This week has us reaching back through the mists of time for our sex events -- you don't think you just evented that move from last week's date yourself, did you? Every moan, every thrust, has been brought to you in part by our ancestors (except for the extensive acronyms on Craig's List, most of those are today's originalities). So let's bring it back, shall we? This week you get the chance at SF Citadel's Sadie Hawkins to recall those butterflies produced by asking out that alpha dog to the high school dance, or for lovemaking even more steeped in antiquity, head to Good Vibes' lesbian tantra tell-all. Just don't expect these traditions to have gone un-improved throughout the years -- after all, the Kama Sutra's only got 64 positions on it's pages. I think San Francisco's got it beat by a couple dozen.
The ancient art of love is just so dreamy, but the thousand year old illustrations in the Kama Sutra can be so heterocentric. Fear not, lady lovers, for sexpert Pamela Madison has you covered -- in slick perspiration, creative positioning, and deep luxurious breath. Please note: clothes that allow for a bit of freedom of movement is preferred. Oh yes.
Wed/5 8-10 p.m., $25 single/$45 pair pre registered, $30 single/$50 pair drop-in
