“Do, or do not. There is no try.” Remember when you were a kid and your mother insisted you try everything at least once before determining that you didn’t like it? We think Yoda – and your Mom – were probably TrySexuals; always game to experience something new and unexplored, ready to greet every puppy pile with a can-do attitude.


This month in LA, Bawdy Storytelling (where we measure success by the mouthful) presents 3 sexually adventurous storytellers who’ll share how they embraced this philosophical stance & adopted it as the credo for their sex life. & after substantial oral inspiration, we’ll kick off BawdySlam, where you get onstage to share your own true-ly TrySexual story. Put on your best assless chaps & come spend your hump day with Bawdy. After all, you’ll never know how fun we are – until you try!


Performer Bios:


- Sandra Daugherty punches sexual shame in the face. The sex educator is a firm believer in the right to healthy intimate experiences and the skills that get us there. Sandra is known the world over for her podcast, “Sex Nerd Sandra.” At once irreverent and educational, the show has earned a top spot on iTunes. Its loyal listenership (over 6 million downloads) is vocal about Sandra’s impact, describing her as “inspiring” with “contagious enthusiasm” and an “awesome nerd-like ability that [she’s] not afraid to show.” Her weekly podcast has run since 2011 under the Nerdist Industries banner with no end in sight. Her background in cultural anthropology, philosophy and broadcast journalism provide crucial lenses through which she views her work. Sandra has completed the comprehensive sex educator training program provided by San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI), attends professional conferences and workshops regularly and devours literature on all related topics with retention equal to her curiosity. Brimming with book smarts and street smarts, Sandra is passionately committed to creating a safe space for each person’s unique intimate needs. Her methods include heavy doses of physical comedy, playful insight and surprising disclosure.


- Gram Ponante has been America’s Beloved Porn Journalist for most of this century, providing much-needed insight on the adult industry in the San Fernando Valley—the region’s greatest natural resource—at GramPonante.com, Fleshbot, Hustler, and dozens of classy magazines for Gentlemen and discerning Ladies.

A note from the TV show ‘Sex Sent Me to the ER‘:
-This month’s Bawdy Storytelling’s Los Angeles, event is “TrySexual” and the theme goes hand in hand with some of the adventurous tales we’ve been hearing as a part of TLC’s Sex Sent Me to the ER’s casting team. Members from the casting team will be attending this month’s event and cannot wait to hear your stories about trying new things sexually, whether they have succeeded or not!
From the producers of Untold Stories of the ER, comes Sex Sent Me to the ER. We’re looking for fun, real-life couples (dating, married, or broken up) who have had a bizarre or hilarious medical mishap that sent them swinging through the doors of the emergency room.
