The Erotic Literary Salon
On the third Tuesday of every month, you can step into a sanctuary for verbal expression in the upstairs lounge at Time in Center City Philadelphia. Founded by sexologist Dr. Susana Mayer, each evening consists of an open-discussion adult sex-ed hour, and then open readings of fiction, poetry, memoir and more. I'm now a co-producer and guest host for the salon, and my partner Walter is a fixture of its education session each month. All are welcome into this space, which is a home for wayward literary works that don't have a place with traditional venues or publishers. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy good conversation, company and a chance to read or listen, then head downstairs for the city's best jazz open mike.
