SAN FRANCISCO – (April 13th, 2009): Good Vibrations (www.goodvibes.com), the legendary San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing accurate information on sexuality and toys for grown-ups, is proud to announce IXFF: The Second Coming Tour, a national road show of the Independent Erotic Film Festival’s best shorts.
Debuting in 2006 as the Good Vibrations Amateur Erotic Film Competition at San Francisco’s historic Castro Theatre, the competition became a full fledged Film Festival in 2008 with national and international shorts rounding out the winning entries.
This Spring, Good Vibrations is selecting the very best of past entries from its Independent Erotic Film Festival (IXFF) and taking it on the road as The Second Coming Tour. Indie filmmakers share their interpretation of erotic with sexy shorts (ten minutes or less) ranging from smutty to arty and comedic to serious.
Each night of erotic cinema begins with a brief History of Porn by Good Vibrations Staff Sexologist and Chief Cultural Officer, Dr. Carol Queen, PhD. An entertaining sex educator, author and activist, Dr. Queen will provide an educational, historic, and cultural examination of an era gone by, illuminating its inception and development.
