What is Bawdy Storytelling?

Bawdy Storytelling is the Original Sex and Storytelling series!

We’re a live stage event – currently in 4 cities, with more soon! – that features real people sharing their bona fide exploits in 10 minutes or less. Storytellers are an eclectic mix of authors, poets, comedians and actors – along with real people just like you who have submitted their stories online and were chosen for their panache and sense of (mis)adventure. Storytelling is about building a connection, and so is Sex. For over 9 years, Bawdy has featured true stories of sex, kink, body image, gender and more to build community and bring people together. Come see a live show, play Bang-O and meet new, open-minded people. We’d love to have you join us!

There is a place to celebrate the joy and wild abandon of this thing we all do called Sex – and that place is Bawdy Storytelling. Sexual Folklorist Dixie De La Tour curates submitted stories, then works with experienced and first-time storytellers to create a one-of-a-kind evening for each and every Bawdy.

She coaches each storyteller, teasing out surprisingly powerful stories of Sex, Kink or Gender. Then at showtime, Dixie coaches the audience, too – creating an emotionally supportive, unintimidating, and sex-positive atmosphere that’s unique, engaging and fun. Add connecting games and ice breakers & you have a show that’ll be your new favorite social event EVER.
