Tonight I welcome back award-winning filmmaker, journalist, and advocate Tina Horn to discuss her first collection of nonfiction stories, Love Not Given Lightly. In her vast experience in sexual undergrounds, Tina has befriended pro-dommes, porn stars, kinky fetishists, rent boys, and more. Instead of writing a sex worker memoir, she opted to tell the stories of the people she met along the way. Illuminating human issues of desire, gender, beauty, and ultimately friendship, the stories in this book will do no less than alter the way you think about modern sexuality in America.
