Burlesque sensation Dirty Martini warms up the crowd at ASC's Safer Sex In The City 2006
On June 14, 300 partygoers converged on the Museum of Sex to enjoy an evening of eclectic pleasures—unforgettable performances by burlesque sensation Dirty Martini and World Famous *BOB*; safer sex "demonstrations" showcasing ASC's work in HIV risk reduction; dancing to a riveting, non-stop soundtrack provided by prominent New York City DJs Jackie Christie and Jon Mallow; a silent auction; raffle; and viewing of provocative exhibits at the Museum of Sex.
If you regret not being there to bid on an erotic gift basket at the silent auction, or if you're sad you missed World Famous *BOB*'s "Mae Western" routine and Dirty Martini's sultry feather dance, don't despair—there's always Safer Sex In The City 2007!
"Safer Sex In The City is an incredible combination of good times, good will, and a great cause," explains ASC board member LeLan Martin, "We never lose sight of why we're here—to raise awareness and resources for people affected by HIV/AIDS. That's the very serious mission behind the very serious fun."
