Overview

Whether writing about the joys of being turned over her lover’s knee and spanked into erotic bliss, 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, Carol Queen is personal, insightful, and delightfully candid. This new edition of Real Live Nude Girl includes four new articles and a new introduction by the author. “The thinking person’s sex queen, Carol Queen is a real live brilliant girl.” — Annie Sprinkle

Carol Queen, a trained sexologist, presents her long-awaited collected writings on sex--pieces which reject the antiseptic safety of academic distance, favoring explicit, descriptive wording and imagery. "(Queen) combines a powerful intellectual persona with an astonishing sexual persona in everything she writes."--The Spectator. 200 pp. 11-city author tour.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A columnist for East Bay Express who also writes for a variety of other mainstream and alternative publications, Queen has collected many of her essays on sex in this volume. In fact, sex and the various ways it can be experienced appears to be primary focus in Queen's life, but the quality and interest level of the essays is very uneven. The best include a letter to her mother about her sex choices, one arguing why gynecologists and other physicians need better training on how to talk to patients about and during pelvic exams, and another that gives new insights into spanking as sexual pleasure. Though the essays tell in graphic detail the many ways an individual can be sexual, this book is not meant to be erotic. Its sexual content is primarily explicit, descriptive narrative. Thus, unless the reader is specifically interested in the details of Queen's sex life, the book can be quite boring. Recommended only for Bay Area or large sexual studies collections.Pauline Klein, DeKalb Cty. P.L., Decatur, Ga.
