SAN FRANCISCO—On Saturday, February 2, from 3-8pm, the Center for Sex & Culture (CSC) is delighted to present its annual benefit, Nude Aid.

Here's how the Nude Aid erotic art-making and takeaway event works: Admission to Nude Aid is $30. This entitles each guest to experience a spectacular erotic tableau vivant as artists make art, live, with live nude, nearly-nude and fetish-clad models to inspire them. Each guest can choose a piece of art to take home, and may purchase additional tickets (also $30) to trade for additional paintings, drawings, photos, sculptures, collages, or body prints. Handle Valentine's Day shopping needs by purchasing more art and desirables from Nude Aid's silent auction! Enjoy beverages and "whores d'oeuvres" too.

Also, artists and local businesses have donated items for a silent auction. CSC, a 501(c)(3) educational organization, can accept VISA, MasterCard and Discover for silent art auction purchases, door admission, and donations.

Nude Aid has continually been the Center for Sex & Culture's most successful benefit. Donors, models, artists and special guests from past Nude Aid events have included Leonard Nimoy, Annie Sprinkle, Candye Kane, Charles Gatewood, Nina Hartley, Eric Kroll, Sharon Mitchell, Candida Royalle, Winston Smith, Jonathan Solo, Scarlot Harlot, Ruby Pearl, Madison Young, Gloria Leonard, David Steinberg and many more. Nude Aid's 2013 full lineup will be announced soon.

Nude Aid was developed by Annie Sprinkle. The Center for Sex & Culture is grateful for her permission to use her concept and the title for its benefit. Nude Aid welcomes artists, donors of auction items, models, or other volunteers wishing to become involved to get in touch by emailing

The event will take place at the Center for Sex & Culture, 1349 Mission Street in San Francisco.

Note: No one under 18 will be admitted. Relatively easy parking can be found in the neighborhood; several MUNI lines stop in the vicinity, and CSC is three blocks from Civic Center BART.
