Watch out for shows to enjoy together in the future (they’re on hold do to COVID, currently) or find tutorials for simple burlesque tutorials on YouTube to make this Valentine’s Day one you’ll remember.

Erotic poetry

Nothing will get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day quite like an erotic poetry session. Enjoy the Poetic Foreplay Pre Valentine’s Day Show in Warren or Valentine’s Erotic Night in Detroit.

Exotic dancing

While you could certainly sign up for a tango class, dance facilities across metro Detroit now offer something more interesting: Exotic dancing. Vixen Dance is offering exotic, chair and pole dancing courses for all skill levels. Age restrictions and dress codes may apply.
