CLEVER Screen with Cheryl Dunye presents her film Mommy Is Coming

Thursday, July 31, 7pm, $10

About the film:

Pioneer filmmaker Cheryl Dunye returns with a sassy, raunchy, romantic sex comedy set in the edgy underground of Berlin where love and taboo affairs collide! Cute power femme Dylan (Lil Harlow) and studly hotel clerk Claudia (the sexy Papi Coxxx) are suffering from monogamous relationship blues. Hellbent to Claudia sets out on a gender-bending roller coaster-now as Claude-through a subversive Berlin sex club while her lover has threesomes with her best friend Teo (played by the incomparable Jiz Lee.) Everything comes to a climax when Dylan’s mother (world-renown sex educator Maggie Tapert) arrives in town hellbent on releasing some tension. Fun, provocative and interwoven with personal interviews, Mommy Is Coming is filled with sheer delight - in more ways than one!

Doing Your Dirty Work 3: Deeper, Closer

Anna Zusman
Opening Reception: Friday August 1, 7-10 pm
Doing Your Dirty Work 3: Deeper, Closer

August 1 – September 21, 2014
Closing Reception: Folsom Fair Sunday September 21, 4-7 pm 
free

Doing Your Dirty Work 3: Deeper, Closer focuses on work by Bay Area visual artists addressing themes of themes of sexuality, sexual identity, and gender identity in their art. Curated and juried by Jenn Moreno and Dorian Katz, artists were told “please do not censor yourself. Nothing is too perverse!” 

Doing Your Dirty Work is CSC’s annual group show of contemporary artists. This year’s show, as the title suggests, stays Closer, limiting submissions to Bay Area artists, and goes Deeper, presenting more work by each artist. By limiting the show to a dozen artists, rather than the usual few dozens, we hope to better allow the viewer to get to know each of these brilliant and perverse contributors to sexual culture making. Work ranges from embroidered doilies of porn star Sasha Grey’s face mid money-shot, collages of gay porn and auction house antiques woven together, digital prints of beloved artists lost to the AIDS Crisis in both San Francisco and New York, and racy yet old-fashioned pencil drawings of human-machine hybrids caught ‘in flagrante delicto.’

Join us at the reception to take a deeper, closer look at artworks by: Anna Zusman, Cricket, crissy bell snail, Emma Laughlin, Felicita Norris, gregory farrar scott, James Courtney, Jon Macy, Shayna Why, Shilo McCabe, Tyler Cohen, Win Mixter with Alex Fialho.

The San Francisco Drag King Contest has evolved into a huge community event where artists of all disciplines, including gender illusionists, film stars, burlesque legends and more, leave their mark on the stage like dogs in heat. Expect to see everything from lip-synching to mud wrestling to “other talents” that might make even the savviest viewer of cable access TV blush with delight. The show is produced and co-emceed by impresario Fudgie Frottage, aka: ‘The Man with the Biggest Balls in Show Business.’ Sister Roma - one of the most outspoken and universally recognized members of the Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence once again offers divine inspiration and sexually-charged perspiration as co-emcee.

This year, in celebration of our 19th star-studded year The San Francisco Drag King Contest will feature rock legend, Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go’s, aka comicon’s Lady Robotika and Mo B. Dick, the star of John Water’s “Pecker”.

A veritable Cavalcade of Kings will also grace the stage — performances by past SF Drag King winners including favorites Leigh Crow (Vice Palace, artist formerly known as Elvis Herselvis), old skool rappers?The Momma’s Boyz (SFDK’05), Arty Fishal (SFDK’98) DeeDee Luxe (from NY’s The Box, Fassbender’s “Shame” and Joaquin Phoenix’ “The Immigrant”), Fella-Fem (SFDK’08), Hamm Graham, (SFDK‘10) GQ Society (SFDK’11)), Kit Tapata (Mr. Gay ‘11) and more TBA. They all will be on board to keep the testosterone-fueled show pumping. This year’s DJ’s are Simone & Davide aka DJ DIE.

