Kate Davis is completing her PhD in Women’s Studies in Religion with an emphasis on North American Religions. She spends a lot of my time thinking about, writing about, and talking about sex, which is not always as exciting as you might think. She lives in a creaky Victorian house in Ohio with her math professor husband and two cats.
