Sunday Night Sex Talks is the first & only bi-coastal, no-boys-allowed storytelling series. Each and every month we invite talented female performers to tell R-rated tales of sex, dating, and relationships past and present before an exclusively female audience. Each show features four performers telling ten minute stories on a given sex-themed topic (Unfinished Business, White Lies). Think real life Vagina Monologues.
The result: candid, irreverent, edgy, and sometimes touching stories that are all too true and all too relateable. For more info on past shows and esteemed alum visit sundaynightsextalks.com
