2013_2_3HUMP.jpg Flowers, candy, an expensive dinner in a crowded restaurant: if you're anything like us, by the time Valentine's Day rolls around you're sick to death of all that lovey dovey crap. Whatever happened to just, you know, getting it on? On Feb. 15, after you've stopped by Walgreens to pick up some heart-shaped chocolates at 50% off, head over to the Music Box. Dan Savage rolls into town on his Hump! Tour, an evening showcasing the most creative, funny and sexiest homemade dirty movies.

Since 2005, the sex columnist has helped curate an annual film festival of five-minute-long sex shorts and the "best of" selection he's picked out for the tour definitely run the gamut of NSFW. And then some. Animated creatures with boners? Check. Pissing on a trampoline? You got it. Time-traveling back in time to have sex with yourself? Yup. Human/centaur sex? Of course. And, a movie called "Pie Sluts." Savage will introduce the movies and possibly even take some questions from the audience. Now that the Music Box is serving alcohol, you can be sure it'll be a pretty lively event.

The Hump! Tour has three shows on Saturday, Feb. 15; tickets are $25
