December Gathering

Posted in art, burlesque, erotica / porn, events on November 24, 2010 by Pleasure Forum Australia


Pleasure Salon Melbourne is proud to present the final gathering for the year:

Melbourne’s best kept naughty little secret, Burlesque Bar, comes out to play this December as some of its resident femmes fatale spill their secrets for a festive Pleasure Salon that is not to be missed! Join the house madam, Madame Natalia, resident starlet and ‘Cirque de Femmes’ Foxtrot India, and business director Lauren ‘Liquor Lollipop’ for a bare all look at the Art of Tease, it’s evolution through the ages, it’s application in the modern day and the ins and outs (pun intended) of managing, hosting and entertaining within a venue dedicated solely to sensual titillation and fun. There’ll be song, dance…burlesque…and of course some in depth discussions that peek right up the skirt of the sexual and sensual revolution taking the world by storm. Come and play…we dare you…

This end of year wrap up is going to be HUGE!

Be sure to get there early to get a comfy spot, get a drink and dinner if you’re inclined!

PSM has been running just under a year now and has had fantastic contributions from all over the sex-positve community. However, WE KNOW there is MORE out there.
As you know, PSM is about  promoting sex positive awareness around pleasure, variety and diversity. So far this year we have looked a little at:
  • trans issues
  • sex work
  • approaches to conscious touch
  • BDSM
  • politics
  • anal play
  • sex as a commodity
  • women and porn
  • piercing as sex play
We are currently looking for speakers for 2011, so if you or someone you know is keen to present at PSM next year, please put together a brief proposal in point form covering:
  • Topic
  • What you / your group will cover
  • What your experience / background / interest is in this topic
  • Any approaches or perspectives on this topic that might be interesting to explore
  • Anything else that you think we should know about you
If you fancy the thought of speaking, but are not up to doing it alone, still let us know and we might be able to put you in touch with others interested in the same / similar topics and you can work on presenting together. After all PSM is about building community.
Hot topics could be, but are certainly not limited to:
  • poly
  • rope / bondage
  • toys / usage
  • pleasure
  • men / women / trans approaches to sex / play
  • gay / bi / hetero approaches to sex / play
  • expanding vanilla
  • expanding kink
  • swinging
  • sex education
  • leather
  • erotic literature
  • media / cyber sex
  • therapy / holistic health
  • medicine
  • relationships / negociation
  • communicating around sex issues
  • sex and spirituality
  • brothels / sex-on-site venues
  • and of course different perspectives on topics we have already covered.

Until next time
