As a happily self-identified pervert, Stella Harris has a passion for BDSM education. She writes erotic fiction as well as lifestyle and educational pieces on sex and kink. Through her writing and teaching she explores the complex world of love and lust and strives to help people explore their kinks safely and free of shame.
An active volunteer in her local BDSM and sex-positive communities, Ms. Harris serves as greeter for one of the Portland munches, acts as an organizer of two rope education groups, and keeps a watchful eye over play as Dungeon Monitor at local kink events.
Publication highlights include several anthologies by Cleis Press and a series of tantalizing and informative articles on kinkly.com.
Stella teaches for a variety of sex-positive organizations in Portland in addition to leading and organizing her own public classes and offering private instruction. Best known for teaching and demonstrating rope bondage, Stella has given kink-newcomers a classroom introduction to dominance and submission and an introduction to anal play.
