"The Cover Up": Nudist Porn Shoots in the Naked City

To the potential chagrin of San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener, some creative and talented pornographers are giving our fair city's ouspoken nudists some more time in the spotlight.

San Francisco studio NakedSword has plans to create a gay porn parody of the city's nudity ban. The hero? One "Supervisor Scott Cox."

The camera crews were out and about on a recent Sunday filming scenes from The Cover Up, featuring an on-location nudity ban protest with none other than notorious naked activist Gypsy Taub. And yes, they did have a permit to film.

"I was really frustrated by the way the [nudity ban] played out," co-writer Conner Habib told the Huffington Post. "The whole thing was pretty ridiculous."

Habib, a writer and porn actor, says he wrote the film with fellow writers and actors Leo Forte and Zachary Sire. On Sunday, the crew shot the most provocative scenes in secret locations. But they did film the public nudity protest scene right there in the Castro, a feat of cinematic verisimilitude.

"The actors and extras were holding these 'Re-elect Supervisor Scott Cox' signs and people were very confused," Habib said. "Everyone kept saying, 'I thought his name was Scott Wiener.'"

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
