(PORTLAND, OR) -- The 2013 CineKink Festival continues their national tour with a one-night screening of sex-positive and kink-friendly films in Oakland, California, on Thursday, August 8. CineKink:Oakland will begin at 7pm with a screening of the "Best of CineKink/2013." All screenings will take place at the New Parkway Theater.
"Best of CineKink/2013"’s Oakland event is sponsored by Feelmore510, Oakland’s first progressive adult store and art gallery. "Feelmore believes that the Urban 'Sexual’ Renewal, which encouraged us to seek out sponsoring CineKink, is just as critical to the development of Oakland as the current economic revitalization that is happening in this powerful city," says Feelmore510 owner Nenna Joiner. "We are truly privileged to pair our brand with other world renowned brands such as CineKink, and this connection speaks volumes to the sentiment of our brand." In addition to sponsoring CineKink, Feelmore510 regularly hosts an Erotic Film Night on the second Friday of every month at the New Parkway, along with workshops at the retail store and other events in the Oakland area.
The New Parkway Theater is an eclectic movie-going experience, where people not only come to watch movies but to have an unforgettable night out with friends and community, offering couch seating, freshly cooked meals and snacks, and local wines and beers on tap.
The "Best of CineKink/2013" short films program is comprised of productions awarded prizes by CineKink jurors at the annual CineKink NYC festival, which takes place each year in late February. With works ranging from documentary to drama, comedy to experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit, this year’s edition includes 50 Seconds of 50 Shades (Bo Blaze), Naked Love: Ea’s Garden (Sara Kimmel), Impact (Mollena Williams), Rift (Keith Hodder), Ritual (Jörg Fockele), Zucht Und Ordnung (Jan Soldat), Amber (Aven Frey, Gala Vanting, and Frank Ly), Krutch (Clark Matthews), and Pinecone (Michael Markham).
"It’s great to be returning to the Bay Area with our programming, and we’re delighted to be working with new partners like Feelmore510," says Lisa Vandever, Co-Founder and Director of CineKink. "It’s exciting to be a part of the new Oakland landscape."
The New Parkway is located at 474 24th St, Oakland, CA. For more information and advance tickets, visit http://cinekink.com/programs-and-events/tour/oakland/ or visit CineKink:Oakland’s social media event pages on Facebook and FetLife. Tickets may also be purchased via BrownPaperTickets.

Feelmore510’s test market was on Oakland street corners, parking lots, bars, and events. Two boxes, 1 Red and 1 Brown. The Red had adult films, and the Brown novelty products. Sure, a few were sold, but much was truly gained by talking to the community about what they truly wanted to see in an adult store in Oakland. There was an extremely huge gap between the quality and quantity of the retail experience. Most Bay Area residents would say they would travel to either Berkeley or San Francisco to purchase mature products as well as offerings of a safe space. Since a kid, Nenna Joiner had been fascinated with Oakland and thought that bringing this type of Retail Experience, Feelmore510, to Oakland could help to not only keep Retail Dollars in the City but also to encourage other real life example that Oakland truly does have a Heart and Intelligence. In order to be a part of the Change, Feelmore510 'got in the game'. It was time to become a part of the solution and assist in the Revitalization of this storied City, Oakland. Almost 2 years later, Nenna and the Feelmore510 team are Thankful for everyone's Prayer's, Hugs, Words of Wisdom, Nourishment, Time, Energy, and Currency, giving complete and total thanks for the honor to not only sell to the Oakland community, but to serve the Oakland community in a great way. Feelmore510’s tag line, "It's More Than Just Sex," demonstrates how Nenna really feels about what they do. Sex is the guise to what they do, which is to ensure equality on a very basic level, uplift in a major way, and acknowledge without question. Just as Feelmore510 began on the street corners of Oakland; Feelmore510's eCommerce site has been launched with the Support, Hearts, and Minds of people that would like Feelmore510 and the Oakland community do better than Well. Feelmore510’s brick-and-mortar location is located at 1703 Telegraph Ave, Oakland, CA. For more information, visit http://Feelmore510.com.
