Where better to talk dirty than on the techno-verse? Nowhere, that's where. Our fave SF sex blogger – c'mon, besides ourselves -- Fleur De Lis SF makes an appearance at this used-to-be (before it expanded it occasional East Bay nights) monthly storytelling event, as does Reid Mihalko, a sexpert who has made appearances on Tyra Banks' TV show, in addition to other seemingly unlikely places for a perv like him. Hot tip: Fleur De Lis just wrote about how Mihalko ahem, enjoyed meeting her the other day at Monika Thomas' Sex Geek Potluck – knowing these two, could a round two be far behind?
Bawdy Storytelling: Taking Dirty and Technology
It's shocking how often people use the Internet these days for things that don't involve sex. Well, not these folks. This month's Bawdy has assembled a top shelf lineup of pervs, including Allison Moon, creator of Burning Man's home for queer women, Camp Beaverton, and as-of-recently author of a new lesbian werewolf novel. Everyone will be talking about how they've used technology to get super viral. Sexting during the event encouraged.

International Ms. Leather 25th Anniversary weekend
So very much for leatherwomen going on this weekend! The International Ms. Leather celebration hits town on Thursday, and if speed tricking, uniform parties, and of course, the yearly competitions for Ms. Leather and Ms. Bootblack are up your alley, you'd be best served by getting down that of this weekend-long celebration of women in hides.
