If you think your group chat stories contain juicy tales, then perhaps you should check out Sunday Night Sex Talks.
The Los Angeles-based comedy show creates a space for women to share their dirtiest one-night flings and hot messes of modern dating. Labeled various titles, the one that’s stuck is “The Moth meets the Vagina Monologues.”
The show is generally women-only, though they do have occasional co-ed sessions. And then, as creator Jessie Rosen puts it, the show becomes more “The Moth meets HBO’s Real Sex.”
For the first time, though, the show recently had a run in New York, where it featured stories including “a woman who was cheated on by a man who was illiterate,” and “dating a guy after he dated a famous porn star,” as Page Six reported.
“It started as a gathering that I would do with my best girl friends in college,” Rosen told Page Six. “We would recap all the crazy things that had happened Friday and Saturday night.”
Eventually that sparked an idea to turn those wild stories into something larger.
“As I was kind of making my way into the comedy scene and finding a way to have something and a show that I could make my own, I remembered how special those nights were,” Rosen said.
The show also received some national attention when it was featured on ABC’s The Bachelorette this past season. There bachelorette Jojo Fletcher brought 12 of the male contestants to a performance of Sunday Night Sex Talks. The men had to prepare some of their own wild stories to share to the audience.
While that performance was a rather public affair, that’s not the usual vibe at the shows. Instead, the performers tell stories based around a certain theme for each night like “What Lies” and “Risky Business.” Though the stories apparently don’t disappoint, we won’t know: The audience swears to a Vow of Silence before each performance to save the anonymity and reputations of the storytellers.
It’s a classy move. We, however, at The Fresh Toast openly urge you to share all your Hot Messes publically. What’s the harm? Everyone has them.
