Editor’s Note: Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in living rooms, backyards and other intimate spaces within the community. Each month, seven storytellers have eight minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on All Things New Orleans and is a biweekly podcast on WWNO.org.
This story was told on September 17th, 2014 on Dupre Street in the Bayou St. John neighborhood of New Orleans. The theme of the evening was ‘Worth The Wait’ and here, Tori ‘Riot’ Mueller tells of turning 21, and deciding it was time to have that first time.
