Philly.com Announces Sexologist Dr. Jill McDevitt Joins “The New Voices” Platform of Notable Contributors
PHILADELPHIA (January 28) - Philly.com, the most popular news web site in Philadelphia, announced today that nationally recognized Sexologist Dr. Jill McDevitt will join “The New Voices.” Dr. Jill founded her sex education business, Feminque, at the age of only 21 years old. She is an advocate of the idea that sex should be fun, and that everyone has the right to explore and enjoy their own sexuality with no fear of violence. Dr. Jill is the only person in the world with a bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree in human sexuality.
“Dr. Jill is known for being a strong female voice who has never been afraid to express her sexuality and engage in the discussion of what can sometimes be difficult, taboo topics,” said Lexie Norcross, Director of Interstate General Media, parent company of Philly.com.
“I could not be more thrilled to have Dr. Jill McDevitt join our roster of new voices. Dr. Jill is an excellent role model for young women. At only 27 years-old she already holds a Ph.D., owns her own business, and travels the world educating people on human sexuality,” said Leah Kauffman, Executive Producer of Entertainment and Lifestyle, Philly.com.
“Dr. Jill’s views as a sex-positive feminist are challenging the status quo and engendering fresh, new discussions about sexuality on Philly.com. I can’t wait to see what she writes next.”
“As a reader of Philly.com, I’m thrilled and honored to be featured as a contributor. I’m extremely passionate and dedicated to the notion that “sex should be fun, pleasure is good for you, and everyone has the right to enjoy their sexuality without fear of violence,” said Dr Jill. “I look forward to exploring the political, social, and psychological nuances of this notion with readers.”
“The New Voices” is a platform that will soon debut on Philly.com and will feature notable national and local leaders addressing a wide and diverse range of topics. “Our goal, at Philly.com is to reach across the full breadth of our region’s ideas, its people and their lives,” said Steve Alessi, Vice President, Digital Advertising and General Manager of Philly.com. “Relevance and reach can be overused terms, but “The New Voices” reflects our desire to transform and deepen the traditional relationship between a media company and its community.”
With between 7.5 and 9 million monthly visitors, Philly.com is the most popular news web site in the Philadelphia region. It features stories from The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, and a wide array of original content.
