Celebrate LUPERCALIA “the Original Valentine’s Day” this Saturday Feb. 14th in Bonoboville!

“Long before ‘50 Shades of Grey,’ there was lusty Lupercalia in red. And it’s coming back!” –Susan Block, Ph.D.

This Saturday night, February 14th, HBO sexologist and Bonobo Way author Dr. Susan Block, will celebrate LUPERCALIA, the original pagan Valentine’s Day, at her world-famous studio and “Speakeasy” in a charming old converted motel, surrounded by beautiful erotic art, romantic balconies, state-of-the-art sex toys, Juxleather Lupercalian whips and floggers, an OPEN BAR and an Aphrodisiac Buffet in the Garden of Earthly Delights called “Bonoboville” LA. Click here to RSVP or call 310-568-0066.

“The idea of honoring exclusive, expensive, romantic love on Valentine’s Day is a relatively new invention,” explains Dr. Block. “But the tradition of celebrating all-inclusive, free and natural lust around February 14 pre-dates classical times when prehistoric Romans put on the LUPERCALIA, a festival of Faunus (the Roman Pan), communal pleasures, purification, fertility, the rush of hormones, the howl of the wolf, the crack of the whip and the coming of Spring. That is what we’re going to celebrate this February 14th.”

Valentine/Lupercalia in Bonoboville LA is open to couples and singles. Special celebrity guest couples include Lupercalian Angels Amor Hilton & Ron Jeremy, Miley Cyrus erotica double Miley May & poly partner Brett Ravage, AVN Hall of Famer Alana Evans & hubby Scott Evans, Haley Sweet & Dark Phoenix + pop singer Jessica Shores, Rainey Lane, JuxLii, Amanda Blow, Jenny Buss & more TBA.

“If the hard-candy hype, pressure and commercialism of Valentine’s Day is giving you a toothache, consider joining us for the un-sugar-coated and delicious holiday of Lupercalia,” says Dr. Suzy. “Better to have your buns beaten (consensually, of course) than your heart broken. And speaking of the quintessential symbol of V-Day, doesn’t that so-called ‘heart’ looks a lot less like the cardiac organ than a well-whipped derriere?”

Valentine LUPERCALIA Rising This Saturday on The Dr. Susan Block Show

“Happy Lupercalia! Forget Candy and Flowers! Enjoy Whips and Floggers!  And remember: the Valentine ‘heart’ is no cardiac muscle, but a nice, red, well-whipped butt,” says Dr. Block

This Saturday night, February 16th, The Dr. Susan Block Show will whip it up for Lupercalia, the original Valentine’s Day. Honoring exclusive, romantic love on Valentine’s Day is a relatively new invention, created by the Catholic Church and commercialized by Hallmark.  But the tradition of celebrating all-inclusive wild lust in mid-February dates back to the Lupercalia, the prehistoric Roman festival of communal sexuality, purification and fertility, the rush of hormones, the howl of the wolf, the crack of the whip (the februa) and the coming of spring.

This Saturday’s LUPERCALIA Rising is part of Eve Ensler’s international campaign against rape and violence, One Billion Rising: Strike, Dance, Rise Up.

Joining international sexologist Dr. Susan Block in her Womb Room broadcast studios will be fetish star and female ejaculatrix Eden Alexander, Kink.com BDSM performer and martial artist Sebastian Keys, latex fetish starlet Idelsy Love, the return of world-class lifestyle domina Mistress C, and DrSuzy.tv award winner and Nightmoves TS performer of 2012 Tiffany Starr.

Valentine/LUPERCALIA Rising will air live February 16th, 2013, 10:30pm-Midnight PST on The Dr. Susan Block Show. Listen FREE at http://tinyurl.com/RadioSex.  Call-In Free: 1.866.289.7068.
