Hop on The Porny Express
Last summer I celebrated my bike polo 10 year anniversary! It was AWESOME and it wouldn't be possible without the network of rad bikers all over the world.
For 7 of those 10 year I have curated for Bike Smut, a touring program of erotic bicycle films. We are quite possibly the most ethical graphic content anywhere and we are touring with an all new program now (one of which features hardcourt bike polo)!
Bike Smut works to create communication about sex, gender, identity and transportation in a positive way. Through workshops, dance parties, lectures, discussion groups, potlucks, craft nights, POLO TOURNAMENTS and naked/underwear/themed bike rides Bike Smut helps communities define obscenity. The shared experience brings the private matter of porn into the public, throwing the Victorian era taboos out the window.
Bike Smut is civic. Current political policies are designed to repress sexual expression and transportation choice. The Bike Smut film festival challenges that trend by enthusiastically displaying the quality of creative expression and the amount of fun inherent in both cycling and sex. Both actives are worth elements of a healthy lifestyle and a pleasant quality of life. -Jeff Jacobson
This year the submissions come from artists in Oakland, Vancouver, Chicago, Gainesville, Montreal, Berlin, Milan and Zuirch! Literally and figuratively all over the map. Above you see a few screen shots from this year's program...
Bike Smut 7: The Porny Express
We dont put films online or on DVDs, the only way to see it is at a screening of consensual adults. Sex is everywhere in our culture but unless we take the opportunity to engage it directly we are limiting ourselves. Taken another way, if we are not mature enough to talk about sex we don't have any business doing it.
This year I am touring via bicycle. This is something we have not done since the original tour took us from Portland to Vancouver BC back in 2007 (back when I was among the world's greatest polo players). I plan to slay with as many of you as we can schedule but I need your help. Write me and let me know what days of the week you play polo. I have my own mallet but my tour bike should not be on the court so bring me a steel steed to rock, please!
Since we started touring in June I have got to play polo with clubs in Anchorage, Portland, East Van, Seattle, Ogden and Denver. These were some really great polo scenes, I hope you get to travel and play there yourself.
Coming up soon Ill be in Minneapolis (9/13), Madison (9/20), Milwaukee (9/22), Chicago (9/28), Detroit, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal before I start riding south.
Its gonna be a big challenge to ride and play and make all these dates but if we start working on it soon we can make some really awesome things happen. Ping me up!
