All Benni wants for Valentine's Day is you ... and another tattoo.

The first Suicide Girls event I attended was a prom several years ago, before SGs became minor celebrities, appearing on Real Sex and in Dave Grohl's video and touring the country with Warped Tour or their own burlesque show. It was held at some dive bar near the Tenderloin, the kind of place where you drink cheap beer and don't want to put your jacket on the ground. My how things have changed. Now, the alt pin-up site will co-host an event at the swanky Supperclub for Valentine's Day. The event promises to be interesting eye candy for casual observers and hardcore SG fans alike, as not only will tattooed and Manic Panic-ed sexpots be in attendance, but performing aerial tissu and go-go dancing. And since SGs also have come a long way since their original underwhelming live performances -- thanks to an influx of models who also are talented performers, as well as better stage management and choreography -- chances are the shows will be worth seeing for more reasons than just witnessing your online masturbation material come alive. (Though that's as good a reason to go as any.)

Exciting news for the financially challenged! It's possible to join only the after-party portion of the event for a mere $10 (less than an SG subscription!) if you pre-purchase tix here . You're welcome.
