Bob Johnson

SAN FRANCISCO — Independent filmmakers from around the world will show their stuff in seven minutes or less at Good Vibrations’ 7th annual Quickies Short Erotic Film Competition on Oct. 26 at the Castro Theatre.

Scheduled to appear is alt porn star Joanna Angel sharing her film “Fuckenstein,” an XXX-rated homage to the horror classic featuring “a monster with monstrous proportions.”

Guests are invited to meet Angel and other filmmakers at the pre-party in the Castro mezzanine at the irreverent celebration of sexy cinema.

Also on the bill is “Das Randy Radfahrers," that follows two horny cyclists on a high-speed chase through the streets of Berlin. Attendees will also see a film that navigates the politics of a birthday three-way in “Reverse Cowgirl,” delight in the romance between a man and his blow-up doll in “Plastic Love,” and see a hero take it shaken and stirred in “James Bondage in Double O Sexy.”

Good Vibrations said with a dozen entries in this year's competition, there's something for everyone. Finalists include entrees from Australia, Germany, Canada, Israel, and the U.S.

Indie film queen and drag celebrity Peaches Christ and Good Vibrations’ own staff sexologist Dr. Carol Queen start the night with a Halloween pre-party in the mezzanine where filmgoers warm up for a night of sexy cinema with spooky tunes by the Cryptic Quartet, gory burlesque by the Can-Cannibals, cocktails, tasty bites, and sexy gifts.

The erotic short film competition will be hosted by drag divas Lady Bear and Hugz Bunny who join Dr. Queen and Peaches Christ to present the films “with a balance of irreverent humor and sexological insight.”  Audience applause chooses the $1,500 winner.

“Any way you like it — funny, serious, explicit, romantic, straight, queer, kinky, animated, or something else entirely  — you’ll be glowing after this quick and frisky romp. Creativity, originality, and humor come together for an outrageous night that everyone can enjoy, ” explained Good Vibrations’ film festival producer Camilla Lombard.

This year’s sponsors and partners include: LELO, Stockroom, Kheper Games Inc., Leather Etc., Vixen Creations, Twin Peaks Tavern, San Francisco Bay Guardian, East Bay Express, Bay Area Reporter, XBIZ, San Francisco Bay Times, Mix, Lexington, the Phoenix Hotel, Wet, Speakeasy Beer, Hot Cookie, The Sausage Factory, Evolution Fresh Juice, Good Releasing, and the Center for Sex and Culture.

Following the film competition on the next day is Good Vibrations’ first annual Sex Summit, a dynamic conference on America’s sexual state of the union with a series of panels and keynote presentations by author and research scientist Debby Herbenick Ph.D, journalist Brian Alexander, sex therapist and lecturer Dr. Marty Klein, and more.
