SAN FRANCISCO — The Celebration of Sleaze! Gay Porn Panel, Clip Show and Screening event is slated for Sept. 20 at the San Francisco LGBT Center as part of Good Vibrations’ sixth annual Indie Erotic Film Festival.

The gay porn summit will offer a look behind-the-scenes and on-screen at adult film-making with short scenes from Naked Sword, Raging Stallion Studios, Falcon Entertainment, and Treasure Island Media, followed by a panel discussion exploring the cinematic, aesthetic and erotic visions of the top gay porn producers in the world.

The lesson in local pride begins with Michael Stabile presenting his short film “Smut Capital of America.” The film spotlights the year 1970, when San Francisco became the first city in the country to effectively legalize pornography, turning the city into a boomtown for erotic movies. Featuring John Waters, Kathryn Reed, Don Romesburg, Habib Carouba, Jeffrey Escoffier, Marty Rosenthal, Vaughn Kincey, John Karr, this documentary explores the people who fomented this cinematic revolution.

Featured panelists include: Jack Shamama, Product Manager at NakedSword and editor of GayPornBlog; Chris Ward, president of Falcon Studios / Raging Stallion; Kent Taylor, vice president and chief photographer of Falcon Studios / Raging Stallion; Gehno Sanchez, director of PR, community development and production team member at Treasure Island Media; Michael Stabile, journalist and director of “Smut Capital of America,” and John Karr, porn reviewer, co-founder of the SF Jacks and guest lecturer of gay sexuality and erotology at SF State University and the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality.

The  panelists will present a short clip from each of their studios and then explore questions about the changing landscape of gay porn, moderated by Good Vibrations’ Staff Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen.

Good Vibrations presents five nights of diverse screenings at venues throughout San Francisco as part of its sixth annual Indie Erotic Film Festival from Sept. 17–22.
