Beverly Hills, CA, September 2022 – During Summer, 1979, when he was 23 and living in Long Branch, New Jersey, a few blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, author Dan Harary found a sign on the boardwalk that read “Spiritual Advisor.” Having never encountered such a place before, and on a whim, he entered. A heavy-set, middle-aged woman stared at him for an uncomfortably long minute, then spoke firmly: “Many women are attracted to you,” she declared. “But something GOES WRONG with EACH ONE you meet.” Leaning closer into him, she added, “The women you desire somehow elude you—they remain just beyond your reach.”

Her words were so completely accurate, Harary almost fell off his chair. How could this total stranger know his entire life story? He’d just walked into her shop at random. For all these many years since, he’s been wondering why he didn’t ask her the cause behind the very peculiar fact that the women he most desired (since early childhood) constantly seemed to elude him?

Now 66, Dan Harary is a renowned Hollywood Publicist as well as the author of his first memoir, FLIRTING WITH FAME: A Hollywood Publicist Recalls 50 Years of Celebrity Close Encounters. That book, which has taken the entertainment industry by storm and chronicles his over 40 years of working shoulder-to-shoulder with dozens of the world’s most famous celebrities; was released during June 2022.

With the release of his brand-new memoir, CARROTS: True Confessions of a Hollywood Sex Addict, Harary once again details, in brutally honest and non-censored terms, his bizarre and truly unique, lifelong history with the opposite sex. The new book, published by Orland, Florida-based Bear Manor Media, can be purchased via Amazon here:


As Harary explains, “CARROTS is about the many, many women I’ve loved and lost, wanted to love but couldn’t for various strange reasons, or was never able to love at all. In the book, I also talk about 25-year-long, undiagnosed depression, my troubled marriage, my 20-year-long struggle with sex addiction, and what I have become convinced is a Past Life Curse that was unfortunately bestowed upon me at birth.”

In CARROTS, Harary details his early childhood traumas, each of which involving a young girl living in his neighborhood or attending his school; his obsession – from afar – with two College era ladies that mystified and eluded him; the unfortunate medical problems suffered by his wife throughout the course of their 11-year relationship; the countless “Really Bad Dates” that Harary endured when he became newly single in 1992; his de-volution into becoming a ravenous sex addict for a period of 20-years, during which time he wound up spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on “pay-for play” sex; his intimate involvement with quite a few important girlfriends, lovers and “friends with benefits;” and his ultimate resolution into evolving into a calm, peaceful man today, whose formerly insatiable sexual appetites have since been arrested.

Here’s what several, top, U.S.-based Sex Therapists have said about CARROTS:

“Imagine tossing Howard Stern’s book Private Parts into a blender along with Woody Allen’s script for Play It Again, Sam and Philip Roth’s book Portnoy’s Complaint. The result might be my friend Dan Harary’s book Carrots: Carrots chronicles Dan’s simple but lifelong challenge: how to navigate his desire and pursuit of alluring women while attempting to overcome crippling shyness and overwhelming self-doubt. Weave into that mix: a series of childhood traumas that affected Dan’s earliest perception of females; his 25-year-long battle with (untreated) clinical depression; an 11-yearlong marriage fraught with troubles; his wacky theory that he was cursed in a past life; a powerful sex addiction; and an endless series of ‘really bad date’ stories that quite often defy logic – or even belief. As a Clinical Sexologist and someone who’s known him since 1984, I can attest that Dan’s brutal honesty will leave the reader pondering: ‘How on Earth was he able to accomplish so much?” – Dr. Ava Cadell, Certified Love Coach, Clinical Sexologist, AASECT Certified Sex Counselor, and Founder of – Malibu, CA

“I can honestly say I’ve never read anything like Carrots before. Dan Harary’s book chronicles a lifetime of troubled relationships with women, some good, some bad, many ugly, but all told from a painfully frank point-of-view. Dan places the reader front and center as he describes in vivid detail the trials and tribulations of his odd history with the opposite sex. A gifted narrator, Dan is often witty and self-deprecating, but more often bares his feelings of longing, unfulfilled desire and heart-breaking disappointment like someone whose body has been cut open head to toe for major x • Dan Harary abdominal surgery. While he’s not often the ‘hero’ in many of his stories, you have to give him credit for being brave enough to share six-decades worth of hugely personal and intimate encounters with his readers.” – Dr. Nancy Sutton Pierce, Holistic Clinical Sexologist, Northern California

