Close your eyes. Now picture yourself sitting amongst a cafe bustling with a thick palpable energy of artistry, eagerly awaiting author and feminist porn icon, Madison Young to step up onto the small stage, with her recently released memoir, “Daddy” clutched firmly in her hands. As this San Franciscan kinkster and radical performance artist reads to you with passion and intimacy you feel as if you are simultaneously the only one in the room and a part of something bigger than yourself, as she opens her lips and shares her stories of heroism, heart break, and struggles in the fight for sexual freedom and the visceral journey of sexual discovery through the lens of a feminist submissive who grew up in Ohio.
Your hands are sweaty and your heart is palpitating like wild stallions as you raise your hand to ask a question, to be a part of the conversation. You extend a copy of “Daddy” and ask for Madison to sign it, her rouged lips meet the pages under her inky scribble, a gester of her unbridled amorous nature, that will accompany you through your own private reading of the book.

“I first met Madison Young when we performed together on the same bill at the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco. I was immediately struck by the wonderful mass of contradictions. Smart but humble. Cute but fierce. Physical but articulate. Frankly, everything you’d want in a porn star. I’ve been following her career ever since. I was so happy when she took her revolutionary ideas of sexuality and began directing, creating filmed sex that’s the next step in the evolution of erotic filmmaking.” – David Henry Sterry, author, activist, performer, muckraker, book doctor at The Huffington Post
“Not many 33 year olds pen a memoir – not many 33 year olds are Madison Young. Daddy was on my list of summer reads and it didn’t disappoint. I found myself rooting for Madison…cheering her on as she funded her art gallery through sex work…tearing up as she suffered relationship difficulties…warming over at the birth of her daughter (Annie Sprinkle was with her in the delivery room)… Love this woman.” – Carlin Ross entrepreneur, sex educator, and writer
Check out these recent write up from David Henry Sterry of The Huffington Post and Carlin Ross, Entrepreneur, Sex Educator, and one half of Betty Dodson and Carlin Ross!
“Young is hyper aware of the seeming contradictions in her story, of being a submissive and a powerful independent artist, of being a mother and a sex worker, of being a feminist and the partner of a not always ideal man. She challenges why these identities are so often dismissed as incompatible at varying levels of her own comfort.” – Ella Dawson (Team Madison Literary Intern) reviews Daddy!
