New York’s sexiest storytelling show is now monthly in Philadelphia!
Bare! True Stories of Sex, Desire and Romance brings together storytellers, comedians, sex educators and others to share true tales from their own experiences of sex, desire and romance. With stories as diverse as the people telling them, Bare! opens doors to bedrooms, back seats and dungeons to tell what your mama left out about the birds, bees and in-betweens.
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two)
. . . and you! Put your name in the hat for a chance to bare all on the Bare! stage.

A Sexy Storytelling Open Mic, biweekly in New York.

Vickie Fernandez is an award-winning writer, storyteller and comedian. Her stories have appeared in a number of publications you’ve probably never heard of, but should check out. When she’s not working on her memoir and wrangling new unruly tales into submission you can find her performing her stories and telling jokes all over Philadelphia. She hopes to someday move to Mexico and live in a brightly colored house with plenty of room for her pet monkeys, Frida Kahlo shrines and disproportionate collection of cowboy boots.
A former elementary school teacher with a lifelong passion for the bizarre and filthy, Monica Graziosi now works as a Domme and sex-positive educator. She sometimes takes her clothes off and performs under the name Carmen Monoxide, and her favorite things include cephalopods, sparkly stuff, goat cheese, meeting new people and coming. Monica: educator, BDSM worker, exhibitionist, orgasm enthusiast and general troublemaker.
Geoff Jackson was born on the shores of the Red Sea in the once glamorous port city of Yanbu. As a child he was ranked among the top ten skiers in the United States. He attended several boarding schools and was forcibly ejected from most of them. He is a decorated haiku champion. Geoff Jackson has told jokes and stories in coffee shops, bookstores, nightclubs, tiki bars, and punk rock basements across the US, UK, and Canada.
David Piccolomini is a comedian and bad at keeping things professional. So I’ll just level with you, person reading this (person reading this hopefully not when I’m onstage): I’m mostly a comedian but I have a fondness for adventures and I really like telling about them. I believe that good stories are the best currency we have as a people and I, for one, aim to be Scrooge McDuck. I won a couple of awards for playwriting a while ago, but the format seems so dramatically (pun!) different, I don’t know if that even matters. Anyway, just sit back and relax while I go up there and bare my soul out to you. If it works, then afterward let’s kick back and have a drink. If it doesn’t, let’s have several.
Bitey Switch is a professional switch and sex educator. She has been in the kink scene for three years . . . and has been slutting it up even longer than that! Throughout her various sexcapades, Bitey has adopted a fuck-and-tell policy that will have you at the edge of your seat.
