Each month, Bare! 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.
This month, our scrappy gang tells stories of scrapes that left them marked.
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Spill!)
Cammi Climaco (Ask Me Stories)
Kambri Crews (Burn Down the Ground)
Abbi Crutchfield (Positively Awesome)
William Mullin (Santa Fe Comedy Festival)
Musical guest Jen Kwok
. . . and you! You have a story of being marked or leaving your mark. Put your name in the hat for a chance to bare all on the Bare! stage.
And more! One lucky audience member will win Bare!’s sex-toy raffle, courtesy of Babeland.
