Kinky Artists Plan Sunday Fundraiser for Japanese Disaster Relief

Several Bay Area artists who deal in erotic and kinky themes plan to hold a fundraiser Sunday called Shibari Relief aimed at helping victims of the recent disaster in Japan, according to Mark I. Chester.

Chester, a self-described gay radical sex photographer, is organizing the benefit with Patti Beadles, who is also a photographer. Chester says there will be a silent auction, sale, and raffle of art depicting BDSM and sexual content. Other items offered might include books, Chester says, as well as gift certificates that can be redeemed for photo sessions with certain artists.
