Apparently we got everyone a little too hot and bothered with our bike messenger sex post a few weeks back -- the bicycle coitus backlash has already begun!
This news from LA, where the super fly Midnight Ridazz ride ran into some complications in the form of a drunk, cell phone-using driver smashing into a group stopped on the side of a road, injuring 11 cyclists. The police were quick to point fingers -- at the cyclists. After all, "alcohol, condoms, and marijuana" were found near the scene of the crime, as ABC Channel 7 reported. Clearly, the Ridazz were gearing up (ha!) for a late night bike orgy. You know how that saddle friction gets everyone all randy.
LAPD did offer this PSA-type release, which I suppose is intended to act as a mea culpa for being all sassy about adult beverages, smoking weed, and safe sex? At any rate, "bike orgy" should surely be the SF Bike Party's next theme ride. And now onto sex events for Pride Week!
Dirty young gentlemen, be aware: you're not to miss this grimy-beated, well-meated party time at SF's cruisey queer watering hole. Details? Write the story yourself -- all we can tell you is that DJs Taco Tuesday and Guy Ruben will be getting the soundtrack hot like a skin flick.

“Heart/Hand/Art: Erotic Moments from San Francisco's Lesbian Underground”
In a recent SF Station interview, Phyllis Christopher insists she "never, never wanted to shock people. I was having these amazing experiences and I wanted to talk about it." Surely shocking is not the right word for Christopher's florid shots of women in the throes of passion -- titty grabbing, peeking out between fishnetted leg passion -- we only flash on "sexy." But Christopher's intent was to document the lives of San Francisco lesbians. The erotica she captured is gorgeous -- a flattering portrayal of women loving women in the City by the Bay.
Thurs/23 6-8 p.m., free

Lexington Club Pride weekend
Let's be honest, it's a rat race trying to name your Pride parties with the sluttiest monikers in the city -- there's just too much competition out there. But the Lex surely has a leg way up, if there is such a contest. Honestly, it wins based on sheer quantity: Thursday dances out with "DTF," Friday flirts hard with "No Strings Attached," on Saturday you can "Tap That," and Sunday's climax (after a super-slutty brunch party -- oh, and the official Pride blowout, of course) is "Hit It and Quit It." Straddle you a lady lez and get down -- just don't spill that Pabst on her cut-offs unless you're trying to lick it off.

Mr. Kok Kontest
Kok Bar's keeping it hard and slutty for you all weekend, but the new kid on the Folsom block has some extra special for you planned for Saturday night: a contest to see who has the biggest dick -- though wait, isn't that the point of Pride Week itself? Anyways, it's been formalized here, so pack your binoculars, not much else, and head down.
Sat/25, free before 10 p.m., $4 afterwards

Pansexual Pride Party
Cap off your Pride celebrations (or gear up for Sunday night) at the Citadel's all-inclusive dungeon play party. Featured will be a demonstration by Mr. SF Citadel 2011 on how to successfully dominate a bottom twice your size. The website promises that it will produce experiences akin to "a chihuahua picking on a rottweiler."
Sun/26 5-8 p.m., $10

"Sex, Death, Laughter, and Disease: Writing and the Body"
Empower your body (and your prose) with this course, which will teach the skill of writing the corporeal form as protagonist. Sound a little English Lit-y for you? Instructor Lorelei Lee is an NYU creative writing professor, but check her clips before you dismiss this event from this column: lady's been featured in $pread Magazine, the anthologies Hos, Hookers, Call Girls and Rent Boys: Professionals Writing on Life and Love and Off the Set: Porn Stars and Their Partners -- plus, she's currently penning a script with Stephen Elliott.
Tues/28 (through Aug. 2) 7:30-9 p.m., $325
