Discovering myself while doing little more than eat, sleep, and masturbate.
Sexuality was a taboo topic for a long time. The lexicon for gender expression has only recently expanded to a level that allows for a more nuanced conversation and exploration on the matter. Figuring out myself in a world that worshipped a limited view of sex, of gender, of expression, and of preference, was an adventure laden in frustration, despair, and confusion.
Over the ten years of writing this book, it has evolved as the world has evolved in its understanding of our ability to engage each other's bodies and minds in wholesome, not-necessarily-sexual ways that are far more healthy than the models I grew up with.
