This is the sex-positive salon of sex educator, author, college lecturer, feminist pornographer, and VoiceAmerica radio host Tristan Taormino. It is intended for adults only. If you’re not an adult (either 18+ or 21+ depending on where you live), you must LEAVE NOW!

My mission is to educate people of all genders and sexual orientations in their pursuit of healthy, empowering, and transformative sex and relationships. I spread my pleasure-positive message through my books, films, writing, teaching, and lectures.
—Tristan Taormino®, Founder,

ENTER is author, editor, columnist, sex educator, speaker, feminist filmmaker, and radio host Tristan Taormino’s sex-positive salon. It’s a place where people come to get honest, down-to-earth, non-judgmental sex and relationship advice. It’s a resource for information about sexuality (with an emphasis on anal pleasure and health), kink and BDSM, relationships (especially alternative ones), feminist pornography, LGBT community issues, and sex-positive events. It’s a community space to connect with other sex nerds, writers, anal aficionados, ethical porn makers and lovers, sex educators, activists, and members of the perverati.

Tristan Taormino is the author of eight books including 50 Shades of Kink: An Introduction to BDSM, The Secrets of Great G-Spot Orgasms and Female Ejaculation, The Big Book of Sex Toys, The Anal Sex Position Guide, Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships, True Lust: Adventures in Sex, Porn and Perversion, Down and Dirty Sex Secrets, and two editions of The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women.
