I was obsessed with books when I was a kid. One of my big dreams was to be a published author, so I was pretty stoked when it started happening: first, as a part of some fun anthologies, then getting to edit one of my own, then seeing my memoirs published (which is, to date, probably my rawest creation). I’ve also ghostwritten several books on fashion, health and beauty, sex, celebrity culture and more.
My bibliography thus far:
Sexography: One Woman’s Journey from Ignorance to Bliss
By turns serious and playful, Sexography maps the coming of age, tragedy and rebirth of one woman’s sexual self. From “making out” with imaginary Hollywood stars in her closet (and getting busted) to coming to terms with abuse, assault and rape, from embracing her curiosity enough to become a sex toy tester to accepting and dealing with her tumultuous past, Milne paints a brutally honest–and, at times, amusing–picture of what it’s like to learn about and experience sex in every sense of the word.

Naked Ambition: Women Who Are Changing Pornography
In Naked Ambition, adult entertainment industry insider Carly Milne takes readers behind the scenes and on to the frontlines of today’s woman-owned and supported adult entertainment industry that has revolutionized both pornography and the traditional feminist movement that has for years often stood in opposition to it. Personal essays by women pornographers and pornography supporters showcase this relatively recent but fast-growing segment of adult entertainment producers and consumers.

The Book of Vice: Very Naughty Things (and How to Do Them)
Somewhere, somebody is having more fun than you are. Or so everyone believes. Peter Sagal, a mild-mannered, Harvard-educated radio host — the man who puts the second “l” in “vanilla” — decided to find out if it’s true. From strip clubs to gambling halls to swingers clubs to porn sets and back to the strip clubs (but only because he left his glasses there), Sagal explores what the sinful folk do, how much they pay for the privilege, and how exactly they got those funny red marks.
