UPDATE REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS: Our live events has are cancelled to help with the prevention of the coronavirus spread. We’ll be back on stage when social distancing restrictions are lifted, but in the meantime, we’re bringing your smut to you online! Check back with our calendar for virtual DC Slams as we schedule them, and follow Smut Slam International on Facebook for other international virtual slams to enjoy in the next few weeks while we’re all hunkering down and practicing responsible social distancing!
Smut Slam DC is a monthly storytelling open mic at The Brixton on the U Street corridor, where audience members sign up to tell 5-minute, real-life, first-person sex stories. A panel of local celebrity judges awards prizes for exceptional storytelling moxie, and in between stories, the hosts read anonymous questions and confessions submitted by the audience to the Fuckbucket. (So, it’s your basic wholesome family night out.) Smut Slam DC is queer-friendly, kink-friendly, fat-friendly, poly-friendly, and really just friendly! Smut Slam DC is a franchise of Smut Slam International, created by Cameryn Moore. Diva Darling is the producer and host of Smut Slam DC.

Who says all the wrongs don’t make a right? All those delicious no-no’s, at the right moment, can become an “oh GOD yes”– and we need to hear about it! Let’s melt our routers in the summer heat with stories about our most shamelessly illicit romps…you naughty little pervs.
(Not familiar with Smut Slam? It’s a storytelling open mic where audience members sign up for 5-minute slots to tell their best real-life, first-person, consensual sex stories. It’s queer-friendly, kink-friendly, lifestyle-friendly, body-positive, sex-positive, and wildly fun. No costumes, no notes, no gimmicks, just straight-up raw truth! And who says social distancing can’t be sexy? The hosts of Smut Slam International have teamed up to create a totally-online format to carry us through until we can safely be in live venues again.)
This month, our theme is “Sweetest Taboo”, where we’re all about that forbidden fruit and juice that’s worth the squeeze. So many things in our society are considered shocking and depraved– but are they? Scratch the surface, and our desires are almost always more deviant than we’re supposed to admit. Let’s get subversive and talk about our kinks, our fetishes, our uniquely weird erotic fixations, and the way they make us feel alive and real. NOTE: We’re going to be especially vigilant this month about making sure stories stick to our Code of Conduct when it comes to trigger warnings/content notes, enthusiastic consensuality, and full adulthood, and we WILL shut down stories about “taboos” that are really violations of anyone’s agency and wellbeing. DON’T TEST ME.
Join me, Smut Slam DC producer and femme-cee Diva Darling, for an evening of deliciously smutty stories told by YOU. For our storytelling prizewinners, we’ve got gorgeous sex toy prizes courtesy of sponsors Austin Travis Woodworking, Lotus Blooms, Glyde Condoms, and Uberlube, with a door prize courtesy of sponsor Njoy Toys. I’ll be joined by a panel of celebrity judges who love to hear dirty little secrets.
We’ll also, as always, have the Fuckbucket where audience members can write in their anonymous sexy questions and confessions. Want to play? Submit a NEW question or confession in the virtual Fuckbucket and I’ll be reading them aloud and answering your burning sex questions.
Plus, from 7:30-8 PM, the room will be open for the Smut Slam Lounge, where we’ll meet and mingle and enjoy some sexy games and icebreakers– and of course, you can play or just watch!
All the usual rules for participation apply– just because we’re online, doesn’t mean we’re not creating safe and inclusive space! I won’t be reading any Fuckbucket entries that are racist, ageist, body-shaming, homophobic, transphobic, kink-shaming, non-consensual, or that in any other way violate the Rules of the Road. Storytellers must also follow the house rules, and our live chat will be moderated to ensure no one violates safe space or abuses their chat privileges.
This show is produced as part of of Smut Slam DC’s partnership with the Joy Platform, Joie de Vivre‘s queer-centric, adult-event-inclusive virtual event platform. It’s totally private, has no recording function, and is rapidly growing into the premier provider of virtual event space for a dazzling variety of sex-positive and queer events including dance parties and naked poetry. Check out their calendar for the full schedule. After you register, you’ll receive an email with instructions about how to log into the Joy Platform– all you need is an internet browser and a microphone (if you want to tell a story). Cameras optional!
