The last 20 years of science has utterly transformed what we thought we knew about women’s sexual arousal, desire, and orgasm. When does desire for sex start? What happens to the body when you’re turned on? What’s factors interfere with sexual pleasure? What’s the best predictor of sexual satisfaction? Emily will describe the key takeaways from this science, from a feminist, trauma-informed framework.
Emily Nagoski is the New York Times bestselling author of Come As You Are: the surprising new science that will transform your sex life. She has a PhD in Health Behavior with a doctoral concentration in human sexuality from Indiana University (IU), and a master’s degree (also from IU) in Counseling, with a clinical internship at the Kinsey Institute Sexual Health Clinic. She has taught graduate and undergraduate classes in human sexuality, relationships and communication, stress management, and sex education. For eight years, she was the inaugural Director of Wellness Education at Smith College, and now travels the country, teaching college students, training professionals, and learning every day.
Emily’s mission in life is to teach women to live with confidence and joy inside their bodies.
