About the Author
Dr. Carol Queen is a writer and cultural sexologist with a Ph.D. in human sexuality. She's a noted erotic writer and essayist whose work has appeared in dozens of anthologies and is read in university classes across the US. She’s written three books: the essay collection Real Live Nude Girl: Chronicles of Sex-Positive Culture; the erotic novel The Leather Daddy and the Femme, winner of a Firecracker Alternative Book award for fiction in 1999; and Exhibitionism for the Shy, which explores issues of erotic self-esteem and enhancement. She’s also edited several volumes of erotica and essays. Queen works as Staff Sexologist, Company Historian, and Curator of the Antique Vibrator Museum at Good Vibrations, where she has worked since 1990. She is co-editor of many anthologies including PoMoSexuals which won a Lambda Literary Award in 1998. She has taught in several educational videos as the expert instructor, notably Carol Queen’s Great Vibrations and Bend Over Boyfriend: An Adventurous Couple’s Guide to Male Anal Pleasure, G Marks the Spot: The Good Vibrations Guide to the G-Spot and Female Ejaculation; and the Pleasure-Ed series: Gush (about female ejaculation, G-spot). Her expert advice has been sought in the pages of Glamour, Cosmo, Marie Claire, Men’s Health, Playboy and many other magazines, and she's a frequent commentator for TV programs and documentaries about sex and culture. Carol is the co-founder, with her partner Robert, of the nonprofit Center for Sex & Culture in San Francisco [sexandculture.org]. She has been speaking publicly about sexuality for close to forty years. She co-founded one of the first LGBTQ youth groups in the country in the mid-1970s and served as the first Education Director of the Willamette AIDS Council (Eugene, OR) in the 1980s. Her perspective in addressing sexual diversity incorporates personal experience, accurate sex information, and informed cultural commentary. She has addressed many conferences, including the International Condom Conference, the International Conference on Prostitution, and the International Conference on Pornography; she frequently addresses college as well as general and specialized audiences. In 2009 she traveled to England to debate the question of promiscuity (“Virtue or vice?”) for the Oxford Union at Oxford University. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with two grey cats and her partners Robert Morgan Lawrence and Dina Fayer. For more information see her website: www.carolqueen.com

Top Customer Reviews
The warm tone of the authors and cute illustrations by Amanda Lafrenais make this an easy book to share with partners, family, and friends without fear or reprisal. A history of vibrators, Shar's musings on the future of sex, and a meticulous recommended reading list are great bonuses for sex geeks like myself too! Read it all the way through or skip around as you need and put THE Sex & Pleasure Book up on your shelf - or bedside table! - next to Our Bodies, Ourselves and the Cleis Press Ultimate Guides. Yes, it really is that good and that essential.
The book can answer any question you have made yourself about human sexuality, very inclusive, and based in sex positive.
Never mind your sexual orientation or interests, “The Sex & Pleasure Book” has something for you, with an easy reading and nice illustrations that will leave no doubt left to answer.
I recommend it 100%