Most of all, the Drag King Contest would not be complete without the contestants! Contestants are judged on talent, creativity, studliness, sex appeal, originality, humor, make-up/facial hair and fashion. We are always looking for contestants. If you think you have what it takes to “measure up”, email dr.fudgie@gmail.combefore July 15, 2014. This year our illustrious panel of nationally known celebrity judges, includes: Jane Weidlin, Mo B. Dick, Princess Pandora of 107.7 The Bone’s “Ask A Hot Chick” and San Francisco Drag King Contest titleholder, Arty Fishal SFDK’98.

Relationship Survival at Burning Man

with Marcia Baczynski
Sunday, 8/17, 4-7pm
Center for Sex and Culture
Part of the magic of Burning Man is the altogether unexpected nature of what will happen. For one week, we step outside of our usual selves, finding God in a phone booth, discovering your true authentic self in the eyes of clown on whip-its, or stumbling upon the Barbie Death Camp and Wine Bistro.

But, all this novelty can be a strain on your relationship. Once you combine it with the heat, dehydration, strange substances, strange food and even stranger campmates, your previously lovely and wonderful partner may seem to have turned into some sort of dusty alien. A dusty alien you can barely stand.

Fortunately, you can avoid a visit to the Costco Soulmate Trading Outlet with a bit of preparation and foresight. In this workshop, led by open relationship coach and multiple-Burn veteran Marcia Baczynski, you’ll find out everything you need for your relationship to not only survive, but thrive, at Burning Man. We’ll cover:

Your #1 secret weapon for avoiding fights on the playa (especially those really, really stupid ones)
The real reason the Burn makes or breaks relationships
What to do when you have different ideas of what “fun at Burning Man” means
A quick and easy way to get the most out of your time together — and apart
Simple and practical steps you can take now to make your Burn together the best one ever
Plus, you’ll walk out with your own personalized guide for staying connected, getting what you both need and having  a blast during your time in the dust.

Whether you’re a virgin burner or going home yet again, join us for a hilarious and practical workshop that will help you make sure you get to enjoy your camp, your costumes and your favorite co-conspirators. Because “going to the Burn” shouldn’t mean “sitting in a hot tent processing.”

Get more of the sex you want—for gay/bi/queer male-identified guys
If you attended our free intro event, we’re going to go deeper and hotter and longer. The gloves are coming off, and maybe the shirts and pants too! This is not a sex party, but expect to have the opportunity to touch some skin. Underwear is staying on, but everything else is up for negotiation. And it’s all in service of your learning so that you can get more of the sex you want.  
It’s easy to know if this event is for you…
        Do you like sex? ☐ Yes ☐ No
        Would you like to have more sex? ☐ Yes ☐ No
        Would you like to have better sex?  ☐ Yes ☐ No
Did you check Yes to at least two of those? Most of us have some desires we’d like to fulfill but haven’t yet. Desires like:
        More connected sex.
        Feeling confident about your body and attractiveness.
        Sex with guys you think are “out of your league.”
        Letting go of sexual shame and feeling good about your desires.
        Sex with more guys or with one special guy.
        Trying sex that you consider kinky.
        Other __(what’s your desire?)___.
Whatever kind of sex you would like… …are you sometimes standing in your own way of getting it?
In this workshop, you will begin to experience:
        Fearlessness in the face of rejection.
        Rewiring your brain to say “Yes” to the sex you want.
        The two things you HAVE to know for more satisfying sex.
        Flipping the brain switch to make getting the sex you want automatically easier.
Would you like to get more of the sex you want easily, feeling really good about getting it and really good about yourself?
        ☐ Yes please (ok, register below!)
        ☐ Naw, no thanks (um… we don’t believe you… so register below anyway!)

Will have a ticket link soon, pricing will be $35 in advance/$45 at the door.
