Hey! I’m Carolyn Yates, a writer and editor with a focus on the intersection of sexuality with cultural issues and public life.

I’ve written about sex, kink, queerness, polyamory, culture, feminism, bodies, ideas, and my personal life for Nylon, Refinery29BitchThe ToastJezebel, Autostraddle, The BillfoldXtra!, and elsewhere

I’m the NSFW editor and literary editor for queer feminist Autostraddle.com. I run sex and kink workshops at A-Camp, a conference slash queer camp slash mountain retreat. In 2015, I conducted the Ultimate Lesbian Sex Survey, a survey of queer women/humans that is one of the largest of its kind. I also make zines

I grew up in Toronto, studied English and political science at McGill University in Montreal, and recently landed in Los Angeles. It’s much warmer here.

Want to hire me? Want to tell me something good? Get in touch.
