BedPost Confessions: Rapture (Two Nights!) (SI) Wednesday October 18 at 8 PM, Thursday October 19 at 11 PM The North Door - 501 Brushy St, Austin, Texas 78702

Sex: (almost) everybody does it and (almost) nobody talks about it—except at Bedpost Confessions, a live storytelling show. Stories told at BedPost Confessions explore themes of sexuality, gender identity, dating, marriage, masturbation, break-ups, health, and more. Whether the performers are funny, informative, fictional, thoughtful, embarrassing, raunchy, heart-warming, political, or completely personal, the audience receives their stories with love and returns the favor by sharing their own. In fact, the anonymous confessions submitted by the audience and read aloud by the producers are the real star of every show. We aim for each BedPost Confessions to either spark a fantasy or start a conversation. Maybe even both.

October's performers are:
☆ Newbie & Naughty Bits co-host Katie Stone ☆ Poet Jacob Dodson
☆ BedPost veteran Nikki DaVaughn
☆ Entertainment by Rapt Aerial Dance
☆ Emceed by Mia Martina & Sadie Smythe ☆ Music Stylings by DJ KidGorilla
☆ Giveaways by Adult Video Megaplex Package Menswear ☆ Interpreted for the deaf by SOULumination ☆ Lounge opens at 6:30, Doors 7:15, Show 8:00 ☆ Same show - two nights in a row!
