Frank Moore
sees more pussy
than your average
pet shop
has had Annie Sprinkle
acrosss his lap
has survived
the calamity
and holocaust
and gethsemani
of life, yet
smiles like a
beautific child
when cameras
gun him down.

-- Robert L. Penick

Hi, I am Frank Moore, your host.

Well, you came into our reality cave even after that warning. That should mean you are an adult willing to be in a reality without padding, limits, taboos... that you are willing to be offended, challenged, shocked, turned-on, inspired, touched, moved to tears or to laughter by words, images, bodies, ideas. If you are not such a willing adult, please leave now.

You who are under 18-21, don't come in! God knows, we don't want to corrupt your morals!

And you thought-cops, please note all of the contents of this web of reality are art and/or social commentary ... and hence protected speech. But if you want to tango with me... well, I have my dancing shoes on. After all, I was one of the original seven performance artists Sen. Jesse Helms targeted as "obscene" ... and I am still doing art!

Monday, June 17, 1996

I wrote the above before THE TELECOMMUNATION BILL was thrown out with the trash. But I will keep the above up because there will always be thought-cops and other forces of repression with their cold mugs of hemlock. We artists who deal in cultural subversion (some call it corruption of morals) should always be prepared to take that bitter drink. And as for teenagers ... as I remember my youth, being an idealist with the revolutionary bent, there was nothing that could keep me from The Underground. I would always sneak into the circus tent of the forbidden.

Now that we got all that out of the way, come right this way ...
explore The Web of All Possibilities ... get lost in it ... spend hours here! Here, around every corner, you will come across underground artists such as Mapplethorpe, Giger, Annie Sprinkle, Veronica Vera, LaBash, Karen Finley, Leslie Barany, Eric Kroll, Paul Krassner, and dozens more! And of course, me!

So again, come right this way!

Dedicated to Frank Moore on his 57th Birthday

Joy is an ocean polishing us
A little friction kept cool between friends,
neighbor granules of granite in the
tumbling turns of time and tide.
We succumb as soft playmates of surf
echoing her lyrical rocking.

With love and gratitude, Kirsten Rose

If you like what you see and want to be a part of the (r)evolution ... risk it! E-mail ME (fmoore@eroplay.com) ... Send me (copies of) your writings, art, music, whatever ... and a SASE if it is by snail mail (P.O. Box 11445, Berkeley, CA 94712) and if you want your stuff back ... and I might send it through one of our several channels of underground communications ... but be patient ... our channels are small!
We have noticed that you guys and gals are going to pages with sexy sounding titles. This is understandable and human. But you are missing a lot of erotically hot stuff! This is because I don't play fair! I have put a lot of the hot stuff (a lot of which is rare) throughout the site without screaming labels. So, to see and hear "the good stuff," you'll have to explore the site, page by page ... it'll be worth it! And one hint ... The Hot Links are just that ... HOT!!!
BTW, if you find the work on this site a part of your dream and you want to do something with me ... either study with me and/or be in my art ... e-mail ME. This is especially true if you live in the S. F. Bay Area. But even if you live far away, we can work something out. For example, I performed in L. A., Tempe, and Toronto in the past year ... and needed local people for my cast!

And that reminds me ... you could always get me to your city and country to perform! Or buy something from the Catalog!

Cheap and Available,

Come right this way!
