Geeky Women Do Talk About Sex (NSFW)

Several years ago, I received a video collection for Christmas. I learned two things from writing a review for that video series:

First, it seems women aren’t supposed to talk about sex, enjoy sex, or learn how to improve enjoyable sexual experiences.

Second, there was a serious lack of women openly talking about sex.

Recently, I started finding women who aren’t afraid to talk about sex and educate the public—adults and children—however they can. It was so exciting to see women not only talking about basic sex education topics, but reviewing items as well, that I had to share.

Erika Moen grabbed my husband’s and my attention when she was a contestant on Penny Arcade’s Strip Search. We looked her up when we connected that she is local, and was the artist for a book our kids have: Pip! The Baby Monster and How He Was Made At the Museum of Glass (after finding her other comics, we kind of think Pip is phallic shaped for a reason). Erika now has a web comic devoted to reviewing adult toys called Oh Joy, Sex Toy. The first year of comic reviews can soon be found in book form thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, or you can read up on her website.

Erika’s way of sharing her thoughts on different toys (though very much for adults) is wonderfully geeky, and her reviews are so thorough they are educational as well as entertaining. If you don’t see a toy she has reviewed that shows your geeky personality, they can be found. Toys come in any theme including: Hello Kitty, Dr. Who, cute, or just plain techy.

Another geeky woman not afraid to talk about sex is Lindsey Doe. If you are looking for a video instead of a book, she has a YouTube series called Sexplanations.

If you are looking to teach your kids about the birds-and-the-bees, It’s Not the Stork! is a wonderfully illustrated book that talks about a little bit of everything. If you are looking for a different book, GeekMom has a list of recommendations for you. We hope you will check out some books on the list so as our kids grow up, more women are willing to talk about sex.
