The Seattle Erotic Art Festival is proud to present featured literary work from poets, short story authors, and playwrights from all around the world. Created in 2009 to highlight writing and other literary works as an important expressive art form, the literary component was the first of its kind at any erotic art festival. The Pan Eros Foundation's mission is to promote a diverse personal and cultural acceptance of consensual sexuality through education and the arts. It offers consent-based workshops, regular monthly events, artistic events, social and support groups all in a safe, welcoming space. Pan Eros Foundation hosts on an art festival every year to further promote a sex positive culture.
