We invite you to put on that porno mustache, polish your fake accent and register as Heywood Jablowme for an evening of fortuitous encounters involving glory holes, holiday flings, and getting your money’s worth in the Champagne Room.

CaliFornicatin’ – East Coasters are jealous of more than just our weather: Californians are hot, smart, and dirty — the fucking Trifecta! But what happens when you tire of yet another beautiful day and your job at the non-profit… do you delve into the underworld of Casual Encounters? Engage in sexting that would make ‘Texts from Last Night’ blush? Perhaps you participate in an independent porn shoot before your reading on sex and gender at the local coffeehouse. Come hear the stories of some of California’s all-star perverts, share some stories of your own, and experience the show that’s taken San Francisco by storm!

Bawdy Storytelling is loadin’ up the bus with perverts and coming to LA for the SoCal take on sexual (mis)adventure. Bawdy Storytelling features real people sharing their bona fide sexual exploits in 10 minutes or less – no scripts, no nets and no holds barred (think of it as one night stand with the Moth & Savage Love). You’ll hear tales of carnal wins, epic fails and maybe even go home with a few new tricks for your boudoir arsenal.
