She will share some stories about the people she played with and the places she frequented plus show never-before-seen slides she took in the old daze. Expect dish and virtual, vicarious visits to the Hell Fire Club, Chateau 19, Plato’s Retreat, kinky Times Square, Avon 7, Eulenspiegal’s early years, the Sprinkle Salon, the Toilet, The Tryst, the Mineshaft, the Hell Hole Hospitol. Kinky porn, fetish fashion, pre-HIV debauchery, the NYC sex community’s response to AIDS, and the growth of New York City’s amazing sex world (not to mention Annie’s own rise to fame)! Her very special show is a must-see for San Franciscan veterans of the sexual subcultures wanting to learn more about our East Coast cousins, as well as for Annie Sprinkle fans, history buffs, and lover of New York City.
