For nearly a quarter of a century, Janet Hardy – author or co-author of eleven books, including the classic The Ethical Slut – has been one of the world's leading authors, educators and publishers on alternative sexualities including BDSM, polyamory, alternative gender/orientation expression and more. Now, here's your chance to ask her anything you've always wondered (Janet says "no question too personal")  to hear excerpts from her memoir-in-progress Chasing the Sound, to listen to her thoughts about everything from "is monogamy natural?" to "what's it like to spank a porn star?," and to get signed copies of her eleven books in print.


Janet W. Hardy is a mass of seeming contradictions: mother and slut, dominatrix and homebody, intellectual and showtune queen.

The author or coauthor of ten groundbreaking books about relationships and sexuality, including The Ethical Slut (nearly 100,000 copies sold to date in two editions), Janet has traveled the world as a speaker and teacher on topics ranging from ethical multipartner relationships to erotic spanking and beyond. She is the mother of two grown sons and the veteran of many relationships, kinky and vanilla, with men and women and people in between.

Janet holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from St. Mary’s College of California. She founded Greenery Press, which has been publishing “reading for the sexually adventurous” since 1992, and has taught English composition and creative writing at the university level.

Her other books include The New Bottoming Book, The New Topping Book, Radical Ecstasy, and When Someone You Love Is Kinky (all with Dossie Easton), as well as The Sexually Dominant Woman: A Workbook for Nervous Beginners, The Complete Spanker, and The Toybag Guide to Canes and Caning. She often fantasizes about being handcuffed to Stephen Sondheim’s piano.
