We’ve invited out all-star line-up to tell us sexy story … or an attempt at sexy that went off the rails. A story set in summertime or somewhere equally hot. A tale someone or something that they love, desire, or lust after. We know you love hearing about female desire —bring your libido as your plus one as you join us this July for a steamy night of hot and heavy multi-generational storytelling.
