Welcome Tristan Taormino to Community Interview!

Kayla Kayla


Let's welcome sex educator, feminist pornographer, and author, Tristan Taormino, to the EdenFantasys' Community Interview with Buck Angel as her Interview Host!

After Tristan's initial career plans didn't work out, she turned towards sexual education in 1993. Now, Tristan is an award-winning writer, sex educator, and feminist pornographer! She has been featured in over 200 publications and teaches about sex and relationships around the world.

While she is currently on a book tour, Tristan Taormino has certainly been busy lately with the release of her two new books: Take Me There: Trans and Genderqueer Erotica and The Secrets of Great G-Spot Orgasms and Female Ejaculation. This is in addition to 7 other books and 23 other edited anthologies she has previously published. Along with that, Tristan was the former editor of On Our Backs and was a columnist for The Village Voice for almost ten years.

A lot of Tristan's products can be found right here on EdenFantasys! From The Big Book of Sex Toys to the Vixen toy named after her (The Tristan anal toy!), her products are all over EdenFantasys! We're also carrying her famous books Opening Up and The Anal Sex Position Guide along with some of her DVDs such as The Expert Guide to Anal Sex, The Expert Guide to the G-Spot, and Rough Sex 3.

The host for our interview, Buck Angel, was the first FTM to be signed to a major adult film studio before he started his own entertainment company; he has since been nominated for, and has won many, awards including both AVN and XBiz Transsexual Performer of the Year and the Feminist Porn Awards over the last few years. Buck Angel has been on Community Interview before, so feel free to read through his interview to learn all about him!

My reaction exactly! I wish I'd known about it sooner. Now all the questions got intimidated and escaped out of my head.

I know I'd like to ask her about anal erotica - especially the stuff that's done for free on the net. I'd like to know her opinion on how to manage the balance between presenting your fantasy and putting unsafe ideas and expectations in people's heads. I get really annoyed when I read stories that assume that it's normal for the first few times to hurt. It normalizes pain that shouldn't be ignored. On the other hand that imaginary pain might be a crucial element for somebody's enjoyment.

Yeah, my "question" took up a lot of room on the page. I hope it wasn't too long, but I was really excited to be able to ask something I've been wondering about since I did the review for her "Expert Guide to the Female Orgasm." She is so awesome! I've recommended her books and videos to countless friends and loved ones.

I have just read her answers thus far, and with each answer she gives I just love her more and more!


Also, I wanted to thank her for her answer to my question. I am eagerly awaiting "Expert Guide to Male Orgasms", and will be keeping my fingers crossed that it does some day become a reality!


Thanks so much Tristan for doing this interview! You really rock my socks!

Tristan, Thank you for the answer for my question. I was rather surprised, but only a little. Dealing with as many people and mostly with the sexual side of their lives, Buddhism seems to be logical focus to be moving in. I can see where it will give you an inner focus and peaceful calm that many of the other teachings may not.

This interview has been amazing. Tristan Taormino is an awesomely down to earth person, which is pretty wild considering she's got those ginormous brains and a bazillion incredible accomplishments to her name. Thanks to Buck Angel for hosting, and to Tristan Taormino for patiently answering our questions.
