Dixie De La Tour and Bawdy Storytelling - the Nation's premier sexy, smutty, smart salon - have been hard at it for almost 9 years... and we're returning to Los Angeles! Bawdy’s award-winning take on sex and storytelling has made it not only a "don't miss" event, but it serves as a gathering of the bold, the beautiful, and (if our fan mail is to be believed) an awesome first date destination. And this time, the show falls on Valentine's Day!
Each Bawdy event is a wonderful and unique snowflake in that we’ll have a mix of Bawdy regulars and local LA talent getting up on stage and tell stories of love, lust, and making you feel funny in your bathing suit area. These aren't professionals, and they 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.
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!

She also leads storytelling workshops where would be storytellers can hone their craft (while arousing their audience).In her spare time, Dixie can be found causing trouble in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Oakland, New York, Seattle, Portland, San Diego and any other major city where literate perverts gather to tell dirty stories.
