Inside a warm and beautifully decorated West Philly rowhome, the subject of LUST was the focus of the 17th Story Shuffle. Perhaps unsurprisingly, though 15 people were there and nearly that many told stories, only a handful were willing to have them recorded.

The snacks and Lust punch were delightful. Until next time, see the audio here or below.

  1. Boom Boom Cabaret: Christopher Wink
  2. Marisa [no audio]
  3. Cuban lust: Isaiah Thompson
  4. Young mistakes with love: Steve Metzger