“In this absorbing read, Dan Harary candidly delineates his decades-long effort to find happiness and self-worth through sexual conquests. Ultimately, he finds meaning and himself through unexpected avenues, and realizes that his sexual preoccupation had led him astray for years. Carrots is a fun and quick read!” – Dr. Maggie Carroll Vaughan, Psychotherapist, Founder & Executive Director at Happy Apple/NYC, NY

“Dan Harary’s book Carrots strikes a rare balance of being hilariously entertaining while simultaneously sad and painful. It is full of engaging tales of his ill-fated attempts to connect with women. You’ll find yourself laughing out loud while shaking your head in disbelief at the equally humorous and tragic situations in which Dan finds himself! And you’ll wonder, how can one man have so much bad luck?! It’s enough to make you consider the possibility of a past life curse! Carrots is a brilliantly written look into the life of a man struggling with lifelong depression, sex addiction, extreme shyness and self-doubt, as well as several childhood traumas that shaped his perception of the opposite sex, the connection with whom seems to constantly elude him. Despite all this, Dan has still managed to have great professional success. And he tells his very candid and colorful true stories with a spirit of humor and perseverance that seems to transcend all that he has been through!” – Dr. Kathryn Uzunov, Los Angeles, CA

Clinical Sexologist Debra Shade Announces Guidebook for Understanding and Mastering Pleasure

With a proven record of success in her private practice in Columbus, Ohio and popularity as a keynote speaker, trainer and counselor, Clinical Sexologist Debra Shade has announced the release of a new book built to help all individuals home in on and command pleasure. Climax: The Power of Great Sex is Shade’s guidebook for those wanting to learn more about the art of climax. Tailoring the techniques, Shade provides a unique perspective for attaining pleasure for individuals and couples of all orientations.

With a private practice specializing in counseling clients through barriers to completing the sexual response cycle, Shade attempts to change the way we talk about our intimacy activities on a global scale. For too long, intimacy and pleasure have been topics that seem taboo and aren’t effectively communicated in relationships, social circles or the world at large. Debra Shade believes that in order to pursue and ultimately master pleasure, we must overcome messages we have lived a lifetime with and know what we need to be healthy while learning to overcome barriers that keep us stuck at a certain place and unable to move forward in our intimate lives. Her personal knowledge and success helps her articulate specific facets of the world of pleasure and share them in a way that is beneficial to all readers.

Climax: The Power of Great Sex serves as a guidebook to pleasure and unlocks the power of orgasm in a way that is enlightening, exciting and life-changing. Too many of us struggle with achieving orgasm alone or with a partner and Shade’s new book breaks down why that struggle exists and how to eliminate it altogether. Climax breaks down the sexual response cycle to completion in a way that is easy to read, understand and apply. Once knowledge of the way this cycle works is achieved, individuals have access to a key to the vast world of intimacy and orgasm that they have never experienced before. With information about anatomy and erogenous zones that can be activated to achieve ultimate pleasure, individuals can begin using the information they learn right away and are sure to experience results from first trials and applications.

Combining her experience helping clients through intimacy roadblocks with her ability to speak effectively to a crowd as keynote speaker, Shade has created the perfect guidebook that anyone can pick up and achieve results with. People of any and all orientations can find useful information in its pages as Shade made sure that all content in the book is as inclusive as possible. Every person should be able to experience pleasure and climax and it is Shade’s greatest hope that this book helps them be able to do just that. Orgasms, while seldomly discussed, are so important. However, too many people struggle to achieve them in any type of sexual activity. Using the techniques described in Climax, individuals can learn about what they may specifically need to work on to improve their ability to have more pleasure, reach climax and have great sex.

Debra Shade has created an easy-to-follow roadmap that can be used for all people, in all situations. Climax: The Power of Great Sex is the key to the map of pleasure that most of us have been searching for all of our lives. With its therapeutic baseline, everyone can benefit from the information it shares. It was Shade’s deepest hope to help more people have more pleasure in their lives and the release of her latest work achieves that very wish.
