Want to be featured in my next book?
I’ll be releasing my next book, Everyone Is a Freak: Intimate Confessions About Sexuality, Gender, and Desire in February 2019, and I’d love for you to be a part of it!
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This book will be a compilation of intimate confessions about sexuality, gender, and sexual desire, collected from 100 anonymous contributors of various age groups, genders, locations, and sexual orientations.
Sometimes I get fed up being labeled as “alternative” simply for existing on this earth as a queer woman who is attracted to other women. In my opinion, the LGBTQ+ community is, too often, treated like a container for all things considered sexually “unusual”. And yet, there are infinite sexual variations that exist within the heterosexual community as well. Some people want to cross-dress and be aggressively dominated, while others have odd foot fetishes… it’s just rarely talked about. And straight people don’t tend to label themselves based on what turns them on.
WHAT IS MY MISSION?
My goal with this project is to encourage people to let go of any notion they have of what is “normal” and what is “abnormal” when it comes to gender, sexuality, and sexual desire. I will do this by exposing some of the surprising variations that exist across the spectrums of gender and sexuality, revealing that we are all “alternative” in our own ways. But we are all human, and we are all relatable.
To boot, I want to empower people to be more honest and less afraid. Regardless of who you are or how you identify, we all deserve the opportunity to express our authentic desires without the fear of being judged or ridiculed. I am not suggesting that everyone should behave like animals, seeking to fulfill every sexual desire they have, especially not without the consent of others involved. However, I do think many of us carry with us a lot of unnecessary shame. We repress desires that are rather harmless, denying ourselves (and others) the full experience of who we are.
I WANT YOUR INTIMATE CONFESSIONS AND DIRTY SECRETS!
