This is the home of Franklin Veaux, a writer, computer consultant, polyamory and BDSM activist, sex educator, and sometimes amateur photographer. Over the years, I've built a more or less inadvertent Web empire, and this is the page that brings all my various Web sites together.

I write on a number of topics, including polyamory, BDSM, transhumanism, personal philosophy, science, skepticism, Macintosh troubleshooting, and computer security. I speak at conferences and events about polyamory, ethics, and human sexuality.

I own Tacit Assumptions, the parent company of Symtoys, the home of my sex game Onyx and the popular posters of the Map of Human Sexuality, as well as free tutorials on bondage and sex.

I co-own Thorntree Press, a book publisher specializing in nonfiction books on alternative sexuality, and Tacit Pleasures, a tech startup exploring ways to use direct neurostimulation to help trans* people have the physical experience of being in a body that matches their gender identity.

I am a published writer. I am co-author with Eve Rickert of the polyamory book More Than Two: A practical guide to ethical polyamory and author of The Game Changer: A memoir of disruptive love.

I also write erotica under a pseudonym. My most recent novel, Nineteen Weeks, is a sort of inverted romance thatturns many of the tropes of conventional romance novels on their heads, and features lots of fun kinky sex.
