I have a long history in the field of sex education. I want the world to have fun, healthy sex! Throughout my adult life, I have pursued this goal! I have worked for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains as a clinic counselor, discussing birth control methods, STD’s, HIV risk and test counseling, and human sexuality issues. Through PPRM I trained a core of volunteers to speak on these issues as well. I am a trained doula, helping couples during childbirth. I also spent the last 6 years running my own business helping people enhance their romance, and feel empowered with fun things for the bedroom-talking about and selling lotions, lingerie and accessories. I currently spend some of my free time volunteering with Colorado Healthy Youth Alliance to help all kids and teens get comprehensive sex education throughout their lives.
Workshop Title: Who is Teaching Your Kids About Sex?
Workshop Description: With all the influences kids have, they are definitely getting messages about sex. How do we as their grown-ups guide them through the possible land mines of their budding sexuality? Most parents and mentors want to send a strong message that tells it like it is, gives wisdom and leaves the kid with a sense of your own values around sex. Most people are interested in helping them grow into adulthood with a healthy view of sexuality, enough information to stay safe and still leave them feeling good about their bodies and their sexual selves. This class will introduce ideas on how to start and continue conversations with tweens and teens about sex.
