A benefit for CSC's operating expenses, including its sexuality research library and archive, Kink Ink includes a silent auction of donated items, especially focusing on original adult comic art; a VIP reception featuring special porn-performer guests Fatty D and Golden Age icon CJ Laing, PLUS artists drawing art on live nude models; and a slate of performances by artists Tom Orr, Carol Queen (Peep Show), Jukie Sunshine, Marie Wade, and more!
April Flores is voluptuous alt-porn babe Fatty D (http://www.fattyd.com) -- the D stands for Delicious! The stunning April's real-life fantasies and adventures have been documented over the past five years by acclaimed artist Carlos Batts. Her newest video is Alter Ego: A poetic visual erotic tale, previewed on FattyD.com. Watch artists decorate April's sexy curves with original drawings!
CJ Laing, star of Barbara Broadcast (1977), Water Power, Anyone But My Husband, and other unforgettable performances from porn's best years, makes a rare appearance at Kink Ink with a video clip show of her most memorable scenes.
Tom Orr is an award-winning lyricist, playwright and performer, best known for his hit satirical parody revue, "Dirty Little Showtunes!" (1997 Bay Area Critics Circle Award). His talents have also been on display as "The Perky Little Porn Star" in "Naked Boys Singing!" He is also known as Mr. Dore Alley 2004 and Mr. Nude Russian River 2004 & 2005.
Carol Queen looks back to her days in Lusty Lady's Private Pleasures booth in a snippet of her full-length solo performance, Peep Show.
Second-generation comix legend Mark Bode -- creator of Miami Mice, gifted tattooist and contributor to pubs from Heavy Metal to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Hustler -- heads the live-art-on-naked-models contingent for the second year in a row, joined by other artists making unique body art before your eyes! Digital prints of the body art will be available for purchase onsite. "Culinary speakeasy" Ghetto Gourmet again caters the reception. The San Francisco Chronicle calls underground sensation Ghetto Gourmet "one of the hottest restaurants in the Bay Area that you have never heard of." http://www.ghetto-gourmet.com
Artist contributors to Kink Ink include Mark Bode, Alison Bechdel, Annie Sprinkle, Charles Gatewood, Donna Barr, Colleen Coover, Paige Braddock, Terry Moore, Jennifer Camper, Leanne Franson, Michael Christopher, David Kelly, Heidi Wyckoff, Carol Queen, Ruby Pearl, and more! Newly added: work by Isabel Samaras, Justin Hall, Michael Rosen, Larry Utley, Fran Frisch, Jay Lake, Joe Demaree, Heather Weitman, M. Woolson, and more! Some of the artists have donated multiple pieces. Extra special offbeat stuff from the Center for Sex & Culture's archives! Gotham's Fantasies artists will donate a percentage of any sales to CSC as well. Many Kink Ink donating artists will be on hand for the event, held the same weekend as the Alternative Press Expo.
Auction payments may be made via cash, check, or Paypal (we will have a computer on site for people desiring to use Paypal).
And the previous night, 4/7, don't forget the prequel: the opening night for Gotham's Fantasies! Dress like a superhero or villain. More detail at http://www.sexandculture.org/pages/upcoming-events-at-CSC.html
