"I began this journey at age 11 when I became aware of how many people don't have access to basic sex education. I eagerly joined The New York Women's Center Sex and Birth Control Education Project. At 13 I was lecturing about sex and birth control in public
High Schools and was overwhelmed by the need for information, support and
access to resources -and by how incredibly appreciative young people are to being treated with respect and honesty about fundamental sexual issues.

As I became aware of the social and sexual inequities women face and how crucial the fight for choice and sexually positive role models are for women, I began to focus on women's sexuality. Two workshops with Betty Dodson and then other sexuality research pioneers were a turning point; I realized we need to proactively create safe teaching spaces in our culture to learn about sexuality in a positive, straightforward way. I created the Sex Education Station website to disseminate knowledge about sexual and reproductive wellness free on the World Wide Web, and The Women's Sexual Awareness Workshops for women who want a personal immersion in understanding their sexuality and its potential.

It has been a joy. To recognize our sexual wellness as an important part of our happiness and wholeness is a message that uplifts and heals. If you have questions of your own, take advantage of the Workshops or the pages of this extensive website to explore the pleasure and grace to which you are entitled. Thorough information about sexual wellness is a birthright." ~ Shain
