A pithy summary of my TEDx talk. Thanks for the shout-out, hellyeahsexpositive!
Understanding the Sex Myth: Rachel Hills at TEDxLoughborough
NOTE: I am such a huge sucker for TED Talks you guys oh my gosh. This one isn’t excessively long, and it boils down to “whatever you think is wrong with your sex life or lack thereof, you’re probably fine”.
Two years ago, I interviewed the lovely Luann Algoso for my book. Now, she is interviewing me for Persephone Magazine. And reminding me that apparently we sang Hanson songs together in a public place. Totes professional.
You can read the interview here.
30 hours til next deadline.
I had so much fun talking media, hook-up culture, and sex myths with Erin Bagwell, Sal Mastrocola, and Ashley Frato for their awesome podcast Feminist Wednesday. You can listen to our conversation (and my weird Australian-hybrid accent) here - the recording went live today.
New Yorkers! I’m speaking at the amazing ROX gallery next Wednesday night. Expect to hear thoughts on writing, literary cultures in Sydney, London and NYC, and maybe even a little excerpt from a forthcoming book called The Sex Myth. Head to the Australian Woman in New York website for details.
Come along, and say hi afterwards. It would be great to have some friendly faces in the audience. Also: I can have a few free tickets to give away to the first four people who email me. Because why not?
My TEDx talk, a fast and dirty summary of the arguments in my book The Sex Myth, passed 10K views over the weekend. That’s double the number of views it had this time last month.
Thanks to everyone who has been watching and sharing it. And here it is again if you haven’t seen it already.
