West Philly Press and Rhapsody Hill Books are delighted to announce the release of Susana Mayer’s new book, Does Sex Have an Expiration Date? Rethinking Low Libido for Women (aged 35-105) and the Men Who Love Them. A Guide to Developing your Ageless Sex Life. The book is currently available through Amazon and will also be available through this site and at book release events in December.

Dr. Mayer will discuss her book at the Philadelphia Ethical Society on Monday, December 16, at 7pm, and also give audience members the opportunity to ask questions anonymously. Her book will be available for purchase after the talk and Q&A; book purchase that evening will include a discount for admission to the Erotic Literary Salon the following night. Books will also be available at the Salon on Tuesday, December 17, upstairs at the Time Lounge at 1315 Sansom St. Doors open at 6:30pm; Salon events (Adult Sex Ed and open readings) begin around 7pm.

Call for entries: Sensexual III

West Philly Press is accepting entries for volume 3 of Sensexual, the Erotic Literary Salon’s latest anthology.

(If you’re not familiar with the Salon, their website is – look over the site and guidelines to get a sense of what’s gone on there the 3rd Tuesday of every month since May 2008; maybe even come out to the next one….)

You don’t have to have read at the Salon to be included, although we will give priority to writers who have read there at least once. But if you have read there, if you’ve attended but not yet read, if you’ve thought about going, if you know someone who might want to go … we’re game.

We are looking for poetry, prose, memoir, rant, or generally anything you think might be a good fit. There’s no limit on the number of submissions, but they do have to be in text format (Word or Word-compatible preferred, Google Docs or plaintext are fine), and you must own the rights to publish them. If they’ve previously been published elsewhere we just need to know where they’ve appeared.

We’ll start reading submissions for review in August 2019. The tentative plan is to go to press in late Fall 2019.

Submissions and/or inquiries can be sent to
