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 fresh-cheeked storytellers unveil the gentle bloom of tales of innocence lost. Expect to blush.
Hosted by Jefferson (Writer, Storyteller, One Life Take Two)
Cammi Climaco (The Moth, Ask Me)
Michelle-Leona Godin (The Star of Happiness)
Michael Soviero (The Moth, Told)
Spycey Spyce (Spycey Buzz)
Musical guest Corey Sky
. . . and you! You have a story about innocences lost or retained. 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.
Jefferson is the curator and host of Bare. A sex educator and writer, Jefferson keeps a pseudonymous blog, One Life, Take Two, that details his life as a parent and pervert. He is a storyteller frequently seen on stages around the city and elsewhere, including The Moth, where he is a StorySlam winner. He is also host of the monthly series Spill! True Stories of Queer Sex, Desire and Romance.
Cammi Climaco is a visual artist, storyteller and performance artist. She is the co-host of the storytelling show Ask Me Stories. Her work has been exhibited internationally. She has performed on a bunch of storytelling and stand up shows. Cammi teaches at Pratt Institute of Art. If you apply to Pratt’s four year undergraduate program in Fine Arts, get in, go through the Freshmen Foundations year, spend $80,000 in your sophomore year, you can take her class. She is good at parties.
Dr. Michelle-Leona Godin is a writer and performer whose one-woman, two-voice, three-act autobiographical treatment of Helen Keller’s time on vaudeville (it’s true!), called The Star of Happiness, just finished its second run at Horse Trade’s Kraine Theater and will tour next spring. She received her Ph.D. in early modern literature from New York University’s English Department, where she is a regular adjunct and occasional faculty. She performs at comedy, storytelling and variety shows, including KickAssonance, Sideshow Goshko, The Moth Mainstage, Tell Your Friends, The Liar Show, and at many music venues, both with her former band Gutter & Spine and currently as a solo act which can only be described as an avant accordion brain smash.
Corey Sky hails from Corvalis, Oregon, where he began playing guitar and singing in high school with the hope of impressing girls. He first took the stage as a Junior, attempting a cover of the Animals’ “House of the Rising Sun.” He was too nervous to play and stumbled through the song a cappella. Mortified by the experience, Corey gave up music forever. “Forever” ended just before he arrived in Brooklyn, where he is a prolific songwriter and performer.
Michael Soviero has been on a stage since he was sixteen, trying to make the world smile one laugh at a time. He’s been performing at storytelling shows for the last year and has already been to The MothSlam three times, though he has yet to claim the big prize. He’s been on the show Told and enjoys letting the world into his messed-up past. Michael owes a lot to the two grandfathers who shaped the man he is today. He splits his heart between three names: Mary, Lina and Giada.
Spycey Spyce is an “erotic edu-tainer” based in Asheville, North Carolina. She hosts the popular Spycey Buzz Radio Show, featuring special guests and frank, open talk about sex and sexuality. Her storytelling credits include an appearance at Bawdy Storytelling in San Francisco.
