Hot sexy events: transman awardwinners and vibrator art

James Darling's (left) website sponsored the first FTM honor at the Tranny Awards. Buck Angel (right) took home the honor.

Somehow in the course of things I missed out on blogging about this year's Tranny Awards, LA's porn industry hat-tip to the best in transgender adult film. This year was particularly special -- for the first time transmen were honored with their own award category, sponsored by relatively new site FTM Fucker, whose founder is angel-faced James Darling. OG beefcake FTM actor Buck Angel won, appropriately enough. Hopefully in future years there will be new FTM stars at his level.  

In other news... my lord, has anyone checked out the James Deen store recently? Who cares if that NY Mag article sinks The Canyons. Fleshlights, baby panda t-shirts, posters -- the bulge in Deen's (back) pocket should be sizable regardless of box office returns, thanks to his legions of Deenagers, a term that apparently has little to do with age.  

Anyways, sex events. 

"Bling My Vibe" 

Who says no to creating a work of art with a $3 vibrating dildo? Not this writer — check out my handiwork, and that of other Bay Area artists and sexy local celebs at this sex toy art show on view 'til the end of the month. Check out the contest page for early looks at the competition. 

Fri/1-March 31, free. Good Vibrations, 1620 Polk, SF. tinyurl.com/blingmyvibe

Gay Men's Sketch art show

Mark I. Chester's erotic sketch class in SoMa churns out some top-notch renderings of gay male sexuality, so for fans of muscle, leather, kink, and lust should head to this exhibition of his pupils' best works. Not all of the drawings at this show are erotic -- Chester's class makes up merely a subset of the work -- but all promise gorgeous men in artistic poses. 

Fri/1, 8-10pm reception, free. Magnet, 4122 18th St., SF. www.markichester.com

The Great Church of Holy Fuck 

The name, the fact that this production is helmed by Annie Danger, queer trans utopia-seeker, the promise of nudity — surely these will add to a truly religious interactive theater experience.

Fri/1-Sun/3, 8pm, $15. Counterpulse, 1310 Mission, SF. www.counterpulse.org

Bondage A Go-Go

DJs Damon and Tomas Diablo make this fetish disco the place for non-chafe leather. Tonight's happening is a celebration of 20 years of kinky dancefloor exploits. 

Sat/2, 9pm, $15. 111 Minna, SF. bagg20-efbevent.eventbrite.com

International Sex Workers Rights Day picnic 

The Sex Workers Outreach Project and St. James' Infirmary are hosting this gathering of past and present sex workers and their allies in celebration of this day of commemoration, which started in 2001 at sex worker festival in Calcutta, India.

Sun/3, 11am-2pm, free. Dolores Park, 19th St. and Guerrero, SF. www.swopbay.org

"Porn-Star-Gazing"

Twitter has changed a lot of things, but perhaps nothing as much as the relationship between porn stars and their fans. The industry is notorious for its all-access policy on the social network -- and really, it's just one of many places where you can see the evolving relationship between adult actors and their audience. At today's panel discussion, porn performers Lorelei Lee, Mickey Mod, Conner Habib, Richard Pacheco, and CJ Laing will chat with sexologist Carol Queen about the different ways different kinds of porn stars talk with their fans. The event was inspired by the Nina Hartley fanmail exhibit currently gracing the Center's walls. 

Sun/3, 7pm, donations suggested. Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission, SF. www.sexandculture.org

It's high time you showed your own pussy instead of just covering the genitalia of everyone else.

Here kitty, kitty
You better move along
'Cuz the big cats walk
At the break of dawn
Now doggonnit baby
Oh, I said dog gone

Hey can your pussy do the dog?
Can your pussy do the dog?
Can your pussy do the houndog, baby?
Can your pussy do the dog?

Well, this whole mess useless now
As a whistle on a plow
If your pussy can't do the dog

I'm the king of the jungle
They call me Tiger, man
I'm gonna do the bird
If I can, if I can
My bird can do the dog
If your pussy can

Hey can your pussy do the dog?
Tell me, can your pussy do the dog?
Can your pussy do the bulldog, baby?
Can your pussy do the dog?

