A visitor to our fair city tries her first Jucy Lucy. It is, and I quote, “SO GOOD.”

I got to have brunch with Rachel and some other folks on Sunday. She made the most of her weekend, taking in a Fringe show, visiting the Walker, eating at Matt’s, going to a cupcake meetup, and doing readings from her books at Amazon Bookstore and the Smitten Kitten (her reason for being here in the first place). I believe she’s going to the Mall of America today. A quick look at a lake or a river and she’ll have done most of the quintessential things for Minneapolis visitors. We strongly warned her that it would not be safe to visit again next year until May or so.

Rachel Kramer Bussel at Smitten Kitten This Weekend

NOT TO BE MISSED. If you’re into this sort of thing. Rachel Kramer Bussel is an expert on all things sexy (I refuse to use the word “sexpert”) and has written and edited hundreds of erotica publications. She has two events here this weekend, both taking place at that bastion of woman-centered sex positivity, the Smitten Kitten.

Rachel recently presented at Sex 2.0, a conference focusing on the intersection of social media, feminism, and sexuality. (Some friends of mine attended and gave Rachel rave reviews.) So you see how Rachel’s visit is a great fit with Smitten Kitten’s mission, right?

On Saturday:

May 3, 7 pm – 8:30 pm
Erotica 101 Workshop
Professional erotica author and editor Rachel Kramer Bussel will take you through the ins and outs of modern erotic writing, from getting started, finding your voice, writing against type, erotic love and lust letters, to submitting your work keeping up with the thriving erotica market. You’ll learn how to incorporate everyday scenarios as well as outlandish fantasies into your writing, and make them fit for particular magazines and anthologies. Whether you’re writing to that special someone, penning longtime fantasies, or want to earn cash for your dirty words, this workshop, taught by the editor of over a dozen erotic anthologies, is for you. Paper and writing implements will be provided.
