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 well-put-together storytellers braid stories of ladies they’ve encountered, met or become.
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Spill!)
Diane Ivey (Story League)
Victoria Rocha (Vagina Monologues)
. . . and more! Put 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 sex toy, courtesy of Adam & Eve.
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.
Diane Ivey is a writer and storyteller. From a self-composed how-to guide on being an adventure heroine, to an obsessive college crush on the vaguely-Harrison-Ford-resembling editor of her college newspaper, to sundry forays into erotic historical fanfiction, Diane’s material comes from the tragic and hilarious place where fangirl obsession meets real life. Diane first performed in the January 2009 production of Mortified Chicago, reading her seventh-grade diary detailing her grandiose plans to write the next Gone With the Wind. She regularly performs with Story League in Washington, D.C.
Morgan describes herself as a “middle-aged woman, provided she lives to be one hundred and eighteen.” A transgendered comic and storyteller, Morgan has appeared at Gotham Comedy Club, Harvey’s in the Castro, The Punchline in San Francisco and the legendary Purple Onion.
Victoria Rocha is an emerging raconteur as she navigates the storytelling waters of DC, including her first storytelling performances at Speakeasy DC and Story League in February—both, not-so-shockingly, about sex, one her favorite topics. Still, Victoria is not new to performing, with her first role at age eight in Young Chautauqua as General George Custer. The company’s only female to portray a male, Victoria just loves the facial hair—it’s like bonsai of the face. Her collegiate theatrical training included acting, improv and stage make-up. Since moving to Washington, DC from Nevada, Victoria was in The Firm’s production of the Vagina Monologues in 2010 and 2011. Victoria has fallen in love with storytelling and is hoping, with some encouragement, to attempt stand-up in the near future.
