Happy March to all of you!

I’ve decided to give away a copy of my first book, Oral Sex That’ll Blow Her Mind.

Oral sex that'll blow her mind

This book is awesome. I mean, granted, I wrote it myself, but still. There aren’t that many how-to books on cunnilingus out there, and even fewer that cater to all orientations, and recognize the diversity of gender identities and presentations that make up women. Plus, I have a ridiculous sense of humor, so if nothing else, it should be an amusing read.

1) Leave comment on this post about why you should win. (1 entry)

2) Tweet about the giveaway. Example: “Win a free book on cunnilingus at http://shannakatz.com/2013/03/20/oral-sex-book-giveaway/. Thanks @shanna_katz!” or whatever you’d like to come up with. Leave a comment with a link to the tweet. (1 entry per day)

3. Post on Facebook about the giveaway with a link to http://shannakatz.com/2013/03/20/oral-sex-book-giveaway/. Leave a comment with a link to the tweet. (1 entry per day)

4. Sign up to receive my monthly newsletter, the Katz Meow. Leave a comment. (1 entry)

5. Write a post on your blog about the giveaway and link to here. Leave a comment with a link to the post (5 entries)

Alrighty, the deadline for all of your entries is Midnight on Friday, April 5, 2013.

Winner must be US based, or can be international if willing to pay for their own shipping. 18+ only please.

Can’t wait and want to buy your own copy? Email me at shannakatz at gmail (dot) com and I can send you your own copy or copies ASAP, signed however you’d like!

Let the games being!

People frequently ask me which sex toy stores I recommend to them. Lucky for everyone, I’ve been working on compiling a whole list of awesome toy stores that are feminist owned, or woman owned, or have a stated commitment to sex positivity.

Said list of awesome sex toys stores with body friendly items can be found here.

Am I missing anyone? Let me know, and I’ll add them pending me checking them out. While Amazon has its time and place, I would much rather you support your local sex toy stores and sexuality resource centers (and local bookstores!) over a large site like that. Buying a dildo from a big fancy site? Not a big deal for one dildo. Buying a dildo from a locally owned store? That is an investment in increasing sex positivity in our community. Which sounds more exciting? I thought so.

Enjoy the list, and enjoy your savvy sex toy shopping.

Thanks to Westword and all of my readers, I’ve been named the Westword #WebAwards Best Sex Blogger of 2012.

I’m honored that they recognized that blogging about sex education and making sure people have a fun way to medically accurate, useful and interesting information about sex, sexuality, gender, orientation, etc, is just as important as hot blogs full of real life erotica.

I raise my glass to you Denver, and to Colorado! Proud to have won.

I know this blog hasn’t had as many new and exciting posts as it used to, which might be heart breaking to some.  But good news – you can read my writings on a monthly basis at The Fearless Press over at my column entitled Unapologetic, and twice a month, you can get all of your sex, sexuality, and relationship questions answered in my Body Positive sex advice column.

Plus, my newest book, a Lesbian Sexuality and Sex Positions book, entitled She and Her, is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com, or ask your favorite local book retailer or sex positive toy store to order it in advance for you. Add that to Oral Sex That’ll Blow Her Mind, a 5-star reviewed cunnilingus guide, and you not only have fun reading, but some great gift ideas for the holiday season, and even Valentine’s day!

I’m also participating in a sexuality education project called What They Are Asking, where a group of sex educators, myself included, record video answers to popular questions asked by college students and other young adults, about the spectrum of sexuality. Check out the site, vote on questions, and watch the video answers!

Plus, I’m always available for sex coaching and relationship counseling (available in person in the Denver Metro area and via Skype for those out of that area), private workshops, and bookings for events, schools and more.

Want to know how much lube to use? How to tell if someone is gay? How to bring up conversation about having a threesome? Which strap on is right for you? How to have anal sex without pain? What is the best way to pick someone up for casual sex? How to spice up your sex life after decades of love?

I have been writing a sexuality & relationship Q and A column for Out Front Colorado (as well as other posts on sexuality in the community – click here to read all of my writing) and am always looking for anonymous questions, from folks all across the country, to answer as part of this column that is published every other week.

Have a question you’d like answered? Shoot me an email at ShannaKatz at gmail.com and I’ll make sure to answer it AND email you the link when I do. I will not name you or your actual location, and no question is too mild or wild. You can also comment with questions you’d like answered, tweet them to me @shanna_katz, or send them via carrier snail.

Looking forward to helping assuage your curiosity!

Hey y’al!

Men’s Health Magazine has done a write up about my book, and while not every quote is exactly how I’d phase it, it’s pretty well written, and has some good pointers about approaching cunnilingus with your partner.
