Locals and tourists alike have seen many of the bigwig landmarks San Francisco boasts, like crooked Lombard Street and that big orange thing that leads to Marin. But there is one S.F. gem that, ironically, hasn't received a ton of buzz -- the Antique Vibrator Museum.

The Antique Vibrator Museum is part of Good Vibrations' Polk Street sex toy store, and displays the world's largest known collection of antique vibrators, from as early as the 1800s. Dr. Carol Queen, museum curator and head sexologist at Good Vibes, gave us the lowdown on the museum's vast array of vintage vibes.

  • 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.'"
