The poetry brothel (http://www.thepoetrybrothel.com/) is a great idea I must say. The concept is that it works like a usual brothel, in that you turn up, order a drink and then select the girl/boy of your choice (at least that’s how I imagine a brothel works!) except for instead of having sex with you, the “puta” reads you an erotic poem. Essentially, it’s a way of returning intimacy to poetry, which makes sense since reading an erotic poem to a crowd of people destroys the point a bit.
It originally started in the United States but is slowly branching out to other parts of the world.
