The Erotic Poetry & Music Festival

Jennifer Wingless by Ed Ballots.
Valentine’s Day might be in the rearview, but eroticism is forever. The 31st Erotic Poetry & Music Festival returns with a titillating lineup that is sure to inspire arousal. Performances from Satori Circus, Emily Rose, and more are on deck, as well as a burlesque blowout starring a slew of seductive stripteasers (and, of course, poetry and spoken word performances that should come with a “parental advisory” warning). A feast for the eyes, ears, and all the bits in between, the Erotic Poetry & Music Festival will also have a handful of vendors slinging all the naughty things.
