I have been working in the sexual education field since 2011. I first started my sex ed journey working in the adult toy novelty industry. I helped empower people’s sexuality while dispelling myths society has taught us about sex and pleasure. These experiences led to my realization for the need of medically-accurate sex education in schools.
For the past five years I have been working with youth. I gotta say, the biggest difference between youth and adults is striking - but also doesn’t surprise me. Youth ask more questions that typically stem from curiosity and myths about sex and sexuality. The “Am I Normal?” questions come from everyone, but most questions I received from adults were shame-based. This really doesn’t surprise me, since a lot of adults never received a sex education - which is not the fault of anyone but our educational system.
