Tips, trends, reviews, and stories about adults getting smarter about sex.

Ava is the founder and director of Creative Sexuality Education Center. Using her experience in and love for online education, she established CSEC as a place where quality sex educators and knowledge seekers worldwide can find each other.


She's an online education specialist, not a sex educator or sexologist, but is passionate about supporting their work and helping adults and professionals find high-quality  learning opportunities in sexuality and sexual health. Her interest in these areas dates back to her  Midwestern high school days as a hotline volunteer with Operation Venus, and her insatiable curiousity continues to this day.


Struck by the proliferation of online “information dumps” and lack of instructor-guided online classes for adults,  Ava initially set out to create a professional-grade virtual campus for sexuality educators who wanted to teach online. That campus now houses a growing number of public and private online classes. But as she began seeing the important work being done by dedicated sexuality educators in live venues and various online formats worldwide, she expanded the vision to make CSEC into a central hub to help adults and professionals everywhere to advance their knowledge, expertise. acceptance, and personal fulfillment.
