This is the home of Franklin Veaux, a writer, computer consultant, polyamory and BDSM activist, sex educator, and sometimes amateur photographer. Over the years, I've built a more or less inadvertent Web empire, and this is the page that brings all my various Web sites together.
I write on a number of topics, including polyamory, BDSM, transhumanism, personal philosophy, science, skepticism, Macintosh troubleshooting, and computer security. I speak at conferences and events about polyamory, ethics, and human sexuality.
I co-own Thorntree Press, a book publisher specializing in nonfiction books on alternative sexuality, and Tacit Pleasures, a tech startup exploring ways to use direct neurostimulation to help trans* people have the physical experience of being in a body that matches their gender identity.
I am a published writer. I am co-author with Eve Rickert of the polyamory book More Than Two: A practical guide to ethical polyamory and The Game Changer: A memoir of disruptive love.
I also write erotica under a pseudonym. My most recent novel, Nineteen Weeks, is a sort of inverted romance thatturns many of the tropes of conventional romance novels on their heads, and features lots of fun kinky sex.
