So there are many things that make a sex librarian’s job great. There are countless little things, besides reading Nina Hartley’s fan mail, meeting many a sex positive people, finding Howie Gordon’s (Listen to a new radio interview with him here @Progressive Radio Network) new book signed on my desk and ready for me to read. ALL THE SEX BOOKS—ALL THE TIME.

There is definitely one thing that I love a lot, and that is finding Carol Queen everywhere. It’s like Where’s Waldo to a certain degree. So let me share with you this recent find, as I was cataloging a lot of duplicates of kinky queer magazines (TO BE SOLD SOON__KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR THAT), I was flipping through BLACK SHEETS, and sure enough, there was Carol with some fabulous writing about being a sex slave to her Mistress cat Bracelet.

Also, The CSC LIBRARY is open today! Come by and say hello!

Love, Miss Ian

What a nice surprise this morning to walk in and find Howie Gordon’s new book, HINDSIGHT, True Love & Mischief In The Golden Age of Porn, on my desk.

Here is a picture of the cover,an inscription on the inside jacket of the cover he left for us, a picture I took from inside the book with Howie and Nina Hartley, and the Playgirl centerfold we made him sign for us.

Thanks Howie for hanging out with us at CSC. You’re beautiful. Congratulations on the new book. Just in time for everyone to buy it for their loved ones at Christmas.

And fuckin Whoopi Goldberg wrote the foreward. How’s you do it Howie?
