Body Heat: Femme Porn Tour is a national touring collective of fierce Queer Femme smut/erotic writers, authors, performers, poets, and dancers. Garnering such praise as “THE best Femme porn writers in the country,” the tour was founded in 2007 by Kathleen Delaney-Adams with the hope of supporting and promoting Queer Femme visibility and desire through their contributions to erotica, the sex industry, and the sex-positive movement. In addition to Kathleen, the Body Heat lineup features author Jen Cross, burlesque dancer The Lady Ms. Vagina Jenkins, drag king Al Schlong and singer/writer/performer Alex Cafarelli.

Body Heat was founded in 2007 by Atlanta-based artist Kathleen Delaney with the hope of supporting and promoting Queer Femme visibility and desire through contributions to erotica, the sex industry, and the sex-positive movement. Body Heat has become a nationally known touring collective of fierce Femme porn/erotic authors, performers, poets, and dancers who offer a sizzling two hour performance, as well as a variety of workshops on sex and gender and erotic writing.

In addition to Kathleen, the 2013 line-up will feature published author and sex-workshop facilitator Jen Cross (San Francisco, CA.), The Femme Show founder & performer Maggie Cee (Boston, MA.), erotic writer and versatile performer Alex Cafarelli (Toronta, Canada), the graceful and elegant Burlesque dancer The Lady Ms. Vagina Jenkins (Oakland, CA.), femme-drag performer Asha Leong (Atlanta, GA.), published author Francis Varian (Durham, NC.), published author Kiki DeLovely (Durham, NC.), and featured guest Shar Rednour, author of “Femmes Guide to the Universe” (San Francisco, CA.)

Along with an arsenal of erotic song, dance, camp, poetry, smut, and prose, the femmes are often joined by special guests, such as celebrated sexologists and authors Carol Queen, Diana Cage, and Shar Rednour. Body Heat also welcomes new local performers at all stops along their tours to promote local organizing and community and to give emerging writers a chance to express themselves.
