About Bawdy Storytelling:

Bawdy Storytelling - the Original Sex + Storytelling series - features Real People & Rockstars sharing their Bona Fide Sexual Exploits Live Onstage; think of us as a One Night Stand with the Moth & Savage Love. Storytellers are an eclectic mix of Authors, Porn Stars, Sex Educators, Comics & More, along with Regular Joes just like you who submitted their stories online and were chosen for their panache and sense of (Mis)Adventure.

Bawdy Storytelling features tales of Carnal Wins & Epic Fails with No Scripts, No Nets, and No Holds Barred. These folks aren't reading from cue cards: this is honest-to-badness story time with true sexcapades and poignant, transformational tales at each and every show. Join Sexual Folklorist Dixie De La Tour & hand-picked Rockstars as they share their own stories of Love, Lust, and making you feel funny in your bathing suit area. Hey, you may even go home with a few new tricks for your boudoir arsenal!

A REVIEW of Bawdy Storytelling : "Stories are powerful. No other medium has the ability to move, inspire, or change us quite like a well-crafted narrative. Never has this been more true than the world of sex, where fear, shame, and misinformation abound. This is all a high-minded and roundabout way of telling you to check out Thursday's edition of Bawdy Storytelling, a rousing and arousing night of true sex stories that promises to make you laugh, make you think, and make you hard ... pressed to find a more interesting thing to do on a Thursday night." - SF Weekly

Performer Bios:

Dixie De La Tour is a sexual folklorist, storyteller, entrepreneur, podcaster, teacher, catalyst, storytelling coach, community builder, facilitator, & instigator (& that’s just for starters). She is also the founder, curator & host of the award-winning sex and storytelling series, Bawdy Storytelling, that’s now headed into year 12 (“The original sex and storytelling series” – Playgirl, “The Moth for Pervs” – LA Weekly)

Called “a stiff shot of courage in a push-up bra”, Dixie is passionate about the art of storytelling and its ability reduce social anxiety and connect strangers. A former dating site community manager, this story-loving southerner founded Bawdy Storytelling (Real People & Rockstars sharing their Bona Fide Sexual Exploits Live Onstage). Monthly in San Francisco and Seattle and touring nationally, Bawdy Storytelling features tales of Carnal Wins & Epic Fails with No Scripts, No Nets, and No Holds Barred - at Bawdy, folks aren't reading from cue cards: this is honest-to-badness story time with true sexcapades and poignant, transformational tales at each and every show.

Dixie has been Sainted by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (“Saint Kiss & Make You Tell”), and is also the host and curator of Bona Fide storytelling and BawdySlam story slam. Her true stories can been heard on the Risk! podcast and her own award-winning Bawdy Storytelling podcast (Best Sex Podcast from Marie Claire, Uproxx and Esquire Magazine, plus Bustle voted Bawdy a “Sexy Date Idea for a Long Term Relationship”). You can follow Dixie’s antics at @Bawdy, at facebook.com/DixieDeLaTour & she’s always at www.BawdyStorytelling.com

April Kidwell is the producer, writer and star of I, Nomi (returning to Oasis Nightclub SF January 3rd, 4th & 5th 2019.) After years of performing as Elizabeth Berkeley characters in the off broadway hit musical parodies Bayside! The Musical! and Showgirls! The Musical! she was brought to the Bay by Peaches Christ to play Nomi and eventually Anna Nicole Smith in various Peaches Christ Productions. She crochets unicorn hoods out of recycled materials and continues to volunteer with Foxhole Homes - building an off the grid community of eco tiny houses (earthships) for homeless veterans. She loves cake farts. www.aprilkidwell.com

Patch O’Furr is a fabulous husky dog! Furries are a subculture for talking animal media and costuming. Patch founded Dogpatch Press, a Furry News site that's like his ideal 1990's zine. It was crazy when his expose of Furry Nazis turned into features in Rolling Stone and Newsweek. Then there was a week when he interviewed Jello Biafra and got petted in Forbes. Patch has been an animator and runs a small business, and his favorite things are street fursuiting and hugs. He supports creators, dreamers, and happy weirdos, and he's almost housebroken by now.

Saren O'Grady lives in Oakland, by way of DC and Milwaukee, so if you like stories about the weather, or road-trips with loved ones gone wrong, she’s your gal. By day, Saren manages Hopscotch, a bomb-ass Oakland restaurant, collecting plenty of material for the stage - and her therapists couch. She’s been a yoga teacher, competitive weightlifter, professional football player, urban farmer, and member of an all-woman Afro-Brazilian Samba-reggae drum band. It’s been about 60% failure, but she believes as long as it makes a good story, it’s all been worth it.

Gayle Roberts is your typical pansexual, polyamorous, switchy, kinky, liberal, woo-woo San Francisco girl, but without tattoos (though she has a few piercings). Her purpose in life is to help connect people together, inspire dreams and nurture greater love in the world. By day she is a fundraiser for social justice, and by night she leads the Trustable Sluts, one of the country's largest private community group for sexually liberated, socially conscious women.

Rachel Lark is a San Francisco based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Her music has been featured on The Savage Lovecast and Salon.com and she tours regularly throughout the U.S. and Europe. She's made waves for her biting political satire, fearless authenticity, and hilarious, raunchy wit. She's been called the "musical muse for the sex-positive revolution" and "in the league of Sondheim and Tim Minchin."

In 2014 she released her debut EP, "I Wouldn't Worry," followed by her first full-length album, "Lark After Dark," and her Christmas album, "Hung For The Holidays." In 2015 she successfully funded a music video and new album through a Kickstarter campaign and released her music video, "Warm, Bloody, and Tender" in August of 2015. The video was featured in several film festivals including Sacramento Horror Film Festival and Cinekink. Her album, Vagenius, was released in October of 2015.

In December, 2016, Lark recorded a studio album at Tiny Telephone Studios with her band, The Damaged Goods. In March 2017 she released "They've Done Studies" followed by a multi-media dramatic live production at DNA Lounge called "Studies Have Shown." She toured the production throughout the U.S. in the summer of 2017 and will be releasing a concert film of the show in 2018. Find out more at RachelLark.com
