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 bug-eyed storytellers as they drop jaws over their most suprising moments:
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Bare!)
Damian Bellino (My High School Boyfriend Was Gay)
Tara Clancy (Channel Rat)
Kelli Dunham (Queer Memoir)
David Smithyman (We’re Nice People)
Musical guest Molly Ruth
. . . and you! You’ve got stories of times you had the rug pulled out from under you. Or maybe you did the rug pulling? 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.
