CHATSWORTH, Calif.—There was standing room only during the June 18 screening party for Private Media Group’s An Open Invitation: A Real Swingers Party in San Francisco at Club Kiss in San Francisco, a testament to the buzz that’s been surrounding the film since its release.
The soiree commenced with a one hour panel discussion on the contemporary swinging lifestyle, lead by An Open Invitation director Ilana Rothman and leading actress India Summer, as well as Club Kiss hosts and fellow cast members Sarah and Chris Kiss, Dossie Easton, author of The Ethical Slut: A Guide to Infinite Sexual Possibilities, and Carol Queen, grand dame of San Francisco’s progressive sex scene.
While introducing the panel, Queen expressed that An Open Invitation brought her back to the golden ages, where adult cinema was vying for a place alongside mainstream cinema. Easton expressed similar accolades.
Club Kiss noted that they’d never seen so many people attend a discussion panel, and while the event was over capacity, several guests commented that they wished the panel had gone on longer. A full screening of the movie followed the panel presentation, as well as an incredible after party, where couples who were talking about modern relationships only moments before were able to jump in and experience them.
The party moved into full swing with pole dancing, goodies distributed by Good Vibrations. Kelly Moe, the music artists responsible for the An Open Invitation soundtrack, was also performing live at the event. Moe’s music earned the movie an AVN nomination for Best Movie Soundtrack.
Mainstream news outlets were also impressed, with the New York Times, USA Today, and Reality Check TV conducting extensive interviews with the cast and creators of the movie.
“The party was amazing—a huge success,” commented the An Open Invitation creator, who wishes to remain anonymous. “People actually came up to me afterwards, saying they wished the discussion had gone on longer. When has that ever happened at an adult screening?”
