"I've read about it, but I have no idea whether it's possible."

"I've seen it a couple of times in movies, but I can't tell if it's faked."

"A friend of mine once said that she does it, but how can I know whether it's true?"

What is it? There's no polite or euphemistic way of saying it, really, so we won't even try: female ejaculation. And yes, it happens. Some women, when they reach orgasm, do ejaculate. Not all women, not all the time, but yes, some do, sometimes. And, according to Carol Queen, staff sexologist at Good Vibrations, nearly any woman can if she wants to. If it's anyone in the world we'd expect to know all about this - and to make a video on the subject - it's Queen and Good Vibes.

In fact, sex-toy retailer Good Vibes and its video production arm Good Releasing is going all out on this one. Thursday night at the Roxie is the premiere of the video, Gush: The Official Guide to the G-Spot and Female Ejaculation. Queen will be on hand, as will some of the cast members from the video.

Carol Queen also co-founded San Francisco's Center for Sex and Culture.

The movie itself is pretty creative in its setup, covering education as well as demonstration. Its premise is a radio show, where Queen answers questions from curious callers. As people phone in asking various things about female pleasure, the much-talked-about "Graftenberg Spot," and female ejaculation, Queen provides answers that include detailed explanation. And in case that's not clear enough, between the calls are various narrative scenarios of people (explicitly) acting out just how it's done.

The performers in Gush include "professionals" as well as real-life couples, so it's not like any adult movie you've seen - unless you've seen other films produced in San Francisco by the likes of Queen and Good Vibes.

The premiere of Gush: The Official Guide to the G-Spot and Female Ejaculation starts at 7 p.m. at the Roxie Theater, 3117 16th St. in San Francisco. Admission is $10. When the movie ends, there's an after-party at the nearby Good Vibrations at 603 Valencia. Admission is free.

  • 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.'"
