Jefferson is the curator and host of Bare!, regularly in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. 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 New York and elsewhere, including The Moth, where he is a StorySLAM winner. He is also host of Foreplay!

Shivali Goudar

Shivali Goudar

Shivali Goudar is a comedian and singer laugh-rocking her way around the many stages of the DC area. Originally hailing from Texas, this performer has a larger-than-life personality that will leave you captivated and craving something sweet. When she’s not singing and slinging jokes, you can find her co-producing and hosting The Encyclopedia Show DC on the first Friday of every month. She prefers her martinis extra dirty, enjoys trivia and has incredibly awful depth perception. With heels as high the sky, there’s a significant chance she’ll fall off the stage.

Monica

A former elementary school teacher with a lifelong passion for the bizarre and filthy, Monica Graziosi now works as a Domme and sex-positive educator. She sometimes takes her clothes off and performs under the name Carmen Monoxide, and her favorite things include cephalopods, sparkly stuff, goat cheese, meeting new people and coming. Monica: educator, BDSM worker, exhibitionist, orgasm enthusiast and general troublemaker.
