A history of Bike Smut



In the past four SIX NINE (!) years we have shared our program of erotic bicycle movies quite a few times, in quite a few places. Hundreds of screenings later we still have never had any leaks!

"How can that be?" you ask.

Great follow up question, thank you for helping us illuminate this idea further.

We do not make DVDs (generally), we do not send screeners to the media. The filmmakers privacy is sacred and we shall not violate that trust and even though selling DVDs would make this a financially viable institution, and sending copies to the media would get us a butt load of press, we say "nay!" (often with a stuffy, British voice). "Nay, we shalt cheapen the experience of gathering as a community together!" For once we see in each other these ideals we can't help from recognizing that freedom of movement via human powered transportation and sexual liberation not only come from similar origins but also deliver you to a beautiful future!

But we are cleaning up things around here, so this ever expanding list of shows that used to be available on the sidebar and caused much confusion is going to live in this dark corner of the Bike Smut blog from now on.

Thanks for the mamories!
