  • Erotic Possibilities Symposium

    Erotic Possibilities Symposium

    Erotic Possibilities is a series of panel talks, inviting different practitioners who in one way or another have benefitted professionally from sex and sexuality. The talks will investigate the evolvement of sex and sexuality today and explore the meaning of sex and music, celebrity, fashion, art, publishing, activism and photography. I am pleased to say that the promotional materials for the event feature selections from my series Plea for Tenderness.

    Hosted by Reba Maybury of Wet Satin Press and Matthew Holroyd of Baron and Baroness Magazines, the event takes place at the Ace Hotel London Shoreditch on Sunday March 26th. You can learn more about the event and purchase tickets by following this link.
