The first show of Literature and Erotic Arts organized by the Medina Book Club in Tunisia, titled “Artgasme” will take place on December 23rd at el-Hamra Theater.
Mixing visuals, dance, music, singing, painting and theatrical readings of erotic texts, the show promises to offer the viewer “a subtle and enjoyable moment”.
Photographers as well as the painters will be present at the open gallery.
The show will be followed by a debate moderated by the young writer and founder of the literary spectacle, Notre Dame Des Mots, Sabrine Ghannoudi.
The history of Tunisian literature is full of pioneering books in this field, such as Guide of the Bride and Pleasure of the Soul, which is the most prominent encyclopedia about Arab women throughout Islamic history.
In this encyclopedia, Abu Abdullah al-Tijani included a range of stories and religious and linguistic facts concerning both the body and the soul of Arab women.
The most famous Erotic book in the history of Islam is The Perfumed Garden of Sensual Delight by Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Nafzawi which is a fifteenth century Arabic sex manual and work of erotic literature.
