Pretty much, today's whole paper is a hog-tied, historical, self-confessional smutfest of San Franciscan proportions. It only makes sense, because I dare say this week of sex events will reach levels of debauchery that even the City by the Bay can be happily ashamed of.
Yep, it's the Folsom Street Fair sex events column! Including things that aren't Folsom Street Fair also, like Mission Control's genderqueer play party, a Good Vibes film fest, and an art exhibition that'll leave you panting.
Indie Erotic Film Fest short film competition and party
The culmination of a week of alternative porno presentations, tonight's docket includes short blue films from around the world – something for everyone in this wild and wooly world of voyeurs. But cum early – the pre-screening party in the top floor of the Castro is gonna be balls, or at least mustaches. There's a mustachio-ed photobooth and even more titillating, burlesque dancing courtesy of Twilight Vixen Review.
Thu/22 party 7 p.m., screenings 8 p.m., $10 each

Steam does Folsom
Get squeaky-durty at this installment of Steam, the SoMa bathouse resurrection party. So many ways to play: enter into the wet towel contest ($100 prize for the best terrycloth tease), massages for $1 per minute, cheap drinks, cheaper go-gos, and hard crusing into the kinkiest weekend in the Bay. Tunes by Honey Soundsystem's DJ Peeplay help you get some.
Fri/23 9 p.m.-2 a.m., $8 cover to benefit the SF Bay Area Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

San Francisco erotic art exhibition
From the candy-coated gazes of Yancy Mendoza's models to the unique sextaur sculpture stylings of Peter Keresztury, there will be enough images of penetration, playtime, and penis at this group art exhibition to merit a stopover in your weekend of hedonism rendered art.
Fri/23, 4-9 p.m.; Sat/24, 1-9 p.m.; Sun/25, noon-5 p.m., free
The Artists Alley

Show Me Where it Hurts
Sardine-pack into a crowd of the hottest, kinkiest dykes on the scene at this free party at the Lex. But dress to impress: Elizabeth and Buck Wilder are performing, DJs Jenna Riot and Durt are spinning... you'll wanna look whip-smart at the night's fetish-uniform costume contest.

Folsom Street Fair
400,000 fetish fans packed into 13 sunny city blocks – the mother of all fetish fairs takes over SF this weekend. Check for hard-bodied, sweaty-fisted action all over the place, but also the annual erotic artist's corner and two stages of live music all day. Oh and hey, for a rad look at women's role at the fair over the years, check out Amber Schadewald's cover story on the SF girls of Leather from early this summer.

Deviants: Official Folsom Street Fair after-party
There's gonna be so much bump and grind at this union of Honey Sound System, Some Thing, and Hard French DJ crews that your harness will go bald. It's only right – a minutes-long stumble from the main event in SoMa today gets you to the Erie Street cul-de-sac that Public Works looms over. Today, it'll be blocked off for a outdoors-indoors party that have you screaming for more. The party features the hostessing powers of Sex Issue star Princess Donna http://bit.ly/oQu9mn and a photo confession booth staffed by queer porn maven Courtney Trouble.
Sun/25 3 p.m.-4 a.m., $20-30
