❤ Kinky sex has been one of Race Bannon’s passions as a practitioner, organizer, writer, educator, commentator, activist and leader since his first explorations of the leather world starting in 1973. Race’s accomplishments include co-founder of the Kink Aware Professionals referral service; leader of The DSM Project that began to change how psychotherapy professionals view kink; author of the bestselling Learning The Ropes: A Basic Guide to Safe and Fun BDSM Lovemaking; founder of Daedalus Publishing Company, the first company dedicated to publishing nonfiction leather/SM/fetish books; prolific writer; former sex advice columnist; former producer and host of the first kink internet talk show Bound To Talk; past Board member of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, Community-Academic Consortium for Research on Alternative Sexualities, NLA International and Avatar Club Los Angeles; co-founder of NLA Los Angeles; and member of Chicago Hellfire Club, The 15 Association, and Society of Janus. Race is currently on the Board of the Leather Hall of Fame. Recently Race was inducted into the Society of Janus Hall of Fame. He is featured in the documentaries Vice and Consent, Out of the Darkness: The Reality of S&M and Folsom Forever, was a BDSM consultant for the movie Exit to Eden, and is currently an Executive Producer for Divine Deviance, an upcoming documentary about the global kink/BDSM/fetish scene. Race is also a popular speaker who has delivered the keynote address for a number of events.

❤ Straddling the line between sentimental and sleazy, Jefferson Bergey blends gritty, soulful pop with elements of folk, blues, and country with a penchant for the ridiculous in his original compositions.
The Oakland based singer-songwriter performs his family-unfriendly music all over the Bay Area. He’s a frequent contributor, writing custom songs for the award-winning, San Francisco based, Bawdy Storytelling. As a solo acoustic act, Bergey’s sound is akin to folky musical theater in a coffee shop…if the coffee shop also sold sex toys and sativa gummy bears. His polite vulgarity may not be for the very young and impressionable or the very old and conservative but he won’t tell you how to raise your kids or upset your grandparents.
He can be seen and heckled every Monday night at his Risqué residency at Scopo Divino in San Francisco. For well over two years straight, he’s put on a unique and interactive show where he plays original music and cover songs suggested by those in attendance who haven’t already left in disgust.
Bergey’s music can be heard on the RISK! and Bawdy Storytelling podcasts. He has performed at The Independent, Sweetwater, Great American Music Hall, Jewish Community Center in SF, John Steinbeck Association, Special Olympics in Long Beach, Punchline SF, and SF Sketchfest.
His newest EP titled ‘Always Up (To Go Down)’ was originally written for Bawdy Storytelling and is flanked by a few of his ‘inter-lewds’, now fleshed out with piano, bass, and pedal steel. It also features the talents of Natalie Smith (Cape Weather) on vocals.
