In her own words, Carol Queen tells us a bit about her career as a sexologist and activist, saying “I’ve been writing since I was a kid, though have only focused on sex since I became fascinated by sex. I write spanning many genres, almost always to inform or involve as well as to entertain, and when I’m not writing, I teach, talk, and produce events about sex in my capacities as lecturer, staff sexologist at Good Vibrations, and founding director of the Center for Sex & Culture in San Francisco. I’ve authored, edited, or co-edited eleven books, winning awards for PoMoSexuals (a Lammy) and The Leather Daddy & The Femme (a Firecracker Alternative Book Award). I’m about to see a re-release of my first book (from 1995), Exhibitionism for the Shy, and I’m sloooowly working on a memoir. Pretty much all my anthologized work is listed on my home page. I’m also on the board of the Woodhull Freedom Foundation, dedicated to the premise that sexual freedom is a fundamental human right, and this year i’m serving as a judge for the Sex-Positive Journalism Awards.”
What is a sexologist? Carol defines it as follows: “A sexologist is an academic who specializes in the study of sex. this could be from a research point of view, wearing a white lab coat and prodding interesting places; or from a theoretical point of view (the brain is our largest sex organ, after all); or they could focus on teaching. some are also called “clinical sexologists,” and they are essentially sex therapists who work with people who are troubled about their sex lives.
I’m a cultural sexologist, which means that i specialize in looking at the ways sex and culture interact. (my background is in sociology, so that’s a pretty natural progression.) i write and teach, plus i serve as the staff sexologist at good vibrations, the worker-owned, women-owned sex company in san francisco. i write a q&a column for our website, help with staff sexuality education (we want to be able to talk to pretty much anyone about pretty much anything), and answer questions from the press. more about my own work is available on www.carolqueen.com.
