Erotic Readings, Dirty Bingo, & CineKink Screenings
Set for D.C. Area Sexuality Conference, March 15-17!The CatalystCon East sexuality conference is planning three featured entertainment events for Saturday night at the 3-day event. CatalystCon East will be held March 15-17 in D.C.-adjacent Arlington, Virginia. "One of the goals of CatalystCon is for everyone to get to know each other and make new connections," said founder Dee Dennis. “These evening events give CatalystCon participants the chance to interact socially and relax after a long day of intense conversations and sessions." The three entertainment events represent the moving image, the spoken word, and an audience participation game. Erotic writer/editor Rachel Kramer Bussel will host a special edition of her "In The Flesh" reading series, which features CatalystCon speakers presenting "stories to get you hot and bothered." Scheduled speakers include Reid Mihalko, Joan Price, Carol Queen and Regie Cabico. Sex educator and author Ducky DooLittle will host "Dirty Bingo" where participants can expect loads of laughs, story telling, and the opportunity to win fun and sexy prizes. CineKink, "the kinky film festival," will present "A Taste of CineKink," a specially selected program of films and videos that celebrate and explore the wide diversity of sexuality drawn from both the independent film world and the adult industry.
