Your Pitch

Let’s collaborate! 

Because we are all so busy with the enormous amount of work we have to do, I have provided some simple guiding questions for you to ask me about my company, Velvet Lips, and my new baby, the Sex Down South Conference.  I have provided descriptions of them below, along with my bio, so that you can get a feel for what I do, who I am and the creations that I’ve built.  Please feel free to add on any questions that are related to the topic at-hand, as I am really excellent thinking on my feet.  

Proposed Questions:

  1. So what kind of sexuality education does your company, Velvet Lips, provide for individuals?  For couples?
  2. What are the most common problems that you see with the couples that you’ve helped?
  3. What is the best advice that you can give to someone who is single?  People who are in relationships?
  4. What advice do you have for individuals who are either previously voluntarily sexually inactive or are recovering from a sex-related trauma but are ready to adventure back into playland?
  5. What areas will be covered in your Sex Down South conference? How do you go about deciding topics?
  6. What do you think the largest obstacle is in this region, regarding sexual health, identity, and liberation?
  7. What do you hope that individuals who partake in your workshops through either Velvet Lips or those offered at SDS take away from their respective experiences? 
  8. Where do you draw your inspirations from for the work that you do and the endeavors you have undertaken?
  9. As a sexologist and educator, I'm sure you have seen and heard many things. What do you consider to be the most common sex-related apprehension?
  10. In your professional opinion, why do you think sex-related discussions, particularly here in the South, are still deemed so taboo, despite the progresses made across numerous movements and subcultures in recent years?
