Confessions of a Boy Toy is finally seeing the light of day, or at least the light of a candle-lit lounge. And I can’t think of a more perfect occasion than a BedPost Confessions event at South By Southwest.
Created by Sadie Smyth, Julie Gillis and Mia Martina, BedPost Confessions is a female-led storytelling series focusing on sex-positive escapades.
For their very special South By BedPost, we are taking over Butterfly Bar in Austin on Saturday, March 8 starting at 9pm. If you’re in the area for SXSW, come hang out with some stellar storytellers and be the first to listen to the opening chapter of Confessions of a Boy Toy, a gay sci-fi fantasy novel about a young cyborg searching for true love in hyper-modern San Francisco who discovers his self-worth after embarking on a passionate and dangerous affair with a wealthy entrepreneur.
Other storytellers include rapper and performer Ejede, Princess Kali (founder of Kink Academy), Sabrina Morgan (sex workers’ rights advocate), Stirling Gardner (author of An Open Apology to All My ExGirlfriends) and Sadie herself! All this and a sexy DJ set by Kid Gorilla.
Audience members have called BedPost Confessions a church worshipping, “humanity and passion, and sexuality in any of its myriad forms, and beauty, vaginas, penii, and most importantly openness and fearless intimacy!”
Throughout the night co-creator and emcee Julie will be reading anonymous confessions submitted by the audience. Told you it’s the perfect occasion for a first reading of my upcoming novel. Hope to see you there!
