“LOVE, SEX, AND FAMILY IN NORDIC FILM TODAY” was a course I developed and taught for a number of years with this in mind, using the popular medium of film to address cultural differences in attitudes toward sexuality. Students were always impressed by the more natural approach to youth and sexuality and different forms of intimacy in this context. When later developing another course focused on gender and sexuality, I realized the need for accessible, quality material about children's, youth's and adult's sexuality.
Soon after this, I became a mom, and the birth of my daughter changed my life. Determined to make a positive change, I left my position as a tenured professor in order to focus on my family and the greater public. I have since completed a book about progressive new porn by women, After Pornified: How Women Are Transforming Pornography & Why It Really Matters (Zer0 Books, October 2012), which has been called “a goldmine for all sex-positive women and men,” and a “candid, well-informed personal story of how a good girl became involved in porn.” I have also initiated a book about sleep parenting and families’ sleep arrangements based on interviews with parents (The Sleep Question). And I have founded Love, Sex, and Family.
