Performer Bios:

❤ Sexual Folklorist Dixie De La Tour founded Bawdy Storytelling - the Nation’s original sex and storytelling series -a decade ago, despite being told repeatedly that nobody would get onstage to tell their stories of sex, kink and gender (Wrong!).This multi-city live storytelling event welcomes true stories from any and all communities (LGBTQIA, kink, polyamory, swingers, vanilla, and many more) and is bringing sex-positive storytelling to new cities all the time. Dixie and Bawdy Storytelling have been praised by press both big and small; She has been lauded as a "masterful emcee, and her show is everything that works for storytelling—she creates a warm, safe space in which stories can bloom with dark hilarity, salacious textures, and moments of deep connection.” Dixie has hosted and curated Bawdy Storytelling events at Yale Sex Week, the Bondage Awards, the Jewish Community Center of San Francicso, CatalystCon Sexuality Conference, Dark Odyssey, FetFest, and more, as well as her home turf of the Bawdy Mainstage and BawdySlam shows. She can be found at @Bawdy on Twitter, Bawdy Storytelling on Facebook and always, always at

Bawdy Storytelling


Storytelling is about building a connection. So is sex.

For the past almost-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 premier sexual folklorist. Once called “a stiff shot of courage in a push-up bra”, she is passionate about storytelling’s power to connect strangers. 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.
