“The Sexiest and most Classiest LIVE POETRY SHOW on Earth”
Disclaimer: This is NOT a conservative post. If you’re one to blush when the topic of conversation is sex then this post may be too much for you.
Netflix and chill? Who needs Netflix and chill when you can poetry and pole? Did you get a shift in senses reading that? Hmmm…did you get that feeling of intrigue and pleasure? It was precisely the feeling that I had when I saw the flyer advertising the event. My husband and I had the pleasure of attending an event promised with a night of erotic dancers, live poets, and sensual music by a local group called Intimate Art Team. Admittedly, we didn’t know what to expect but we were open-minded and excited to have an out-of-the-box date night.
I admit that the “Southern Belle” in me doesn’t shy away from anything sexual or sex related. I believe everyone should be in tune with their sexual desires as an enhancement to any relationship. Some might wonder if they have the confidence to willingly take their significant other into such an atmosphere. I can attest and say to not let your insecurities stop you from enjoying the night. Just chuckle at yourself. All you need to enjoy this journey is interest and time.
The opening act came hard. She was just the right amount of introduction into the evening. Her words flooded the room causing jaw drops and gasps and then clapping and screams. She was much like those times when you just have to rip the band-aid off for all to be well. I think it’s what was needed for those, like me, who’d never been to such an event. Subsequent acts maintained the momentum with clear display of their passion and gifts for storytelling with their poems of lovemaking. There was so much talent. Words met sex met foreplay met soul. Words brought strangers together with interactive participation of guests during short intermissions. Poets used personification to describe his parts and her parts and their acts with such grace.
At one point my husband and I were volunteers on stage for adult charades. You can be entertained by that here. What the crowd had to guess from us…lap dancing. It almost felt like sex in a room full of people watching. Much to my surprise, we embraced the moment if even for a short period of time and enjoyed. After this intermission, pole dancing was introduced into the acts. Beautiful women demonstrated their strength rhythmically dancing to melody as words spewed into the atmosphere as satire conjoined with alliteration, symbolism, and metaphors. JJ_dae, one of the musical acts of the night, dropped bomb new music releasing soon. He had a larger than life personality with great crowd control.
Pole dancing and poetry…two things that seem to not quite fit together collided in the best way. I can assure you that if you so choose to attend such an event you won’t be disappointed. Embrace the words. Embrace the dancing. Embrace the sex toys being sold at a nearby table. Embrace your sexual desires. And embrace the dirty thoughts that’ll flood your mind. Yes it was an unusual date night but definitely one to remember and one we’d do again without hesitation. It was a great bonding experience and one of the best date nights to date in 17 years.
Tell next time…
