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.
Rack ‘em up for tales of miscues from these sure-shot storytellers:
Hosted by Jefferson (Writer, One Life Take Two)
Eugene Ashton-Gonzalez (New York Confidential)
Selena Coppock (Connotations)
David Crabb (Ask Me, Bad Kid)
Sinnamon Love (Urban X and AVN Awards Hall of Famer)
Musical Guest Jessica Delfino
. . . and you! Ever missed a break? Put your name your name to the corner pocket 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.
