If the words "sex education" conjure up slide shows of nasty infections and lateral views of genitalia, then it's time to get re-schooled with the Punany Poets. This cabaret version of sex ed features Jessica Holter, an author and activist who has a passion for poetry and getting it on. For one night only, Holter will put on her hottest performance — The Head Doctor Show, a mix of sex-positive information, erotic poetry and cabaret-style theater that begins with a 30-minute interactive Q&A where audience members get to ask their most personal questions and get the most straightforward answers. Stick around for the 90-minute performance that explores fantasy, pleasure, relationships and sexuality in society. Holter will delve into poverty and pleasure at the same time, never losing her sense of humor or goal for sex-positive, non-judgmental sexual healing. Forget that banana and condom demo — and your inhibitions — it's time for a true erotic education.

Fri., Nov. 25, 9 p.m., $40, Starlight Ballroom, 460 N. Ninth St., 888-277-2207, punanysplayhouse.com.
