We are thrilled to have added Emily Nagoski’s blog, The Dirty Normal, to our affiliate family! Emily is a college health educator in Massachusetts. In 2006, she completed a Ph.D. in Health Behavior with a concentration in Human Sexuality. She also holds a MS in Counseling Psychology and a BA in Psychology with minors in Cognitive Science and Philosophy. She’s worked for well over a decade in the field of sexuality education and has grown into an impassioned advocate for social justice through sexual fulfillment. Politically progressive and unapologetically atheistic, Emily has strong opinions and a big vocabulary, and she’s determined to use both to make the world a better place for human sexual expression. Emily is also the author of The Good in Bed Guide to Orally Pleasuring a Man, The Good in Bed Guide to Female Orgasms, and A Scientific Guide to Successful Relationships, all of which you should buy in triplicate and then memorize.
I consider myself pretty well educated about human sexuality, but Emily consistently provides me with new information, insights, and language. For that reason, The Dirty Normal is one of my favorite sex blogs to peruse on a regular basis. She is thoughtful, well-rounded, witty, compassionate, and incredibly well versed in all things sex. I highly recommend giving it a read. Be sure to check out her review of our Stone Egg, in which she explains how it is way more (orgasmic) than just a Kegel exerciser.
