A stacked event with over 25 performers and 80 visual artists—even including pole performances, sex educators, BDSM demos and erotic drinks and snacks(!)—Safeword provides a safe space to explore eroticism and sex through the work of diverse artists. Get your expectation rightly aroused: The Otherworldly Artists Collective, which hosts other great events throughout the year, such as the Gods and Monsters Art Show and the Unicorn Art Show, puts on the art show. Heads up: This sexy soire is sold out on Friday, but has some tix on Saturday. Friday-Saturday, February 14-15th, 7 PM. $20. —Eric Johnson
