Smut Slam

Sex and verbal expression go together like latex and lube. That’s why performance artist Cameryn Mooreknown for her fearless sex plays "slut (r)evolution" and "Phone Whore"created Smut Slam, a touring event that puts fornication in a public and literary context. Moore is also a phone sex operator and says she was inspired to create the series after attending story slams, where her work was often the raunchiest. "I talk a lot about sex, but I know everybody thinks a lot about sex. So let's make a space where that can happen," she says.

Moore debuted the show in Boston, her hometown, in February and has since put on a series of Smut Slams in Bean Town and Canada. The Burque slam takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at Evolution Nightclub, at 7 p.m., and is co-hosted by local slammer Rich Boucher.

Moore stresses that she strives to create a positive, non-heckling environment. "There's no judgment,” she says. “There's just listening and the appreciation for either the exploration or the bravery or the humor that comes along with that."

Anyone interested in sharing stories of their most intimate moments in a crowd of strangers is welcome to sign up on the night of the event. Just bring a five-minute story piece based on a moment of sexual revelation (the night's theme is "I had no idea ...").

But it's not a full-fledged narrative orgythere are rules. Eight to 10 entrants will be randomly drawn and given the opportunity to share their tales. Moore will relate a story of her own. A panel of judgesincluding a phone sex operator and an erotica writer, who might also drop some carnal knowledgewill award sex toys and other goodies to the best slammers.

Moore will also be performing the aforementioned plays at the Orpheum Arts Space (500 Second Street SW) Thursday, Oct. 20, through Saturday, Oct. 22. She says whether you attend the slam or the plays, you're bound to learn a thing or two about yourself: "We all need a little bit of healing from the sexual dysfunction that our society has put us under."
