"Graphic Sexual Horror" takes a peek behind the facade of Insex.com, a notorious bondage website, exploring the mind of its artistic creator and asking hard questions about personal responsibility. Original Insex footage, behind-the-scenes interactions, and interviews with website creator PD, models, members, and staff reveal deep fascinations with bondage and sadomasochism that run parallel, and in fact become irreversibly entwined with the lure of money.

InSex was shut down by federal prosecutors, but its story asks questions that are still relevant. Can paying a BDSM partner distort his or her consent? Why were prosecutors so easily able to force a legal business to fold? Come out, watch the documentary, and talk about it afterwards! Director Barbara Bell will be present for the discussion, which will be moderated by pro-BDSM activist Clarisse Thorn.

This is a benefit for the Leather Archives & Museum, and we're requesting a $5-10 donation from attendees -- please help preserve the history of alternative sexuality!

Thanks to our documentary film series sponsor, Sex+++ at Jane Addams Hull-House Museum -- a free documentary film series for people who like sex!

As an older art collector since my wife passed away, I must admit to being very partial to collecting nudes in art, as original paintings or as good prints, that I have displayed all over the house. (I like to see the surprised faces of my new visitors).
This one,
