Dr. Carol Queen created the Center for Sex and Culture over 20 years ago with her partner Robert Lawrence. Together they amassed a HUGE amount of San Francisco sex culture history. We talk about the brilliant mystery of the secret sex lives of the people around us and dive deep into “Erotology” aka the study of eroticism.


In the intro: Men’s fashion and the way the Napoleonic Wars took away men’s cultural permission to be pretty.
