For the past three years we have toiled to bring progressive ideas about
sexuality and transportation forward. These days just about anyone can
make a movie, but actually getting it shown in front of a audience is much
more difficult. We take those strong, independent voices and give them a
platform to share their ideas about the connections between sex and
bicycling.

What we are talking about is an LBGT and hetero friendly program of
progressive bike sexuality. It really is that amazing. Feeling bicycle
curious? Check out one of the trailers on www.bikesmut.com

Here's how one of our interns put it:

Bike Porn is civic

Current political policies are designed to repress sexual expression and
transportation choice. The Bike Porn film festival challenges that trend
by enthusiastically displaying the quality of creative expression and the
amount of fun inherent to both bicycling and sex. Both activities are
worthy elements of a healthy lifestyle and a pleasant quality of life. -
Jeffrey Jacobson

Starting in February the Backlash Tour will take us more than 10,000 miles
to visit some 50 cities in 100 days. It is quite a challenge, but since we
don't sell DVDs this is the only way to share the movies while keeping the
filmmakers' privacy.

The thoughtful pacing of the program and live performances draw people in
at the beginning and get the audience on their feet when it is done. The
show is quite an exhilarating experience, but the magic happens afterwards
when people who otherwise would feel uncomfortable discussing sex, gender
or other topics are able to speak freely. Having watched the movies they
have a common experience that feels good and makes them want to share
their feelings.
