Adult Star jessica drake Discusses Consent & ‘Yes Means Yes’ on RT America’s ‘Watching the Hawks’

Popular News Show Consults Sex Educator & Wicked Pictures Contract Performer on Californias New Laws!

LOS ANGELES (October 28, 2015) On Wednesday, October 27, adult entertainment superstar jessica drake was a featured guest of RT America’s political talk show, “Watching the Hawks.” A prominent sex educator and contract performer and director for Wicked Pictures, drake discussed California’s new education laws regarding consent and its “yes means yes” policy.

California Governor Jerry Brown recently signed a bill into law making California the first state laws requiring mandatory sex education classes in schools including material about sexual harassment, violence, and the “yes means yes” standard for positive consent.

“Watching the Hawks” co-hosts Tabetha Wallace and Tyrel Ventura (son of former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura) spoke with drake about these laws and her own experience educating college students and adults about consent.

“The consent law is a very positive step forward,” said drake on the show. “I think it helps clearly define sexual boundaries, and I think that when we are talking about consent, it is something that has not previously been taught in schools, so we really need help, and we need guidance on it. It takes a grey area, and it makes it more black and white.”

When asked about the term “affirmative consent,” drake responded, “Affirmative consent is enthusiastic consent…It is saying yes…or giving a signal that you are willing to proceed with whatever is happening.” She went on to explain the three pillars of consent: “You know what it is you are agreeing to; you decide that it is something that you want to do; you communicate your desires.”

After Wallace brought up an article on Reason.com detailing criticism from some feminists regarding the laws, drake reminded viewers that it’s still early to form conclusive opinions on such a new law, but that “any progress in sexual education, awareness, and consent can only be a good thing for us.”

In addition to educating men, women, and couples about sex through her line of instructional DVDs, “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex,” drake also tours the country speaking at colleges. When discussing these appearances, drake stated, “It consistently surprises me how many times people have been in sexual situations and have not known how to clearly express their boundaries. So when we hand them a guideline like this, and we’re saying this is okay to say yes or to say no, and consent is an important part of a sexual negotiation, I think it can help.”

Whether teaching her factual style of sexual education via her movies, seminars, or media appearances, jessica drake has always emphasized healthy sexual practices, respectful attitudes about sex, and attention to pleasure. She stresses consent and respect among partners, while encouraging people to move away from a fear-based mentality towards sex.

drake’s informative and non-clinical brand of sex education is on display in her newest instructional, “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Foreplay.” To download the trailer for “Foreplay,” click here.

Renowned Sex Educator jessica drake Releases ‘Guide to Wicked Sex: Foreplay’

Hot on the Heels of Californias New Sex Ed Curriculum Emphasizing Consent, Wicked Pictures Furthers the Message with Its Educational Offerings!

LOS ANGELES (October 23, 2015) Wicked Pictures contract performer and sex education advocate jessica drake is releasing “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Foreplay,” the newest edition of her acclaimed series. The movie is now available on DVD.

The adult superstar, who is the writer, producer, director and host of the award-winning video series “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex,” offers an all-new instructional release on foreplay, which emphasizes healthy sexual practices and respectful attitudes about sex. Like other volumes in the series, “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Foreplay” features adult performers demonstrating effective sex practices, such as foreplay techniques in a variety of scenarios. The movie features Olivia Austin, Claire Robbins, Dani Daniels, Eric Masterson, Steve Rodgers, and Rob Piper.

The all-new release is part of her sex education effort, which stresses consent and respect among partners – a theme now echoed in new California laws requiring mandatory sex education classes in schools including material about sexual harassment, violence, and the “yes means yes” standard for positive consent.

“Sex Ed needs to be factual and not fear-based. It should be realistic when it comes to risks and rewards,” drake said. “Let’s talk about masturbation! Let’s discuss pleasure. Many of us carry so much shame surrounding sex because of the way we were brought up, and now we have to help younger people navigate ever-evolving new technology that instantly delivers information- and misinformation- to the masses.”

Under the new mandates signed by Gov. Jerry Brown last month, school districts that require students to complete a sex education health course for graduation will be required, starting in January, to incorporate instruction about sexual harassment and violence as well as discussions of affirmative consent, which emphasizes “yes means yes” in sexual situations.

The new California mandate is in keeping with drake’s vision for effective sex education by stressing positive and realistic attitudes about sex, as well as respect and consent among partners.

“I created a hybrid Sex Ed – it’s informative, but not clinical. I integrate communication, confidence, consent, and adventure. Its goal is to inspire and empower,” drake said. “As an adult performer, I have a built-in fan base – a platform from which I get people’s attention because of who I am, but then they realize they’re learning and exploring their sexuality.”

Consent also plays an integral role in “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: BDSM for Beginners,” which emphasizes safety and consent in the wake of renewed public interest in the topic. For those curious about bondage, discipline, sadomasochism, dominance, or submission, “BDSM for Beginners” serves as the perfect instructional resource for adding an element of BDSM into personal spaces.

