So I’m dedicating my Sunday to the Sex, Love, and Dating Conference at Rutgers. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend last year when Frank Warren was the surprise guest speaker, but this year I am lucky enough to be able to attend.
Megan Andelloux is this year’s opening speaker, and for those of you who live under a rock (or lack the ability to google things), she’s awesome. Megan is the founder and director of The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health, which is as awesome as it sounds. I’m just going to copy & paste her bio from her website, as my coffee and allergy meds haven’t completely kicked in yet today.
Who’s Oh Megan?
She is a nationally Certified Sexuality Educator (CSE) through The American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists, an HIV educatorand a Board Certified Sexologist through The American College of Sexologists.
Ms. Andelloux worked for nine years as a youth-focused sexuality educator in NY, RI, CT, and NJ before bringing her love for teaching at a locally run feminist sex-shop in Providence, RI. It was there that she began to notice adults did not have a space to ask questions and learn about sexuality. She also noticed adults hold many of the same questions teens do when it comes to sexual issues, and so she merged into working in the world of adult sexuality education.
She is a regular contributor for various media sources, a sought-after sexuality consultant for medical organizations, and an contributing author in the books “We Got Issue: A Feminist Response to Cultural Attitudes On Feminism” and “Sex and Society,” a comprehensive guide to current knowledge and expert analysis of sexand sexuality.
Ms. Andelloux was named ” Vagina Warrior of the Year” from the Vagina Monologues for her work regarding sexual communication and fear reduction. She has been labeled by the Rhode Island press as “The Princess of Pleasure” and more recently, “The Sex Ed Warrior Queen” as she is on a mission to promote sexual health, wellness, and communication.
So, as you can gather, I’m super excited for this conference! I got here super early, and was delighted to find the centerpiece below at my table:
Yes, folks, that is a beautiful assortment of flowers, candy, condoms, lube, and free vibrators. (I already snagged one, thanks for asking.) If this is any indication of what’s to come, I’m excited to see where my day goes.
Stay tuned for my sexual adventures today! (When else can I post that??)
