Bedpost Confessions: Undone! (SI)
Wednesday, Thursday April 18th, 19th, 2018. Doors at 7:15 pm
The North Door, 502 Brushy St, Austin TX 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.

This month we welcome these fabulous performers:
* Simon Studd shares a story about his foray into kink
* Jami Shofner tells us a tale about identity and responsibility
* Felix Morgan's presents her fictional story of being "FulFilled"
* And the hilarious Adam Maurer shares his coming out story

* Emceed by Mia Martina & Sadie Smythe
* Music Stylings provided by DJ Chorizo Funk ?
* Giveaways by Adult Video Megaplex, Package Menswear & MaryJae
* Interpreted for the deaf by SOULumination
* Lounge opens at 6:30, Doors 7:15, Show 8:00
* Same show - two nights in a row!
