A Day in the Life of a Sexologist

I’m back!

I’ve been away for 3 weeks- first on a sex ed speaking tour, then on a much needed vacation to Jamaica, then for an out of state wedding.

I’m rested, relaxed, and ready to get back in to the daily grind. Stay tuned!

I’m quoted in #cosmo again this month, speaking the truth about #labia diversity, you know, as I do. #sexologist #drjill #cosmopolitan #sexpert #sexadvice #kaleycuoco @cosmopolitan

I just had a really frustrating and upsetting conversation in which a sexuality educator and counselor who worked with incarcerated people told me, publicly on Facebook, that inmates in her care openly discussed plans for beating and raping other inmates, but she didn’t intervene because she thinks they deserve it. 

I’m so beyond disgusted, like literally sick to my stomach.

I’m leaving for Jamaica in a few hours and so in the interest of self-care, and taking time for myself and my relationship, relaxing, and enjoying my trip, I have to shelve my anger and repulsion about all the implications of this person’s statements. But I’m putting it out there now as a reminder to myself when I return that I want to write a post addressing prison rape, and the gross ethical violation that is a sexuality counselor knowing about, and having power to stop, rapes and deliberately choosing not to. AHHHHHH!

I will be mostly unplugged for the next 12 days, save for the occasional vacation pics on Instagram. My handle is @sexdocjill if you’d like to check out my vaca photos this week.

It’s now April, which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Every year on April 1 when I owned Feminique I donated a percentage of sales from the shop to Men Can Stop Rape. I’d like to continue with that tradition this year with my online store. 20% of all purchases from my website today will be donated to Men Can Stop Rape. (The tricky thing this year however is that I’m going on vacation tomorrow, so only orders in before 2pm EST will be shipped before I leave, so get your orders in early if you can).

UPenn had to cancel my workshop because they lost their funding, so my #sex ed speaking tour has officially come to a close. 5 days, 1,421 miles, 3 states, 4 universities, 6 presentations and 230 students learning about sex positivity and pleasure. Phew! It was an amazing trip but I am pooped, so I booked a trip to #Jamaica. Leaving in 3 days! #workhardplayhard #selfcare

#HistoryoftheVibrator party hosted in a doctor’s office tonight. Talk about coming full circle! The last time the #vibrator in my hand was in a doctor’s office was 1890 when it was used as a medical device to treat #hysteria.

I have 3 different presentations today as my sex ed speaking tour continues; an 11am, a 2pm, and an 8pm. First up, Millersville University for their Women’s Empowerment Retreat.

I wonder if they could have imagined that their fight for #womensrights would make it such that 166 years later a woman could get paid to travel the country with a #vulvapuppet teaching mostly unmarried women pursuing college degrees about clitorises, masturbation, and sexual identity. #thankafeminist #WheresMargeaux? #SenecaFallsNY #travelingsexologist
