Bike Smut Intelligentsia

Below learn about our final two screenings in Mexico City: 
 Bike Smut Intelligentsia


Bike Smut has always been for the people. Not just the people it serves directly (ie, our audience) but the people that will never know of its existence. We would like to believe that there is some massive Butterfly Effect that filters out of each show, causing the participants to engage with their mobile-sexuality a little differently. The ideals of Joyful Exploration, Shameless Flirtation and Radical Honesty help us find and embrace our desires. Witnessing someone make themselves vulnerable by sharing their fantasies emboldens others and puritanical shame is diminished. We all benefit from this scenario. But while we are very proud of our methods many choose other ways to engage these topics.



Recently a festival was going to invite Bike Smut or a person who has made a culture of encouraging people to photograph bikers without their consent (technically legal in the USA but still sketchy).

We are not one to Yuck another person's Yum but we wish there was a better way. For sure, its not easy. Besides the obvious challenge of racing after a person on a bicycle, just imagining how one might obtain feedback from strangers is difficult enough. "I just took your picture, can I use it in this context" strangely seems even more invasive then just snapping the photo and running. But why? Perhaps because we have trained ourselves to exist in a culture that spends more time begging for forgiveness than asking permission.

Thankfully we don't have to suffer in contemplation the ethics of others. We simply have to live our truth and hope that others are similarly inspired. But we do enjoy the mental exercise so we invite you to take part in a rarely seen side of ours,  Bike Smut's intellectual explorations of bikes and sex.

First this weekend is the North American Anarchist Studies Network (nassn.org). Basically political wonks gathering for what we presume is an opportunity to stoke their own red and black gears. Although our voices might often be drowned out by the capitalist machine when we gather, when we organize our ideas have wheels of their own.

A bunch of intellectuals sharing theories on various political systems may not sound exciting but then you might have gotten accustomed to the yoke of capitalism. If you spend more time wondering how to maximize your net worth than you do dancing I hope you are able to join us for a rousting examination of what bodies will do with given the freedom to move and fuck as they please without concern for compensation.

ENGRISH!
We are so stoked to be back in Mexico. The culture, food, people are all so welcoming. And our friends at Casa Bicitekas are making it happen! With the world's largest gathering of bicycle nerds happening in Mexico we were dubious we would get an invitation. We like to wonk hard, but for some reason many people in the US don't like to get transportation advice from porn stars. It seems our neighbors to the south are more reasonable with their politics. As the imitable Courtney Trouble said, "let your porn inform your politics and your politics inform your porn." (more or less, I hope I didn't fuck up that quote)

So we are fortunate to present not only the world's only collection of futuristic, sci-fi themed, bicycle pornography but also host a workshop deconstructing bike porn as well! Both happen Friday at Casa Bicitecas!

¡El Final Feliz Comenza - Ciencia Fricción en Mexico!

en español mas tarde (mas of menos... problemente menos)

Bike Smut returns to Mexico! In all the world there is only one homegrown film and performance festival displaying the joy and libeartion of human-powered mobility and sex-positive culture. Although we have moved into a comfortable retirement from touring there were 4 movies made in Mexico in our most recent program so we couldn't keep Science Friction from our Southern neighbor for long.



We have officially been invited to present our glorious bikesexual films at the 6th annual World Bicycle Forum aka la Foro de Mudial de la bicicletta. Some have called it the biggest bike party on earth, and we are happy to be here. Thankfully we are a pretty good judge of bike parties. Our friends the Dead Baby Bicycle Club of Seattle whom have been hosting a massive party every first Friday of August for the past 21 years might argue they have been doing it longer and better.

Bicycle dance performances by the Sprockettes at The Dead Baby Downhill
Never any shortage of bikes, beer or fire
Well what they lack in fire and freaks we hope they will make up for with radical collaboration and ideas from across the planet. We are sure the #FMB6 is gonna have more wonks but will it have more wanks? Only time will tell but we are excited to rub thighs with some of the world's finest thinkers.
