I believe sex education is a form of advocacy and an avenue for healing, resilience, and social justice. Through my work I advocate for the prevention of sexual violence, the reduction of shame, and reproductive justice for all by providing pleasure-focused sex education. I aim to empower those most vulnerable and those who have already experienced violations by using a sex-positive framework, because having a deeper understanding of our sexuality is a way to restore meaning and connect with ourselves and our bodies again. Alternatively, I aim to prevent sexual violence, shame, and reproductive rights violations in the first place by offering sex education as a lifelong adventure to each and every individual. I strive to teach sex education in a way that works to dismantle systems of oppression and removes barriers to sexual and reproductive health access. I have a consistent goal to actively work towards recognizing and eliminating my own biases and contributions to oppression and aim to include this in the way I teach.
