Dr. Charlie Glickman and Violet Blue have been named the Best Sexuality Educators of 2013 by SF Weekly. Both Glickman and Blue are known for their exceptionally groundbreaking and thoughtful approaches sexual education and sexuality, and both have published guides with Cleis Press. Glickman just came out with The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure, and Blue's library of titles includes The Smart Girl's Guide to the G-Spot, The Ultimate Guide to Felatio, and The Ultimate Guide to Cunnilingus.

While Violet lives on the web and is committed to making information about sexuality open-source, Charlie is taking his passion for education to the road in a national tour for prostate pleasure. Both educators are committed to making conversations about sexuality open and unabashed, and they aren't afraid to explore areas that others might shy away from. The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure debunks ideas that masculinity is dependent upon certain sexual acts, and Blue's books have been excerpted on Oprah.com for their exploration of female desire.
