Tamara & Amanda
The Orgasm Zine is edited and published by Tamara Harkness and Amanda Stevens. They live in Halifax, Nova Scotia and have been friends since they met hula hooping in 2009. Tamara is a seamstress, textile artist, and aspiring grad student. Her academic interests lie in examining race and representation in arts and institutions. She also lives for music! Amanda is a librarian and sex educator who tries to bring more pleasure, knowledge, and feminist analysis into people’s lives through working at Venus Envy (a feminist and queer-friendly sex and book store), making zines, helping to run the Anchor Archive Zine Library, and talking about sex with strangers. Amanda’s other zines are about peeing outside, fear of spiders, wasps, communicating with cats, and making popcorn.
