This week Cory Silverberg, a favorite sex expert of mine, is ready to help you shop for the right sex workshop, the right sex store, and the right sex expert. The man has you covered to get uncovered! Since I’m promoting my own workshop, Romance & Finance, I figured I should link to those good tips for those of you aren’t in the Atlanta area and need to find your own local experts. Visit with me at Aphrodite’s Toybox if you can, and if you can’t, check out his suggestions.
And seriously, I do encourage you to be picky consumers of your sex information. There are no requirements out there for training or regulations for quality, so you have both the right and duty to ask what training, credentials and references your sexpert carries. You may also wish to ask what they can offer (if anything) regarding any special needs or requirements you have, from knowledge of specific physical limitations to their level of conservative or liberal-ness. Although my desire to offer positive sexuality information was the main motivator, I also began this blog to help potential workshop attendees get to know me a bit better.
As for my credentials, I review them at my main site but I can also sum them up here by letting you know that I’m on the final stages of accreditation as Sexuality Educator by AASECT, and also on the final year of my PhD in family studies. I’ve received special training in working with domestic violence survivors, LGBT individuals and families, couples and several other areas. Plus, I’ve presented at international professional conferences on my work and have a growing list of regional and national awards for my areas of study and service. Oh yeah, and I’ve been published in academic journals. If you’re that curious I can share my CV with you. ;)
And to address my level of conservativeness… well… you’ve got my blog so you can draw your own conclusions based on what you’re seeking. You’re also welcome to click “communicate” up above and drop me a line!
