Sex Ed History, Female Ejaculation & The G-Spot w/ Dr. Larwence & Dr.Carol Queen

Continuing my San Francisco journey I visit the Center for Sex and Culture where I have have the great honor of sitting down with Dr. Carol Queen and her partner Dr. Lawrence.  What a treat as I learn more about the history of one of my greatest passions: sex education.  And of course it wouldn't be the Sex With Jaiya show if we didn't do some kind of education about pleasure and connection - so Carol Queen and I dove into the topic of female ejaculation and the G-spot.  There's always new information emmerging about human sexuality, which is one of the reasons why I love my job so much.  If you are a sex geek like me you definitly want to check out this interview!

Guest Bio:

Meet Dr. Carol Queen

I am a writer, speaker, educator and activist with a doctorate in sexology. First as an organizer in the lesbian/gay community, where I 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, I typically teach and write from my own experience and that of my communities even as I reference academic thought on these subjects.

WRITER

I write explicit fiction and memoir, essays, commentary, analysis, book and film/video reviews, reportage, and interviews. My work has been published in many periodicals and has been widely anthologized, and I have several books in print (see below). I publish a sex and relationship advice column which is available here and at the Good Vibrations Magazines at www.goodvibes.com. I publish a monthly opinion column, The Royal Treatment, in the Spectator Magazine [www.spectatormag.com], which also appears on Libido Magazine's website [www.libidomag.com], and in 1999 had a monthly column at Playboy Online. I am available for public readings and, as available, for freelance assignments.

SEX EDUCATOR

I am a worker/owner at Good Vibrations, the women-owned, worker-owned sex toy and book emporium, where I direct Continuing Education for the staff.
My own educational events are organized through Carol Queen Workshops and The Center for Sex and Culture, a non-profit sexuality education center which my partner Dr. Robert Lawrence and I have spent the last several years organizing. We also teach frequently at Good Vibrations and its sister stores around the US and Canada, as well as at sexuality conferences of various kinds.

In 1975 I helped found GAYouth (one of the first groups for underage Gays and Lesbians in the nation) in Eugene, Oregon. I served as director of the Gay and Lesbian student union at my university later in that decade and was on the steering committee of Eugene Citizens for Human Rights, founded to preserve gay rights which were under attack from right-wing forces. In 1988 I was director of education at the community-based AIDS education and support project in Eugene. My training (after graduating with a major in sociology, a Phi Beta Kappa, and a stint in graduate school) comes from the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, San Francisco's graduate school of sexology - and, of course, from the school of life.
