Assuming the Ecosexual Position

8:00 p.m.

In celebration of Valentine's Day and this new decade pregnant with possibilities for change and transformation, acclaimed performance artist and sex educator Annie Sprinkle and her partner, interdisciplinary artist and activist Elizabeth Stephens, take you on a joyous and inspiring journey as they explore, generate, and celebrate love through art. They will weave their amazing stories, share some dazzling images, and do mini-performances about their experiments in romance, artificial insemination, breast cancer, sex education, performance art weddings, and other love-inspired projects. Currently investigating "ecosexuality," these two dynamic women are mapping a new field of research they coined "sexecology" — the place where sexology and ecology intersect. Perhaps you’ll discover that you, too, are an ecosexual. The evening's proceedings will also feature an erotic cake contest.  Audience members are encouraged to participate by bringing a luscious, lascivious desert of their own making. Every cake will win a prize. 7 – $10 sliding scale.

A delicious menagerie of street food and art, headphones hang next to seedlings and performances range between farm stands, mapping our queer edible history and projecting that history into an imagined future. Canning jars glow with the pink and green ferments of potlucks, food co-ops, and back to the land faeries, Nightsoil will invoke tastes of queer diasporas with recipes that blend the fruit of our homelands with the queer cultures we have created. Love Art Lab will be there to perform and share our Sexecology research. No one turned away for lack of funds. http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/111340
