This Friday at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT on Sex Out Loud we feature sex educator and author Ducky Doolittle, interviewed live at CatalystCon. Over the years Ducky has used her writing and sense of humor to pursue her deep lust for knowledge and understanding in regard to sexuality, class, race, gender, culture, compassion and human rights. She’ll talk about her blog, Lipstick Stains on Your Pillow, and how her counseling experiences has informed her work as an sex educator. Then, we have Malay Vannouvong from ANEROS discussing how she came to work for the company that transformed the manufacturing of prostate stimulators, and Tom Stewart, the founder and CEO of Sportsheets, who will discuss how his products have broken out of the dungeon to great sales success, mainstream media attention, and numerous industry and mainstream awards.

Ducky Doolittle is the author of Sex With The Lights On: 200 Illuminating Sex Questions Answered. She has spent the last two decades working in the field of sexuality. She is a certified emergency room Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention Counselor and has trained with Planned Parenthood in comprehensive STD prevention and comprehensive & medically accurate sex education. Ducky tours internationally, performing on campuses, medical schools, bachelorette parties, homeless youth drop-in centers, book clubs, church groups, sex shops and anywhere else she can gather a crowd. She has appeared on HBOs Real Sex, The Morning Show, MTV, NPR, The Howard Stern Show, and Playboy TV… to name a few. Ducky’s unabashed openness about her life developed into a successful career as a journalist and advice columnist.

Tom Stewart, Founder and CEO of Sportsheets International, Inc., created the Sportsheet, the “Velcro” Bondage Bedsheet, while serving as a helicopter pilot in the Marines in the late 1980’s. Tom banked on this unique idea for a never-before-made product, unknowingly, on the cusp of the adult novelty industry explosion. Inspired by an episode of the David Letterman Show, he developed a product that would allow you to restrain your partner with safe and easy-to-use Velcro. A key selling point on the Sportsheet is that “you’re only as tied us as you want to be,” which makes the product very alluring to women. Over the last two decades Tom continued to build his company on the fantasy bondage concept, developing more than 500 different products for curious couples.

Malay Vannouvong has been a part of the ANEROS team for almost 5 years. Fresh out of the Univ. of Houston in 2008, Aneros gave her her first real job and she was appointed Dir. of Client Relations at the end of 2012. What started off as a cool option, an alternative to a cubicle within a restrictive corporate setting, has quickly transformed into a passion. ANEROS is the home of products scientifically designed for sexual wellness and pleasure. Backed by years of testimonials from happy customers, and great reviews on the radio, books, magazines, and the web, ANEROS has established itself as the ultimate source for sexual fulfillment.
