The erotic-literature genius, visionary of enlightened sexuality, sex-positive feminist, author, and all-around amazing person Susie Bright is taking your questions over in Questionland until May 24. She's in town for her new memoir Big Sex Little Death—a look at her family's history as well as her own life, including her years as a teenage labor revolutionary/sexpot and her later co-founding of On Our Backs, the first erotic magazine created by women. (The latter stuff is obviously the sexy stuff, but the sections about her family are as sensitive, insightful, and beautifully written as any memoir ever.)
She's also doing a sex-positive parenting workshop at Babeland on Sunday, which the parents among you should go to unless you want your children to be neurotic messes and your own sex life to be ruined, except more POSITIVE than that—she'll explain. Ask her over here!
Full disclosure: A million years ago, I was Susie Bright's personal assistant in San Francisco. The second time I showed up to work in her basement home office, we talked for a bit about answering some email and so forth, and she went away and then came back downstairs wearing only a red angora sweater. I acted as if that was perfectly normal, and we had a marvelous working relationship, and we remain fast friends. I love Susie Bright.
