Jean’s mom loved her new boyfriend and was crushed when the two of them broke up. As close as she is to her mother, she can’t bring herself to explain the reason: Jean would have to reveal that she’s a very kinky girl.


Our heroine explores the early childhood hints that she was wired differently and generously shares her bumpy, awkwardly arousing journey towards self-acceptance. Ultimately, mama gets an earful.


Content Warning: Simulated sex, consensual BDSM, strong language, and a sexual assault.

“Franzblau’s monologues possess a certain 50 Shades of Grey steaminess – but with a sophisticated awareness that the attempt to translate sexual longing to a crowd of strangers contains an element of silliness.”

~ Paul Birchall, Stage Raw


Featured on Playboy Radio 


“What makes her stories come alive is Franzblau’s ability to inhabit each of the characters so completely that you really will feel there is more than just one person on the stage.”

~ Shari Barrett, Broadway World


“…strong characterization, clever dialogue and mind-opening honesty. Recommended!”

~ Dr. Carol Queen, Staff Sexologist, Good Vibrations
