Again, apologies for generic site, yesterday’s post explains the disaster.

Just realized my press releases lost, yikes! Here is tomorrow’s:

Philadelphia’s Erotic Literary Salon, Featuring Gifted Erotica Writer/Performer Jackie, Along with Salon Erotic Readings from Attendees, Tuesday, November 20th.



Saturday, October, 20, 2012

PCSalons@gmail.comreserve a time slot to read at Salon (5 min max), guidelines at website. – blog s+x news, Salon notices, erotica, and guidelines.


The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, November, 20. Jackie has been earning resounding applause from the Salon’s attendees for several years, with her soul wrenching, mind bending readings. As a featured presenter she will be reading her favorite piece, Where Have You Gone David Carradine, that she wrote shortly after Carradine’s kinky death in June 2009. She’ll also share a short selection, Squeezies, from the new series she’s working on now, Old People Sex.


Irene will also present an American style tribal belly dance with sword.


PHILADELPHIA: The Erotic Literary Salon, unique in the English-speaking world has launched a growing movement mainstreaming erotica. Salons attract a supportive audience of 70 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 (95 years young) often 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. The event begins promptly at 8:00 p.m. Admission is $10, discounted for students, and seniors (65+) 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.


…surprisingly comfortable….Salon devotees praise her for the space she has created….” 

“I think Susana is doing a very brave thing.”

Sometimes you look at someone and they look at you, and there’s a spark. What happens next? The audience decides, in this lyrical, motivational, and intensely intimate exploration of the instantaneous decisions that go into any sexual encounter. From the award-winning creator of Phone Whore and slut (r)evolution comes for | play, running for two nights only Nov. 15-16 at the Playground in the Adrienne Theater, 2030 Sansom St., Philadelphia.

A delicate, dynamic mix of storytelling, spoken word, and erotica, for | play is a theatrical experience fueled in part by audience choices. Breaking through the fourth wall, this unique one-hour performance invests viewers in the very progression of the action — liberating their own personal feelings of sexual creativity.

for | play was nominated for the Centaur Best English-Language Theatre award at the 2012 Montréal Fringe Festival. Cameryn’s first two solo shows, Phone Whore and slut (r)evolution, have already toured to a total of 34 cities, with awards and critical acclaim coming from across the North American Fringe Festival circuit (Pick of the Fringe, 2011 Victoria Fringe Festival; Best of Fest, 2011 Winnipeg Fringe; Judges’ Honourable Mention, 2010 Ottawa Fringe; Best Female Solo, 2010 San Francisco Fringe). The tour continued this year to 25+ cities and over 60 performances.

Cameryn Moore is a playwright/performer, sex activist and educator, and, oh yeah: a phone sex operator. She writes Tour Whore, a weekly column for Montreal’s Charlebois Post, and Sidewalk Smut: custom typewritten pornography as street performance and literary art. Cameryn was recently chosen as the first international artist-in-residence at Montréal’s Mainline Theatre during its 2012-2013 season; there she will create and present Bang It Out, in April 2013.

Chlamydia dell’Arte is a sex-ed burlesque duo. You’ve never taken a sex-ed class like this one! Learn about safe sex, STDs, sexual orientation, menstruation, and much, much more through striptease, comedy, songs, and dance–all the parts of a traditional burlesque show. Come for the titillation, stay for the education.

The Erotic Literary Salon provides a supportive and non-judgmental arena for sharing erotica, writing tips, encouraging writers, offering sex news with a positive spin, and discussions on various related topics. The live salon meets monthly and features readings by established and new writers, supported by a community of avid listeners and readers.
