Touch Yourself

May is here and it's National Masturbation Month. Femina Potens is celebrating with the show I Touch Myself, featuring women artists exploring the subject. Ellen Stagg, Suzanne Shifflett and Cristy Road offer stimulating visual art, along with powerful performance art by Twincest.

Femina Potens' display windows will feature a provocative installation by Chrystal Powell (an artist who is one of the awesome Femina Potens volunteers - Happy Volunteer Week, everyone). It's part of the San Francisco Arts Commission's "Outside Looking In" public arts program, and we're glad to be participating.

Come to the opening this Saturday, May 3, 7-10 pm, to check it all out.

For a tease, Cristy Road's print Emancipation Masturbation (shown above) is available online (only $20!) in the Accessible Art Store, along with a handful of her older works. But you'll have to wait for I Touch Myself to access all of her gorgeous prints.

A shout out to Jennifer Lynne, who has just started a blog for her design label Porcelynne Lingerie. She's revamping the business, coming out with new sexy eco-chic designs and clearing out the old fashions in a big sale. It's nice to hear her plans, and there's a sweet picture back from a time she was a cigarette girl posted to the new blog.

Finally, don't miss Friday's double bill at Femina Potens. May 2 at 6:00 Cake and Kink presents a Q&A with author Laura Antoniou, followed at 8:00 by Open Eyes Queer Film Night with Jed Bell, Samara Halperin, Katastrophe (a.k.a. Rocco Kayiatos), Trannymals, Debra Wilson, and a short film open mic for your creations under 5:00.
