Gala Vanting

education and consulting

The longer I serve in the sex industry, the more strongly I’m called to offer education, facilitation and outreach work in the sexuality field.  I am available for workshops, talks, as a panelist, and a film curator.  Broadly, the topics I can speak to include pornography, femininst pornography, queer politics, BDSM and kink, and sex work.  I am happy to take requests; some of the best workshops I’ve run began as suggestions from individuals and festivals.

To give you a sense of the topics I’m able to cover, here’s a list of my recent appearances.
