Oddball Films presents Sexual Miseducation, a night of vintage 16mm sex ed shorts, burlesque, smut and stag films from the 1910s-1970s. This sinful program features tons of new discoveries from the archive, including one of the very first pornos, stop-motion bean bags getting it on, homegrown local erotica, and even stereoscopic nudies. Peter Sellers voices a bumbling father explaining sex to his child in the hilarious Halas and Batchelor cartoon Birds, Bees and Storks (1965). Find out Are You Ready For Sex? (1978) with the help of a bearded doctor and several melodramatizations. Hop on board for what some say is America's first hardcore porn (and the only hardcore we will be screening this night), the notorious silent stag film A Free Ride AKA Grass Sandwich (1915). San Francisco co-stars in The Screening Room (1970s), an erotic tale of two lovers shooting a porno in Renaissance costumes, then seeing themselves on a North Beach screen. A buxom blonde marionette gets into burlesque with Doll Dance (1940s). Mrs. John Barrymore does the least enticing striptease you've never seen in the entirely unsexy How to Undress for your Husband (1937). San Francisco's own radical sexual-awareness ministry the Multi-Media Resource Centers brings us three super short-shorts on the lighter side of sex-ed: bean bag frogs get it on in a variety of human sexual positions in The Love Toad (1970), the all-too sensual act of peeling citrus in Orange (1970), and a hyper-speed sexual rendezvous in A Quickie (1969). Play with your toys in a non-XXX excerpt of bizarro porno Orgy of the Dolls (1970s). Plus, four unscreened 1940s nudie cuties: Busman's Holiday, a film for serious artists only, Fanny with Cheeks of Tan and Tantalizing Torso from Seaside Films, and the double vision of Stereoscopic Smut! Early birds will watch as a high school class makes a film about contraceptives in The Birth Control Movie (1982).
