Madison Young Premieres ‘Reveal All Fear Nothing’ at SF Armory

From AVN:

Performance artist, author and director Madison Young, known for her feminist take on hardcore erotica, offers an alternative to the usual Valentine’s Day fare with the world premiere of her new theater piece, Reveal All Fear Nothing: A Journey in Sex, Love, Porn and Feminism. Directed by Sophia La Paglia, the performance will take place February 12-14 at the San Francisco Armory. Inside the Armory, which is home to Kink.com, a theater has been constructed in the building’s Roman Bath set. The pop-up theater will seat 100 audience members each evening.

Reveal All Fear Nothing is a multimedia performance and experimental theater piece, written and performed by Madison Young and developed in collaboration with feminist artist Annie Sprinkle. The piece—a modern adaptation of Sprinkle’s theater piece Post Porn Modernist—and aims to crack wide open the underground worlds of BDSM, pornography and kink, all while demystifying and celebrating these often misunderstood and misrepresented communities and movements.

Throwback Thursday: Kink.com’s Executive Team Checks Out 2008 AVN Expo

From Jan 18, 2008:

Every January, the adult entertainment industry comes together in Las Vegas for a week of flesh, fun and franchise at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo. The enormous conference draws thousands of adult companies, models, and fans to network, check out new products, participate in discussion panels and even attend an industry-wide awards show. The last 2 years, Kink.com has blown everyone away with their booth and demonstrations, solidifying their reputation as the world’s leading producer of BDSM and Fetish content. But this year, Kink.com chose to attend AVN not as prominent exhibitor, but as a quiet observer. So Founder and CEO, Peter Acworth, told his Directors to stay home for a change, and instead gathered his team of executives and headed to Las Vegas to check out the conference from an entirely different point of view.
