What’s funnier (and sexier) than 50 Shades of Grey? Long before E.L. James turned her Twilight fantasies into a cash cow, there was Erotic Fan Fiction – a crowd favourite and unstoppable cultural phenomenon.
Not all popular storytelling is about duplicitous missing wives, dying French prostitutes (who sing) or playboy millionaires with a taste for BDSM. In this adults-only night of fantastical tales, anything goes.
Hosted by Virginia Gay, Romy Ash, Geoff Lemon, Zoey Louise Moonbeam Dawson and Ali McGregor will share a piece of self-penned smut about a celebrity or fictional character.
And just as the characters in these sex-soaked tales shed their inhibitions (and their clothes), our writers say goodbye to good taste and polite restraint, in favour of gasp-inducing humour and fantastical fun.
It’s all about sex, sex, sex … and celebrity.
