Kristin Thiel has been one of the great surprises of publishing Men Undressed: Women Writers and the Male Sexual Experience. An avid writer, reader and editor working out of the Pacific Northwest, she has emerged as a dream to work with, and one of the most enthusiastic champions of the book, pitching in to help book our national tour and mentioning the book in her freelance journalism. Kristin’s beautifully elliptical piece is about a man whose wife suffers from what seems to be vaginismus, and her patient protagonist admittedly stands in some stark contrast to many of the more impulsive or selfish characters likely to populate any anthology “about sex,” reminding readers of the great variance of sexual experience, and among men themselves, fictional or otherwise. Here, Kristin reveals several more surprises, including her ability to insert Anne of Green Gables into a sex interview!
