Update: For those of you coming via Feministing (thanks Chloe!), I am still interviewing people over the age of 24. I just have a bit of a deficit in my under 24 sample at present. Likewise people not located in the US or Canada: I am interviewing people from all sorts of countries, but I’m preparing for this particular research trip at present.
If you’d like to talk with me and you don’t fit the below categories, send an email through anyway. It just might take me a little longer to get back to you. Thanks so much to everyone for your interest in the project.
I’m currently prepping for my March/April research trip around the United States and Canada, and am looking for additional people aged 16 to 23 to speak with for my book (click the link for more information).
The Sex Myth is a one-fifth pop culture, one-third academic and one-half personal story driven look at the hidden assumptions that shape our beliefs about sex and relationships - and how those assumptions impact us as individuals and as a society. It will be published by Simon & Schuster globally in the second half of 2013.
I’ve already spoken to loads of great and inspiring people, but I’m looking to bump up my sample of younger, North American interviewees right now.
I’m especially interested in speaking to people DON’T usually put up their hands for conversations about gender and sexuality.
All interviewees featured in the book will be given pseudonyms, and other identifying details will be changed upon request.
If you’re interested in helping out, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work towards setting up a time to speak. I’m also doing some college and high school talks while I’m travelling, so please get in touch if you’d like me to do something at your school.
