August McLaughlin is a nationally recognized health and sexuality writer, media personality and host and creator of Girl Boner® and Girl Boner Radio. Her articles have appeared in Cosmopolitan, The Washington Post, DAME Magazine, HuffPost and more. She’s been a featured TEDx presenter and attended the United State of Women summit, convened by the White House, as a nominated change maker. Publishers Weekly called her book, Girl Boner: The Good Girls’ Guide to Sexual Empowerment “equally fun, risqué, and informative” and “a welcome addition to sexual health literature.” The companion book, Girl Boner Journal, is now available for pre-order.
In a culture where female empowerment is used to sell everything from sex toys to soap, most sex education continues to bypass pleasure. The results are stark—we’ve grown accustomed to slut- and prude-shaming and allowed others to dictate how a “good girl” is meant to feel, act, and look.  In Girl Boner: The Good Girl’s Guide to Sexual Empowerment, August McLaughlin offers an unfiltered blend of personal narrative and practical tips on relationships, solo play, journaling, gender issues, and more. From the perks of “Jilling off” to seven types of ‘gasms, Girl Boner will “empower you to own your sexual self and enjoy … your whole life a great deal more.” So, what exactly is a girl boner? We dare you to find out.
