The EroSomatics Salon

You’re (privately) invited to the EroSomatics Salon.*

 In other words: a gathering for folks to sit around and geek out about things they are curious about. 

There are countless ways of getting information these days – websites, social media, podcasts. But there’s something different about gathering together in real time, joining in the flow of a vibrant conversation, moving with the fluidity of the discussion.  

Come gather with Trudes & Zed, and other EroSomatics folks, for the simple pleasure of exchanging ideas. 

There can be something enlivening, stimulating, and intimate about sharing ideas in real time, joining in the flow of a vibrant conversation, moving with the fluidity of the discussion, where we gather for the simple pleasure of exchanging ideas. A Salon! When salons first emerged in the 16th century, it was the poets, writers, and intellectuals who gathered. Here, you don’t have to be a poet or an artist. You just have to have a body.  

The EroSomatics Salon will be a time for us erotic explorers, activists, curious conjurers, sacred whores, and tricksters to collectively harvest ideas, share thoughts, hear different perspectives, and learn new ways of thinking. It’s an opportunity to connect with peers who love to ponder.

Each salon will have a theme to focus our discussion. It will be informal and loosely facilitated to move the conversation forward. It is not a class or workshop; it’s a collaboration of each participant’s beautiful mind, body, and voice. Come join us!

Use the form below to RSVP. Space is limited and may fill. 

Some experience with erotic exploration in community is recommended but not required.

The Salon is invitation only (for now), but you are welcome to personally invite people who you think would enjoy this. (Please don’t share this link on social media.) 

Cost

The Salon will be by donation! $5-25 suggested
More if you can, less if you can’t; no one turned away for lack of funds.

(If we end up needing to rent a space for the in person ones in Seattle, we will let everyone know what the rental cost is and hopefully can split that between us; but still, we are more interested in your attendance, so you are invited regardless of payment and cost.
