2020 Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 5 Book Tour
sponsored by überlube and Le Wand
January 19, 3 pm
Stoya's Book Club Sex Lit
Editor Rachel Kramer Bussel and contributors Emerald and Caridad Piñeiro will discuss Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 5 with Stoya and her book club. Registration details and ticket sales link TBA.
The body's largest sex organ is the brain. Come stimulate yours with a rousing discussion of an explicitly erotic book led by pornographer Stoya. Drinking encouraged throughout, and mingling will follow the talk.
This should be obvious, but: read the book before joining the book club! Of course you can join us even if you haven't read it, but you'll be better able to participate in the club if you did.
You likely know who Stoya is already, but in case you don't: she has been working with sexuality for over a decade. Her writing has been published by the New York Times, the Guardian, Playboy, and others, and her first book of essays, Philosophy, Pussycats, & Porn, was released through Not A Cult in summer 2018. She has recently developed a taste for acting with her clothes on and is known for her appearance in Clayton Cubitt's Hysterical Literature.
