Since the beginning of the year the SEX+++ Film Series has been drawing audiences to the Southside to explore their sexuality.

SEX POSITIVE, pro-SEX, pro-QUEER, pro-KINK is what this film documentary series is all about, curated by Clarisse Thorn, each screening will focus on the positive, informative spin of human sexuality.  Screenings will cover everything from bisexuality, swinging, heterosexuality, polyamory and more.

This Tuesday you can catch a screening of "Filming Desire" (2000) - Female directors talk about the reality of an explicit women's point of view, the desire in their films to "fantasize and dream a new image of themselves", and how their depictions of sexuality and relationships are correctives.  Aspasia Bonaser a blogger at La Libertine's Salon will be the guest facilitator.

Continuing through October you can catch other films like:

- AUGUST 11: "Liberty In Restraint" (2005)
