As sex geeks, we have the unique desire, knowledge, and skills to become Beacons of Permission in the world. Permission to have honest, educational, and even healing conversations about sex.

Kate McCombs photo 300x500Hello Fellow Sex Geeks!

I’m Kate McCombs and I’m a sex educator, blogger, and speaker. Ultimately, all of my work is about helping people feel more comfortable talking about sex. Because the world needs to have more meaningful, accurate, and useful conversations about it.

In 2010, I moved from California to Australia (which is where I founded Sex Geekdom) to get my Masters in Public Health at the University of Melbourne. Now, I’m based in New York City.

When I’m not hanging out with other sex geeks, I facilitate sexuality workshops and write about sex. I’m also the Managing Editor for, a sexuality education blog run by Debby Herbenick, PhD at Indiana University.
