Carol Queen is a writer, speaker, educator and activist with a
doctorate in sexology. First as an organizer in the lesbian/gay
community, where she helped found one of the first gay youth groups in
the United States, and later in the emerging international bisexual
community, as a sex worker and a practitioner of alternative
sexualities, she typically teaches and writes from her own experience
and that of her communities even as she references academic thought on
these subjects. Carol Queen's work has been published in many
periodicals and has been widely anthologized, and she has several
books in print.
Nina Hartley, R.N., has been a sex educator, porn performer, pleasure
activist and an advocate for personal responsibility for over twenty
years. Her recent book, "Nina Hartley's Guide to Total Sex," is the
perfect complement to her best selling sex-ed videos from Adam & Eve.
This award winning series has over thirty installments, with two more
being released this year. A third-generation feminist, Nina sees
first hand the damage done when politicians and citizens seek to
stifle sexual speech and punish those who create, and consume, it.
Though she is appalled by the unholy alliance between the right- and
"leftwing" anti-porn cultists, she is nevertheless heartened by the
many young women and men who refuse to let themselves be shamed for
having human desires and seeking to act upon them in an ethical
manner. -Ms. Hartley lives in Los Angeles with her husband, I.S. Levine.
