The heat is on and Ernesto Sarezale brings his Erotic Literary Soiree to THE BOOK CLUB on Sunday 27 July for an aestival feast of words and carnality in its Summer Lovers edition. 

On Facebook:

The guest readers/performers are (in alphabetical order):


 PAT CASH    -    JACOB V. JOYCE    -    SUSANA MEDINA    -    RUCK 

Plus many OPEN MIC slots – NOTE: The pre-booked open-mic quota for July's Velvet Tongue has been met, which means that anyone requesting a spot after 13th June 2014 is going onto a "reserve list". There are usually drop-outs on the night, so most people on the reserve list will most likely have the chance to read/perform anyway (and will get in for free).

Doors open at 7pm; show starts at 7.30pm. £5/£3, free to participants. At THE BOOK CLUB, 100 – 106 Leonard Street, EC2A 4RH (Old St/Liverpool St tubes, Shoreditch High Street overground).

Velvet Tongue celebrates the hot, the sweet, the viscous, the carnal, the sexy, the racy, the provocative, the lustful, the voluptuous, the libidinous, the playful, the flirtatious, the teasing, the suggestive, the explicit, the romantic, the cheeky, the bold, the brash, the brassy, the flashy, the risque, the pervy, the licentious, the queer, the depraved and the downright kinky. And flesh exposure is always encouraged on and off the stage... As bare as you dare.

Spring Velvet Tongue 2014: Thanks!

Thanks to all the wonderfully sexy people who braced the Bank Holiday rain and made this year's spring edition of Velvet Tongue one of the busiest and most exciting to date. The features were as fantastic as expected (and beyond). And, not to be left behind, the open-micers surely kept the standards high. Pleased also that everyone on the open mic list who turned up got the chance to read, including those on the reserve list. And the audience was as gorgeous, warm and enthusiastic as ever. It got really hot and sweaty in the basement of Bar Kick... 

Velvet Tongue will be back on Monday 28 July 2014. Details coming soon.
