I write about issues that embarrass me (i.e. chin hair), because I have found that putting shame on the page diffuses the stigma, leaving me with a sense of empowerment and freedom. My favorite thing is when a reader writes to me and says, “I have chin hair, too!”
I have published six best-selling Kindle Singles. Thanks for Coming, my first book, which follows me on an adventure to find my orgasm, was translated into three languages - German, Spanish and Portuguese. The book was also optioned by HBO.
I have written for publications such as The New York Times, Salon, New York Magazine and McSweeney’s. Before going freelance, I worked as a staff writer for the Village Voice and daily newspapers in India and Thailand.
