Every month or so, poets and other literary types (in Victorian-era garb, because why not?) gather at the Poetry Brothel, a space where they perform intimate, sultry readings of their work. Last week, the group staged an event inspired by Cabaret Voltaire, an early-20th-century Swiss club that is considered the birthplace of Dada. Click through to see more titillating photos.

To Amy Plitt, I hate to nit pick and bring attention to this because I'm sure the artists told you they were in Victorian garb, but for the purpose of being accurate (this is after all supposed to be journalism) I have sifted through this photos and not a single outfit would be considered Victorian era garb. I could see a 1920's theme, but putting on suits and lingerie and flowing dresses does not make it Victorian, not even close. The men did not wear tights in the period and the women wore large bell shaped dresses and umbrellas.
