Forget about flowers and chocolates, nothing says “I love you” like “sexo y violencia.” At Lucha Va Voom's “My Kinky Valentine,” you'll be sweatily smothered in both (especially if you get a ringside seat). Got a masked man fetish? LVV's has 'em, and this year's show offers the U.S. debut of Mexico's muy macho Mascara Sagrada with returning “sexy beast” Hector Garza for the centerpiece wrestling bout. Man slamming, shoving and pinning is all good, but beguiling burlesque is what really gets hearts pumping here: NYC's Legs Malone (a “6 foot tall, legs n' all” Bettie Page lookalike) and Chicago's Michelle L'amour (aka the “wild caged animal”) rock the ring with local lovely Karis, double trouble sister act The Poubelles, tassel-twirling tarts Lucy Fur and Lux Lacroix and Vavoom's head mistress Ursulina. In between the crush-worthy gals and bone-crushing action there'll be comedy from Blaine Capatch and swingin' south of the border sounds from the appropriately named Senor Amor.
