Who is Laci Green?

Basically…
I am a 25-year-old activist based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. I am the creator and host of the largest sex education show on the internet called Sex Plus! Sex+ consists of a YouTube video series, social media blogging, university lectures, and community activism. The project currently reaches over 5 million people each month in over 100 countries. My activism focuses on access to sex education, sexual violence prevention, and gender equality. To these ends, I also produce video content for Planned Parenthood and MTV. Formerly, I helped launch Discovery’s science news show, “DNews”, to 1 million subscribers. I left in October 2014 to work on other projects.

Me offline
I am a friendly and talkative introvert. In my off time, I enjoy the outdoors, reading, traveling, meeting new people, cooking, eating (duh, who doesn’t?) and community activities in the East Bay. Aside of my obvious passion for sexuality/gender studies, I have a great interest in politics, science, mental health, nutrition, and social institutions (like education, govt, and religion).

I live in the world of ideas and I crave social progress. My main driver in life is social justice (aka fairness and equality between humans). I consider myself strong-minded and ambitious and I will stop at nothing –NOTHING!– to make waves in our social landscape. MUAHAHA

In terms of my personal life, I live with my partner of 4 years in a cosy flat in the San Francisco Bay Area. It has a bright orange wall and a super strong wifi connection — all you need in life, really. Since 2011, I have been working full time (and then some) on building my career as a sex education activist.

Why are you so interested in sexuality?
Well duuhhh…because sex is awesome! It’s fun, it feels good, it’s a way to connect with others, to connect with ourselves, and it’s how our species continues. It’s also tied to more social ills than one might realize. Sexuality is certainly not just about sex….

Alas! Forward on my quest for vagina love (and all the other types of love too).
