Erotic Fan Fiction

When

Gee, it’s kind of hot on the bridge, don’t you think? Why don’t you put down that tribble and slip into your casual uniform, Mister Spock, while I put on some Barry White and open a bottle of wine? And has anyone ever told you what big ears you have? All the better to hear your moans, Captain.

The worlds of fantasy and literature combine in this ever-popular event, in which our guests are released from the brig and run amok below decks, taking their favourite works of fiction and adding a frisson of galactic sexiness.

From Jane Austen to George R.R. Martin, our nymphomaniacs expose all the unspoken desire that simmers under the surface. Come down for a night of passion, pillow talk and heavy breathing as Erotic Fan Fiction loads its torpedoes and boldly goes where no one has gone before.

With Laura Davis, Kat Muscat, Sam Twyford-Moore and Lawrence Leung. Hosted by Virginia Gay.
