A person going professionally by “Dr. ______ (first name)” and identifying as a “certified master sex expert” has come on my radar. Never heard of this person before, so I struck up a convo and asked them about their work and background. The person tells me, “I’m not really a doctor. It’s just a nickname people gave me, and it stuck.”
Digging deeper, I learned their “certified master sex expert” credentials come from Loveology University. The sum total of the program consisted of watching 15 one-hour long web videos and paying Loveology University $999.95 for the “certification” after completion. Now they’re a “doctor” and competing with me for interviews from the media (which they do) and speaking engagement on sexuality and health (which they do).
So why did I work my ass off for 10 years to earn my degrees? Apparently I could have just spent a day watching sex videos on youtube and been in the same place.
