Dirty Lola Returns for EDSE Sex Educator Certification

LOS ANGELES — Educational organization Everyone Deserves Sex Ed (EDSE) has invited sex "edutainer" Dirty Lola to train attendees of EDSE’s upcoming 25-hour sex educator certification program, scheduled April 18-19 and 25-26 in Los Angeles.

Lola will host a discussion of sex toys, lubricants and adult products, giving attendees a stronger understanding of the role they can play in healthy sexual development.

Known for her live sex-ed Q&A show “Sex Ed A Go Go” and as co-host of New York Magazine’s The Cut’s “Sex Probz” web series, Lola has spent almost a decade working to end stigma and shame surrounding sex and sexuality.

“I’ve made a career addressing lack of access to accurate sex education, especially to underserved and marginalized communities, and I’m looking forward to joining the EDSE team again this spring,” Lola said. “I use a friendly, no-holds-barred approach to teaching sex ed in order to help make space for these kinds of important conversations. As a self-proclaimed ‘dildo slinger,’ talking about sex toys is one of my sweet spots and I can’t wait to enlighten EDSE attendees on the vast array of sexy stuff people can use to make sex even more fun!”

Besides her educational projects, Lola also manages SHAG, the female-owned-and-operated sex shop based in Brooklyn, and has brought her brand of sex-positive sex education to events and venues across the country, including Sex Expo New York, Baruch College, Hofstra University, and the University of New Mexico.

EDSE founder and lead educator Anne Hodder-Shipp, ACS, said that she asked Lola to teach this portion of the certification because of her sex toy expertise and focus on harm reduction, which allows her to meet people at their level and make space for growth.

“Lola is beloved in so many communities and her active, passionate discussions of various sexuality subjects online have helped spark much-needed change,” Hodder-Shipp said. “She loves teaching and certainly knows her way around a sex toy shop, which is what makes Sex Toy 101 especially fun and engaging for EDSE attendees. I’m really looking forward to working with Lola again!”

The next EDSE certification will take place April 18-19 and 25-26, 2020, in Los Angeles. Individual certification is $2,095, and payment plans are available to those in need.

To apply, fill out the form. An EDSE representative will review and be in contact within 48 hours of submission.

“During my time as a sex educator, and a sex blogger before that, there was one thing I noticed most people had in common: a lack of confidence in, and even a little fear about, talking about sex,” Hodder-Shipp said. “This insecurity has a dramatic trickle-down effect. It leaves professionals feeling unprepared for workplace dynamics, parents terrified of having ‘the talk,’ and service providers caught off-guard during sensitive conversations with their clients. My goal with EDSE is give people access to the kind of professional and educational support so many of us have lacked throughout our personal and professional lives.”
