Smut #3: Moratorium

  • The Auxillary Art Center 3012 West Belmont Avenue Chicago, IL, 60618 United States (map)

"We rode the wave of elation from the last Smut event straight into Trump’s election 2 nights later. Since, we’ve been struggling to navigate our political and sexual lives in the face of more explicit threats. Days after we asked each other if we’d ever have sex again. We did, but we think a sexual moratorium is worth talking about, so that’s our theme for this month.

We're interested in writing about abstention, sexlessness, feelings of guilt over sexual pleasure, physical and/or emotional barriers to sex and how sex is a constant no matter the political climate.

Potential readers, please message Smut Reading Series on Facebook or email writing to submittosmut@gmail.com."
