Testimonials for Dixie's story coaching:

"Dixie De La Tour's coaching is brilliant, and her unique system will absolutely boost your storytelling skills. Whether you are incorporating narrative into your corporate presentations, telling sexy tales at Bawdy or just want to gain confidence in public speaking, you'll definiitely benefit from this workshop!"
- Artist & Globetrotting Educator Midori

“Dixie De La Tour understands stories, full stop. She understands stories because she understands people. Regardless of who you are or what story you're trying to tell you've got to access a scary place in yourself to tell a story truthfully. Dixie knows how to lead you to that place and celebrate with you once you're there. This is aside from the nuts and bolts of structuring a story and putting the right words in the right order, Dixie can do that too, but ultimately she makes your stories come alive because she makes you come alive.”
- Eric Czuleger, Creator of the Howl Podcast, author of Immortal LA and Eternal LA

“Working with Dixie is a rare joy and powerful gift that everyone deserves to experience. I have worked with her to tell both funny and heartbreaking stories on stage, and there is no one else I would rather trust my experience and vulnerability with first before I share it publicly. She has a masterful talent for helping you weave your own raw experiences into a story that can move hundreds strangers to laughter, tears, or both. However, more importantly, she coaches storytellers in a way that can transform the very experience of storytelling into an act of radical self-love and acceptance. We all have stories to tell. Dixie can make yours a legend.”

- Medical Student & Budding Storyteller Ben Colburn

"If you've ever wanted to tell a story but weren't sure how to go about it -- or if you've told a story that got a lukewarm response and you want to tell it again and make it really sing -- I have very simple, surefire advice: Dixie De La Tour. Dixie knows her audience, and she has an innate sense of what about your story will have the most impact. She knows, down in her pores, that it's not so much about the art of storytelling as it is about the heart of storytelling. Yes, she's smart, and funny, and fun to work with, but that just disguises the soul-searching -- one might even say soul-searing -- work she inspires you to do on behalf of your story. By the time Dixie's done with you, it's not just you that's speaking to the audience -- it's your story, your heart, your soul that's doing the talking. And it is a powerful transmutation indeed.
What's more, whenever possible Dixie makes herself available to you to answer questions or give a quick take on another draft to help you feel secure you're on the right track. She's not an aloof guru -- she's an involved partner. I'm hard-pressed to imagine how any story coach could be more impactful, more insightful, and more inspirational than Dixie. She is storytelling's De La Tour de Force.
- Jerry Franklin, solo show performer who's been heard on the Risk! podcast & the Bawdy Storytelling podcast

Your Instructor:

- Over 12 Years ago, storytelling instructor Dixie De La Tour founded Bawdy Storytelling with one idea: To bring people together to tell, share, and delight in each other’s stories. What began in a San Francisco Arts warehouse is now a respected National storytelling event and podcast, and is celebrated as the nation’s premiere sex and storytelling series. Lauded for its inclusivity as much as its celebratory attitude, Bawdy Storytelling's mission is to bring no holds barred storytelling to communities, cities, and countries. Dixie and Bawdy Storytelling have been hailed by press both big and small; She has been praised by master storyteller Mike Daisey as "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 also hosts and curates San Francisco's Bona Fide Storytelling, BawdySlam, and has produced storytelling events at universities and conferences across the nation. 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 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.
