Making History at The Salon de l’Amour et de la Séduction

SDC L'Orage Salon de l'Amour et de la Seduction 2019 | Lexi Sylver

Welcome back to my playground, Lexual people.

This past weekend, from January 18-20, 2019, The Place Bonaventure Exhibition Halls were MY playground – and I shared it with a lot of sexy people!

Some of you came out to The Salon de l’Amour et de la Séduction (aka The Taboo Show) to check out the sexy fun, and were rewarded with informative seminars about sexuality, booths filled to the brim with sex toys, lingerie and fetish wear, a dungeon area, live burlesque performances and dance shows, and of course, THE highlight of the entire weekend – the SDC / l’Orage Zone Libertine.

This weekend, my favorite libertine club in Montreal, l’Orage Club – Espace Libertin, continued its trailblazing reputation within the lifestyle, by becoming the first club EVER in North America to legally accept its members to play as they wished within the Salon de l’Amour!

I confess – without shame! – that I was also one of the first to try it out.

The play area was blocked off with heavy black curtains from the crowd for privacy, but inside, it was a miniature version of what you would find upstairs at l’Orage – equipped with a few covered mattresses, some couches, a wash-up station, towels, wipes, condoms and other amenities to make the experience cleaner, safer and more pleasurable for anyone who wished to play.

And a lot of people thoroughly enjoyed themselves – apparent by the smiles and mussed-up hair they had when they exited the play area!

Outside this private area, SDC had set up a large dance floor where we could dance, and that was also where local shibari bondage experts Paco and Fanny entertained us with several shibari shows. During these performances, Paco tied up Fanny in a sensual, artistic way, and dozens of people came to surround them and watch. It was extremely erotic.  Check them out Shibari Fun here on Facebook.

Other vendors within the lifestyle were in the SDC / l’Orage section also, from erotic photographers like Ressan and Fabrice de Bray, to lingerie and fetish boutique Il Bolero, as well as various local libertine groups.

What we all had in common was our desire to contribute and educate others about our libertine mentality and way of life, of the sense of community we share, and the way that we celebrate sexuality rather than hiding ourselves away from society.

In the midst of all this, I presented several seminars on the We-Vibe Womanizer stage on two topics: How to Seduce with Body Language and Your Sexual Renaissance: Discover Your Self-Confidence.

Presenting these seminars was an incredibly rewarding experience for me, because after each of them, I had a bunch of people coming up to me to thank me for the presentation, ask me more questions, and also to talk to me about their own bodies and personal stories. This inspired me to consider offering individual coaching sessions to help others discover their self-confidence and improve their sex lives. More on that – coming soon.

L’Orage Club also offered a popular presentation entitled First Visit To a Sex Club: Are There Rules and Expectations? which helped answer a lot of people’s questions about how to behave within a libertine club, the importance of consent and respect, and the power of NO means NO. I know that their seminar helped debunk a lot of commonly held myths about swingers, the legality of sex clubs such as l’Orage, the erotic lifestyle and the practices of its libertine individuals.

I also thoroughly enjoyed seminars from my scintillating friend and sexuality expert Luna Matatas, who presented on Get Great at Going Down, Bigger and Wetter Orgasms, and Best Booty Sex. (Speaking of Luna, if you haven’t yet heard my podcast episode with her about How to Have a Threesome, check it out here!)

So not only was the Salon a success on so many different levels, but it reminded me yet again why I’m here, doing what I’m doing – to educate others, to help others find their way of expressing their sexuality shamelessly!
