Patty Allen-Stott (Sailor Jerri)
I graduated from UC Davis Majoring in Women & Gender Studies emphasizing Human Sexuality and minored in Psychology focusing on human development. I spent the last three years of my undergraduate studies conducting research on the way children develop a sense of gender roles/identity and how this is expressed through toys/play. I identify as queer however I have only been in a sexual relationship with one person, additionally I am this person’s only sexual partner. I have worked as a Health Educator for Students (Middle School, High School, and College Freshman) lecturing on Risk Reduction. I have also worked in the Sex Industry as a Smut Peddler for Camouflage. I worked for Camouflage for over 6 years as the Sales Manager & Education Director. I have done additional work in the Sex Industry as a Voice Over Artist and I am a contributing Author to a number of Risk Reduction and Feminist publications.
Sandra punches sexual shame in the face. She is known the world over for her podcast, “Sex Nerd Sandra.” At once irreverent and educational, the show has earned a top spot on iTunes. Its loyal listenership (over 10 million downloads) is vocal about Sandra’s impact, describing her as “inspiring” with “contagious enthusiasm” and an “awesome nerd-like ability that [she’s] not afraid to show.” Her weekly podcast has run since 2011 under the Nerdist Industries banner with no end in sight. Brimming with book smarts and street smarts, Sandra is passionately committed to creating a safe space for each person’s unique intimate needs. Her methods include heavy doses of physical comedy, playful insight and surprising disclosure. Learn more at Sex Nerd Sandra.[http://sexnerdsandra.com]
