The Erotosphere is a juicy nexus of music and performance art from all corners of the universe. Here’s what we have in store for you in the Erotosphere at Kinky Salon Seattle on Saturday, May 21st:
The Kinky Salon Cabaret launches at 11:00:
  • The Lady B: Our MC is none other than Seattle’s première TransFabulous, Femtastic, Draglesquing, Sass-Mouthing Negro. (YEAH!!) You can find more about her performance and her community support and activism on Facebook and also here http://sites.middlebury.edu/tedx/attend/2015-speakers/
  • Team Jesus, our singer-songwriter duo: Even religion gets a little kinky in the Erotosphere: Team Jesus will be joining us to make bluegrass sexy again
  • Sugar Candy: Don’t miss Sugar-Candy who will get us going on a tour of the flavors in the middle of the Erotosphere with a hip-hop dance to Beyonce’s “Blow”
  • Misty Montaigne: Because Kinky Salon is the perfect context for an aria! How about “Je Veux Vivre” from Romeo and Juliet – except with custom dirty lyrics?!
  • Café au Lait Olé is a light-brewed negress who brews performance potions with unexpected ingredients. Well, let us just say that you won’t ever look at Star Trek the same way again https://www.facebook.com/cafeaulaitole
Those of you who start your party-making early in the night can get beamed up to the Erotosphere with the following experiential performances:
  • Spectacular interactive dance
  • A live demo of sacred tantric cock worship!
  • Needle Art: Feast your eyes upon Chris, Quinn, and Fisher as they create a masterpiece before you.
  • Rope Tasting: Experience for yourself, a decorative harness tied by one of our local Rope Tops.

Traveling music throughout your journey will be provided in two rooms by our team of Erotospheric Soundscapers including Neural Net, Mars Saxman, DJ Girlcock, and other Surprise Lifeforms:

  • Neural Net is described as a biological computer network designed to explore deep shades of tech house ranging from melodic and instrumental to funky get-down jams to mind-melting and dark sonic territories, but always keeping the dance floor grooving https://soundcloud.com/neuralnet
  • Mars Saxman will be laying down a steady flow of dub-glitch with some bite
  • DJ Girlcock will be penetrating the aural spheres with the tunes of a hiphop/r&b/club flavor. http://soundcloud.com/reverenddollars
  • Surprise Lifeforms reaches out to the Erotosphere for a kaleidoscope of Techno and House music changing patterns from the dark, deeper, more mystical sexy side to uplifting emotional melodies and rhythms.
And, of course, our inviting and comfortable play spaces and items of kink furniture, well stocked with all necessary comfort and health supplies, and ready and waiting for you and your sexy times with your playmates!  Your space journey can be as orgasmic (or not) as you like.

What’s a kinky salon?
 “Kinky Salon is a playful, sexy space for YOU to get your creative juices flowing. Be you vanilla or kinky, transgender, queer, straight, bi, queer or pansexual, we invite you to enjoy and engage in our artistic and erotic world.

 

We believe in risqué ridiculousness, mischievous masquerading, the intelligent and the inane, and we firmly believe that communication makes the best lube.

 

Despite its name, Kinky Salon is not a sex party, a BDSM dungeon, or a hair salon specializing in afros. Over the years it has been described as many things – a ‘sexually enlightened house party… with warm community atmosphere’ (Best of the Bay 2004), ‘The Magic Kingdom’ (Cover Story SF Weekly 2004), ‘Sustainable Hedonism’ (Common Ground 2007), ‘The hottest, sweetest sex-positive community for the polymorphous set’ (Gridskipper 2008), ‘…a close-knit community of sex-positive men and women in San Francisco… more about the progression and liberalization of sexuality in the public sphere’ (PSFK Snapshot 2008), and our personal favorite ‘The best erotic party I have ever been to’ (The Patron Saint of Kinky Salon – Dr. Annie Sprinkle, PhD, 2008). Yes, Kinky Salon is a party. It’s a really, really fun party. Yes, people can have sex at Kinky Salon, but it’s not the focus of the evening. For some people it’s a place to experiment with their exhibitionism or explore their sexuality with new friends, for others the sex is just a charming and delightful backdrop to an evening of socializing. The truth is that Kinky Salon is a social experiment embedded with tools to help people explore their identity, learn to communicate their boundaries, and surf their comfort zones.” — Polly Whittaker

Thank you! And save the date: Saturday, May 21st!

Thanks so very much to all you wonderful Kinky Salon Seattle attendees.
 
The event came together on a relative shoestring with a small volunteer crew, and it only went so smoothly thanks to the awesomeness of our guests.  You completely embraced the Kinky Salon ethic of community-mindedness and accountability, not to mention raw, smoking ultrahotness.  YOU ALL ROCKED IT SO HARD!
 
We waited to send this so we could also ask you all to save the date of our next party:  Saturday, May 21st.  Same venue for this one. Theme TBD.  Please put it on your and your friends’ calendars now!
 
We also want to thank our fabulous performers and presenters:
  • Seattle Shibari provided rope skills in the cabaret and a stunning personal scene later: http://seattleshibari.com
  • Charlie Glickman led the anal workshop in the early part of the evening. You can learn more about Charlie and his work at http://charlieglickman.com/
  • Our sketching artist, Wyatt Landis, teaches visual art classes such as figure drawing and oil painting at http://www.studioparadiso.org/
  • That sassy lap dance was brought to you by Katie
  • The delightful singer/songwriter duo are Jazz Goldman and William Nichols
  • Our incredible draglesque performer is none other than The Lady B: Seattle’s première TransFabulous, Femtastic, Draglesquing, Sass-Mouthing Negro. You can find more about her performance and her community support and activism on Facebook and also here http://sites.middlebury.edu/tedx/attend/2015-speakers/
  • Our excellent DJs kept us grooving: RC Brown and howin1000
If you are interested (or know someone who should be interested) in performing at a future Kinky Salon, please get in touch with us.
 
We are eager to party with you again in the springtime!
 
Sincerely,
The Kinky Salon Seattle Organizers

  • Or just cum and stay all night to share in the atmosphere.

This is an all-skate event! Everyone of all identities, genders, orientations, ages, bodies, and persuasions, from first time explorers to seasoned party-goers are welcome. If you’ve read and agreed to our Pal System and House Rules, then this party is for you.

Costume Inspiration: into the woods, Woody Harrelson, lumberjacks (you’re ok!), bunnies, beavers, Peter Pan, Pooh-bear, Glinda the Camp witch of the North, Alchemists, Fairy Queens, gender-fluid elves, Gandalf the Gray, White and Gay, Red Riding Hood, androgynous wood sprites.  Or, if you’re not moved by the theme, you can also dress fancy, or formal, or fetish, and you’ll make it in.  Just please don’t look everyday; we want no spectators and all participants!

Kinky Salon is a playful, sexy space for the kinky, cis, transgender, queer, vanilla, straight, bi, pansexual to enjoy and engage, to cultivate community. Yes, people can have sex at Kinky Salon, but it’s not necessarily the focus of the evening. For some people it’s a place to experiment with exhibitionism, explore their sexuality with new friends, or let their hair down just enough to feel a sense of freedom and liberation. For others the sex is just a charming and delightful backdrop to an evening of socializing. Kinky Salon is a social experiment embedded with tools to help people explore their identity, learn to communicate their boundaries, and surf their comfort zones.
