Typically black history month celebrates our ancestors, inventors, leaders and of course slavery. One thing I found that isn’t celebrated or reflected on is our sexual history or lived experience. That’s why I’m putting on 3 events to explore and celebrate black erotica.
Shibari Noire. Spank & Wax and Drinks & Kinks.
Shibari Noire is the UKs first and only erotic rope workshop dedicated to people of African and Caribbean heritage.
Spank & Wax offers a place for black people to learn, explore and indulge in the pleasures of spanking.
Drinks & Kinks is an mixer and social event for black kinksters to meet, network and connect with like minded people of African and Caribbean heritage.
So this October explore and celebrate a different aspect of black history
Brown Sugar brings together some of the most acclaimed voices in today’s black literary world — Sapphire, Natasha Tarpley, Reginald Harris, and Pamela Sneed, among them. These titillating stories cover the full spectrum of black experience and identity as they reveal sexuality and sensuality in all their varied and exotic forms. From the subtle to the graphic, Brown Sugar embraces the passion of black love and lust, and will appeal to both men and women. Featuring both well-established authors and promising new writers, this one-of-a-kind collection represents the past, present, and future of black literature at its pleasurable and outrageous best.
It is a must-have for every lover, as well as every lover of first-rate fiction.
