The study of sexual physiology—what happens, and why, and how to make it happen better—has been going on for centuries, behind the closed doors of laboratories, brothels, Alfred Kinsey's attic, and, more recently, MRI centers, pig farms, and sex-toy R&D labs. I spent two years wheedling and conniving my way behind those doors to bring you the answers to the questions Dr. Ruth never asked. Is your penis three inches longer than you think? Is vaginal orgasm a myth? Can a dead man get an erection? Why doesn't Viagra help women—or, for that matter, pandas?

    Hi! I'm working with a Lesbian writer who has written a new novel "Frozen" - great book for the group and I think she would be open to coming to visit (she's a third generation lesbian, living in Pasadena). She'll be at Skylight Books November 14th, unfortunately, same day as this group but maybe make that an outing?


    [masked] - Carla

    New book by Carla Tomaso is chilling reading

    Frozen is a quirky tale of dark twists, eerie cryonics, and a maternal bond like no other.

    When Elizabeth finds out that her deplorable dead mother, Helen, has had herself cryonically frozen, she has mixed feelings. Elizabeth learns that her enormous inheritance is contingent upon bringing her mother back to life and re-raising her from childhood...

    And so begins Frozen by Carla Tomaso (Amazon, November 12, 2012, $9.95), a dark, tense comedy involving cryonics, reanimation, and a daughter’s determination to create the good mother she always wanted.
