Luke+Jack present: Sexxxy Beasts and Wheelchairs

October 4 @ 9:15 pm - 10:45 pm

Free - £8
A white person with short blond hair and bright red lipstick grins at the camera, their hand resting on their chin, as another white person with short mousy hair kisses their chest.

How we are (un)represented as Deaf and Disabled people has a huge impact on our lives. Exploring such representation, we take a look at queer porn made by and about Deaf and Disabled queer people. With work by DIY queer filmmaker and activist, Loree Erickson, and self-described “bad ass, fat ass, Jew, dyke amputee,” Nomy Lamm. Also featuring films by Morty Diamond, Nikki Silver, and Pandora Blake with Deaf and Disabled performers taking control of their own narratives. Join us for everyday ableism crossed with seductive images of disability; pervy, polyamorous BDSM; sexy nurse roleplay; even sexxxier wheelchairs; and fat-bodied, amputee eroticism.

Filmmaker Loree Erickson will join us after the screening for a Q&A.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.

Trans Entities: The Nasty Love of Papí and Wil (20m)
Dir: Morty Diamond, Country: USA, Year: 2007, Language/s: English
Papi and Will is a film about a hot, pervy, loving, polyamorous transgender couple. On screen Papi and Will share with the viewer everything from their unique perspective on gender identity to how they negotiate multiple partners in their life. The sex scenes are filled with raw, uninhibited exploration and incorporate BDSM, roleplay, and a lot of hot sex! This scene shows Papi and Will playing with a partner who is Deaf.

Content note: Depiction of graphic sex and consensual non-consent; discussion of racism.

Want (9m)
Dir: Loree Erickson, Country: Canada, Year: 2006, Language/s: English
Want weaves together sexually explicit images with everyday moments and scenes of the ableist world. It works to get people hot and poses an insightful, complex, honest, and sexy image of disability.

Content note: Depiction of sex and ableism.

Sexxxy (3m)
Dir: Loree Erickson, Country: Canada, Year: 2006, Language/s: English
Sexxxy compels the viewer to take a closer look at wheelchairs and the people who use them.

Content note: None.

Waiting for Beast (10m)
Dir: Nikki Silver, Country: USA, Year: 2014, Language/s: English
Waiting for Beast is at once a whimsical nod at the camp of queer porn and a political, intimate commentary on life. As a wheelchair punk my DIY, my freedom, is mutual aid. We work with what we got! During the making of this film, I was waiting for a new power chair, waiting for folks to meet me as they can, and in turn, people wait for me as I romp around and am pushed in my manual chair. This is wheelchair smut, and we have various ways of getting our chairs and our sexy selves where we need to go.” Lyric Seal

Content note: Depiction of sex including light BDSM.

Sadistic Nurse (11m)
Dir: Pandora Blake, Country: UK, Year: 2015, Language/s: English
This hot and very edgy spanking scenario was written by the performers, real-life couple David Weston and Talia Lane. They wanted to explore a humiliating punishment that incorporates David’s wheelchair, creating a scene in which his character is completely helpless.

Content note: Depiction of sex including BDSM and consensual non-consent.

Wall of Fire (6m)
Dir: Lisa Ganser, Nomy Lamm, Country: USA, Year: unknown, Language/s: English
Roles switch, paddles hit & control shifts when two fat bodied gender queer women, lovers off camera, push limits of pleasure, penetration & trust, engaged in an afternoon of tender making out and consensual amputee sex.

Content note: Depiction of sex including BDSM.
