"This is a sex book. It’s a book about having sex by yourself, with one person, or with twenty people if everyone is down. It’s about saying words like cunt, fuck, and come. But it’s also about the things we don’t talk about—the mystery, the expectations, and the bullshit that can go along with sex.

Kaleigh Trace—disabled, queer, sex educator—chronicles her journey from ignorance to bliss as she shamelessly discusses her sexual exploits, bodily negotiations and attempts at adulthood, sparing none of the details and assuming you are not polite company."


Hot, Wet & Shaking: How I Learned To Talk About Sex is Trace's first book of creative non-fiction. It was released in August, 2014. It won the Evelyn Richardson Non-Fiction Award.

To have it and hold it, head this'a way.
