For eight years, Epiphora has been testing sex toys and writing about them on the internet. Her popular blog, HeyEpiphora.com, is filled to the brim with relentlessly honest sex toy reviews, matter-of-fact masturbation journals, industry critiques, and sex blogging tips — over 600 posts in all. Highly trusted and well-known for her snarky style, Epiphora makes her living almost entirely through her blog, which actually delights her parents.
Epiphora’s writing has been published in Best Sex Writing of the Year, Volume 1 and Storerotica, and she’s been featured on Playboy, Slate, VICE, and Bitch. She has been a guest on Tristan Taormino’s Sex Out Loud Radio and participated in panels at CatalystCon West and East. According to Violet Blue, Epiphora’s blog “has done more than anyone realizes to change the conversations around sex toys.”
In the space of 3 years JoEllen Notte went from brand new blogger to established sex writer, educator, and speaker. Her writing has been said to address sex “from physical, mental and emotional perspectives” and she has become a go-to source for information on topics ranging from sex shops to the impact of mental health on sexuality. She has taught countless students, clients and readers about the wonders of powerful toys, high-quality lube, respectful communication and well-timed Ghostbusters references.
JoEllen’s work has been featured in Alternet, xoJane, Kinkly, and, of course, The Redhead Bedhead. Known for approaching all topics with a balance of honesty, compassion and razor sharp wit, JoEllen believes that through constant learning, non-stop dialogue and frequent wise-assery we can save the world from mediocre sex.
In addition to instruction and personalized feedback from Epiphora and JoEllen, students will be treated to tidbits of advice from over 30 successful industry leaders!
