Our story this week: Melanie Hamlett was a gung-ho feminist out to pave the way for strong women everywhere, but a crippling handicap in the icy heart of the Wyoming Winter forced her latent sexual confusion to the surface in a season of self-shaming, lazy date rapists, and masturbating at the public pool.
Melanie Hamlett is a comedian, storyteller, world traveler , and two-time Moth storyslam winner who has contributed to Marie Claire, Nerve.com, and the great travel book Leave the Lipstick, Take the Iguana. You can catch her performing in Adventures with Melanie Hamlett at the Under St. Marks Theater in New York on the 3rd monday of every month at 7pm, and at melaniehamlett.com.
