Social Kink Sponsors AIDS/LifeCycle Fundraiser

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - has announced its sponsorship of the "Bang 4 the Buck" party set for 6:30 p.m. Friday at The Citadel in San Francisco.


Hosted by Midori and Kelly B., the ladies-only party is a fundraiser for AIDS/LifeCycle, a seven-day, 545-mile journey down the California coast that will bring together 2,500 cyclists and 500 volunteer "roadies" to raise support for HIV/AIDS prevention and care.


The event will begin with free stripping lessons from Ms. Indigo Blue, headmistress of the Academy of the Burlesque, and will continue until 2 a.m., wrapping up with the "Sizzling Sex and Play Party."


Midori, an educator on adventurous sexuality, writes for Social Kink and is well known among the fetish community. Social Kink's sponsorship of the event was born from that relationship and the site's dedication to the community it unites.


"Social Kink is fully behind this cause, as all in the industry should strive to be," Social Kink Webmaster Nikki Nefarious said. "Midori is such a force in our community, and we are thrilled to be working with her once again. We encourage everyone to do their part for AIDS/Lifecycle."


A $20 "Big Bang" ticket provides access to all of the night's events.


The entire $20 from each ticket will support Midori and Kelly B.'s AIDS/LifeCycle efforts. Proceeds from the event will benefit the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.
