One of my blog posts, “BDSM As A Sexual Orientation and Consequences of the Orientation Model,” has been reprinted in the anthology Sexualities: Identities, Behaviors, and Society, edited by Michael Kimmel and published by Oxford.
This is obviously ridiculously cool, and I’m so psyched about it. Unfortunately for me, there was an editorial snafu and my article in the book was mislabeled. The author of my piece is listed as Corey A. Brown. Brown did, in fact, write an essay — but Brown’s essay is a different essay from mine. (In fact, if anyone knows Brown and can connect me, that would be great, as I’d love to coordinate with them about this.)
Of course, Michael Kimmel sent me his regrets, and the error will be fixed in upcoming editions. I’m looking forward to meeting him when he attends the upcoming American Sociological Association conference in San Francisco. I plan to drop by the Sexualities section of the conference, so if you’re a sociologist and you’ll be attending, please say hi!
If you want to get a copy of the Oxford anthology, you can buy it on Amazon.
Plus: The article “BDSM As A Sexual Orientation” is one of my best pieces, and is thus available in my epically awesome collection The S&M Feminist: Best Of Clarisse Thorn.
