Austin’s own Erotic Muse, Whore, and PhD sex educator, Charla Hathaway, takes it off for you in her one-woman show about sex work, Naked at My Age for 2 nights only at The VORTEX.   A grandma’s surprising Sexual Renaissance, fraught with difficult and isolating choices, leads to risk, lust and healing in the Oldest Profession.  Charla, at 70 continues to expand the definition of sex, seducing you with stores from her 20-year pioneering career.  This 'Fairy Godmother of Sex’ makes sex work seem normal and inspires your own adventures.  Charla brings the bananas to the bachelorette party, you just show up.
