New Year, New Classes

2014 was an amazing year, but rather than recap I’m eager to move forward and 2015 is already shaping up to be an incredible year full of classes and events. I have a full slate of classes for the first six months of the year plus a few special events planned. My 2015 classes are kicking off with my popular class, Mapping the Vulva, on February 8th. I couldn’t be more thrilled with the reaction…

How I became a Sex Educator

I became a sex educator out of necessity. At the age of 13 I had to teach my grandmother about female anatomy – specifically the hymen. I guess I should back up a little bit. I was raised by a very sex-positive librarian mother. No knowledge was forbidden. I grew up wandering the stacks of libraries and I learned early, in the days of Dewey Decimal and card catalogs, to find the information I wanted….

Spartacus goodies for Mapping the Vulva attendees!

You may have seen on social media that Spartacus is sponsoring my upcoming class, Mapping the Vulva, by providing door prizes. Well, I went to pick up the prize packages today and I was absolutely blown away by how generous they are. Check it out: Aren’t those amazing??? Here’s how to win: Everyone who buys pre-sale tickets to Mapping the Vulva gets entered and everyone who shows up to class (including door sales) gets entered,…

Lady Cave Spelunking; Or, The Search for the G-Spot Rages On

Yet another study has been released telling women how they can, and should, find orgasms and sexual pleasure. And as usual the online commentary is immediate. The way science tells women they’re supposed to enjoy sex is as fickle as the way science tells us we’re supposed to have a healthy diet. And like the high vs low fat diet or the carb vs no carb debate, the controversy between the clitoral and vaginal orgasm…

Class spotlight: Mapping the Vulva

I’m thrilled to announce another upcoming class: Mapping the Vulva: Anatomy, Communication, Touch, & Pleasure Class description: There is so much mystery surrounding vulvas that it’s become a pop-culture joke. From Orange is the New Black to Gay Men Draw Vaginas – where even the title is inaccurate. Unfortunately, the joke is on us. With vulvas being a place of mystery, and worse – a source of shame – women’s ability to receive pleasure from…

Class spotlight: Empowering Enthusiastic Consent (plus a poll, newsletter signup, and more!)

It may seem like things have been quiet lately but there’s been a lot going on behind the scenes. You may have noticed a website overhaul which includes some new content. I’ve also been working on some business development and continuing education projects. More to come on these soon. For now, I’m pleased to announce that I’m finally launching a newsletter. The Quaintrelle Quarterly: Emphasizing a Life of Passion. Signup now! Also, you may have…

What is a munch?

I talk to a lot of people who are either new to the kink scene or are curious but not yet involved. The general wisdom, and common advice, given to newcomers is that they should attend a munch. This advice is sometimes questioned because a munch can be an intimidating first step, especially for people that are shy, introverted, or experience social anxiety. Recently I’ve felt my own reservations about this advice. I was talking…

Showing my work.

I did a couple of photoshoots nearly two weeks ago and I’ve been waiting for the results not too patiently ever since. I’m not the one who needs to do the culling and editing, so it’s hard not to expect instant gratification. Although modeling is closer to a hobby than part of the free-lance puzzle that is my job, I still get very excited whenever I’m asked to shoot. Seemingly unrelated, I went on a…

Let’s talk about fisting

Well, the Mystery Box Show performance has come and gone, and it was an amazing experience. I can’t remember the last time I was so nervous but once I stepped on stage it was sheer exhilaration. Now I’m wondering if I have any other stories up my sleeve so I can do it again! Did you miss the show? Not to worry! There’s a video you can watch right here:

Telling a story for Mystery Box!

I’ve been a fan of the Mystery Box Show for most of the time they’ve been up and running and I’ve been thinking about telling a story for just as long. Well, the time has finally come! I pitched an idea and they’ve put me in the next show. I’m both excited and terrified. Get your tickets here. And just ten days later I’ll be teaching my third class with my fellow erotica author Emily…
