Some Like It Hot: A Night of Erotic Art and Performance

Guests queued around the block to get into Sotheby’s Erotic party which was literally the hottest ticket in town on Valentine’s Day. The evening at New Bond Street featured eye-popping performances from some of the Burlesque scene’s biggest stars, who were dressed by the event’s sponsor Coco De Mer. The brand’s ambassador Pamela Anderson topped a guest list that also included Erotic Review editor Rowan Pelling, who wrote the introduction to the sale, and Europe’s premier showgirl Immodesty Blaize. Treats on offer to complement highlights from the upcoming sale included oysters, chocolates from L’Artisan du Chocolate and Brockmans Gin. Click ahead to see highlights from the event.
