Welcome back to my playground, my Lexual friends!
I recently had the honor of joining 4 amazing, empowered, sex-tech leaders in HeyMama’s Panel “Strong Vibes: The Business of Female Desire.”
Bringing my expertise in writing erotica and empowering women from all walks of life, it felt powerful to join forces with such inspirational femmes fatales.
"We are breaking the glass ceiling between the sheets with this panel of sex-tech trailblazers who are navigating entrepreneurship as women in a long- stigmatized industry. Topics include speaking up about female desire, the future of porn, and whether or not sex still sells — and how much is the right amount right now." -HeyMama
