We’ll hear about Kinky Salon, her award winning sex culture event, including the ins and outs of how it’s put together… and how that model is being rolled out in other cities to spread the sex culture revolution!With interactive storytelling, silly skits and probing questions, you’ll delve into Polly’s story as an excuse to delve into yours. Face your shame by looking into the eyes of with the Judgmental Tiger! Meet Teddy, Polly’s body positive teddy bear, and Sparkles, her sensitive and magickal unicorn sex toy, and learn how a toilet paper roll feels about being used.
