I am so incredibly honored to be part of Go Magazine’s 100 Women We Love collection of 2012.
a) Go Magazine is incredibly amazing, and a great magazine — I highly recommend you check it out.
b) I’m on a list with people like Rachel Maddow, Wanda Sykes, Ellen Degeneres. Say whaaaaat?
c) There are not many sex educators on that list, now or in the past, and I’m really glad they’ve chosen to recognize the importance of accessible, accurate and interesting sex education, especially for the LGBTQ community.
d) There is a huge picture of my and my vulva puppet. Win!

“Professional pervert”—to some it’s an insult; to Shanna Katz, M.Ed, ACS, it’s her job description. The self-described “queer kinky disabled femme,” a board-certified sexologist, teaches about the huge spectrum of sexuality through discussions about relationship communication skills, non-monogamy, oral sex, disability and more. She’s using her Masters of Sexuality Education to provide accessible sex education to people across the country and online. “Sexuality education is a field that needs attention, focus, conversation and open-minded people,” she observes.
