Smut Slam

smutslam-photos

Smut Slam is a place where people can be shameless, in the most positive, radical self-acceptance sense of the word. I can't tell you how many first-time Smut Slam attendees I've seen come in shy, bashful, and all "Oh, I don't have any stories."... only to go up on stage by the end of the night.
 - Rachel, Washington DC

Smut Slam is a family—a slamily?—of storytelling events dedicated to real-life, first-person sex stories, created by touring artist and professional potty-mouth Cameryn Moore. Cameryn's first Smut Slam—the original dirty-storytelling open mic—took place in Boston in February 2011. Since then, this exciting, engaging, and occasionally awkward storytelling experience has happened all over North America and, in 2015, in the UK as well.

In 2016, Smut Slam spread fast, with nine locations around North America going monthly and multiple one-off shows. Since January 2017, Cameryn has been hosting additional slams in the UK, as well as special Cabaret editions for Fringes and one-off slams for non-circuit cities. Smut Slam hosts are all exceptionally talented and sex-positive emcees and performers in their own right; under Cameryn's coaching, these hosts all work toward the same Smut Slam goal: to facilitate an encouraging, fun, open space where audiences of all types and amounts of sexual experience can share their own stories.

I get a bit uncomfortable in public situations involving strangers discussing their sexual experiences, yet I’ve seen Smut Slam in NYC and Edinburgh on several occasions. Why? Because it’s a safe space for both performers and audience members. Because it’s sexy and funny. Because the hosts are a pure joy. I’ve been entertained, intrigued, and mostly enlightened at this show every time. The various stories I’ve experienced at Smut Slam are deep down just stories about the human condition. This show brings humans together in a way that many storytelling shows don’t even come close to. I will be going again. Or is it “coming again”?
