Hi! I’m Andrea Zanin, and this is my blog. I started blogging about sex, gender, kink, non-monogamy and all kinds of related politics in February of 2005, and I’ve been at it ever since (WordPress archives date back to 2007).
Andrea Zanin, a.k.a. Sex Geek, wears her glasses when she fucks. For over a decade, she has been teaching about queer sexuality, polyamory and BDSM/leather for universities, colleges, sex shops, community groups and conferences in Canada, the States and internationally, and she brings an awareness of privilege and oppression to all her work. Andrea is pursuing a PhD in women’s studies at York University with a focus on Canadian leatherdyke history. She writes about alternative sexuality for numerous newspapers and magazines (for instance, she writes a monthly sex column for In Toronto magazine), blogs at http://sexgeek.wordpress.com, and pens erotic fiction when she can spare the brain juice (such as in Tristan Taormino’s “Take Me There: Trans and Genderqueer Erotica”). Andrea co-organizes the annual Canadian leatherdyke weekend An Unholy Harvest, runs a pervy book club called The Leather Bindings Society and judges the occasional leather contest (including Great Lakes Leather Alliance Bootblacking Contest 2008, International Ms. Leather 2009, Mr. Leather Toronto 2010 and International Mr. Leather 2012). She lives in Toronto and enjoys cultivating M/s relationships with exceptionally high-quality individuals, eating fine dark chocolate and wearing really nice shoes.
