Real Live Nude Girl: Chronicles of Sex-Positive Culture

Real Live Nude Girl: Chronicles of Sex-Positive Culture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Real Live Nude Girl: Chronicles of Sex-Positive Culture is Carol Queen's long-awaited collected writings on sex. Whether chronicling the joys of being turned over her lover's knee and spanked into erotic bliss, performing in a red-light district peep show, partaking of the pleasures of the new safe-sex clubs, or attending a California Men's Movement gathering to lobby for the pro-pornography platform, Queen is personal, insightful, and delightfully candid. A trained sexologist, Queen rejects the antiseptic safety of academic distance, favoring explicit, descriptive writing about sex.

Writing about the new generation of "sexperts", Ms. magazine profiled Carol Queen along with Isadora Alman, Susie Bright, and Carole Vance: "In the old days, experts on sexuality tended to be Ph.D.s who handed down advice in the cool, passionless voice of the academy. Today there is a new breed of advice-givers. These 'sexperts' practice what they preach; frankly describe their own preferences, problems, politics, triumphs, and disasters; and analyze as they go".

"It's apparent to anyone who reads Carol Queen's work that she combines a powerful intellectual persona and an astonishing sexual persona in everything she writes". — The Spectator

Includes bibliographical references (p. 209-212) and index.
