Told live on stage at Bawdy Storytelling‘s 15-year Anniversary event, Educator, Artist, and Rope Dojo founder Midori takes us on a bifurcated journey from flying warriors in a Shaolin Temple to an all-Male Shibari gathering in a Tokyo Swinger’s Club.
Should you hide who you are so that male-dominated society isn’t threatened – or is it time to flip the script?

For almost 13 years now, Bawdy has featured true stories of sex, kink, body image, gender and more to build community, educate, entertain, and bring people together. We do regular live storytelling events in multiple cities, but there are plenty of ways to get Bawdy: Our Podcast and YouTube channel are fantastic ways to get your Bawdy fix, wherever you are.
Storytelling is about building a connection… So is Sex.
Our live events feature an eclectic mix of authors, poets, comedians, and actors – along with real people just like you – sharing their (true) adventures in around ten minutes or less. Storytellers submit their material online for this curated show, and each month’s performers are chosen for their panache and sense of (mis)adventure.
Sexual folklorist Dixie De La Tour curates submitted stories, then works with experienced and first-time storytellers to create a one-of-a-kind evening for each and every Bawdy. Her coaching superpowers tease out surprisingly powerful stories of sex, kink or gender. Then at showtime, Dixie coaches the audience, too – creating an emotionally supportive, unintimidating, and sex-positive atmosphere that’s unique, engaging, and fun. Add connecting games (like the ever-popular Bang-O) and you have a show that’ll be your new favorite social event EVER.
