We’ve all done it: awakened with a cringe, worried that our Dirty Little Secret was public knowledge. And when your cloak-and-dagger kink is finally out there, nothing feels better: embracing your inner pervert and letting your freak flag fly feels AWESOME.
Join Bawdy Storytelling – the express train that always goes *downtown* – as we invite sex-positive rockstars to expose themselves in a new and exciting way. We’ll save lots of room for audience secrets, so please consider spilling your own beans (so to speak) if the moment strikes. It’s an evening of real stories from real people with no judgments, lots of laughter, and a communal, undying appreciation for the private made public. Come ON – You know you wanna know!

- Orpheus Black, BDSM/fetish educator, professional Dom, and alternative lifestyle speaker became a household name in the kink community after co-hosting the Severe Society internet radio show on the KSEX network in 2001. Incorporating a wide array of BDSM/fetish ideals, principles and philosophies, Orpheus created his signature D/s style—a holistic, psycho-sensuous approach to dominance. When not performing or educating, he hones his skills in performances at local hotspots including Bar Sinister and Lair de Sade. Hundreds of public performances, educational demonstrations, and private sessions later, Orpheus has become one of Hollywood’s most respected Doms and most innovative fire fetish performance artists. A favorite interviewee and contributor, he has lent his expertise on Playboy’s XM Radio show and Love, Sex and Hip Hop as well as other shows, magazines, and films. He is also a regular presenter at DomConLA and the founder of Cirque de Sade—a high profile Dominants group whose mission is to advance the art of BDSM through a commitment to innovation, excellence, and active leadership in the D/s, Ms and fetish performance art communities. When not teaching, counseling or performing, Orpheus can be found enjoying his 17-year polyfidelitous, polyamorous relationship.
