Hello! I’m Marlena (pronounced Mar-lay-na) and welcome to WeNudeToTalk! A platform that exists to answer your questions about sex, relationships, bodies and pleasure in as shame-free and as safe a way as possible. Please see my Boundaries page
I have worked in sex education and related industries (from sex toy shops to marketing agencies for sexual health brands) for over six years, (3 years full time and 3+ years volunteering/part time) teaching people of all ages about masturbation, STIs, porn, anatomy and more. I have also contributed to multiple publications including NetDoctor and SheerLuxe as well as having worked and collaborated with some incredible people and organisations.
Currently, I work full time with young people and sexual health (often known in some schools as ‘The condom lady’). I am also training to become a licensed sex and relationships therapist with the goal to better help people, especially young people, learn what they want when it comes to pleasure and intimacy.
I strongly believe that embracing our bodies and desires (or lack thereof) without shame is the most powerful form of resistance that we have.
