What is Velvet Tongue?

Ernesto Sarezale, ‘The Naked Poet’ created Velvet Tongue, London’s Quarterly Erotic Literary Soiree, in February 2011 and the event quickly grew in popularity and variety. In June 2013, Van Roberts travelled to London, read at the event and was immediately inspired. After a few wines, a chat and a Thai meal in Islington with Ernesto, Velvet Tongue (Aus) was born.

According to Ernesto, Velvet Tongue, ‘is an oral sex technique said to be immensely pleasurable. It was supposedly a favourite of Marilyn Monroe. She was quietly quite famous for her repertoire. The basic idea is to keep a warm viscous liquid in the partner’s mouth to enhance the pleasure of oral sex.’
