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 intrepid storytellers as they tell tales of trials and tribulation.

Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two)

Alanna Kennedy-Gorman (Writer)

Lisa Kirchner (Hello American Lady Creature)

. . . and you! Put your name in the hat for a chance to bare all on the Bare! stage.
