Center for Sex & Culture, San Francisco, California

Doing a performance at the new space of the CENTER FOR SEX AND CULTURE is like going home. It is fully accessible on every level, warm, beautiful, sexy. Carol and Robert make it that way!
The performance for me was like eating an artichoke, peeling off layers, scratching off the meat off the leaves, waiting to get to the heart of the artichoke. For the first half of the night I was swimming up stream, revealing blow hards, discovering the truly adventurous spirits, etc. But things were not really clicking in. This was even true when there were a lot of people who had come to other performances of mine going back to the seventies. But I was searching for the release and wasn’t finding it! Then everything just sank to a much deeper level with the ritual of GESTURES getting juicy, fun, explicit. Sometimes you just have to keep swinging until the bat decides to connect with the ball!
At the end of the night Sandra the intern who had helped us all night felt to me like she wanted to be inside the performance ritual. So I dragged into service something that we used to do in my seventies workshop. This drew everybody left into a tribal body! About fucking time!
Actually this snapshot says it all about our latest performance!
terrin conto: Wonder how the males who take part in Frank's shows manage not to get an erection, things look like they get pretty hot.
Frank Moore: Well... Because in the context of the performance having a hard-on is neither a forbidden taboo nor a goal, it rarely mmmmmm comes up.

I am loving the tensions in this performance here, especially the chubby chick with that one dude (who was not afraid to show off his boner at all, and you can’t blame him), and Nat with that dude grinding on top of her. I would love to be Apart of performances like this one day.
