Berkeley Math Prof Edward Frenkel Branches Out Into Erotic Film: "University of California-Berkeley Professor Edward Frenkel is world-renowned for his work with automorphic representations and the geometric Langlands conjecture.

He's also a trailblazer in a different arena: erotic film.

Frankel, 41, invested €100,000 to produce and star in 'Rites of Love and Math,' a 'sprawling allegory' during which the mathematician has sex on screen."

Hat tip to Seepy Benton, who wishes he'd done this first.

    Yes, nothing attains world renown like automorphic representations and geometic Langlands conjectures...
