“jessica drake is the next generation of adult film star turned sex educator, following in the footsteps of legends such as Nina Hartley, Carol Queen, Annie Sprinkle, and Sharon Mitchell. Her style captivates a wide range of audiences, from seasoned sex educators to novices seeking sexual enhancement and knowledge. As a speaker, she provides insightful discourse and incorporates a unique blend of humor and intellect, which allows her to impact her audiences on a deep and cathartic level. Her impact on sexuality stretches beyond education as she also involves herself in sexuality activism and adult film worker rights. jessica’s Guide to Wicked Sex series has proven to be a valuable addition to sex education media and a resource I have used with great success with sex therapy clients seeking to improve their sexual skills, technique, and confidence with partners. In short, jessica is a valuable asset and important voice in sex education and the sex positive movement.
“jessica drake is an engaging speaker, who is knowledgeable and committed to people having safer sex. Her teaching style puts people at ease, and they are able to listen to the information with out ever feeling threatened. Her humility and grace as a presenter are commendable.”

“jessica drake was an exceptional speaker. She not only shared her views on the pornography industry, but more broadly spoke to students about sexual health. She communicated to students ways of learning to become comfortable with one’s own body and learning how to communicate their desires to their partners. She emphasized the importance of understanding and respecting one’s own limits when it comes to sex, and accepting that different people have very different preferences. jessica was a true pleasure to have in class, and the students learned a great deal from her presentation. I would highly recommend her as a speaker for any class related to media issues, gender, or sexuality.”
