Presentations, Porn and Parties: God I Love This City.

In less than 7 days the 2012 Feminist Porn Awards are on, which means Toronto is about to get flooded with a lot of sexy, smart people.  I’ve been trying to sound bite it down.. but you know what?  There’s just way to much going on.  So, blog post it is.

If the word feminist is a turn off for you; I challenge you to push past your prejudices for a moment and read on.  Maybe even hit up Thursday night’s Porn screening to see exactly what passes as ‘feminist porn’; I got $10 that says it’s not what you think.

(Heads up; not everything on this list below is ‘part’ of the FPA line up.  There’s just  a LOT of cool stuff happening next week.)

Tuesday April 17th – Comes As You Are brings in the Sex Geek herself for The Dance of D/s; which is all about using body language and tone to enhance your power dynamic.  Check out this descriptor tidbit:

This class will explore the use of body language and protocol to reinforce your dominant/submissive dynamic, focusing on grace, subtlety, confidence and attentiveness for both dominants and submissives.

Wednesday April 18Sexing the Transman, doc and talk with Buck Angel.  This is being held at U of T and if you’re a SDS or Cinema student you’re in for free.  I have no idea when this will be playing again in town, so I’m jumping on my change to see it this week.  Tickets available in advance and at the door.  Over on the East side of the city the Triple ‘s’ (subs, slaves & switches) Discussion Group is having it’s monthly gathering.  If you live or play on the bottom side of the kink scale you should be taking advantage of this fantastic local resource.

Thursday April 19Public Provocative Porn.  Hit up the new Bloor Hot Docs theatre for the year’s best in feminist film followed by a Q and A with Erika Lust, Buck Angel, Nenna and N Maxwell Lander (click here and scroll down to read about them. Tickets available in advance and at the door.

Friday April 21 – Feminist Porn Awards.  Welcome to the big event.  If you scored a VIP pass for the weekend you can head in early to mingle before the doors open to the public at 9pm.

Saturday April 22 – Learn hard by day; play hard by night.  In the afternoon Tristan Taormino will be showing different ways you can open up your relationship – and yes, it is geared to people in relationships.  And that night?  SWITCH PARTY!  And since it’s the FPA edition, Aslan is pulling out the stops with live porn shoots, bondage performances, pole dancing, and as always, the lovely playground of Oasis.

Sunday April 23 – Dirty Talking and Fat Sex. At Good For Her,  Tina Horn is guiding you in the world of Dirty Talk.  From flirting to seal the deal to using dirty talk to get in touch with those desires you may not even be ready to admit to.  Over at Come As You Are Courtney Trouble (perhaps fresh of a FPA win?) is talking Fat Sex,  Skip the theory and get straight into a discussion about  body positivity, self esteem politics, fetishization/ hyper-sexualization, erotica/performance, and tips, tricks, and techniques for having fat sex!

So; what are you going to?
