon-Live in Philadelphia next Tuesday.
