Restored Cult Classic!
PREACHING TO THE PERVERTED
We’ll be presenting the restored, remastered version of the kinky classic–winner of the VERY first CineKink Audience Choice Award in 2003…at the VERY first CineKink!

In this sexy, British romp a young infiltrator is dispatched by moral crusaders in Parliament to gather evidence against fetish clubs in the United Kingdom, where many of the saucier activities are illegal. But thrust into a shiny world of latex and parties, he instead becomes infatuated with Tanya Cheex, a sex goddess from New York and leader of the fetish scene on both sides of the Atlantic. He wants her to calm down, become “normal” and avoid going to jail. She wants to pervert him. Who will win? (Directed by Stuart Urban, 1997, UK, 100 minutes. Starring Christien Anholt and Guinevere Turner.)

34791 10150097277521019 693826018 7282196 5374890 n Lesbian Sex Mafia presents Unscheduled Maintenance: Keeping your SM Relationship Purring with Laura Antoniou and Kim Attica (Annual All Genders workshop)Kim Attica and Laura Antoniou – ten years in a DS relationship as of 2013 – will discuss tried and true methods of keeping all participants in an SM relationship feeling nourished and cherished, how to handle slight upsets and occasional crises with humor and caring; and how to keep an eye on what makes the relationship special and worthy. While some of the content here may be thought of as “little things mean a lot,” the presenters will show how so many of the so-called “little things” are as vital to the happy functioning of a relationship as oil changes are to maintaining your car. Bring your experiences with what makes your relationship tick, or what made it break down, and we’ll share insights into the good, the bad and the sadly mistaken.

When: Friday, November 15, 2013; 8:00-10:00PM
