It’s mid-July and hopefully by now you’ve had the chance to get some proper summer lovin’. If not, then Greenpoint’s first ever erotic book fair and sexy afterparty this weekend might be the perfect place for you to get your summertime jollies. MATTE Magazine is presenting the Brooklyn Dirty Book Fair Saturday and Sunday July 15th and 16th, from 12pm-9pm at Point Green Studio (260 Java Street). You can find out more details and RSVP on Facebook.

From the organizers:

Crushed, the first annual Brooklyn Dirty Book Fair, is a platform for independent publishers of erotic and pornographic material and artists working with sex. Curated by former VICE Photo Editor Matthew Leifheit, the fair will feature two small-scale exhibitions, a selection of publications and prints for sale, a program of performances and readings, live nude classical and jazz musicians, smutty film screenings, and an orgy afterparty.

The film screenings will take place on Saturday, from 7 – 9pm, and the NYC Inferno “orgy afterparty” is happening Saturday from 10pm-5am, at a secret Brooklyn location ($25; $3 clothes/coat check). You must RSVP to receive the party location.

Artist and musician M Lamar will be performing Sunday at 6pm, premiering American Cuck, a new multi-sensory live performance work-in-progress.
