Around Trixie HQ we know Hanne Blank as the Goddess of All Things Virgin, especially since we interviewed her for our film. Here's a fun little video [if you don't see it above] that we made from part of the interview, where Hanne walks us through the highlights of her virgin-themed charm bracelet.
But before "Virgin: The Untouched History" there was 'Big Big Love." A cult classic from 2000, it's just been revised and updated, but still focuses on the how-tos and why-tos of sexuality from the point of view of big folks and those who love them. When you order your book, make sure it's the revised version, and not the original.
Hanne will be reading tonight in Brooklyn at my favorite resale shop Re/Dress*, which specializes in sizes 14+. (I just got an incredibly hot vintage-looking strapless red satin number there for $20, and a 1950s-inspired leopard cocktail dress for $25. I will be tied to the mast tonight to prevent me from buying yet another dress)
Here are the details for the reading. Hope to see you there!:
Thursday, October 13 8:00pm - 11:00pm Re/Dress NYC 109 Boerum Place, Brooklyn, NY Author Hanne Blank will be presenting her new book, "Big Big Love: A Sex and Relationships Guide for People of Size (and Those Who Love Them)" The reading is free and open to the public. Bring yourself and your burning questions about sex, relationships & size.
*Tragically, Re/Dress will be closing in mid-November, so get yourself there now! The website will live on.
