Is it naive to believe in monogamy? Are humans polyamorous by nature? Dance Naked Productions broaches these questions with Inviting Desire: The Dawn of Sex—a mixed bag of awkward and erotic vignettes covering all the topics you've pondered in the deepest recesses of your mind, and plenty you probably haven't. One of the biggest strengths of the show is how stripped down, sincere, and vulnerable the performers make themselves. Sometimes, though, the performance feels oversexualized or forced; signs in the audience encourage cuddling. For whatever questionable tastes the show reflects, several days later I found myself discussing the show with the guest I brought. In the end, the best part of The Dawn of Sex may just be the conversations that happen afterward. JENNA LECHNER
