Amy Jo Goddard has been bringing her open, non-judgmental and humorous sexuality education to a variety of audiences for over 15 years. She is co-author of Lesbian Sex Secrets for Men and has published other works on sex, gender, sexuality and identity. Currently, she teaches largely to college students and adults, traveling to universities, colleges and other communities to share her queer, feminist perspectives on sexuality and relationships. She also works with individuals and couples as a sex and relationship coach. In 2010, she launched the Women’s Sexuality Empowerment Apprenticeship program in New York City to work with women on a deeper level, guiding them to explore, heal, celebrate, and expand their sexual selves. She is taking the program on the road in 2011. She is a member of many spiritual communities and believes in the strong connection between spirituality and sexuality. When she’s not being a sex geek, she can be found surfing and hanging out on beaches, making art, and vibing on music.
