So May is "Masturbation Month" which means business as usual for most of our fine readers (and writers), but for those of you who truly want to celebrate, here are a few dates to mark on your calendars:

Saturday, May 3, 7–10pm - Opening reception for "I Touch Myself," a collection of erotic photos, steamy paintings and illustration at Femina Potens. Details here.

Thursday, May 8, 6:30pm - Ask The Doctors - Dr. Carol Queen and Dr. Robert Lawrence discuss the ins and outs of masturbation. Details here.

Sunday, May 25, 3pm - The 7th Annual Masturbate-A-Thon - Make some money for the Center For Sex & Culture by pledging your support for your favorite wanker. OR, sign up to masturbate on camera for the cause. Details here.

Anytime of the month - Post a Twittergasm and shame all your prudish friends.

Weekly Clubs Editor John Graham is surprised that Kleenex, Jergens, Johnson & Johnson, and/or any number of lubricant or shower massage-nozzle companies haven't seized the obvious marketing opportunities. Maybe they'll wise up while the month is young? That'll be the day. But then again this is San Francisco. --Janine Kahn

  • 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.'"
