about haylin

I'm a seasoned sex educator, bodyworker, and holistic health promotion professional with a focus in reproductive justice and youth empowerment. With over a decade of experience in developing health education programming, working in erotic retail, and providing facilitation trainings for activists and educators, 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, physical fitness, trauma background, or sexual experience—in living their best and healthiest lives. No question is too stupid, and no fantasy is too bizarre.

This mission has taken me to K-12 public and private schools, college campuses, health promotion offices, nonprofits and community-based organizations, national conferences and more. I have shared my expertise as a presenter at the National Sex Education Conference, SisterSong’s Let’s Talk About Sex gathering, and Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit, among others, and my work has been featured by Fusion, MetroFocus, Real Talk Radio, and beyond. I also offer curriculum consultation and capacity-building workshops for nonprofits and activists working for sexual and reproductive justice.
