I am a social worker, health educator and certified sexuality educator who is also the co-owner of A Woman's Touch Sexuality Resource Center, a shop and education center in Madison, WI. I have been talking about sex and sexuality since I started teaching my friends about it when I was 11 years old. My work is to provide medically accurate information about sexual anatomy & physiology and how to enjoy sexual health and pleasure throughout one's whole life, regardless of ability, orientation or gender.
