Our goals include: creating alliances with human-service organizations to provide resources for sex workers, to destigmitize sex workers and the industry while advocating for positive attitudes towards sex workers and their contributions to society, to educate about harm reduction, and to increase awareness of the harm to sex workers and their communities caused by current well-meaning laws and policies. SWOP-Seattle is composed of people who share the desire to extinguish harmful social stigma held against sex workers, and laws that foster intolerance. About Bawdy Storytelling: Bawdy Storytelling – the Original Sex + Storytelling series – has been bringing true personal stories of sex (and sex work!), kink and gender to the stage for over EIGHT YEARS. We feature Real People & Rockstars sharing their Bona Fide Sexual Exploits Live Onstage; think of us as an award-winning One Night Stand with the Moth & Savage Love. Storytellers are an eclectic mix of Authors, Porn Stars, Sex Educators, Comics & More, along with Regular Joes just like you who submitted their true stories online and were chosen for their panache and sense of (Mis)Adventure. Bawdy Storytelling features tales of Carnal Wins & Epic Fails with No Scripts, No Nets, and No Holds Barred. These folks aren’t reading from cue cards: this is honest-to-badness story time with true sexcapades and poignant, transformational tales at each and every show. Join Sexual Folklorist Dixie De La Tour & sex-positive Locals as they share their own stories of Love, Lust, and making you feel funny in your bathing suit area. Hey, you may even go home with a few new tricks for your boudoir arsenal! Performer Bios: - Mistress Matisse is a professional dominatrix, sex worker's rights activist, and writer in Seattle. - Maggie McMuffin earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre and has put that degree to use by getting naked for a variety of audiences. A burlesque performer since 2010 and a stripper since 2012 (as well as dabbling in a multitude of other naked activities both professional and private), Maggie enjoys putting on performances that range from silly to sultry whether at work or around town. Maggie has also contributed writing to Tits and Sass and frequently blogs about her cat on tumblr. - Jae Elle has been a charming distraction and healing companion to the Great Northwest for over a decade. She has made her mark as an award winning playwright, an acclaimed performance artist, an ordained minister, and a birthday clown. From small-town Arizona to The Kennedy Center, Jae’s productions have received accolades from critics and audiences alike. This eudaimonic demimondaine has truly done it all: She has masturbated with mailmen, roped and wrangled in the rodeo, and made balloon animals for Bill Gates. She believes that the world’s biggest problems can ultimately be solved by healing sexual touch…and in that endeavor she hopes to be a lighthouse to others. - The House of Gord's Director of Videography, Kinkster, Hardcore Masochist, Former Fetish Model, Artist and Photographer, Princess Andie is a multi-talented queer woman who has seen and done a lot in the world of sex and work. - Aidan Allgood is a professional houseboy, fetish film performer, bon vivant and all-around good boy. He has been active in the BDSM lifestyle for 8 years, and while relatively new to being a working boy, he already has quite a few stories to tell. - For over a decade, Ms. Savannah Sly has been proudly shaking her money-maker in the face of conformity, shame, or anyone willing to shell out for the privilege. Currently on sabbatical form her trade as a Fantasy Facilitator, Savannah likes to while away the hours by contributing to the Sex Worker Outreach Project of Seattle (SWOP-Seattle.org), helping to build sex worker community and advocating for the rights and fair treatment of those who participate in the adult industry.
