“The 2014 plan was a simple one, I would “Casanova” myself around our nation's capital looking for consenting heterosexual adult males. One no-frills lover-man for every month. I was the original calendar girl. Helen Mirren plays me in the film.”

In 2014 Katie was very sexually active. She was also extremely depressed. Join her as she examines whether the two things are connected.

A storytelling show with songs about sex, stigma and cystitis.
