Darklady Gets ‘Back to Basics’ with 10th Annual Portland Masturbate-a-thon

PORTLAND, Ore.—Darklady events began as house parties. Due to ongoing tension between the city of Portland and the nightclub originally selected for this year’s event, the 10th Annual Portland Masturbate-a-thon will return to its house party roots on June 12.

Located 2 miles from the now-unavailable nightclub (and a mere two blocks from the infamous Pirate Flag House), Darklady Estates and Wonderground will literally pack the house with sex-positive socializing, non-coital sexing, and charitable fundraising.

“Back to Basics: and What’s More Basic than Masturbating in a Basement” is the new theme for this year’s soiree, which will feature Thrillhammer, Sybian, and Monkey Rocker rides by guests and porn stars Noname Jane, Amber Chase, and Sophia St. James, as well as a Real Touch demo by either a lucky guest or male porn professional Dick Tracy or Tyger Hudson.

San Francisco DJ Zulu and Portland DJ Ralphaliscious will contribute mood-enhancing mixes and a wandering gypsy swing duo will provide softer sounds throughout the soiree, while the Naughty Barber offers intimate shaves, the Naughty Baker serves up oral delights, the Tarot Wizard shares glimpses into the future, and “Sola,” April Flores’ one-woman video, adds visual inspiration.

“While it would have been wonderful to have partied in an upscale nightclub, the Darklings and I agree that bringing it back home for the 10th anniversary feels good. The Portland version of this event started in my home, so it’s appropriate to celebrate it there yet again,” Darklady explained. “Regardless of location, my guests are the ultimate reason for the success of my events and I’m delighted to welcome them to my humble Estates. Returning to the historic BYOB/potluck nature of this party favorite will allow us to focus more on the delicious art of self-pleasure, including an array of innovative erotic stimulation devices. It will also leave us with more pocket money to put toward silent auction items, which will help the worthy local and national sex-positive organizations we’re supporting this year.”

A percentage of the door, in addition to all silent auction funds raised and hygiene, household, pet, and food donations collected during the event, will benefit Esther’s Pantry, the Woodhull Freedom Foundation, and the newly formed adult-consumer-focused nonprofit Free Speech Alliance.

Current sponsors include Fascinations, Taboo Video, HotMovies, GrrlToys, X-Rated Toys, Cascade AIDS Project, and Wet.

Sponsors, silent auction donors and others interested in contributing to or participating in the 10th Annual Portland Masturbate-a-thon are encouraged to contact Darklady for details.
