EMILY NAGOSKI, PH.D.

Emily Nagoski, Ph.D., has been a sex educator for twenty years and is the former inaugural Director of Wellness Education at Smith College.  Her New York Times best-selling book, Come As You Are: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life, has been hailed as a groundbreaking exploration of the science of sexuality.  Sex therapist, Ian Kerner called it a “master class in the science of sex” and relationship researcher John Gottman said it is “an absolutely necessary guide for all couples.”  She has also written three guides for Ian Kerner’s GoodInBed.com, including the “Guide to Female Orgasm,” and her own blog, The Dirty Normal.



Dr. Nagoski has a Ph.D. in health behavior with a doctoral concentration in human sexuality from Indiana University, and a master’s degree in counseling, with a clinical internship at the Kinsey Institute Sexual Health Clinic.  She has taught graduate and undergraduate classes in human sexuality, relationships and communication, stress management, and sex education.
