You’ve never been, not once? Well, it’s time: Check out the topless entertainment, risqué burlesque dancers and VIP Champagne lounges. And it’s returning so it must be worthwhile. Plus it’s at the legendary Condor Club. Text “CONDOR” to 35350 for your free admission.
As we head into the end of May and the beginning of summer, keep these (mostly) local events on your radar should you feel the need to turn up the heat.

Just think: Sex with someone you love, and for a great cause.
2. Ask the Doctors: Masturbation
So, I went right to the source, the Mitchell Brothers O’Farrell Theatre—the legendary club in San Francisco—to take “dance” lessons from its strippers.
Talented strippers Jasmine and Jersey (pictured here) took me under their wing.
How it works: A maximum of 25 men and 25 women (in your age range) show up at the party, which is held at different restaurants and bars around town. The night warms up with a half hour of drinking and mingling. This also happens to be a good time to size up your competition and potential matches, if you’re so inclined.
Women are then placed at separate tables, where they stay put as the men circle around and sit with them, one at a time, through the evening.
Thankfully, tonight there’s still a lot to do, but in true San Francisco form, many of you have already been dressing up for a week now.
Last Saturday, I ventured to the Exotic Erotic Ball for the first time ever. I’d heard about it, and have always been a tad curious, so this year we showed up with a crew to film the night’s festivities.

But now many locals are up in arms.
It appears that San Franciscans are super comfy in their “this is the worst town to date in” skin. Feel free to complain. I never judge. But if you’re in the mood to stop talking about your so-called dry spell and jumpstart your sex life, read on.
