Hot sexy events: Getting (a?)head in the boardroom

I'll need those on my desk tomorrow.

I've been reading Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg's new book Lean In recently, which despite its rather class-specific advice and observations is a really great look at why we don't have enough women in power positions. (Hint, sexism.)

Sandberg is great on suggesting ways to circumvent the internalized patriarchy that we carry around with us, but a workshop that is taking place this evening (Wed/20) hosted by BDSM educators Society of Janus and instructor Beatrice Stonebanks takes another tack. In "Corporate Dominatrix Training 101," attendees will learn how to harness sexual tension and turn it to an advantage in officeplace dealings.

Controversial? Sure! Rest assured that it is not the only happening that'll raise eyebrows this week. Here's the next several days in sex events. Now give me a raise. 

"Corporate Dominatrix Training 101: How to Use Sex and Power to Increase Sales"

Do you lack the iron will to succeed in your current work environment? Let the Society of Janus (one of this town's go-tos when it comes to BDSM education) teach you how to become a office dominatrix. Truly -- this class focuses on the power of sex when it comes to the boardroom. Setting ground rules, negotiating, and how to do it all without compromises your professional stature will be cover in this one-off course. 

Wed/20, 8-10pm, $20. Women's Building, 3543 18th St., SF.

Bawdy Storytelling Slam

Another chance to be a pervy storytelling legend this week, as the open mic version of Bawdy Storytelling returns. This week's theme is "Under the Influence," and you will certainly be drunk off happiness if you best the field to take a spot in the Bawdy Slam finals happening later this year. 

Thu/21, 8pm, $10. Cafe Royale, 800 Post, SF.

"Puss 'n' Boots II"

Erotic photographer Michael Rosen wrote to tell us that two of his "best photographs" are in this group show. He's joined by a host of other artists, though we can't vouch that they are quite as good as Rosen at working with a hard-on (a skill that he told Amber Schadewald in a 2011 Guardian profile he has mastered.)

Through April 20. Opening reception: Sat/23, 7-11pm, free. Amelia Hyde Gallery, 521 Sixth St., SF.

"Art of Jacks"

San Francisco's most venerable all-male jack-off club is celebrated at this art opening, which gathers works inspired by the quick wrists and open hearts of the 30-year old group.

Through March 31. Opening reception Sun/24, 2-7pm, free. Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission, SF.

"How Hookup Apps Change Us More Than We Know"

For those who use them, hookup apps like Grindr have changed sex in seismic ways. Jaime Woo wrote one of the first books inspecting the phenomenon, Meet Grindr: How One App Changed the Way We Connect, and he'll be expounding on his findings at today's talk. Dick pic slideshow not included, presumably.

Tue/26, 8-9pm, free. LGBT Center, 1800 Market, SF.

Suicide Girls: Hard Girls, Soft Light signing

With 2403 models on seven continents, four movies under their belt, and now the publication of their third coffeetable book, the Suicide Girls have become a cultural force to be reckoned with. Pretty girls, rad ink, hot hair dye, what's not to like. This week they come to town to sign that third glossy tome, and will be partying at one of the Mission's favorite dive bars afterwards. Try not to drool. (And read my interview in this week's paper with SG founder Missy Suicide.)

Tue/26, 7pm, free. Mission: Comics and Art, 3520 20th St., Suite B, SF. (415) 695-1545,; Afterparty 9pm, free. Bender's, 806 South Van Ness, SF.

How I Came Out

Charlie Ballard may have made his mark as a local stand-up comedian, but this night of performance will go deeper than "didja ever notice when?" Guest stars -- including Joshua "Peaches Christ" Grannell share their coming-out story on stage.

Tue/26, 8pm, $10. 1772 Market, SF.


It would be nice if you acknowledged that the sexualization and commodification of women through pornography encourages sexual assault - something you profess to be "extremely" concerned over. Don't be part of the problem Caitlin - become part of the solution.

tedious. Is there really nothing more substantial to report?

Posted by Guest on Mar. 20, 2013 @ 6:13 pm

don't read them and STFU.

Don't protest so much, it's bad for you :)

We're going to keep making it about sex, sowwy.

Hm...sounds interesting!)))

What a bored sick fuck you are without a life of your own.

The pot just met the kettle.

Does your grandmother's lesbian sainted aunt know what you do here?

I do find it an interesting disconnect that SFBG cannot decide whether to be a serious and credible political journal or merely a vehicle to wallow in sex, drugs and rock-and-roll.

A bipolar entity.

Maybe I'll get fired, LOL.

Then again, if he is so clueless that he doesn't realize that you are doing all this on his dime, then maybe you'll get away with it.

But not on my watch, you wouldn't.

Posted by Guest on Mar. 21, 2013 @ 1:55 pm

You are so clueless as to the work ethic of the knowledge economy, like a tired old conservative stick in the mud.

Posted by marcos on Mar. 22, 2013 @ 11:44 am

know for a fact that you wrong. There is no employer who would tolerate the abuse of your time that you engage in by posting here all day, every day.

Posted by Guest on Mar. 22, 2013 @ 12:07 pm

They're not my employers, they're my clients, and I take care to meet up to my contractual obligations. Unlike anal freaks such as yourself, so long as I'm holding up my end of the bargain, my clients are happy with however I choose to organize completing my work.

Posted by marcos on Mar. 22, 2013 @ 12:22 pm

(which I doubt), you clearly could be doing more, but prefer to troll all day long.

Human relationships, beginning with fundamental economic inter-relationships, to political, social, cultural, and sexual relationships, are part of a seamless web. I enjoy the SFBG publication more for adding dimension and depth by covering the full range of the human experience even though I mostly read the political and economic stories. Since economic and political relationships have such a powerful impact on most of our other human and environmental relationships, it's refreshing that a publication puts these issues front and center, but still covers many of the joys of human existence which often include a fair amount of sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll.

Emma Goldman was right, "If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution."

I will stick to the essentials as events such as this one needs to be made according to the occasion. First impressions do count but I believe in giving the person a chance to get to know them first. This is why I say you shouldn't judge people straight away.
