Hot Wet & Shaking / Kaleigh Trace
This is a sex book. It’s a book about having sex by yourself, with one person, or with twenty people if everyone is down. It’s about saying words like cunt, fuck, and come. But it’s also about the things we don’t talk about—the mystery, the expectations, and the bullshit that can go along with sex.
Kaleigh Trace—disabled, queer, sex educator—chronicles her journey from ignorance to bliss as she shamelessly discusses her sexual exploits, bodily negotiations and attempts at adulthood, sparing none of the details and assuming you are not polite company.
Kaleigh Trace’s work has appeared in The Coast, The Huffington Post, CRIT, The Tide, and on her own blog: The Fucking Facts (thefuckingfacts.com). As a disabled, queer, feminist, sex educator she has spoken at conferences across Canada. From her home base in Halifax, Kaleigh writes about safe and shameless sex of all kinds, for all kinds.
“This book is a much needed lighthouse that guides us all with love and laughter.” — Broken Pencil
“Hot, Wet, and Shaking is written in the tone of a trusted and cheeky friend, confessing secrets that shake loose their shame when spoken aloud. This is not the sex advice of a poised, multi-orgasmic, inaccessible, or clinical expert, but rather the honest musings of a woman in a pair of yesterday’s dirty jeans.” — National Post
“Hot, Wet and Shaking is … a funny, fast and absorbing read; powerful, empowering, and so important.” — Pickle Me This
“Trace has learned to talk about sex and she has learned to do it extremely well.” — The Coast
