We were excited last week to see a big sexy pair of boobies on the cover of the SF Weekly -- and we were tingly all over to see that they were inviting us in to read about the San Francisco debut of New York's flagship grrrl-powered sexy party, Cake. But then we got really confused, as all the words like "objectify" and "male gaze" made us dizzy -- until we decided to make a drinking game out of it, of course.
What really made us confused is that we didn't learn anything about the party (was it fun?), but instead got a seven-page lecture on how porn is bad for women and how the women who go to these parties really can't be having fun because they don't know what life is like for real sex workers. Huh? We know a few local, fun-lovin' sex workers who had a blast at the party -- we guess the problem is that they mask their pain from the objectification of the male gaze with all that fun, so it's hard to tell.
Anyway, we thought we'd ask Emily Kramer from Cake (and co-author of the hands-on female sex empowerment book A Piece of Cake: Recipes for Female Sexual Pleasure, and the Cake blog) what we should do about Weekly writer Eliza Strickland's issues, and what the Cake party was really like.
SFist: Do you want me to spank Eliza Strickland with a copy of A Piece of Cake: Recipes for Female Sexual Pleasure? I'll *bring* it!
Emily Kramer: Ha! I think Midori should give Eliza a spanking for not including her performance in the piece. By the end of the night the Hot Stuff guests were gathered around a stage, on which Midori expertly presented a light kink show. In fiery latex, she used fetish, ropes, and toys in a display of female dominance that surely inspired fantasies for all.
