Today I fly back to London after 5 weeks travelling the US and Canada doing interviews for my book (click the link for more info). In that time I’ve hit up Washington DC, Baltimore, the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill research triangle, Asheville, NYC, Boston, various parts of Maine, Toronto, Winsdor, Detroit, a frat house in rural Ohio, Maui, LA, the Bay Area, Portland, Seattle and finally Houston, from which I am writing this missive.
Now, I’m looking to do the same in Western Europe, and I need your help. I’m looking for people of all genders, classes, ethnicities, religions and political persuasions to share their thoughts and experiences on all matters sex related. The book mostly focuses on people aged 16-30, but I’m interested in older and younger interviewees as well.
The book 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 and Penguin in the second half of 2013.
I’m especially interested in speaking to people DON’T usually put up their hands for conversations about gender and sexuality (I’m looking at you: men, conservatives and people who haven’t been to university).
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 email@example.com with your age, location and a bit of information about yourself/why you’re contacting me, and we can work towards setting up a time to speak.
