Testimonials

 

I attended your presentation last night at Fascinations. You were delightful! You presented incredibly value information with humor, sensitivity, and sensibility. – Susie, Workshop Attendee, 2013

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I had a really positive experience. I was so impressed by your breadth of knowledge and your professionalism. I really appreciated that you didn’t talk to me above my experience or education level, you stayed casual and would gently correct me on terms and give me positive reinforcement. Any person who comes to see you for such a session would immediately feel at ease and would leave with a better understanding of themselves and the sexual world around them. I couldn’t have found a better person to see if I had tried. – K.S., Counseling Client, 2012

Working with Shanna has always been a joy. In a field where there are far too few professional sex educators, Shanna is a person I know I can count on to get the job done. I have witnessed her direct a group a sex educators, lead a workshop, coordinate professional events and whatever Shanna says she will do, it will be done, done well and faster than any other sex educator I know. Shanna is a dream to work with and for. I look forward to projects that involve her. – Megan Andelloux, ACS, AASECT, Director of the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health

My Master and I attended your poly and kink workshop yesterday. You are a wonderful presenter and I will make a point to go to anything you teach in the future at one of these events. Not only are you engaging, entertaining and knowledgeable, but the information you presented made us incapable of going to our next workshop. We had to just go find a quiet place to talk for over an hour! Thank you for being a springboard for some very important discussion! – Kinkfest Attendee

Imagine if you can that your most trusted confidant is a graduate in human sexuality.  Imagine that you can bring to her any possible concern about your intimate life and she’ll give you factually correct, compassionate guidance.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such a person as your mentor?  This is exactly what you’ll get when you take advantage of the educational services provided by Shanna Katz. – AAG, sexuality blogger and educator
