Reading from romance novelist MJ Summers
This is a collective of researchers, filmmakers, engineers, designers, educators and sexologists who are passionate about making an honest, practical resource about women’s pleasure. They wanted this information for themselves and couldn’t find it! Just knowing that ‘everyone’s different’ isn’t as useful as knowing the specific ways we’re different and being able to discuss them. Through their fun, honest videos, you can explore the latest science about what feels good and why. (omgyes.com)

Steamy romance novelist Melanie Summers resides in Edmonton with her husband and three children and the cutest one-eyed dog ever. When she is not writing novels, she loves reading, snuggling up on the couch with her family for movie night (which would not be complete without lots of popcorn and milkshakes), and long walks in the woods near her house. Melanie is a member of the Roman Writers Guild of America, as well as the International Women’s Writing Guild.
