Sex Schoolin’: Hot for Teachers November 2013

Welcome back to my monthly introduction of sex educators and sexologists I follow and read. These are the folks who are getting us the information about sex that we need, whether we are sharing that information with others or learning ourselves.

Role call!

Jamye Waxman
Even though it has been a number of years, Jamye still ranks as one of my favourite Sex City guests. Is it because she is a so damn smart about sex? YES! Is it because she is funny and witty? YES! Is it because she can talk on any subject, has written books on sex, produced a series of videos, and generally done so much good in sex education? YES! YES! YES!

Cory Silverberg
Most everyone has a person they are completely starstruck by. For me, it is Cory. It is rare thing when one of his writings doesn’t make me sit back, pause and thing. His writing has always affected me, and he has been at the forefront of sex education in Toronto for so long (we’re sad he’s not here anymore!). His work in the area of sex and disability is inspiring. Check out his amazing book What Makes A Baby.

Ducky Doolittle
The newly-installed education coordinator for renowned sex toy company Tantus has been a sought after speaker and sex educator for years. That is a testament to her creative and honest approach to presenting a wide range of sex ed topics—that are not limited to the joyous parts of sex, but also the difficult and challenging parts of our sexual lives.

Dr. Stephen DeWit
I was lucky enough to be on a panel with Stephen at last year’s Playground Conference, so when I began to assemble a panel for this year’s get-together, I knew I had to ask him. He’s a gifted speaker with wide-ranging knowledge. While I haven’t had a professional session with Stephen, I can just imagine how great he would be in helping to deal with issues.
