Hi! I'm Haylin.

I'm a seasoned sex educator and health promotion professional with a focus in sexual health and youth empowerment. With over seven years of experience in developing health education programming, working in sex toy retail, and putting condoms on bananas, I don't just talk about sex—I know about it.

My mission is to support everyone—regardless of gender, orientation, libido, relationship style, kink/fetish, or sexual experience—in living their best and healthiest sexual lives. No question is too stupid, and no fantasy is too bizarre. All you have to do is ask.

In addition to my work as a health educator, I have experience as a freelance writer, an editorial consultant, a sex shop employee, a workshop facilitator, a public speaker, an abortion doula, and more. I'm a practicing witch and professional tarot reader currently living in New York City with my cat, Princess Walter.

Planning an educational event, employee training, or social gathering? With nearly eight years of experience developing and facilitating award-winning health education workshops for teens and adults, I’m happy to tailor my expertise to your specific needs. I specialize in delivering medically accurate information on taboo topics in an engaging, friendly, and conversational way. All of my interactive workshops are taught from an intersectional, queer-inclusive, sex-positive, harm reduction framework, and can be adapted for ages 12+. I am available for programming related to:

- queer/trans-inclusive and culturally sensitive language
- sexually transmitted infection (STI) and pregnancy risk, management, and prevention
- responsible decision-making around alcohol and other drugs
- witchcraft and/or sex magic as radical self-care
- sexual technique (i.e. oral sex, handjobs, pelvic floor health, kink) and toys
- communication and healthy relationships for teens and adults
- custom workshops related to health, reproductive justice, and/or witchcraft

I offer reduced rates for select nonprofit and educational organizations. I also offer one-on-one Q&As and consultations via text message through Asking For A Friend. I do not offer sexual services and I am not a licensed medical or health care provider.