Come on, wag that tail
Baby, you can't fail
If'n your pussy can't do the dog
Hey, hey, hey

Hully, hully, gully
Hully, hully, gully
Hully, hully, gully
Hully, hully, gully

No pedigree from France
Will get you in the dance
Listen, your pussy can't do the dog

Hey, can your pussy do the dog?
Can your pussy do the dog?
Can your pussy do the poodle cut, baby doll?
Can your pussy do the dog?

Well, no pedigree from France
Will get you in the dance
Listen, your pussy can't do the dog

Come on and wag that tail
Baby, you can't fail
If'n your pussy can do the dog
Cha, cha, cha

Caitlin has zero tolerance for remarks on her pussy - she just enjoys writing stories on other people's pussies.

The Cramps are classic!

Dang Google images... will make change now :)

Who the fuck refers to themselves as "Pioneering Filmmaker or 'pioneering whatever' for that matter?"

It appears that only the wildly self promoting scenester operators from a community are allowed to inhabit the mystical world of the SFBG's constellation of people who matter.

And, help me here, I'm having a bit of trouble distinguishing the previous picture from the juicers I see at the gym. Sure, testosterone is not an anabolic steroid, but still.

You can take chemicals as a short cut to get a body like that, but the real deal is getting and staying that way over time without chemical assistance. There are several women at the gym who do just that without the benefit of chemicals, having to work it for it all. It can be done.

Culture is not that which people make together, it is what individuals can sell to others, and this stuff don't sell itself.

The new groups
Are not concerned
With what there is to be learned
They've got Burton suits
Ha, you think it's funny
Turning rebellion into money

I thought we couldn't use the word "Tranny." Did I miss an internal memo or something?

Posted by Chromefields on Feb. 28, 2013 @ 10:09 am

which is kinda the point.

Posted by marke on Feb. 28, 2013 @ 10:13 am

but hey, at least we can say "tranny" again! Thanks, Marke! Look forward to your next report on some new subspecies of sissybeat that no one has ever heard of.

And kudos to Caitlin for leaving in all the "pussy" comments. Our little girl is growing up.

Posted by Chromefields on Feb. 28, 2013 @ 12:01 pm

whatever you want. whether anyone ever likes you is, of course, a different yet totally related matter. keep on truckin'!

Posted by marke on Feb. 28, 2013 @ 12:49 pm

when you get pissy, kitten. If you're feeling tense, just dance it out!

Posted by Chromefields on Feb. 28, 2013 @ 1:38 pm

Your comments are an apt illustration of why this blog has to exist, congrats.

To quote Amy Sedaris, "How do I put this delicately? V-A-G-I-N-A."

To paraphrase Karen Finley, "Say it, woman, VAGINA!"

(Unless you'd prefer something else.)

The Cramps and the Clash in the same thread. "Turning rebellion into money" should be on the SFBG's masthead!

Posted by Chromefields on Feb. 28, 2013 @ 1:46 pm

All over
People changing their votes
Along with their overcoats
If Adolf Hitler
Flew in today
They'd send a limousine anyway

Thanks for any other informative blog. The place else may just I am getting
that type of information written in such an ideal manner?
I've a undertaking that I'm simply now running on, and I've been at the glance out
for such info.

"And I believe in this and it has been tested by research,
He who fucks nuns, will later join the church."

Don't think that I ever got to see the Cramps back in the day, I might have but don't remember it. Lots of the punk rock era was like that, there was no barrier between performer and audience.

But I did get to see the Clash 4 times, Dallas at the Bronco Bowl once, two nights in their hometown of Brixton, London, both in 1982 for Combat Rock, and the next year in Wichita Falls when they did two shows in Texas before the US Festival in 1983. Better late than never, the Clash was the best live band of any genre that I've ever seen, it was utter pandemonium.
