This presentation will focus on most effectively building a powerful media presence as a sex positive educator. Offering three different prospectives, Hudsy Hawn, Pro Domme, Kate Loree, sex positive psychotherapist, and Steve Aleck, sex positive film director/producer will guide the viewer, with first hand accounts, through an action plan to create a powerhouse media presence. Buzzfeed short videos, “Ask a Polyamorous Person” featuring Steve Aleck and Kate Loree with over 2.6 million hits and “The Try Guys ‘Fifty Shades’ Style BDSM” featuring Hudsy Hawn with over 2.2 million hits will be shown. Hudsy Hawn will cover how she markets not only herself, but also, other sex educators, as the Head Mistress in charge of education and special event bookings at Stockroom University. Kate Loree will share her media marketing plan including Fetlife Ads, Google Adwords, the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom’s (NCSF KAP directory), Twitter, Facebook, etc. that have lead to her having a waiting list for her private practice. Steven Aleck, a video producer at BetterThanFamous and formerly at Buzzfeed will share his experience regarding what does and doesn’t do well on social media. He will also explain which social media venue is right for you and how to accurately measure your presence through the metrics provided by each site. These three lenses will be integrated into a clear strategy for the novice or seasoned sex educator who wants to reach the general public in an approachable and relatable light.
