******SPECIAL GUEST SHAR REDNOUR!!!!!!!******

The sixth and seventh installments of Body Heat: Femme Porn Tour are set to hit the road in 2013 with both a West Coast tour in February, and a South East tour in April.

Body Heat was founded in 2007 by Atlanta-based artist Kathleen Delaney with the hope of supporting and promoting Queer Femme visibility and desire through contributions to erotica, the sex industry, and the sex-positive movement. Body Heat has become a nationally known touring collective of fierce 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.

In addition to Kathleen, the 2013 line-up will feature published author and sex-workshop facilitator Jen Cross (San Francisco, CA.), The Femme Show founder & performer Maggie Cee (Boston, MA.), erotic writer and versatile performer Alex Cafarelli (Toronta, Canada), the graceful and elegant Burlesque dancer The Lady Ms. Vagina Jenkins (Oakland, CA.), femme-drag performer Asha Leong (Atlanta, GA.), published author Francis Varian (Durham, NC.), published author Kiki DeLovely (Durham, NC.), and featured guest Shar Rednour, author of “Femmes Guide to the Universe” (San Francisco, CA.)

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 also welcomes new local performers at all stops along their tours to promote local organizing and community and to give emerging writers a chance to express themselves.

Body Heat has garnered such praise as “THE best Femme porn writers in the country,” (Center for Sex Positive Culture, Seattle, WA.) The Body Heat artists are diligent in their role of assisting communities in forming and discovering a more complex sexual identity through art and performance.

Al Schlong sure is one sexy guy! Born of necessity, forged in the fires of the dirty dirty, radical as street sex, delicious as southern peach melting on the tongue. Al is one drag king not afraid to express his feminine side: cuff links, suspenders and bankers cuffs all make him leak a little pre-cum. Al Schlong is sleazy; he’s not the guy you bring home to momma; rather the one in the morning that made you feel like you’d stepped into a 70’s movie as the judgment-challenged heroine. Check out his Schlong on FB: www.facebook.com/aldirtysouth or Twitter: alschlong
