Burlesque heroine Baroness Eva Von Slüt knows what she's got, and she's happy to show it to you. The inked, buxom platinum blonde dove into burlesque in 2002, but she's never been afraid of flaunting her dangerous curves onstage. "Whatever the thing is that women have that they hate their bodies, I just don't have it. I don't compare myself to other people because I know I look good." Von Slüt produces her own burlesque shows, plays party-jumping jams with partner DJ Mod Days, and heads up the vocals for no less than two sexy bands — Thee Merry Widows, an all-girl psychobilly explosion of fishnets, red lipstick, and leather dresses, at whose shows Von Slüt will bust out in pasties and sequined panties, and the White Barons, a stripped down, hard-edged punk outfit in which Von Slüt lets her rebel growl loose. So what gets this freight train whistling? Purrs the lady, "Self-confidence and kindness. Also, I am a bit of a cougar, so gentlemen 10 years younger. I'm not opposed to men my age or older, but gosh they're just so sweet when they're young!"

There are a lot of gay musclemen at the Folsom Street Fair, and there are a lot of steamy, shirtless gay man-parties surrounding the event (causing quite a few Monday morning tragedies). But what about everyone else? "I was talking to my friends at Kink," says Folsom organizer Demetri Moshoyannis, "and they said that once the fair ended, all the leathermen had a place to go, but everyone at the Kink booth just had to go home. So this year we teamed up with them to change that." The result? A glorious-sounding omnisexual dance party called Deviants that's open to everyone. The acknowledgment that gay muscle men aren't the only ones who can get down and dirty into the wee hours is refreshing. But so is the musical lineup — the Juan Maclean, Zach Moore from Space Cowboys, Australia's Stereogamous — which offers something beyond the carnival circuit-music at many of the other parties. Musclemen are welcome, too, of course, as long as they're willing to shake their chains on the dance floor.
Sun/26, 6 p.m.–2 a.m., $30 advance. 525 Harrison, SF. www.folsomstreetfair.org/deviants
It's not too many harems that offer you 40 different ways to satisfy your cravings. But hot, lip-smacking loving can be yours — in three different locations or for delivery, no less! — whenever that urge to do something naughty hits, whether you like it on your lunch hour or for a post-bar dirty stopover. Oh, Pizza Orgasmica, you sure do know what gets us going. The local chain has umpteen big, salacious pies with nookie-themed names for your perusing. And although the Ménage à Trois, with it's cuddle puddle of five salty cheeses, will leave you panting, and the Latin Lover's barbeque sauce, chicken, zucchini, onions, and cilantro make for a meaty, spicy affair, the sluttiest pie award has got to go to the Farmer's Daughter. She looks like a demure little milkmaid (after all, you can find her on the vegetarian menu) — but once her drizzles of creamy bianca cheese hit your tongue, and her fresh corn and broccoli fill your mouth ... it's a tumble in the hay you won't soon forget. Old MacDonald would be scandalized.
