My mission is to educate people of all genders and sexual orientations in their pursuit of healthy, empowering, and transformative sex and relationships. I spread my pleasure-positive message through my books, videos, writing, teaching, and lectures. I am a feminist pornographer who makes porn films that are consensual, ethical, and super hot! People often label my movies "porn for women," but they are actually for anyone to enjoy who wants to see spontaneity, performers taking charge of the scenes, chemistry between players, and real female orgasms.

 

Take Me There: Trans and Genderqueer Erotica is my new book from @CleisPress, which will be out in October! You have no idea how excited I am about this book. It has been a passion project for me and it’s finally up on Amazon where you can pre-order it for the ridiculously low price of less than $11. Pre-orders really boost a book’s success and placement on Amazon, so if you could find it in your heart, I would really appreciate it. Here’s the official copy all about it:

 In mainstream media, the erotic identities, sex lives, and fantasies of transgender and genderqueer people are often oversimplified, sensationalized, or invisible. Take Me There is an erotica collection unlike any other that celebrates the pleasure, heat, and diversity of transgender and genderqueer sexualities. The power of seeing and being seen is a central theme in the anthology; it’s not simply about passing or not passing (an idea often explored with transgender characters), but about being acknowledged and desired in a sexual context. The book takes you from San Francisco to Israel, from heartache to lust, from stranger sex to a 10 year anniversary, from ballet shoes to butt plug bondage tables, from fumbling teenagers to leatherclad bears, from MTF and FTM—and in between and beyond. 

Let me add that this book is all about the amazing contributors. Here is the entire list:
