Bawdy Storytelling

Midori shares a spectacular personal story at Bawdy - be gentle, it’s her first time! When a mysterious older man begins to ask after her in her small suburban town, nerdy straight A exchange student (and Jane Austin reader) Midori sees an opportunity to escape the overeager teenage boys at her high school, a chance to engage in the fine art of courtship - but just who’s wooing who? She savors long talks over tea with suave dresser Donald at the only espresso-serving cafe in town - conversations about Poetry, Opera, Jazz, Travel, and Mozart - and soon, she crafts her plan. With the help of her 2 best girlfriends, a pair of hand-sewn fishnet stockings and a trip to Planned Parenthood, the night of her sexual rite of adulthood is finally here…um, why do they call it ‘Virginity’ anyway? #Graduation


(Back story on the ‘fucking your head’ comment that Midori makes as she steps up to the microphone: I was wearing a giant Peacock headpiece and a Dark Garden corset for my 12 Year Anniversary shows, and Midori kept cracking egg jokes about the Peacock that I was wearing on my head)
