"Between-the-sheets tales that run the gamut from poignant and heartbreaking to hysterical and in-your-face shocking"
—Austin Monthly Magazine
Sex: (almost) everybody does it and (almost) nobody talks about it—except at BedPost Confessions, a live storytelling series based in Austin, Texas. Whether the performers are funny, informative, political, or completely personal, the anonymous confessions from the audience are the stars of every show.

"This is a church. Here we worship humanity, passion, and sexuality in any of its myriad forms."
Selected from the live shows each podcast features one storyteller bookended with anonymous confessions from the audience that were read (and often commented upon) during the evening. All BedPost Productions are made accessible to deaf audience members by the fantastic interpreters from SOULumination. Though the interpreters are there to serve the deaf, they enthrall the entire audience with the beautiful expressiveness of American Sign Language. If you hear a roar of laughter and don't understand why, the interpreter may have stolen the show for a minute.
"Austin has it all, and Bedpost Confessions brings it all together for a funny and educational night about sex, sensuality, and human nature."
