Hi! I'm Laci. Most know me as the creator of Sex Plus!, YouTube's most popular sex education series (2009-2019).

 

After graduating from UC Berkeley, I created award-winning educational series for Planned Parenthood, Discovery Channel, and MTV. I have also worked as a fierce advocate for sexual assault awareness at the national level at the White House Champions of Change, the US Air Force, The Gates Foundation, and other leading organizations. As a sex educator, I have had the honor of speaking at nearly 200 schools and conferences around the world. In 2018, HarperCollins published my first book, Sex Plus: Learning, Loving, and Enjoying Your Body. You can find my media portfolio here.

 Critical Thinking

The internet has flooded us with information. In response, we must ask questions, understand context, and do our best to logically evaluate the ideas we encounter. Watch my guide to thinking critically on YouTube.
 

Social Justice

Everyone, regardless of race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, or ability deserves dignity, respect, equal opportunities, and fair representation. 
 

 Viewpoint Diversity

My projects embrace a brave space approachA brave space welcomes diversity of viewpoint and experience, compassionate accountability, and dialogue to reach mutual understanding. Participants are encouraged to opt into and out of challenging conversations as they please, without fear of judgment. 
 

 Respect

We can cultivate the spirit of inclusion and open inquiry by engaging meaningfully, and in good faith, with the experiences of those who are different than us. 
 

Science and Reason

The scientific method is the most reliable tool available to us to help parse truth from fiction. Wherever possible, information and claims will be cited with relevant research. Scientific information should be accessible to all and communicated accurately -- without exaggeration or sensationalism.

In 2019, in response to growing polarization and censorship on social media, I began the Indirect Message podcast to explore lesser-heard perspectives on sex, media, and culture. I am interested in cultivating productive discussions across political differences. You can read more about my approach to my work below. 
 

As of 2022, I am in graduate school to become a licensed sexuality and relationships counselor.

My approach to my work has occasionally been misunderstood online and in the media. While I have no undying allegiance to any particular school of thought, my work is based on the following perspectives: sex positive feminism, radical feminism (radical referring to "root", not to extremes), multicultural feminism, darwinian/evolutionary frameworks of sex and biology, logic and reason movements, and secular humanism. Informed consent is the central pillar of my approach to issues in sexuality and gender.
