‘ARTWANK! London Loves You, Baby’ Vintage porn, sex lectures and erotic performance
Featuring; Host and curator Ophelia Bitz, international exotica dancer Luna Rosa and ‘An Increasingly Brief History of the Muff’. Musical accompaniment by Tom Baker
ArtWank pairs slapstick comedy with vintage erotic cinema, and screens the strangest, funniest, most unusual footage available as well as encouraging porno-sing-alongs, debate and dressing-up. Porn is back, baby, and this time it’s interactive!
This month’s guest lecture is brought to you in the form of “An Increasingly Brief History of the Muff” A mini lecture on the iconic love triangles of early erotic cinema and its almost complete disappearance from modern porn. Part history lesson, part loving tribute.
Headline performance will be by Luna Rosa! Tantalizing tribal exotica in 3D! ‘Teaserama’ comes to life in the statuesque form of Ms Luna Rosa, a highly creative and exquisitely presented dancer, adventurer and cunning linguist. Dancing her famed ‘Huntress Love Call’ Luna Rosa will offer you toe-curling sexiness and sexploitation kitch in equal and generous measures. www.exoticlunarosa.com
Back by popular demand Maestro accordionista Tom Baker will be pumping his organ furiously to the flickerings of the silver screen and may just treat you to songs of treachery, vodka and sub-aquatic monsters. Or he may just eat your soul. “The unarguable highlight of the show” The Erotic Review
