The Examiner brings us this not-so-pleasurable story this morning about a disturbing uptick in public masturbation -- and we're not referring to your Muni ride last night.

Just last week in Half Moon Bay, sheriff's deputies were called to a

report of a man who allegedly had been pleasuring himself while peering

into a bedroom window of home on Amesport Landing at about 5:30 a.m. According to the Ex, the homeowner chased after the masturbating man, but lost sight of him. San Mateo County deputies later spotted the suspect and arrested him after another


Gilberto Flores, 33, was booked on charges of indecent exposure, peeping, and resisting arrest, deputies said.

But wait, there's more!

Something equally creepy and disgusting happened in Fremont late last month. A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of jerking off while staring at a 15-year-old girl through her bedroom window.

And two weeks ago in San Francisco, a man was caught exposing more than his environmental views. Police said a man who was passing out fliers about electronic recycling was also seen masturbating in public that same day. 

A witness said she saw the man in the early afternoon servicing himself on the steps of her house in the 200 block of Moncada Way, just east of Junipero Serra Boulevard.

"The man admitted doing this," police told the Examiner.

And then on May 7, San Francisco police busted another man who was seen exposing himself and defecating near a preschool in the 200 block of Eucalyptus Avenue.

"The officer located the man, who told him that he was drunk and couldn't 'hold it,'" police said.

What a shitty thing to do.

  • 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.'"
