The fifth installment of Body Heat: The Femme Porn Tour is set to hit the road April 15th with a long-overdue focus on the South East.
Body Heat is a national touring collective of fierce Queer Femme porn/erotic authors, performers, poets, and dancers who offer a sizzling two hour performance, as well as a variety of workshops on sex and gender and erotic writing.
This fifth line-up will feature Body Heat founder and spoken-word performer Kathleen Delaney (Atlanta, GA.), published author and sex-workshop facilitator Jen Cross (San Francisco, CA.), The Femme Show founder & performer Gigi Frost (Boston, MA.), Erotic writer and versatile performer Alex Cafarelli (San Francisco, CA.), and graceful and elegant Burlesque dancer The Lady Ms. Vagina Jenkins (Atlanta, GA.). Special guests include Margaret Cho, Phoenicia Phoenixyz Battle and more!
Along with an arsenal of erotic song, dance, camp, poetry, smut, and prose, the femmes are often joined by special guests such as celebrated sexologists and authors Carol Queen, Diana Cage, and Shar Rednour. Body Heat often welcomes new local performers at various stops along the tour.
Body Heat has garnered such praise as “THE best Femme porn writers in the country,” (Center for Sex Positive Culture, Seattle, WA.) Kathleen Delaney founded the tour in 2007 with the hope of supporting and promoting Queer Femme visibility and desire through their contributions to erotica, the sex industry, the sex-positive movement, and in forming a more complex sexual identity through art and performance.
