Bored? Lonely? Check out this show tonight:
Sex Workers Art Show
Strippin’ ain’t easy, ya’ll. Just remember that next time you find yourself in the back room of P.T.’s with a stash of cash. Some call it exotic dancing, some call it a way to make a living. Sadly, the industry is often stigmatized with labels like “whore,” “unintelligent” and “perverse.” The touring Sex Workers Art Show is trailblazing across this great nation to prove those generalizations wrong. You can call them dirty, but please don’t call them uncreative. The cabaret-style show features a mishmash of spoken word, music, drag and burlesque from people working in all areas of the sex industry — and that includes strippers, prostitutes, dommes, porn stars, phone sex operators and Internet models. What? Names? OK — how about burlesquer Miss Dirty Martini, feminist author Chris Kraus (“I Love Dick”), porn star Lorelei Lee and dominatrix Keva I. Lee. Tour founder and director Annie Oakley leads the three(cock)-ring circus, so be ready for anything. Oh, and it’s best to check your inhibitions at the door.
