Anna Banana - often polyamorous and often kinky, this Memphis transplant is very excited about her 30th birthday party. Ever the student, she spends her time reading, writing, reading, gardening, reading, teaching, reading, brewing beer. When the reading is for pleasure, it's erotica and sex-positive feminism. When things get (really) political, she's involved with various environmental, social and reproductive justice organizations.
