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 unpredictable storytellers offer eye-popping tales of surprise:
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Spill!)
Selena Coppock (The New Rules for Blondes)
J. LaLonde (Word Thug)
Liam McEneaney (Tell Your Friends!)
Musical guest Juliet Jeske
. . . and more! You’ve been stunned or simply been stunning. Surprise everyone by putting your name in the hat for a chance to bare all on the Bare! stage.
. . . and still more! One luck audience member will win a raffle prize courtesy of Shag.
