Girl Boner Author August McLaughlin

Saturday, Sept. 15, Rediscovered Books

August McLaughlin wears a lot of hats, but on her blog, on her podcast, in articles, during media appearances and now in her new book, Girl Boner, her topic is always the same: sexual empowerment. That has taken her down some interesting paths. While working as a model in Paris, McLaughlin had a near-death experience with an eating disorder—and discovered the healing power of sex. She now discusses how sex and masturbation can improve mental and physical health, relationships and more, but doesn't shy away from the controversial, the sensitive or the contemporary. Her lively, funny and conversational manner makes even the stickiest topics easy to digest. Currently on a tour promoting Girl Boner, McLaughlin will visit Rediscovered Books in Boise on Saturday, Sept. 15.
