Posted on January 20, 2011


Press Release: A Classical-Tribal-Astrophysical Celebration of Love, Lust and Communal Ecstasy

At The Dr. Susan Block Institute for Erotic Arts & Sciences


Drop Pocket Rockets, Not Patriot Missiles

Though the Hallmark holidays are over, the most exciting celebration of the year is yet to come! But it’s your last chance to make reservations for EROS DAY at the Dr. Susan Block Institute’s sizzling hot new Womb Room, this Saturday night, January 22. Eros Day celebrates, as The LA Weekly’s “LA After Dark” columnist Barbie Davenport puts it, “love, lust and all things awesome.” More specifically, the holiday honors Eros (Cupid to the Romans), the primeval god of love, lust and life itself, according to classical mythology, and a little phallic planetoid, according to modern astronomy, as well as the “Spirit of Eros”—the philosophy of peace through pleasure and the feeling of passionate love. Ancient Greek festivals of Eros date back to 1800 BCE, and at the turn of the 21st century, inspired by Eros Day founder Lasse Braun, international sexologist Susan M Block, Ph.D. began hosting annual Eros Day celebrations on January 22 when the planetoid 433-EROS, discovered by astronomer Carl Gustav Witt in 1898, spins closest to Earth.

Not that one needs to be watching a computer screen or swimming in a sea of naked bodies to celebrate Eros Day. As Dr. Block says, “there is no greater way to honor Eros than by making love to someone you love…even if that someone is you.”
