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.
Join us as this resolute crew inspires you to make new resolutions (or perhaps break a few old ones):
Hosted by Jefferson (Writer, One Life Take Two)
Andy Christie (Storyteller, The Liar Show)
Michele Carlo (Moth, Fish Out Of Aqua)
Rachel Garber Cole (InDigest Magazine, Rachel and the Elf)
Mollena Williams (Sex Educator, Actor, The Perverted Negress)
Musical guest Joe Yoga (Downward Dogs)
. . . and you! Ever gained or lost your resolve? Felt compelled to make or break a resolution? 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.
