Each month, Spill! brings together storytellers, comedians, sex educators and others to share true tales from their own experiences of sex, desire and romance. With stories as diverse as the people telling them, Spill! opens doors to bedrooms, back seats and dungeons to tell what your mama left out about the birds, bees and in-betweens.

Join our most-wanted storytellers as they tell tales of wanting it:

Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Bare!)

John Kevin Boggs (SpeakEasyDC)

JT Bullock (Storyteller)

Dr. Ruthie (Nice Girl’s Guide to Talking Dirty)

SM Shrake (Story League)

Musical guest Bosley

. . . and you! You’ve got stories about wanting something, or a longing left wanted. Try your luck by putting your name in the hat for a chance to spill all on the Spill! stage.

And still more! One lucky audience member will win Spill!’s sex-toy raffle, courtesy of Babeland.

Bosley

Bosley grew up in Baltimore. His mother is deaf in her right ear. His father is an author. Bosley writes insipid songs. He enjoys this profession and performs at all times with the biggest band he can find so that America still has a place to dance to good music. A few of his songs have been collected and made into albums. His new album, “Honey Pig,” is currently being appreciated by a sparse but industrious group of fans and a small, mid-Atlantic, regional public. He will soon have the best fans in the world, all over the world. He ardently invites you to be one of them.

JT Bullock

Dr. Ruthie

Hailing from Washington, DC, Dr. Ruthie is the author of The Nice Girl’s Guide to Talking Dirty and has been sharing information on intimacy, pleasure, and sex toys at ExploringIntimacy.com since 2008. She splits her time between the academic world and the dark side as a professional sexuality educator with a taste for building community among sex-positive professionals. When she isn’t talking sex she enjoys vegetarian dining, red wine and massages, marathon napping and crochet.

SM Shrake

SM Shrake is the co-founder and leader of Story League, a collaborative group that puts on monthly sold-out story shows and contests in Washington, D.C.
