Janet W. Hardy on BDSM : BCBC Podcast s1e9

(BDSM, Kink, books)

This episode is a really special one because we get to chat about BDSM with author and sexpert Janet W. Hardy. You may know Janet from her, The Ethical Slut, about polyamory and relationships that she wrote with Dossie Easton. But did you know that among many of Janet’s books there are a more than few about BDSM, The Bottoming Book, The Topping Book and many others she has written are about KINK and BDSM.

Here is a little more about Janet from her website:

Janet W. Hardy is the author or coauthor of eleven groundbreaking books about relationships and sexuality, including The Ethical Slut (more than 160,000 copies sold to date, including the second edition published in 2009 by Ten Speed Press).

Janet has traveled the world as a speaker and teacher on topics ranging from ethical multi-partner relationships to erotic spanking and beyond. She has appeared in documentary films (Slut, Beyond Vanilla, Vice and Consent, BDSM: It’s Not What You Think), television shows (SexTV, The Dr. Susan Block Show), and more radio shows than she can count.

Janet’s writing has appeared in publications as various as The Sondheim Review, Clamor and EIDOS. Her book Girlfag: A Life Told In Sex and Musicals was a finalist for both the Lambda Literary Award and the Bisexual Book Award, and her essay “Ex” was a finalist in the Event and New Letters creative nonfiction contests. “The Portal,” a very personal essay about vaginas and their relationship to gender (which is not necessarily what one might think), appeared in Best Sex Writing 2010 (Cleis Press, 2009), and “The Old Folks At Home,” an essay about aging in an ambiguously gendered relationship, appeared in Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation (Seal Press, 2010).

She often fantasizes about being handcuffed to Stephen Sondheim’s piano.
