Post apocalyptic scifi porno gets you SPRUNG!

ITS OUR FINAL SCREENING!


May 29th
The theme is POLY-NOMADIC. Some find freedom in the ability to be with many partners, whomever and whenever they like while they wander the earth at their leisure. Yet others find the instability of those things a cage of its own. This week we explore how we get around.

SPRUNG! presents 'Cafe Flesch' by Rinse Dreem
Tuesday May 29nd
Clinton Street Theater
$7, 18+

     Cafe Flesch is a Midnight Movie classic. Born out of the success of a more artistic porn industry of the 1970s, Cafe Flesch mixes sex, satire and avant-garde theater. It is set in the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse, where 99% of the population is ‘sex-negative’ and the only way they can experience sex is by forcing the ‘sex-positves’ to perform for them. It won an AVN for best art direction and Stephen Sayadian (aka Rinse Dreem) went on make a few more pornographic b-movie shorts and classic features.
     That's right, its a post-apocalyptic sci-fi porno!! We thought would be a great way to end the series, and it was the top recommendation from our Austin Bike Smut host and pornographic blogger and curator, F*bomb.

Plus: 
  • A Bike Pornographers Almanac - "The grass is always greener, but why are these carrots orange?"
  • George Michael - A Musical look at Monogamy
  • Exert from - "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (1969)
  • Top Ten Bike-Sexual Movie Moments - Just like all your favourite end of season specials
  • With Special guest performers - HAMMERCISE - Mc Hammer + exercise = Hammercise.

The Spokeslut

Hello Bikesexuals!

Poppy Cox and her bicycle, Mademoiselle Margo

I'm Poppy Cox. I am half of the duo that runs this crazy world of bike-sexuality on a daily basis. I do not think I have officially introduced myself here on the blog. But you might have seen some of the posts I have written, or photos I have taken and shared on the Tumblr. You can also catch my 140 character musings on bikes, sexuality, sex work, feminism and other bits of fabulous on my twitter.

I am a feminist. I am a sex worker. I am a slut. I became involved in this project about two years ago. I had already identified as a bike-sexual about 6 months before. (I realized I was primarily interested in being with people who rode bikes.) I had also already decided that I wanted to become a pornographer while I was working at The Lusty Lady in San Francisco. I was around a much greater volume and variety of porn than I had ever been before, yet I still felt like there wasn't really something for me. I love film and I love sex, but I did not understand why the two were so hard to merge well. I felt the world of 'straight' porn was particularly lacking in alternative representations of hetero, but not hetero-normative sexuality.

Then I saw Bike Smut.

I thought it was the best thing I had ever seen in my life. I wanted to get involved, spread the word and make it even better.

Since then, I have traveled all over Europe and America. I have made two short films. One of which was featured in HUMP! and is currently traveling with CineKink. I am currently working on completing a film for Bike Smut 6 which I co-directed with the fantastic Courtney Trouble and will also be featured on her site. Nofauxxx.com 

My goal is to encourage people to ride bikes, and enjoy the fun and freedom that is inherent to that. I also want to encourage people to be more open with expressing their sexuality and desires in whatever form that might be. I aim to be subversive yet approchable and lots and lots of fun. Pushing peoples boundaries enough to open them up to new things, without freaking them out.

This is a really hard balance sometimes.

In light of being dubbed a 'Spokeslut' in a comment on a previous post. (Which I am SO excited about, cus how great of a term is that!?! Get it: 'spokes' like on your wheels and 'spokes' like talking. Totally a slut for both.) I do understand that someone was really upset and was trying to be awful mean. I also understand that internet comments sections tend to breed a very special kind of passive-aggressive hate that is usually worth ignoring, or might even work in ones favour.

But in thinking about the term, and how it was meant to shame me for my slutty nature. (I'm just some bimbo that is so brainwashed by the patriarchy that I cannot see how fucked up the image I created is.) I thought I would write my own personal slut manifesto. A declaration of how I want to live my life. I thought it might provide some inspiration or at least clarification for the rest of you out there. So here it is:

I will have as much or as little sex as I want, with whomever I am mutually attracted to, regardless of race, adult age or gender identity. This will fluctuate throughout my life and I will not feel bad for having more sex or less sex than is usual for myself, or whatever amount society wants to deem is correct. In my sexual interactions, I will always strive to be honest, open, and fulfill my desires as well as my partners, regardless of if they last for many years or just a few minutes. I will not lie or feel shame about my desire to have sex with many people. I will express my sexuality in whatever way I feel fit for me at that point in time, whether it be femme, butch  or any of the rainbow of other shades. I accept that this is influenced by many things, including the patriarchy we live in, but not solely. I will use my voice and my actions to disrupt pre and misconceptions of that sexuality.  I will not fall into the duality of madonna or whore. I am a whole person with many facets. As a sexual being, many of those facets have to do with my sexuality, but it is not the only way I will be valued. 


Thanks for letting me share. Stay tuned here for more awesome bike-sexuality, but remember we want everyone's voices to be heard, so please contribute and help us spread the joys of human-powered transportation and sex positive culture.

May 15th SPRUNG: Mutations

Queer has been redefined many times. It may be used as an adjective or a verb. Just like the word, we may redefine our gender and transform our bodies. Like our bodies, we can mutate our bicycles, creating new ways to explore our surroundings.



So what about queering transportation?

