LONG BEACH, Calif.—Emerging sexual wellness authority and adult entertainment superstar Jessica Drake will participate in a panel titled "Sex Education: Out of the Classroom, into the Streets!" at the CatalystCon sexuality conference in September.
In addition to Drake, panel participants include such noted sex educators as Carol Queen and Dr. Robert Morgan Lawrence.
The CatalystCon Sexuality, Acceptance & Activism Conference is coming to the Long Beach Hilton in Long Beach, Calif., Sept. 14-16. With 40 seminars and 50 speakers, this conference is a “melting pot of sexuality” that will unite sex educators, sexologists, sex workers, writers, activists, and anyone with a passion for creating change.
For her part, Drake is eager to participate in the conference, noting, "So many people get their sex information—or should I say misinformation—from mainstream media and online entertainment. I believe a discussion of how to best disseminate sex knowledge will be helpful to people who want to teach healthy, positive sexuality."
Regarding Drake's participation in the conference, organizer Dee Dennis enthused, "I'm thrilled to be able to have Jessica Drake as a speaker at CatalystCon and especially as a part of the sex educators panel for Out of the Classroom. Many of us fight for sex education in our schools, but I also think sex education for adults is just as important. There are many different ways to do that, as shown by the panel jessica is on. She has an established fan base that makes it possible to reach people others may not. One of the major messages of CatalystCon is 'knowledge is power' and I feel that jessica is fulfilling that message with her series of sex-ed videos."
Uniting a lifetime of study with a decade’s worth of experiential research, Jessica Drake's Guide to Wicked Sex is receiving excellent reviews from adult industry authorities including AVN. The production Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Fellatio won the 2012 AVN award for Best Educational Release and Jessica Drake’s Guide Wicked Sex: Anal received the 2012 XBIZ award for Specialty Release of the Year. Continuing her commitment to sexual education, Drake writes a monthly column for AdultDVDEmpire.com titled Ask Jessica Drake Anything. Each month she answers 10 questions on love, sex, and romance.
CatalystCon will take place Sept. 14-16 at the Hilton Long Beach & Executive Meeting Center in Long Beach, Calif. Registration is required. For more information, visit CatalystCon.com.
