ZOMLOG, this is so exciting! The Godless Perverts Story has received a donation of three — count ’em, three — blasphemous sex toys, to be given away as door prizes at our April 13 San Francisco event! (Event details below.) The toys come from Divine Interventions, fine manufacturers of high-quality silicone sex toys both secular and sacreligious. The company has given us:
a Jackhammer Jesus dildo;
a Baby Jesus Buttplug;
and a Bible Thumper. (The notch in the Bible Thumper fits a standard bullet vibrator,
which is not included CORRECTION: The Bible Thumpers sold on the Divine Interventions website are sold separately from the vibrators, but the company has provided us with a vibrator to go with the one we’re giving away.) Each toy will come with its own small bottle of Holy Water Lube. We’ll be giving them away as door prizes at the San Francisco event.
If we weren’t going to hell before this, we sure are now.
Co-hosted by David Fitzgerald, Chris Hall, and me, the Godless Perverts Story Hour is an evening about how to have good sex without having any gods, goddesses, spirits, or their earthly representatives hanging over your shoulder and telling you that you’re doing it wrong. We’ll be bringing you depictions, explorations, and celebrations of godless sexualities, as well as critical, mocking, and blasphemous views of sex and religion. The evening’s entertainment will have a range of voices — sexy and serious, passionate and funny, and all of the above — talking about how our sexualities can not only exist, but even thrive, without the supernatural. The Godless Perverts Story Hour has a performance event scheduled in San Francisco on April 13. We have a munch/ social gathering on April 17, at Wicked Grounds, San Francisco’s famous kink-themed coffee house. And for the first time, we’re taking the show on the road, and are doing a Godless Perverts Story Hour event at the free ReasonFest conference in Kansas, on April 21. Mark your calendars now!
On Saturday, April 13, 7pm: Take a break from filing your taxes to join us again at the Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission St, San Francisco, CA (near Civic Center BART) for another Godless Perverts Story Hour. The last one was a great success, and we’ve got some new names performing, as well as some favorites from our first event. Maggie Mayhem, alas, has had to drop out of this event — but we still have an awesome lineup of readers and performers, including Greta Christina, David Fitzgerald, Chris Hall, Heina, Victor Harris, Liberty N. Justice, Anthony O’Con, and Kate Sirls. Plus, at this event only, blasphemous sex toys to be given away as door prizes!
On Tuesday, April 16, 7pm: Okay, so the tax thing is over and you can start to relax a bit. Join us for coffee and conversation at the Godless Perverts Munch. For those not familiar with the term, a “munch” is a term developed by BDSM communities for an informal get-together of people at a restaurant or café. We’ll be gathering at Wicked Grounds, San Francisco’s famous kink-themed coffee house. Godless Perverts isn’t just about holding readings; a big part of it is building community so that people can talk openly about sexuality and atheism. This is the first time that we’ve held a munch, and if it goes off well, we hope to have lots more.
Reasonfest; Lawrence, KA:
And on Sunday, April 21, 6pm: For the first time, we’re going to be venturing out of the Bay Area. The folks at Reasonfest have agreed to have us host a Godless Perverts Story Hour at the conference, so if you’re attending, please join us. And if you’re not attending — now you have extra incentive! In addition to GPSH co-founders and co-hosts Greta Christina and David Fitzgerald, Amanda Brown, Bridget Gaudette, and Keith Lowell Jensen are going to share their insights on religion, godlessness, and fucking. There’s no admission price — Reasonfest is a completely free conference, happening April 20-21, and we’re winding up the event on Sunday evening — so if you’re in the area, or have any way of getting there, be sure to check it out.
So mark your calendars now! You don’t want to miss this. And if you want to stay in the loop about these and other Godless Perverts events, follow us on Twitter at @GodlessPerverts, or sign up for our email newsletter. Hope to see you soon!
