"Funny, empowering, and just slightly terrifying all at once"
Hi, I'm Eleanor
I make art about sex.
My goal is to celebrate sex stories, to normalize and encourage sexual expression, to create space for people to feel safe revealing their WHOLE selves. I create fun and playful ways to help people explore their sexuality, to discover their erotic imagination.
So, do we really dance naked? Sometimes! But originally, it was a metaphor.
I called my company Dance Naked Productions because I wanted to make theater about joyful vulnerability, and showing up as our authentic selves.
I changed the name to Dance Naked Creative during the pandemic, because we had grown to represent more than just productions. We were now online events, naked adventures, audio erotica, workshops, retreats, and a hub for other erotic creatives.
I'm so delighted you are here. Please explore the site, maybe check out a few videos. I'd love to see you at Stand Up Smut, the monthly erotic open mic I host on zoom. (And if you're feeling brave - maybe sharing something of your own?)
Maybe I'll see you riding beside me at one of our upcoming Naked Rides?
When the time is right, I'll hug you at the theater, host you in a workshop, or hang out with you on Patreon. I'm excited to share my stories, and help you uncover YOUR erotic genius (everyone's got some - all those centuries of repression has created some artistic gold!). I believe the erotic comes in all flavors - funny, silly, sexy, kinky, and sometimes so profound.
I'm here for all of it and I hope you are too.
While I am based out of Portland, OR I love to travel and take my shows on tour. If you'd like to see me in your city, get in touch! Or join me on zoom for a virtual experience (you don't have to turn your camera on!)
One of the most profound miracles of my life is the invention of Patreon. I now have the support of my friends and fans to be able to create new work and explore new mediums. As a sex-positive creator, with a focus on pleasure, my work does not lend well to grants. I have always dreamed of a large number of small funders, giving what they can comfortably afford. Patreon is that medium and I do most of my most creative, personal, intimate sharing on that site.
But whether you are just stopping by or joining the flock of erotic creatives (and those who love them) over on Patreon, I hope you'll find something here to inspire you. I wanna see what YOU create!
May you feel connected,
may you feel safe,
may you feel pleasure,
may you feel love.
Viva la revulva-lution!
❤️ Eleanor O'Brien
Dance Naked Creative, artistic director
If sex and creativity are often seen by dictators as subversive activities, it's because they lead to the knowledge that you own your own body (and with it your own voice), and that's the most revolutionary insight of all.

What We Do
Started in 2008, Dance Naked’s first show, Inviting Desire, explored women’s sexual fantasies. The company has grown to include performers from across the gender spectrum, and is dedicated to exploring and celebrating all manner of sexual expression.
I offer workshops to all kinds of people, not just performers. The fuel of our erotic imagination isn't limited to "artists." Every human alive has a sexuality. Every human is rich with creative potential. My goal with every workshop I teach is to help you make that connection.
If it's time to share your story, I'm hear to help. I work with erotic creatives to turn their stories into art. Solo show? Memoir? Erotic poetry? I'll help guide you in bringing your visions to life.
