To be glamorous, you must refuse innocence, stimulate admiration, and invite mystery. If you can pull this off while looking fierce in a satin and marabou feather dressing gown, so much the better.
Who or what is glamour to you?
Queer Hard-Core Fierce & Potent Femme Porn writers, poets, dancers, performers, divas, coming to see YOU. The tour kicks off in Boston tonight!

BODY HEAT: FEMME PORN TOUR
Body Heat is a collective of fierce, sassy, irreverent Femme artists setting ablaze performance art communities and smashing open Femme stereotypes. Porn, Kink, Smut, Erotica -Body Heat is not reclaiming our sex so much as OWNING it. We will turn you on. We will challenge all of your Gender, Sex, Feminist, Social, & Political boundaries & assumptions. We will entertain the hell out of you. Mostly we will leave you panting, begging, dripping for more.
Body Heat: Femme Porn Tour will feature Body Heat founder and spoken-word performer Kathleen Delaney (Atlanta, GA.), former On Our Backs editor, radio personality, and acclaimed author Diana Cage (NYC), Sister Spit vet, former slam champion, filmmaker, and writer Meliza Bañales (San Francisco, CA), published author and sex-workshop facilitator Jen Cross (San Francisco, CA), Nationally renowned singer / performer Nicky Click (Durham, NH), The Femme Show founder & performer Gigi Frost (Boston, MA), Erotic writer and versatile performer Alex Cafarelli (San Francisco, CA.), and Burlesque performer The Lady Ms. Vagina Jenkins (Atlanta, GA). Along with an arsenal of erotic song, dance, camp, poetry, smut, and prose they will also be joined by special guests along their various stops. Celebrated sexologists and authors Carol Queen and Shar Rednour are just two of the special guests that will join the tour in cities across the Nation.
If you are a queer femme who specializes in smutty poetry, burlesque, queer porn, and/or performance and would like to perform with the femmes on one of their stops, you can contact us at email@example.com or www.myspace.com/femmeporntour.
Whether you’re nice or naughty, you’re going to like Sabrina Chap’s new video!
From The Queerist:
In a world of flash-in-the-pan acts and pop music saturation, it’s a joy to discover Sabrina Chap, a deeply talented musician who’s well grounded in songwriting and grand performanceship . When her songwriting career collided with a discovery of ragtime years ago, it launched her in a new direction, creating jazzy-heavy tunes with vintage, hearty vocals. Clever lyrics and a penchant for cabaret only amped up the appeal. Read the rest here.
Inspiration from the world of Miss Grace Jones….
“I do what I want and I’m satisfied with it, whether or not it pleases everybody…. Actually, there are certain people I definitely don’t want to please. There are some people I’m like ‘Oh no, puh-leeeze don’t like me!'”
“If you’re out there you’re vulnerable. People prefer to disappear in life, to repress their personality. That’s not living. It’s dying. I see them all over the place, the walking dead.”
“I wasn’t born this way. One creates oneself.”
