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 our hot-for-teacher storytellers as they instruct us with tales of schooling and being schooled:

Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Spill!)

Amy Jo Goddard (Sexual Empowerment Coach)

Rod J. Sayegh (The P.I.T.)

Kate Tellers (The Moth)

Sasheer Zamata (UCB)

Musical guest Cynthia Kaplan

. . . and you! You learned a few lessons and no doubt taught a few. 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.
