Presenting a titillating hour of sexual fantasies and phone sex anecdotes, 12 year phone sex veteran Tonya Jone Miller provides an insider's look into the funny, vulnerable, and intimate relationships she forms with her clients.

There's something for everyone in this sexy storytelling hour, and I'm storing that bookstore fantasy away for myself. The suggestive smell of old leather books? Yaas girl!

Audience participation? OK. Don't worry, it's not like that. Based on an audience suggestion, Miller improvises a sex fantasy on the spot. Unsurprisingly at ease with improv, not only is she a trained actor but improvising sexual fantasies is exactly how she makes her living. And yes, tacos can be a turn-on. Crisp lettuce? Spicy beef? Wet salsa? Hilariously hot.

By turns poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, there's not quite enough of an arc to sustain an hour-long show, but Miller is an accomplished storyteller. And because sex.
