For a trip through erotica's past, head to Amnesia on Sunday night where Dr. Carol Queen, Ph.D will host Blue Movie night, sharing clips from the 1920s through the 1960s from the Oddball Films archive. If you've always been curious about BDSM, check out Erin Palmquist's documentary BDSM: It's Not What You Think! at the Center for Sex and Culture on Tuesday at 7:30p. Wednesday evening brings a screening of the 1974 classic The Devil In Miss Jones at the Lumiere Theater followed by a Q&A with the film's star, Georgina Spelvin.
