Five (Dirty, Little) Secrets from the Science of Sex with Emily Nagoski
Wednesday, June 10, 8:30 pm
Co-sponsored with Boswell Books
Please join The Tool Shed: An Erotic Boutique and Boswell Books in welcoming Dr. Emily Nagoski, author of Come As You Are, for an evening of conversation and humor.

Have you ever wondered if your sexual desires are normal? Or if you're getting the most pleasure out of the sex you're having? Or whether you want sex more than or less than other people? In her new book, Emily answers some of the big questions about sex, citing the most current scientific studies on the subject and then picking them apart to find the real truths and how they apply to each of us. She will share five of the best secrets from her book, and be available to answer questions. Emily will also be signing her new book. We'll have copies available for sale that evening, or you can pick it up at Boswell Books ahead of time and bring it with you.

Emily Nagoski has written one of the most important books about sex any woman (or anybody else) could ever pick up, full of insights that are both fascinating and deeply useful. Synthesizing new research and theory about sexuality with old-school sex-positive information of the sort you didn’t learn in sex ed... I guarantee Come As You Are will open minds and change lives.” --Carol Queen, Ph.D., Founding director, Center for Sex & Culture

She has a PhD in Health Behavior with a doctoral concentration in human sexuality from Indiana University, and a master’s degree (also from IU) in counseling, with a clinical internship at the Kinsey Institute Sexual Health Clinic.
