    GAME CHANGERS ft. JESSICA 'THE HEAD DOCTOR' HOLTER OF THE PUNANY POETS!

    in Poetry

    The world was introduced to this erotic poet thru HBO's "Real Sex" series; a racy, informative show about all things sexual, erotic, romantic, freaky.  It was thru this show that I learned more about erotic poetry and that it is a most romantic tool for intimate communication between lovers.

    Jessica Holter began her journey into the world of erotic Spoken Word art in 1995 as the Founder and Organizer of the infamous Punany Poets.  Made up of a beautiful, ever changing array of tall, short, thin, thick, fair, and extra mocha cast, The Punany Poets take you on a journey that is funny, sexy, informative, romantic, and naughty.  It is a total Mindgasm of Sight, Touch, Sound, Words, Dance, Art, and Erotica.  


    But Jessica is far more than just an "erotic poet".  She is quite prolific in Spoken Word and is both an Author and Activist.  With her art stemming from a history of sexual abuse, Jessica has turned her pain into one of the most alluring yet informative sessions one can ever go to and learn about sex - and Safe Sex.  As an advocate for this, she is supported by a host of organizations including the YWCA who attend her shows and hand out information about safe sex, answer questions, give prizes based on what you remember about the education of the show and more.

    I am honored to sit down with this woman and hear her story: one that has now been the subject of dissertations on the collegiate level.  But make no mistake, this is a GROWN, Black, No Sugar, No Cream Show.


    And yes, we will have something cooking up!

    I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Black Intelligentsia online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

    I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

    I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

    I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

    I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Black Intelligentsia staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)

    When we use the term intellectual, we are talking about people who struggle around ideas— writers, poets, scholars, researchers, teachers, students, and activists.
    Intellectuals are people who grapple with ideas and who function in the cultural, political, educational, and economic domains of the society.
