As seen in reputable and not-so-reputable news outlets.
The comedian Margaret Cho loved Polly: Sex Culture Revolutionary, and reviewed it, gushing: “Raw, untamed, emotional beauty–Polly is a true supernova. This memoir is as touching as it is hot, as moving as it is a masterpiece.”
Dossie Easton, author of the Ethical Slut, was just as enthusiastic: “I devoured Polly’s glorious, beautifully written memoir in twenty-four hours and now I’m in withdrawal. San Francisco’s amazing sex culture revolutionary has braided together the strands of her life as an artist, as a kid growing up, and as founder of the astounding community that is Mission Control, into a touching, vulnerable and brilliant story. I am totally impressed.”
I’m stoked that John Law, Co-Founder of the Cacophony Society and the Burning Man Festival, sees it’s cultural significance! “Polly’s story should prove to be an inspiration and a touchstone for those who feel constricted by the ill fitting togs of conformity and wish more than anything to free themselves to love and live more.”
Annie Sprinkle gave me a love bomb “Polly’s book is simply brilliant, sexy, delightful, creative, and has so much heart– just like Polly herself.” Awww!
Polly has lived three lives: A rebellious latex fashion designer with a penchant for dancing on tables, an irrepressibly optimistic social innovator with a mad plan to save the world, and a lonely girl defined by the death of her father. This powerful memoir, told with great honesty and sharp humor, vividly captures the failures and triumphs of a young woman struggling to understand the meaning of her own existence, while pursuing her dreams to effect cultural change. This is a true story from the edge of modern sex culture, where the liberal ideals of millennial relationships clash not just with society, but even within our own hearts.
