>CineKink kicks off our annual national tour in Las Vegas, May 13-15, 2010!
Starting with a gala benefit and including several days of screenings, Cinekink: Las Vegas will offer a specially-curated program of films and videos that celebrate and explore a wide and exciting world of sexual diversity, with works ranging from documentary to drama, comedy to experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit – and everything in between.
The festivities begin Thursday, May 13th, at 8:30 PM, with a wine and chocolate gala benefit at the Erotic Heritage Museum, to include an erotic rope bondage demonstration by Reverse Tensionz, a performance by the renowned Dr. Carol Queen from her work “Peep Show,” and a live rendition of the CineKink award-winning music video, “ The Pinky Song,” by singer/comedian Alicyn Packard. The event will also feature film shorts and clips highlighting the festival, and by noted photographer JM Darling, along with other fun surprises and a kinky raffle!
All proceeds from the gala will benefit the Erotic Heritage Museum and CineKink … with special thanks to MakeLoveNotPorn and Tied Up Events for making this spectacular evening possible!
The festival then moves to the Onyx Theatre for Friday, May 14 through Saturday, May 15, with several different film and video programs scheduled for each day.
Among the headliners, first up on Friday, May 14 at 3:00 PM, features “boylesque” sensation Waxie Moon taking the world of neo-burlesque by storm in a hilarious and thought-provoking portrait of one artist’s unlikely journey.
At 5:00 PM, a special industry showcase, BRING IT!, features a dazzling array of talent from today’s adult cinema, each representing a wide range of genres and visual styles, all stepping up with a hot sampling of their recent creative endeavors.
And at 6:45 PM, the documentary MY SEXUALITY: A SENSORY EXPERIENCE, shines light on five ordinary women from different backgrounds, sexual preferences and past experiences as they experiment with five deliciously different activities intended to boost both sense of self and sexuality. This screening is immediately followed by a panel discussion featuring the film’s director, Felicia Giouzelis, UNLV’s Dr. Lynn Comella, Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen and others.
Beginning at 1:00 PM it’s YES, MISTRESS, the film shorts program that asks (and sometimes answers!) the question: “How may I be of service?”
At 3:00 PM, SWINGERS has first-timers Diana and Julian inviting a couple they’ve met online to join them for an adventurous weekend in the country.
At 5:00 PM, S&M JUDGE ia a compelling drama in which a respected judge finds his job, reputation and family life in jeopardy after he and his wife begin to explore sadomasochism.
And, closing out the festival’s regular screening schedule at 7:00 PM, BEST OF CINEKINK features select, award-winning shorts deemed the year’s best during the festival’s latest run at CINEKINK NYC.
Following the final screening, the action heads back to the Erotic Heritage Museum for a closing party that will go until the clock strikes midnight.