In the US, people who ride bikes are already considered weird (outside Portland at least). And looking at a subculture for sexual pleasure makes perfect sense if you are in the culture, looks to outsiders as totally bizarre.

Imagine a bar, lots of sorts of people enjoying adult beverages. How would a motorist who has been trying to pick up on a cute biker react when suddenly the biker takes interest in someone else.
"That person looks sweaty and dirty" the motorist might say, trying to dissuade.
"Yea! Sure does!!"

... and with that the cute biker has moved on and the motorist is left wondering what planet this is. Everything is wrong. The motorist has better style, more grace, expensive hair product… everything we are told will attract a mate… everything but the simple practicality of convent independence that come with working your own ride. It seems perfectly normal to those of us who live it, but to the rest of the world we are freaks!

Moreover mutant bikes are a queering of normal bike transportation.  These freak-bikes are just that, for the purpose of being that. No other term applied, because what do you call something that belongs to multiple classes at the same time? You look at it and are stumped. Imagine the first biologists who came upon a duck-billed platypus? Imagine the well seasoned commuter who can do nothing but gawk upon seeing a tall bike for the first time.



Moreover as we become more comfortable with these expanding definitions we might feel we are capable of categorizing them and defining them only to find that someone/something else escapes our world view of sex or bikes. A tall-tandem-swing-burrito bike might not exist, but for how long? If you think you are "queer enough" then how will you react to someone pushing your limits further?


Normalization of this other-worldly culture is a concern for many who feel they have been able to contribute to a culture, and feel proud of being something exclusive. When biking is already seen as an "other" our options seem so limited. Either we put on a yellow jacket and follow every traffic law we can imagine in order to fit in, or we choose to stand out (and there is no telling what laws you might choose to follow)

This might be particularly obvious when in the company of others to whom we consider "normal". Either we draw attention to our differences or might try and avoid shame by distancing ourselves from similar outsiders that bike:
  • "I ride almost every day and I would never get on... that."
  • "I may ride my bike in traffic but im not that crazy to get on a tall bike."
  • "I may enjoy sucking cock but i certainly wouldn't suck my own!"
This Tuesday we present one of the best made and most appealing FTM hardcore pornos you will ever see! You can be a straight male and imagine that Billy Castro's dick is your phallus, or a straight female and dream he is working your cunt... or you can be gay and know that a person born with female sex organs is able to fuck those girls as well as any man... or you can be politico-queer and know that the gender we choose is more important than how we are born, and everyone can enjoy that all these different people can apprecaite something together in public that would never have happened just 10 years ago.

You won't have to suck cock, not even your own, but if you can, kudos! (talk to us later)

Main Feature: Billy Castro Does the Mission (2010) 
Director: Courtney Trouble


Courtney Trouble is one of the Bay Areas first and finest queer porn icons. She started her online porn site, NoFauxxx.com in 2002 and has been exploring porn beyond gender binaries ever since. She has been awarded 4 Feminist Porn Awards and has been nominated for 3 AVN awards, known as ‘The Oscars of Porn’. Billy Casto, one of the worlds hottest FTM porn stars, was cast to star as part of Courtney Trouble’s ‘Muse’ Collection. ‘Billy Castro does the Mission’ is pretty ‘self-sexplanitory’. Billy Castro is in San Francisco’s Mission District after his bike is stolen. From there he ends up on 4 separate sexcapades in one day trying to recover his lost love.



Bike Smut loves Courtney Trouble and thinks she has done great things for porn. We love that a bike is the catalyst for Billy’s fuck fest. We also wanted to show one of her past films because Bike Smut 6 will feature two brand new, totally bikesexual creations by her.

YEA FOR FUN, BRILLIANT WOMEN MAKING BETTER PORN FOR ALL!





PLUS: 
Live Performance by Fatha Green:  Singer, dancer, and comedian Fatha Green represents the consummate live performance artist. But be careful you dont fall for him, just because he looks like he is making love to the audience doesn't mean he will consummate with you that easily!
A Bike Pornographers Almanac: "Times they are A-Chainring" edition
Topical selections from past Bike Smut programs:  Freak Bike Fall (2010), Das Randy Radfahrers (2011) Exerts from our other favorite queer porn director Luke Woodward's - Tour de Pants (2010)

Sprung! again: May 8th - Power


Tomorrow (May 8th) will be our second installment of Sprung!

The theme is Power

Here is what we have to say about that:

It affects every relationship, whether it is with close friends or authorities. It can be used for or against you, for good or evil. We strive to maintain control of it in our own lives, and the ability to  choose when to give it up. Power is also inherent in how we harness energy. Being able to act on ones desires of what we ride and who we ride.

So considering the power that the 'church' (catholic or otherwise, but the catholics have a long reputation of shoving their beliefs down your pants) yields over our body, especially women's sexuality.. We thought we would show the wonderfully light-hearted Monella by Tinto Brass

It's a charming little tale about a young couple in 1950s Italy. They are engaged, but Lola has had enough of saving herself for marriage (she is HORNY!) plus, she wants to make sure her man can satisfy before they take the plunge!

Full of pervy priest, double standards and daddy issues, it plays with a plethora of power dynamics. Tinto Brass, known as 'The King of European Erotica' worked in avant-garde film up until the mid 70s when he made the leap to erotica. His erotic films are still full of experimental techniques and lots of ass shots. (He was a notorious ass man). This, however, might have been what inspired him to make one of the sexiest bicycle scenes in cinema history. If you want to see it, you will have to stop by!
