Do you require scientific validation of your desire? Author, Speaker, Podcaster and Consent Advocate Jaclyn Friedman wants to study her orgasm, but she’s getting first date jitters. What is sexual concordance, and why is it so difficult for this overachiever to get it up when someone is studying their sex data? Plus Bawdy’s musical muse, Rachel Lark, performs a song she wrote especially for our Nerdgasm show. Lube up, cause knowledge has never been so arousing! #OrgasmDenial #IcebergClit #Fencesitter
Hosted by Sexual Folklorist Dixie De La Tour
Opening Music: 8 Miles Wide by Storm Large

Bawdy Storytelling – dubbed ‘The Moth for pervs’ by the LA Weekly – is the nation’s original sex and storytelling series. Founded, emcee’ed and curated by sexual folklorist Dixie De La Tour, Bawdy Storytelling features real people and rockstars sharing their bona fide sexual exploits. Bawdy Storytelling’s one-of-a-kind approach to sex-positive personal narrative has coaxed liberating tales out of everyday people, creating unforgettable experiences for performers and audiences alike. These stories aren’t memorized. Storytellers aren’t reading from cue cards. This is honest-to-badness story time with true sexcapades and poignant, hilarious, transformational tales at each and every show.
