Hop on the express train to sexual enlightenment with sex educator and self-avowed whore Dr. Carol Queen. Whether writing about the joys of being spanked into erotic bliss, performing in a red-light district peep show, partaking of the pleasures of the new safe sex clubs, or lobbying for the pro-pornography platform, Queen is an enthusiastic advocate for sexual pleasure.
When she was a kid, Carol Queen was called "Queen the Queer." "Queer" was still very much an insult at the time, not the term of power and pride it has recently become. Similarly, sex was called a bad thing, a nasty thing, even for, perhaps especially for, good girl feminists. Like other sex-positive folks of her generation, Carol Queen is re-evaluating the range and possibilities of sexual experience and identity. This book gathers previously published essays on topics ranging from pelvic exams, pornography law, the men's movement, sex as art, Madonna, and sacred whoredom. Queen is an intelligent, funny writer.From the Back Cover :
"The thinking person's sex queen, Carol Queen is a real live brilliant girl. For people who can't imagine what all the fuss is about sex, this is the book to read." - Annie Sprinkle, Pleasure Activist/Artist I bought my first brassiere in thirteen years. I grew my hair; I wore skirts; I put on lipstick. The white lace that I'd squirreled away for my lover's delectation I began to wear in public. I mixed it with leather. My lovers began to get nervous. I hoped to become so outr that no one would notice, or care, what I did. In the peep show I was privileged to see secret visions of sexual desire and fantasy played out over and over again; I knew I had a front-row seat at one usually-hidden aspect of sexual culture. Besides, the peep show is a microcosm of eroticism, desire, persona, the theatrical ritual of fantasy, and the very same sexual schizophrenia that creates the climate for peep shows in the first place. The peeps are a rich stew, and I want to stir it in public. Feminist performance artist, bisexual activist, educator, and self-avowed whore, Carol Queen is the author of Exhibitionism for the Shy and co-editor of Switch Hitters: Lesbians Write Gay Male Erotica and Gay Men Write Lesbian Erotica. She is a Ph.D. candidate at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality.
