Hi! Welcome to Sex Geek. I’m Andrea Zanin, and I’m a gender-fluid non-monogamous queer perv intellectual and hedonist. I’m also a PhD student, a person who lives with chronic pain and disability, a cancer survivor, an unapologetic lefty, and a lover of many pleasures: dark chocolate, wine, tea, leather, documentaries, good punctuation, good manners, fashion, fountain pens, well-placed curse words, and the company of excellent people.
I started blogging in February of 2005, and moved to WordPress in 2007. This blog is where I write about ideas, politics, theories and occasionally books. (Mmmmbooks…) I don’t write product reviews or publish guest posts. In addition to writing here and elsewhere, I teach and do one-on-one consulting work with folks. Feel free to contact me for any of those things at veryqueer3 at yahoo dot ca. For more regular updates on my writing, teaching and media appearances, come find me on Facebook or Twitter at @sexgeekAZ.
Read on for my standard bio written somewhat awkwardly in the third person!
Andrea Zanin has been writing and teaching internationally about BDSM/Leather/kink, power dynamics, non-monogamy and queer sexuality for over a decade, and she endeavours to bring 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. Her erotic short stories and essays have been published in numerous anthologies. Andrea co-organizes the annual Canadian leatherdyke weekend An Unholy Harvest and runs a pervy book club called The Leather Bindings Society. She lives in Toronto and enjoys eating fine dark chocolate, learning about wine and wearing really nice shoes. Read her at https://sexgeek.wordpress.com or find her on Twitter at @sexgeekAZ.
