Vibrators and Vino: A Feminist Evening with Vibrator Nation author Lynn Comella

Join author Lynn Comella for the Chicago launch of her new book Vibrator Nation, which details the fascinating history of how stores like Early to Bed set the sex-toy industry abuzz. Come mingle, drink wine, and take part in a lively Q&A about how sex-positive stores changed the business of pleasure. You won’t want to miss this event!

Lynn Comella is an Associate Professor of Gender and Sexuality Studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. An award-winning researcher, she has written extensively about sexuality and culture for numerous academic publications and popular media outlets. She’s interviewed porn legend Nina Hartley, covered the red carpet at the AVN Awards, reported on the business of adult webcamming, and investigated the state of sex education in Nevada. She is coeditor of the comprehensive New Views on Pornography: Sexuality, Politics, and the Law, and a frequent media contributor. In Vibrator Nation, Comella takes a deep dive into the making of the consumer market for sex toys, tracing its emergence from the early 1970s to today. Drawing on more than eighty in-depth interviews with retailers and industry insiders, including a stint working as a vibrator clerk, she brings readers onto the sex-shop floor and into the fascinating world of sex-positive capitalism and cultural production.
