**Note: The post has been updated with information for the 2014 event, otherwise known as Naughti Gras 7**
Naughti Gras: The annual erotic, exotic, yet still classy art show where leaving your inhibitions at the front door is the only requirement, is finally here…and it’s better than ever.
Not only have they expanded to two buildings, the Koken Art Factory’s original location at 2500 Ohio as well as a new location at 2655 Victor, they will also be taking the experience up a notch…or three.
So what does that mean exactly?
You will you experience hundreds of hand-picked original works of art, an erotic market, live entertainment, a fun photo booth plus food and drinks…and that’s only one piece. The second building will host a brand new experience: The Tropic of Cancer interactive experience. A tour through erotically themed rooms influenced by the Henry Miller novel “notorious for its candid sexuality.” Each room will feature a different theme from some of the sexiest time periods and places.
“Visit an artistic Victorian brothel, a flapper and gangster filled 20′s speakeasy, a 1980′s era “gentlemen’s” club, a dance party glow rave, an erotic circus and so much more.”
The entertainers will include local and national talents, including performers from Gravity Plays Favorites, Mimi Le Yu, Indie Lou, Exotic Rhythms Bellydance and Ami Amore, Peter peculiar, Marie DeMars, Ritual Flesh Suspension, Miguel Scott, Sydnee Reese, Roxy Red Rockets, Maxi Glamour, Greta Garter, harem girls, aerialists, and more.
