About The Event

Stand Up Smut began in a tiny kava bar in Portland Oregon in the spring of 2018. The idea was to have a space to share material that might not be welcome elsewhere - the invitation was for material of a sexual nature, an erotic flavor.  That first month a crowd of 40-50 strangers squished into a space that comfortably seats a dozen, and by the end of the night, it had become a tradition.  The shares were personal, hilarious, heart breaking, and sometimes super hot.  (Kava is a beverage made from a root, that tastes like mud but settles the nervous system, and some say is an aphrodisiac).  

The event evolved over the past two years - we’ve had storytellers, poets, writers, musicians, actors - scenes even! We added audience participation in the form of haikus. Every time we gathered was an incredible, amazing journey of intimacy.

In March of 2020, Stand Up Smut went online, and we tried to figure out how to find that intimacy on zoom.  Over the past couple of months - we’ve discovered new possibilities.  For one - people can join us from all over the world.  While we do keep the password private (you have to ask for it if you don’t already know) it is open to the public. We’ve had visitors from India, New Zealand, Canada, England - it’s been delightful to meet sex-positive comrades from all over the world. We’ve started doing break-out meet and greets after the shares for those who want to stay and visit. Last month we started featuring visual artists who shared their art via screen share, which added a new kind of richness to the stew.   

The invitation is always to show up with love and respect for one another as sovereign sexual beings, and that has continued even as we have gone digital.  We establish boundaries around no screen sharing or recording, and making the space as safe as we are able.

This month we are featuring primarily the erotic artistry from people who identify as LGBTQIA, BIPOC or ANTIFA.  Shares are in the form of stories, poetry, songs, monologues - you name it, we wanna celebrate you.  We also welcome visual art - still images, drawings, paintings, video.

All artists are invited to share links to their patreon, paypal, Venmo, etc.   If you would like share something, please contact eleanor@dancenakedproductions.com.

Tonight will be the last Stand Up Smut of the season.  We’re taking summer off to work on a new project (which will be announced at tonight’s gathering!)
