SEX 2012 More swinging, less worrying over swing states. While Obama versus Romney rages, stupidly all around us, here we busy ourselves with what's sexy. Books, art, porn stars, leather mamas — here's some of our favorite sex spots in the Bay, today.

 

SEXYTIME

Were it not for Jacques Boyreau and Peter Van Horne's ravishing new coffeetable book of hetero vintage porn posters — we took a page from its reprint of 1982's Consenting Adults to adorn the cover of this week's Sex Issue — such gems as Flashpants (1983) and New Wave Hookers (1985) might be lost to the sexysands of time. Sexytime: The Post-Porn Rise of the Pornoisseur (Fantagraphics, 120pp, $29.99) is a lap-sized assemblage of colorful cinematic carnality — big-busted beauties, hilarious popular movie tie-ins, and every once in awhile, a muscled stud.

Boyreau was the proprietor of the dearly departed alt-theater Werepad in Bayview, so you know he has an eye for the wild and weird of the silver screen. His book brings us back to a time when porn was just as reviled as it is in these present days of virgin-brandishing Republicans — which leaves us with the comforting lesson that, no matter what the crazies are saying on Fox News, there will always be something to jerk off to.

All political-porno reassurances aside, there's another reason we love Sexytime more than most times: big budget porno required big budget lingerie get-ups. The lace 'n' garters, gauzy be-ribboned babydoll 'fits on the Teenage Sex Therapy poster — not to mention the décolletage-to-bellybutton drop fronts of the "jumpsuits" in Garage Girls (a film whose subtitle is "Best Lube Job in Town")? Ours, please. Let the weekend begin!

 

ASK A HOT CHICK

"We've answered questions on every topic from fisting and negotiating D/S to recipes and thread counts," says Princess Pandora, who hosts the "Ask A Hot Chick" radio advice program with fellow hot chick Nikki Blakk every Wednesday, 9pm-midnight, on 107.7FM The Bone. "There's a surprising amount of things in life that can't be handled with either more communication or more lube, but we're here to help out with the trickier situations."

Pandora, who's also a dancer-owner at beloved erotic dance co-op Lusty Lady (www.lustyladysf.com, check out the Lady booth at Folsom Street Fair), and powerhouse personality Blakk met backstage at a Rammstein show, and have been taking calls for the past year from cute and lovelorn ("One girls asked us about asking another girl to prom") and the fascinatingly weird. Each week a feisty new guest from the worlds of sex education, burlesque, or adult performance comes on the show to lend an element of surprise — and sometimes major star power.

"One of the most memorable things to happen," Pandora says, "was when Pickles Kintaro of Hubba Hubba Revue was on. She talked about her 'Weird' Al Yankovich tribute. He heard about it, tweeted it, and she sold out."

"So we know we reach a very broad audience," she adds.
