Hey, wanna try out a Gloryhole while the Dragon Lady naps? LGBTQIA sexual health specialist & speaker Frank Strona discovers 1970s-era adult bookstores at age 17 during his first visit to the Sir Francis Drake - and quickly figures out how to get laid multiple times a day, even when traveling with Grandma! This week, we learn about pornographic video arcades, buddy screens, anonymous gay sex, and how to generously tip your doorman. #Cruising #DarkLabyrinth #SweetSpot #GuardTheBeef
Song: ‘Hot Love’ (Leisure)
About the Storyteller:
Frank Strona's vast experience in adult content mediums, LGBTQ culture, sexuality and sexual health, coupled with his long background in public health, offers a unique perspective that lends him true credibility as a navigator of change.
Frank serves as a voice for diversity, inclusion, acceptance and health, he understands the power that being at the table as an out gay man has, and Frank knows how to leverage that power to make change for other LGBTQ folks. A long-time local Bay Area sexual health specialist, he’s been in active pursuit to improve, educate and promote gay/bi/trans men's health and sex for most of his life .
Frank reinforces that “we” ( as in LGBTQ individuals) have to be engaged and active partners of the development of services – and we have to be part of the delivery agents as well. As owner and lead strategic coach for MentorSF.com, he is providing agile and flexible training nationwide on adapting curricula for online learning, blogging, social media and he helps answer the question“How do I tell my story?”

Why are Bawdy’s stories different? Because I have a System! The next ’How to Be Fascinating: Dixie’s Secret System for Brilliant Storytelling’ workshop starts on Tuesday, July 12th (the last few got rave reviews from the attendees, and sold out fast). My aim is to constantly improve this class, so I’ve added weekly office hours, custom story coaching & Q&A, and a final storytelling performance for you and your friends. Remember, this class is a prerequisite for my upcoming Sex and Story and Advanced Storytelling workshops coming out later this year. #YouKnowYouWantThat
