Bawdy Storytelling

Will someone catch you if you fall? Jenn Griffin’s life has gone from from queer activist to kinky, poly college student to the life of a heteronormative parent - how could this happen? Then one day, Jenn’s Fitbit goes off and leads her to a fanged, tattooed minister in a garden who holds all the answers. Soon, a team of Dungeon dwellers guide Jenn from binkies to BDSM, from mom to master/slave relationship, from nuclear to kink family. Never forget: when a Rockstar offers you the flogger, you can choose to #SayYes #FleshAndBlood