A much sought-after sexual wellness expert, the Wicked Pictures contract star travels the world, making speaking appearances with her message of sexual wellness and the importance of maintaining a healthy relationship through a mutually satisfying love life.

About AIDS Walk Los Angeles:
The world’s first AIDS Walk was developed by Craig R. Miller in 1984, during the height of the AIDS epidemic. Seeing the need for immediate action in response to this public-health emergency, Miller sought to fill the void left by the government’s negligible response to the crisis. Drawing on his experience as a political and community organizer, Miller’s approach combined grassroots activism with fundraising and other campaign strategies to raise both awareness and urgently needed funds for the fight against AIDS. Miller brought his idea to the fledgling AIDS service organization, AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA), who hired the young activist to produce this new event. Miller and APLA expected to draw a crowd of 1,000 supporters and raise $100,000 for this very first AIDS Walk. On July 28, 1985 in Los Angeles, 4,500 courageous and visionary people assembled at Paramount Studios and raised an astonishing $673,000. Since 1985, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has drawn over a half-million participants who have collectively raised more than $72 million for APLA. The event serves as a model of grassroots fundraising and community activism for organizations across the United States. For more information, visit http://www.aidswalk.net/.

jessica drake to Lead Adult Industry Public Discussion at USC

The Adult Star & Sex Educator Will Join Casey Calvert & Magnus Sullivan at October 14 Panel Event!

LOS ANGELES (October 13, 2015) – Adult superstar and sexual health expert jessica drake will join adult star Casey Calvert and filmmaker Magnus Sullivan for a panel titled, “50 Shades of Erotica: The Blurring of the Line Between Hollywood and Adult Entertainment”. The public discussion on the adult industry will take place at the University of Southern California on October 14.

Presented by the USC School of Cinematic Arts, the event will be held at 7 p.m. at the Ray Stark Family Theatre on USC’s campus in Los Angeles. Alex Ago, director of programming and special projects for USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, will moderate.

The event is open to the general public. For more information and to RSVP, click here.

The panel aims to show how sex in Hollywood is about extremes – it is either objectified, fetishized, shown as part of an ogling community, a la “Fifty Shades of Grey,” or it’s shamed by showing characters that embrace what is deemed an overly sexual nature who must change, such as in this summer’s sex comedy “Trainwreck.” Characters who crave sex in a monogamous relationship are generally applauded, while those characters who enjoy an abundance of sex outside of monogamy are generally demonized or require some sort of redemption.

“There is a great need for an open and honest discussion when it comes to how sex is portrayed in film, so I’m very proud to be a part of this panel,” said the Wicked Pictures contract performer who is known as creator, director, producer, and host of the acclaimed sexual education video series “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex”. The newest volume, titled “Foreplay,” will release October 21. “There are a lot of mixed messages Hollywood sends through its portrayal of sex on screen that reinforces a lot of the negative stigma attached to it. Discussions like this will hopefully help bring about a change in attitudes with a healthier view of sex onscreen.”

Wednesday night’s discussion will also focus on the similarities and differences between Hollywood and the adult film industry, as well as what each industry can learn from the other to provide a more accurate depiction of sex on screen.

Joining the discussion will be filmmaker Magnus Sullivan, whose recent groundbreaking independent film “Marriage 2.0” earned wide acclaim for mixing explicit sex scenes with a compelling tale of a modern marriage.

Also joining the panel is adult star Casey Calvert, who educates on the topics of BDSM and fetishes through live appearances around the country, as well as for the e-tail site GameLink.com.

The release of “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Foreplay” will mark the highly acclaimed line’s 12th installment. The sex education series takes viewers through a variety of topics including relationship communication tactics, trigger words, finding a partner’s hot spots, presenting explicit sexual position demonstrations, sexual techniques, and more.

A much sought-after sexual wellness expert and Wicked Pictures contract star, drake travels the world, making speaking appearances with her message of sexual wellness and the importance of maintaining a healthy relationship through a mutually satisfying love life.

The 5 Things Every BDSM Beginner Should Know

A few weeks ago the editors at Refinery29.com approached me about writing a blog with BDSM tips and advice for beginners. I’m happy to report the blog is now up on their site.

The 5 Things Every BDSM Beginner Should Know (Published 7/23/15 on www.Refinery29.com)

gtws_bdsm_jd

There is no denying that BDSM is trendy right now. Look no further than the shelves of your local bookstore, and you’ll see not only the books of E.L. James but also a surge of other erotic writers capitalizing on the desire for edgier sex and steamier novels. When the movie Fifty Shades of Grey premiered in theaters on Valentine’s Day, couples rushed to see it, and many of those couples went on to act out their on-screen fantasies. More than ever, I’ve recently fielded questions from wives (and husbands!) who want to spank or be spanked, to tie up or be tied up, but don’t really know where to begin. BDSM can be a great way to liven things up in bed, but it’s important to have at least a minimal knowledge of safety before you get started. Here are some basic points for the BDSM beginner.
