Bike Porn film festival demonstrates the versatility of the bicycle saddle

You could get stickers like this one at the door

“Because we think fucking and biking are vital to your quality of life, and you should do them all the fucking time!” – Rev Phil, festival organizer

Sure, the shape of a bike saddle is kind of suggestive, but I never thought to do THAT with it. But now I’ve seen Bike Porn 4: Play, and I may never look at a saddle the same way again.

I went to the showing at The Mix in Georgetown Saturday and had a great time. Heckling of the films was heavily encouraged, and people whooped and cheered for parts that were funny, sexy, strange, clever and bizarre.

Basically, Bike Porn is a DIY porn festival that has been touring North America and is about to head to Europe. The films all have to do with bicycles in some way, but filmmakers have full creative license to interpret that as they want. And they did. No DVDs are created, so you can only see the films by attending a screening. This frees people up to make films without worrying about it getting online (no film leaks yet, said Rev Phil during the show).

There were a couple Seattle entries. One featured a remarkably funny soaked bike commuter striptease. Watching a man try to be sexy while peeling off soaked rain pants, balancing on one foot while trying to get his shoe through the end of his pant, is hilarious.

Another film, titled Fuck Bike #001, featured a naked man pedaling a complex bicycle machine that powered a long chain reaction of moving parts, the final part being a dildo moving back and forth. Well, you get the idea.

If you didn’t get the chance to see the festival this year, Bike Porn 5 will be around next year. If you have a camera and an idea, the theme should be announced soon…

P.S. In a recent post on the Bike Porn blog, we were referred to as one of “the best pimpers of bikes this state has to offer.” Dunno what bike pimping means, but it sounds like it would be illegal in some states.
