Janet W. Hardy is a mass of seeming contradictions: mother and slut, dominatrix and homebody, intellectual and showtune queen.

The author or coauthor of ten groundbreaking books about relationships and sexuality, including The Ethical Slut (nearly 100,000 copies sold to date in two editions), Janet has traveled the world as a speaker and teacher on topics ranging from ethical multipartner relationships to erotic spanking and beyond. She is the mother of two grown sons and the veteran of many relationships, kinky and vanilla, with men and women and people in between.

Janet holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from St. Mary’s College of California. She founded Greenery Press, which has been publishing “reading for the sexually adventurous” since 1992, and has taught English composition and creative writing at the university level.

Her other books include The New Bottoming Book, The New Topping Book, Radical Ecstasy, and When Someone You Love Is Kinky (all with Dossie Easton), as well as The Sexually Dominant Woman: A Workbook for Nervous Beginners, The Compleat Spanker, and The Toybag Guide to Canes and Caning.

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

Girlfags and Guydykes: what they mean to our understanding of gender and orientationjanet girlfags

 

Throughout history, there have always been women who feel most at home with and among gay men, and men who prefer the company of lesbians as friends and lovers. Neither entirely queer nor entirely straight, such individuals challenge our understanding of gender and orientation. Janet — a girlfag whose life partner is a guydyke — will discuss her understanding of these liminal identities, and offer space for sharing and exploration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

S&M: Spirituality for the Left-Brained

If you’re having, or desiring, SM experiences in which you feel like you’re merging with your partner or with the whole universe, or in which you’re losing your place in space and time or leaving your body… but you just can’t hang with the language and concepts with which such experiences are usually explained… this is the class for you! Please bring a mat or blanket to sit on (if you can't sit on the floor, we'll make other arrangements for you), and wear something comfortable to move around in.
