What goes together better than dildos and ice cream?

Nothing, as far as Good Vibrations and Three Twins Organic Ice Cream are concerned, as they join forces just in time for Valentine’s Day 2011 to host the first ever “Pop-Up Dildo Shop & Ice Cream Social.”

The event, which is part of the Noise Pop-Up Shop series, takes place at Fifty24SF Art Gallery in the Lower Haight neighborhood of San Francisco on Sunday, February 13, 2011. It’s a wholesome afternoon of naughty adult-toy workshops, dirty comedy, live music, a mini-pillow fight, drinking PBR and, of course, ice cream.

The BYOP (Bring your own pillow to sit on) event begins with Good Vibrations’ resident Sexologist, Dr. Carol Queen, who will give a workshop on finding the perfect sex toy for yourself or for your favorite partner. The first 25 people to arrive with pillows will get a free mini-vibrator courtesy of Good Vibrations and there will be raffles and naughty giveaways throughout the event to help anyone who needs to replenish their toy supply.

But if you've given your current vibrator more than it can handle, from 3pm to 5pm you can bring a pair those exhausted batteries to recycle at the Three Twins Organic Ice Cream shop next door you'll get a free scoop of organic ice cream. (You can actually bring any pair of batteries to recycle, for that matter—Three Twins are just totally into recycling). Anyone without batteries can still get a great deal with $2 scoops just for using the secret code word “vibrator.”

Stick around after the lecture for comedian Will Franken (“Best Alternative to Psychedelic Drugs - SF Bay Guardian”) performing a special mini set of some of his steamiest, drippiest, and dirtiest material as well as previewing material from his upcoming show, “Grand Opening of a New Baby,” which debuts on February 19th at The Purple Onion.

After the PBR delivery man arrives with cases free beer around 4pm, dance to live music from Female Trouble, a saucy pop music act from San Francisco with girl-on-girl 1960s harmonies and filthy mouths who sing about sex in this fun musical pajama party. And make sure you bring your pillow for a special mid-concert mini pillow fight.

Arrive early for vibrators and ice cream, arrive later for beer, comedy and music.
