Nichi Hodgson

Nichi Hodgson is an author, broadcaster, and journalist living in London.

A former sex columnist for Men’s Health, she regularly contributes to the GuardianVice, and The Telegraph on civil liberties and censorship issues, sex and the law, and gender politics. From court-reporting obscenity trials, to getting a nuru massage at a Nevada brothel, Nichi is fearless in the face of sexual misadventure, emboldened by her stint as a professional dominatrix.

As well as regular media appearances on BBC radio and Sky News, Nichi makes frequent appearances in TV documentaries and debates on sex, porn and society. Her Radio 4 documentary on porn and ethics is available on iPlayer.

Her first book, Bound To You, details her time as a professional dominatrix and personal submissive, and her latest book, The Curious History of Dating, from Jane Austen to Tinder, is out now.
