This Friday, March 28th at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT on Sex Out Loud radio, I’ll be live with artist, author, activist, educator and filmmaker Madison Young talking about the release of her new memoir, Daddy. Daddy explores Young’s interwoven relationships with the men in her life from the fraught relationship with her biological father to the BDSM “leather daddies” that lead her on a journey of sexual revelation, both on and off camera. When Young finally finds the Daddy that she has been searching for, her fairytale quest is shattered with the flawed realities of human nature that exists outside of this little girl’s fantasy. Find out why Michelle Tea said: “This lady has done more in the first quarter of her life than most people do in a generation.”
