Sexo Entre Mujeres! Girl Sex 101 is coming in Spanish!!!

Buenas noticias! Girl Sex 101 is being translated into Spanish! I’m working with the fabulous Mexican sexologist Lorena Olvera to create a Spanish-language version of Girl Sex 101 titled Sexo Entre Mujeres. I’m fond of that title because “Entre” in this case means both “among” and “between,” so the title is both “Sex Among Women” and “Sex Between Women.”  Perfect! The translation is nearly done, at which point I’ll adjust the layout and update the interior. My goal is to have the book on sale by the end of May. BUT if you want to secure your copy right now, mosey on over to the Store and preorder...

Bad Dyke is Live!

Bad Dyke is Live!

I’m thrilled to announce that finally the Bad Dyke audiobook is alive and ready to order. I learned a whole lot about audio production through this process. It’s tough being a kinesthetic learner sometimes. It takes a lot longer than reading the instructions, and mistakes can take the wind out of my sails. BUT! I’m very happy with the result. Right now, it’s only available through Audible via Amazon, but there’s a free trial if you’re curious about it.  I’m investigating ways of making the file available on my own website, so stay tuned for details on that.  Hope you enjoy!...
10 Things to Know Before Losing Your Girl-ginity

10 Things to Know Before Losing Your Girl-ginity

Having Sex With A Girl For The First Time? Here Are 10 Things You Need To Know About Sleeping With Women So you’re a lady who wants to have sex with a lady. Welcome to the club. Women of all orientations and identities are learning the joys of the activity once reserved for that cool girl in your art class. As the Ruby Roses of the world are proving, attraction doesn’t have to shake up your self-conception or identity. Sometimes, the only earth-shaking you want comes in the form of orgasms. But if you’ve never done it before, sex with a woman can be intimating, confusing, and maybe even scary. What do you do together? Should you bring toys? What about safe sex? Oh my god, what do vaginas even taste like? Most of the sex ed we get in school, if we get any sex ed in school, teaches us how to not get naked, not get pregnant, and not get chlamydia. But it doesn’t teach us how to talk about what we want, find people like us, ask good questions about what feels good, or anything at all about pleasure. If you’re venturing into the warm waters of lady love, you may find everything you thought you knew about sex flying out the bedroom window. Before you take the leap into the wide world of sapphic pleasures, here are 10 things to know, pulled from the pages of Girl Sex 101, my new book all about how ladies can please ladies. 1. You Taste (And Smell) Better Than You Think You Do A lot of ladies are...

Hey, you’re a socially-conscious and generally hip consumer, right?

Race and Curation in Sex Ed

Race and Curation in Sex Ed

Context for readers: This is a response to a conversation in the sex ed community about race and representation in books. I thought responding via the Girl Sex 101 blog would be a good venue for it, since I mention my curation process for the book below.    There’s a furor going around in the sex ed industry because of an anthology of “sex mastery” that only features white folks. I held back from speaking up at first  for a few reasons: 1)      I am resistant to being or feeling like a white-savior, and I’m still not 100% sure how and when it’s appropriate to speak up before a person of color does. If you have thoughts or resources about this specifically, please feel free to share. 2)      My partner was one of the people in the anthology and I wanted to give him a chance to speak up first. 3)      Honestly, I didn’t think the book would get much attention at all, and I saw “all publicity as good publicity” which would make this book more popular. Plenty of books in our industry are so narrow as to be infuriating. I didn’t think they needed a neon arrow directing people to their Amazon page. 4)      I’m currently experiencing Outrage Fatigue. I thought that more white people shouting about how racism is bad wasn’t going to do much of anything other than drown out the voices of POC we should actually be listening to.   However, I now feel compelled to weigh in. Because this issue has gotten bigger than one book, and it involves my industry. As for the...
