Join us for a lively conversation with the distinguished, iconoclastic, pioneering sexologist and writer Gloria Brame, just past the halfway mark in the composition of her three-volume The Truth About Sex: A Sex Primer for the 21st Century, reflecting a lifetime’s work and thought on sexuality in all its forms — conventional and not.
From Race Bannon’s review of Truth volume I, Sex and the Self:
“Everyone should read this book. I mean everyone…. Dr Gloria Brame is a friend of mine and someone I have longed admired for her sound mind and wonderful writing. She is one of the most refreshing and qualified voices in the world of sexuality today and reading anything by her is a joyful experience…. If you have anything to do with teaching or counseling about sexuality, buy and read this book. If you know professors teaching human sexuality classes, suggest this as required reading. If you know of anyone struggling with negative feelings about their own sexuality, buy and give them this book.”
GLORIA GLICKSTEIN BRAME, Ph.D., is a writer, board-certified sexologist, and sex therapist in private practice. Once described as “the Albert Einstein of kinky sex,” Brame is widely considered the premier authority on fetishes and BDSM, and is a much-quoted expert on mainstream sexual issues, including performance disorders, masturbation, and sexual self-esteem. In addition to The Truth About Sex, she is the author of Different Loving: The World of Sexual Dominance and Submission (1996), and Come Hither: A Commonsense Guide to Kinky Sex (2000). Founder of the world’s first online BDSM peer support group in 1987, Gloria is a full professor at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality and sits on the boards of the Woodhull Alliance for Sexual Freedom and the Leather Hall of Fame.
