Annie Sprinkle’s
Herstory of Porn

Written and Performed by Annie Sprinkle
Presented by The VORTEX
in conjunction with Annie Sprinkles


This will be Austin’s last chance to see Annie Sprinkle’s Herstory of Porn live on stage as Annie prepares to retire this piece. Join Dr. Sprinkle, who has just received her PhD in Human Sexuality, as she explores the evolution of porn, combining theatre and film for an amazing social-political chronicle of Annie Sprinkle’s career including her work in feminist pornography. This work is an important look at the controversial porn industry and its function in society. Whether you love porn or hate porn, this piece is for you--An important statement on our world and our sexuality.

Adults only. No one under 18 will be admitted. Annie’s previous Austin engagements have all sold-out in advance. Don’t miss out. Please note that the Thursday performance will be for women, transgender, and men dressed as women only.

Annie is also pleased to announce the publication of her new book Hardcore from the Heart: Pleasures, Profits and Politics of Sex in Performance.

Like a master watchmaker, she has probed the ticking heart of prudish America and attempted to reset its time, to alter its bizarre climate of contradictions.

The production is less a performance piece than an evangelist’s call for sexual healing, for the freeing of repressed desires.

Her oeuvre is a fascinating testament to the sexual imagination, and a reminder of the creativity of the porn industry in the late ‘70s . . .
