Secrets, Secrets are LOTS of Fun

At last night’s Spilling Your Guts Salon, our three juicy oversharers and host did not disappoint. Waist Nippers were bravely displayed (think Spanx), critics were told to fuck off and many more revelations inspired, touched, and entertained our SRO crowd.


Our audience was invited to share secrets themselves (a la Post Secret), some of which were read aloud during the event. It did not take too much prodding to get our audience jotting down some intimate disclosures – most on the topic of sex and love, unsurprisingly. Knowing that we have some Nosy Nellies in our First Person blog readership, I knew you’d want to get a glimpse.


“I’m 30 and never been in love.”


“I tell him how much he hurt me hoping to hurt him back.”


“I quit dating a guy because he cried after sex. Every time.”


“I invited a friend that I’d always secretly loved and his boyfriend to stay with me. After his boyfriend went to bed, I wound up giving him a blowjob in my kitchen while listening to Stevie Nicks.”


“When you were shitting, I opened your cell phone and read the text messages.”


“I want to learn how to hip-hop dance.”


“I like Miley Cyrus.”


“I think I might be pregnant.”


“I used to think Liz [Spikol] told too much about herself, but now I just think she was ahead of her time.”



Inspired? Have to get something off your chest? Feel free to add some anonymous confessions in the comments section!


Thanks to Emily Gould, Dr. Judith Sills, Liz Spikol, Emily Steinberg and our awesome audience for a great Salon!
