The Chicago Story Collective presents "Summer Lovin': Stories of Sex, Sweat...and Romance" at Stage 773

The Chicago Story Collective presents "Summer Lovin': Stories of Sex, Sweat...and Romance." Come see the city's top storytellers share totally true tales of awkward divirginizations, carnal pleasure and puppy love punctuated with performances by Chicago's Vaudezilla burlesque troupe. Presenters include Essay Fiesta's Keith Ecker and Alyson Lyon, Story Club's Dana Norris and Stories at the Store's Jen Bosworth.  You'll laugh! You'll cry! In other words, it's just like sex.

As part of the show, the Chicago Story Collective will also be hosting a very special live sex Q&A with TimeOut Chicago's resident sexpert Debby Herbenick. In addition to her work with TimeOut, Debby has appeared on the Tyra Banks Show and written for Men's Health.

With your generous donation, you will help the Collective market and produce their third revue. To date, the group has pulled from their own savings to cover the overhead of production. Additionally, Essay Fiesta, Story Club and Stories at the Store provide monthly entertainment at absolutely no cost to attendees. This is the first time the Collective is actively asking for funding contributions. By supporting the Collective, you are supporting the arts as well as four all-around nice people.

If you wish to buy tickets to the show, you can buy them on the Stage 773 website.
