New York’s sexiest storytelling show is now monthly in Boston. Join us first Mondays at The Middle East.

Bare! True Stories of Sex, Desire and Romance 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 ever-experimenting storytellers offer eye-popping tales of novelty:

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

Princess Kali (The Kink Academy)

Robin Maxfield (Comedy With Wings)

Andy Ofiesh (Naked Comedy Showcase)

Shari VanderWerf (Late Listed)

. . . and more! You’ve tried new things—or been tried by them. Take the novel step of putting your name in the hat for a chance to bare all on the Bare! stage.

. . . and still more! One lucky audience member will win a sexy raffle prize courtesy of Hubba Hubba.
