What’s your pleasure? Do you giggle with glee at the mere thought of its caress, its vibration, its sting? Do you catch yourself doodling images of knots and making lists of the pros and cons of nylon, hemp, and jute … or fantasize about sitting on Santa’s lap (YES PLEASE) so you can ask him for yet another objet d’amour to add to your meticulously curated collection? If you’re ready for an evening of true stories of objectification, fetishization, and quite possibly, mummification, then join us for the very last Bawdy Storytelling of 2012.
On December 6th, six storytellers will drive us to distraction with the instruments of bliss and buzz that hinder their concentration and dominate their thoughts and feelings. Whether it’s a rabbit with 4-settings, a master’s caress or your own true love, come enjoy these objectifying stories of desire, transformation, and a lot of dead batteries. Pets (on leash) encouraged!
PLUS, for one night only : The Bawdy Bazaar, one-stop Holiday shopping for Perverts!
