Performer Bios:

Dixie De La Tour is a sexual folklorist, professional storyteller, podcaster, teacher, coach, community builder and most of all, a facilitator. She is also the Founder, Curator & Host of the Award-winning and NSFW storytelling series, Bawdy Storytelling (“The Moth for Pervs” - LA Weekly, “The Original Sex and Storytelling series” - Playgirl) that’s been lauded for its transformational, relatable, empowering performances. This live stage series is currently headed into its 13th year, the groundbreaking Bawdy Storytelling podcast has had over 1.5 million downloads, plus it’s been acknowledged as a ‘Best Of’ Sex podcast from Forbes, GQ Magazine, Marie Claire, Uproxx,Daily Mail UK, Bustle and (twice!) by Esquire Magazine.


In addition to story and public speaking coaching for her own series, Dixie coaches for TEDx, Women in Technology, offers custom Brand Storytelling coaching, has led storytelling events in Libraries, teaches Storytelling for the Classroom  and has been a featured teller for the National Storytelling Conference. Ultimately, this story-loving southerner is passionate about storytelling’s ability to keep people safe, reduce our social anxiety and connect us with strangers. Stories help you find your people!


Dixie has been Sainted by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (“Saint Kiss & Make You Tell”) for her work to reduce stigma and eliminate shame, and she recently became a Muppet. Discover more about Dixie De La Tour and Bawdy Storytelling at, on Instagram at on Twitter at @Bawdy and always at

❤  Christopher Ryan and his work have been featured just about everywhere, including Netflix, HBO, MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, NPR, The New York Times, The Times of London, Playboy, The Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, and The Atlantic. Chris has been a featured speaker at TED, SXSW, The Festival of Dangerous Ideas at the Sydney Opera House, and the Einstein Forum in Pottsdam, Germany. He’s also provided expert testimony in a Canadian constitutional hearing and appeared in dozens of documentary films and television shows. In 2017, Chris received the prestigious AVN award in the category of Best Non-Sex Performance.


Even before co-authoring the New York Times best-seller, Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What it Means for Modern Relationships (translated into 18 languages), with Cacilda Jethá, MD, Chris was on a wild ride. After receiving a BA in English and American literature in 1984 he spent the next two decades traveling around the world, pausing in unexpected places to work at decidedly odd jobs (e.g., gutting salmon in Alaska, teaching English to prostitutes in Bangkok and self-defense to land-reform activists in Mexico, managing commercial real-estate in New York’s Diamond District, helping Spanish physicians translate and publish their research). In his mid-30s, Chris decided to pursue doctoral studies in Psychology at Saybrook Graduate School, in San Francisco, CA, using his dissertation to critique mainstream views of human sexual evolution — providing the core arguments later advanced in Sex at Dawn.


Chris’s next book, Civilized to Death: The Price of Progress (Avid Reader Press, October 1st, 2019), questions whether civilization has actually been beneficial to our species. He hosts a weekly podcast, Tangentially Speaking, often recorded from the road, while traveling in his van, Scarlett Jovansson. The podcast features conversations with famous comics, bank robbers, drug smugglers, porn stars, authors, and rattlesnake experts. Find out more at

She is the editor of 25 anthologies and author of eight books, including Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships and her latest, The Feminist Porn Book.

Bawdy Storytelling


Storytelling is about building a connection. So is sex.

For over 12 years, Bawdy has featured true stories of sex, kink, body image, gender and more to build community and bring people together. We do regular live storytelling events in two cities, but that's just one way to enjoy Bawdy. Our podcast and YouTube channel are great ways to get your Bawdy fix, too.

Our live events feature an eclectic mix of authors, poets, comedians and actors – along with real people just like you - sharing their adventures in ten minutes or less, with no notes. This is honest-to-badness story time with true sexcapades and poignant, transformational tales at each and every show. Storytellers submit their material online and are chosen for their panache and sense of (mis)adventure. Dixie curates submitted stories, then works with experienced and first-time storytellers to create a one-of-a-kind evening for each and every Bawdy. Her coaching superpowers tease 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 (like the ever-popular Bang-O) and you have a show that’ll be your new favorite social event EVER.

Come see what LA Weekly calls "The Moth for pervs" and meet new, open-minded people. Before you know it, you'll be wanting to share your stories, too.


Dixie is America's Sexual Folklorist. She is passionate about storytelling’s power to connect strangers, to teach us through story, and to foster compassion and empathy.. In addition to being the founder, curator, and host of the long-running Bawdy Storytelling series, Dixie is also an accomplished storytelling coach and offers workshops for anyone who wants to communicate better and inspire others, no matter what the subject matter. As a storyteller, Dixie’s own stories can been heard on the Risk! podcast and her own Bawdy Storytelling podcast. She is based in San Francisco and hosts live shows across the United States.
