Milwaukee Film Festival showing: THE LOVE WITCH
The Tool Shed is a Community Partner in showing this film at the Milwaukee Film Festival!
SHOWING: Saturday, September 24, 10:00 pm at the Downer Theatre
SHOWING: Friday, September 30, 9:00 pm at the Times Cinema
The beautiful and alluring Elaine uses every spell and bit of magic at her disposal to make men fall in love with her. But after each successful conquest, the men become simpering simpletons unworthy of her affection, leaving Elaine with a growing body count and growing desperation to find the perfect mate. An absolute aesthetic delight from director Anna Biller, The Love Witch features succulent Technicolor imagery (filmed in 35mm!) and impeccably designed costumes and sets, perfectly evoking the gauzy sexploitation horror movies of the ‘60s and ‘70s. That the film also provides trenchant commentary on female desire and gender roles is icing on the formally seductive cake.

We’re happy to be a community partner of The Love Witch! Get tickets and information at https://mkefilm.org/the-love-witch/. And be sure to check out the rest of the festival's offerings. We're truly lucky to be in a city with such a great annual film fest!

Take It Like a Man with Cooper Becket and Lyndzi Miller
Friday, September 30, 8:30 pm
Pegging - The act of a female giving anal sex to a male using a strap-on. Some couples enjoy the power reversal of this and some guys simply just like it up the arse. (source: Urban Dictionary) Here at the Tool Shed we get questions about pegging every day. How do we do it? What are the right tools for the job? Does it actually feel good? I'm a straight guy, will pegging make me gay? 

Lyndzi Miller, Tool Shed staff member and sexuality educator, and Cooper Becket, Life on the Swingset podcaster, will answer these questions and cover all of the basics of pegging, a sexual activity that is quickly gaining popularity. They'll also talk about safety, male anatomy and the health benefits of being pegged. Yes guys, that's right. Taking it in the boot is actually good for you! 

$15 per person/$25 per couple. Register online.

Ladies Night: Bottom's Up! with Lyndzi Miller and Lucky Tomaszek
Saturday, October 1, 8:30 pm
We're going to start at the beginning, and talk about all different kinds of butt fun for you to explore on your own, or with a partner. There are so many ways to enjoy anal play - touching, rimming, fingering and penetrating with a penis or toy. We'll talk about all of them! This class will look at safety, pleasure, communication and the right tools for the job.

Staffers Lucky and Lyndzi have both worked at The Tool Shed for four years. They get to answer health and pleasure questions all day at work, and love teaching groups. Lyndzi is the moderator of the Milwaukee Poly Group, which meets monthly at the Tool Shed. Lucky serves as the store's education coordinator.

$10 per person. Register online.
