Happy Pride Month everybody! This is neither sexy nor an event in the strictest sense, but anyone who doesn't kindle to forced body norms should know that we began this week with evolutionary psychology professors tweeting about how fat people shouldn't even try to get a PhD.

Geoffrey Miller, a University of New Mexico psychology prof had this to say on his Saturday afternoon: "Dear obese Phd applicants: if you didn't have the willpower to stop eating carbs, you won't have the willpower to do a dissertation #truth". Miller reportedly told UNM in response to the school's concern that the tweet was part of a research project, which doesn't seem right but who is to say what those social scientists are up to these days.

Props to "hate loss not weight loss" activist and friend of the Bay Guardian SEX SF blog Virgie Tovar for being less than satisfied with Miller's comment that the tweet was related to a research project he was involved in, and bringing his body predjudice to the attention of her Internet community. UNM is "looking into the validity of this assertion" about the research project thing. 

In other news, someone stole the iPad that belongs to Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis' girlfriend and now sex tapes starring the two of them are being shopped around to various porn companies. Francis' lawyer says they're doing everything in their power to stop the tape's release. We here at the sexy events column do not condone theft or nonconsensual publication of erotic images. But if you laughed there we understand.

Public Sex, Private Lives

We're kicking off floozy film fest season here -- between SF DocFest and Frameline, there's roughly a thousand flicks making their SF premiere that center on sexuality themes this month. This documentary on the lives of Kink.com's domme starlets is a great way to kick it all off. Director Simone Jude is an ex-Kink employee and her access to her subjects unquestionably benefits from a level of trust. Even avid fans will have a lot to learn from this look at a single mom, a bereaved daughter, and a grad student testifying in an obscenity trial -- who all make BDSM porn for a living.
