’F*ck Tardis’ (Amy Melin)
Are you all wet and exhausted from Amy's sex swamp? Lavender menace Amy Melin is nicknamed after a famous Las Vegas landmark, but it comes with a bit of chagrin: yes, her orgasms are especially cinematic, but what about all that clean-up?! So when her friend Layla has a birthday, group leader the Queen of Mean pull out all the stops: fancy meal prep in a tiny kitchen, too many nude servers, spankings, a violet wand, the happy duck - Wait, you want me to put that ice cold trailer hitch WHERE?
’A for Academic’ (Jeanette Clarke)
Do you wanna watch me cry in the shower after we have sex? In this vintage story from the Bawdy archives, sex-positive parent Jeanette Clarke returns to school to get her Masters in Sexuality - and her first assignment? To keep a 7 day sex diary, documenting her every tryst, fantasy & sexual interaction. Can this highly competitive student impress the famous instructor - and nail that top grade - by hiring a babysitter and trying to do it all in just one night? #SocialJustice #Fieldwork #PublicSex
’Friendly Neighborhood Dom’ (William Winters)
Did you just throw a bag of dicks at my head?! Polyamorous sex party organizer William Winters takes an erotic humiliation workshop, musing that it’s a great way to add intensity to a kink scene. But when play partner Jana begs him to use these new psychological torture skills on her, he learns that being mean is harder than he thought, and aftercare isn’t just for the submissive. Talk about intense! #Blush #Shudder #Worthless #Unlovable
’Ethical Masturb*tor’ (Luna Malbroux)
Is that a VR headset, or are you just happy to see me? Comic/Writer/Playwright Luna Malbroux is dealing with a divorce during a Pandemic, and Riverdale feels like her only escape from reality. But when Canadian guy Chris shows up to help her new roommate move in, he brings not only pizza but a trunkful of VR equipment - and Luna’s COVID experience is changed forever. Bow Chicka Wow Wow, Get ready for some Science, bitches! (Spoiler alert: there are no Science Bitches, just a newly anointed VR P*rn Broker)
’Double Jeopardy’ (Dane Garfield Wilson)
Was that a hotdog or a gunshot? Underground rave enthusiast & thespian Dane Garfield Wilson wows a sold out Seattle crowd with his tale of rampant hormones & misspent youth in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This story is full of bad ideas; should Dane’s first time at sex happen in a single wide trailer/crackhouse, under the watchful eye of Alex Trebek and a pair of chubby twins? Or down by the cemetery, in a Buick Regal? Plus Dixie shares multiple ways to make your upcoming Quarantine Valentine’s Day special.
’What’s up, Pussycat?’ (Christopher Ryan)
Get ready to take notes as Author & Podcaster Christopher Ryan tells us about his first sexual encounter.

At the age of 8, Christopher is too young to join the cocktail party, but he *is* old enough to learn about consent, pleasure and natural urges at a party for… one? This story was told live onstage in Los Angeles during our last tour.
