Kickstarting a new book that combines narrative, comics, & practical sex education. 100% funded in 14 days.
Written by Allison Moon, illustrated by kd diamond, and featuring 15 sex experts
September 22, 2013 – Think “Zen and the Art of Vulva Maintenance” or On the Road with an all-female cast and queer-women-focused sex ed.
Author Allison Moon (Tales of the Pack series about lesbian werewolves) collaborates with illustrator kd diamond (Salacious Magazine) to create a sex ed book specifically for lesbians, queer & bisexual women, and those curious about the ins and outs of girl-on-girl sex. Now through October 19, they’re Kickstarting the book to pay all the artists and experts involved in the creation of the book.
Girl Sex 101 features “scenic viewpoints” by over 15 top sex experts including Sex Nerd Sandra, Tristan Taormino, Jiz Lee, Reid Mihalko, Julia Serano, Ignacio Rivera, Kelly Shibari, Sophia St. James, Megan Andelloux, and more.
Based on Moon’s live sex-ed workshop of the same name, Girl Sex 101 shares practical, women- and trans-focused and pleasure-oriented sex education for people of all orientations and experience levels. The book introduces techniques like the Flight of the Navigator for those shy-in-the-sack, the Reverse Vulcan to stimulate the clitoral legs during hand sex, the Rodeo Queen for cunnilingus when she gets a little “too” excited, the Stick Shift for performing pleasurable oral sex on strap-on, plus tips on flirting, consent, and safer sex.
Girl Sex 101 also utilizes social media to make a fresher, more complete book. Using Twitter (@GirlSex101) and Tumblr (girlsex101.tumblr.com), Girl Sex 101 is asking LGBTQ women to share their own opinions on girl sex, like how they identify, how they met their partner(s), and some of their favorite moves to use in bed.
Girl Sex has changed, but few of our sex-ed books have adapted. Girl Sex 101 is sensitive to issues of transgender sex and current on sex toys and current science of female anatomy. This is a hip, smart guidebook for young women that offers frank, useful techniques and tools to give them the confidence to look under the hood and get their hands dirty. The only question is, do you wanna go for a ride?
