The Omnivore Pin-up Erotic Compendium

The Omnivore knows good sex*

*And isn’t afraid to ask… you to come to The Omnivore Pop-up Pin-up Party.

Our world-famous Pin-ups - dateable, intellectual and never without a book - will be sharing the literary passages that get them hot under the collar. From Jilly Cooper’s Riders to Norman Mailer’s American [Wet] Dream to Emily Dickinson’s racy graveyard antics, the evening promises a heady mix of a pleasure and perversion.

Read about how it all started in the Telegraph here.

Guests are encouraged to bring their favourite examples of erotic prose.Who needs Bad Sex when you can have good sex?

After the success of the Pageant last night at The Other Club, we decided to publish the list of the perverse and pleasurable poems and prose our Pin-ups chose. If you would like to ask any of them out, please write in to

More about The Other Club: a space for professional women in London founded by journalists Joy Lo Dico and Katie Glass. They are a pop-up space in Kingly Court just off Carnaby Street and are here for all the bright, brilliant women (and Pin-ups) in London.

The wine – Pouilly Fumé ‘Karine Lauverjat’ 2011 and Puy Castera 2007, Haut Médoc – we drank was provided by McKinley Vintners, an Agency House, and wholesaler for a range of ’boutique’ wine producers. It was delicious!

“One should always be drunk. That’s all that matters…But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk.” Charles Baudelaire
