Special Addition to Tuesday’s Erotic Literary Salon

Martha Cornog, author of The Big Book of Masturbation, will co-facilitate the Adult Sex-Ed section of the Salon along with sexologist and host Susana Mayer and Walter.

WG-5-ways

Martha Cornog spent six fascinating and fun years researching and writing The Big Book of Masturbation, which was also published in Russian. A former librarian, she has done several books about sexuality materials in library collections, and several books about graphic novels. Some of these books were coauthored by her late husband Timothy Perper, whose collection of short stories she recently self-published under the title Sex, Death, and the End of the World: Stories. She currently reviews graphic novels for Library Journal, a magazine for librarians.

She will talk briefly about her masturbation research and then announce a film to debut in Philadelphia on May 4th: Sticky: A (Self) Love Story, the first documentary feature film about masturbation. Written, produced, and directed by Nicholas Tana, the film includes interviews with sexologists, medical figures, authors, clergy, and people in the porn industry.

Sticky will make you laugh and make you think. Why is one of the most popular sex acts so hard to talk about? When Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders suggested we teach young people that masturbation is normal and it’s safe sex, she was fired. When entertainer Pee-wee Herman was arrested for jerking off in an adult theatre, the media-fueled outrage torpedoed his career for nearly a decade. When 14-year-old Matthew Burdette was surreptitiously videotaped in the boys bathroom reportedly playing with himself, and the video went viral, the merciless harassment from other kids led him to commit suicide. Masturbation itself didn’t hurt any of these people—but shame and blame around it did. (See film trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxfVS_z1JX4)

Sticky: A (Self) Love Story will be shown May 4th, 7:30 p.m. at Studio Movie Grill, 53 South 69th Street, Upper Darby 19082. Tickets are $9.00. Reserve your ticket by April 27th—the event won’t happen unless a total of 67 tickets are spoken for by then. Here’s where to reserve a ticket:

STICKY – A Self Love Story – Masturbation Documentary 

Do Tell

“Do Tell is a crowdsourced compilation of anonymous, true, personal stories about sex and sexuality. This story-sharing blog is an extension of the oral history documentary Subjectified: Nine Young Women Talk about Sex. Please follow us and connect. You can read random entries by clicking below, or search by keyword or content.

Why Do Tell? Because we live in a sex-saturated culture with precious little honest and authentic discussion of sexuality. Because speaking our truths, with all their complications and imperfections and beauty, challenges a culture of shame that impacts us every day. Because our voices and our histories matter.”

It’s your story. Do tell!
