About the Course

Janet’s latest book, Notes of an Aging Pervert, published as she nears her 70th birthday, contains a lot of the wisdom she’s attained through the years. “And most of that wisdom was acquired in a dungeon,” she notes. “That’s where I learned about setting and respecting boundaries, about inhabiting my own body, about journeying into ecstasy and back again, and a lot more.”


In the process of becoming who she is now – author or co-author of more than a dozen books about alternative sexuality and relationships including the classic The Ethical Slut, longtime proprietor of Greenery Press, and accomplished polyamorist and BDSM switch – Janet’s life included some of the wildest adventures you’ve ever heard about, many of which have never been published (wait till you hear the one about the BDSM cruise!). Please join her for several hours of storytelling, Q&A and open discussion about what can be learned from a lifetime spent in sexual adventuring.

Janet Hardy

Janet W. Hardy is the author or coauthor of more than a dozen groundbreaking books about relationships and sexuality, including The Ethical Slut, which has sold more than 300,000 copies to date.

She spent the first three decades of her life believing that she was the only person in the world who got turned on by thinking about spanking. She wrote her first book, The Sexually Dominant Woman, to help create a world in which nobody else would ever be that clueless.

Janet has traveled the world as a speaker and teacher on topics ranging from ethical multipartner relationships to erotic spanking and beyond. She has appeared in documentary films, television shows, and more podcasts and radio shows than she can count. She has narrated audio versions of many of her books, and looks forward to doing more.

Janet spent a quarter century as editor-in-chief of Greenery Press, the firm she founded in 1992, which went on to publish dozens of books about alternative sexuality and relationships. While she has retired from being a publisher, she goes on writing, drawing, editing and educating about sexuality.

Janet lives the life of a kinky poly queer genderbent geezer in Eugene, Oregon, with her spouse and a whole lot of pets.
