After half a decade, Heroine Sheik is now retired. However, its archives live on. Go on, poke around. Read!

For those of you visiting Heroine Sheik for the first time — possibly from academia, possibly raising one eyebrow — here’s some background info to consider:

For five years, this has been base-camp for my professional research and writings on sexuality, tech culture, and video games. Though now retired, the site was sponsored and published by The Village Voice. Much of its content, even (if not especially) that discussing my own experiences, contributed to my journalistic and analytical work in what some consider to be delicate subject matters.

As a writer, an academic, and a plain-old person, I take pride in speaking openly and clearly about sexuality and the ways it intersects with our contemporary lives. I believe strongly that topics like cybersex, perversion, and the adult industry are worthy of our attention and insights as both cultural theorists and literary thinkers.

I look forward to a career dedicated to better understanding these issues through creativity and analysis, and hope to act as an example through the “out-ness” of my work — as well as my willingness to approach with frankness rich subject matter often relinquished to the taboo. I’m proud of the material on this site, and the heated debates it sparks.

Let’s debate it together!

    Kelsey!

My mother-in-law gave you a subscription to Cooks Illustrated plus it was among the ideal presents I have ever received! So numerous delicious dishes! This one, but, is undoubtedly the favorite. I make it at least when a month.
