Bawdy Storytelling ‘JACKPOT!’
June 21, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm$25 - $35
ABOUT BAWDY STORYTELLING
Storytelling is about building a connection. So is sex.
For the past 11 years, Bawdy has featured true stories of sex, kink, body image, gender and more to build community and bring people together. We do regular live storytelling events in two cities, but that’s just one way to enjoy Bawdy. Our podcast and YouTube channel are great ways to get your Bawdy fix, too.
Our live events feature an eclectic mix of authors, poets, comedians and actors – along with real people just like you – sharing their adventures in ten minutes or less, with no notes. This is honest-to-badness story time with true sexcapades and poignant, transformational tales at each and every show. Storytellers submit their material online and are chosen for their panache and sense of (mis)adventure. Dixie curates submitted stories, then works with experienced and first-time storytellers to create a one-of-a-kind evening for each and every Bawdy. Her coaching superpowers tease out surprisingly powerful stories of sex, kink or gender. Then at showtime, Dixie coaches the audience, too – creating an emotionally supportive, unintimidating, and sex-positive atmosphere that’s unique, engaging and fun. Add connecting games (like the ever-popular Bang-O) and you have a show that’ll be your new favorite social event EVER.
Come see what LA Weekly calls “The Moth for pervs” and meet new, open-minded people. Before you know it, you’ll be wanting to share your stories, too.
