Here's a phrase that isn't typically associated with a successful erotic endeavor: “seven minutes or less.” But that's how long the filmmakers in the Quickies Short Erotic Film Competition have to impress the crowd. The competition is produced by the city's favorite sex store, Good Vibrations, and strives to be inclusive. Quickies welcomes films that are “funny, serious, explicit, romantic, straight, queer, kinky, and more.” This year's finalists have a comedic and fantastical tint, with tales of sexy furniture assembly in I Fucking Love IKEA, futurist three-ways in Biodildo and historical fantasy in After Midnight Bedtime Stories. The competition is judged by the audience, and hosted by a panel of “saucy queens” that includes Good Vibrations' staff sexologist Dr. Carol Queen and local drag stars D'arcy Drollinger, Trixxie Carr, and Hugz Bunny. Come early for the pre-party (tickets sold separately) with sex toy giveaways, live music by the Undulations, and a performance from Red Hots Burlesque.
