Frank R. Larkin is an ardent advocate for shame-free, consensual sex. A survivor of sex abuse perpetrated by a predator-pediatrician in Omaha, Frank believes that the coached sexual shame we're subjected to as children not only protects abusers and the institutions who foster them, but plays far too significant a role in the lives of millions of sexually dissatisfied men and women.
Through his frank, sexual writing, F.R. Larkin hopes to lessen the stigma around sex between consenting adults, lifting the burden of lifetime shame from those victimized by sexual abuse and turning this generations-old weapon on those egregious predators that have benefitted from it for far too long. Frank’s musings on sex, dogs and life with chronic pain can be found on HeatandStir.com.
