Real, Hot 

Wednesday, Jan 25 2012
Valentine's Day is about love. Porn is about sex. Which is to say, porn -- or erotica, smut, however you want to name it -- is not about love. Or is it? About a decade ago, San Francisco photographer David Steinberg wanted to capture genuine connection between people having sex. So the longtime alt-sex author and columnist sought couples with established relationships who'd let him observe and photograph. The result is a moving series called Loving Couples -- stunning photography that involves intense (and explicit) sex, but also eye contact, passion, joy, and connection. Steinberg has since shot sexual photographs of people with disabilities (which he called the SexAbility series) as well as San Francisco transgender women and people in intimate BDSM settings. Some of Steinberg's work is included in "On the Edge 2." The three-day exhibit includes 400 shots from 25 photographers. Other local photographers include Michael Rosen, Peter Keresztury (who is also the show's curator and producer), Relishguy, and Craig Scoffone.

  • 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.'"
