Erotic Art Show to Officially, Finally Get DC Laid

Wonkabout

MOCA DC, a small nonprofit gallery near the canal in Georgetown, prides itself on showing under-represented artwork. But its Erotica exhibit opening tonight is probably not the kind of material lacking for a market. It kicks off with a live photoshoot of a Playboy model, and marches on bravely from there.


This is the fifth annual erotic art show put on by MOCA DC (Wonkette even crashed one!), and it's safe to say they know what they're doing at this point. In addition to Angelina Leigh, the Playboy representative, there will be a gaggle of local models whose main purpose appears to be riling up the author of the Sexist Blog at the City Paper. At 8PM, there is a live body-painting session (to watch, not join) and the opportunity to get your photo taken with Miss Leigh.

As lovely as all this sounds, it's possible there's a few of you rather skeezed out by the whole thing. Though Wonkette's party crash pictures have disappeared into the Gawker server from whence they came, ArtDC has a review of the 2008 show. You can check there for proof that it's an actual gallery with regular-looking non-panting patrons. And don't forget the free wine bar!

Erotica 2009, Friday, 6PM to 10PM or later, free! [MOCA DC]

Tough week for Suzanne Israel Tufts, the nice Trump campaign lady with no experience doing investigations who was almost appointed to oversee, or at least overlook, the Interior Department's four ongoing investigations into Ryan Zinke's "ethics," for want of a better word. Not only did she not get that nice job as acting inspector general after the media got hold of the story and everyone said it stank to high heaven, but Tufts, who had been employed at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, suddenly up and quit that job too late Friday. Pour out a 40 (gallon barrel of industrial waste, into a poor community's water source) for her, won't you?

Once again, the Trump administration is coming after birth control. Specifically, they are looking to issue rules that would roll back the Affordable Care Act mandate that requires that most employers provide insurance that covers it, which would leave god knows how many women across the country without access. The administration had previously attempted to eliminate this mandate last year, but said attempt was blocked by two federal judges on the grounds that doing so would cause "serious and irreparable harm."

But now they're trying again, because forcing people to have unwanted children just seems like a really fantastic time to them, I guess. If these rules manage to get passed, and if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade as it is expected to, the Right will soon be closer than ever to the future filled with barefoot and pregnant women making them sandwiches that they have always dreamed of. For the rest of us, it will be a pretty shitty time.
