Each month, 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.
Join our restless storytellers as they tell of paths worn on the prowl:
. . . and more! You’ve been on the make. Put your name in the hat for your chance to bare all on the Bare! stage.
