“The best speaker Harvard University has ever had speak about Female Sexuality!” — Female Orgasm Organizer at Harvard University
What makes her so sought after? She breaks down the latest advances in sexual science, she brings conversations on real issues into the room, and she names the questions people want to ask, but may be too hesitant to pose themselves. Simply put, she speaks about sex the way it should be; inclusive to all orientations and identities, acknowledging the complexities surrounding sex, and supportive, inviting laughter and questions equally.
Megan is frank, passionate and provocative. Paul Joannides, author of the Guide to Getting It On, has said “ Ms. Andelloux is one of the hardest working and most highly regarded sex educators on the planet.” Her presentations are so popular that she has been asked to return to teach to over 94% of the colleges and universities where she has spoken. Megan doesn’t give either/or sex education, but rather listens to the individuals in front of her, and provides options for people to make the best decisions for their sexual health. Her sex-positive philosophy allows her to make sexuality education affirming, accurate and fun, as it should be.

How did Megan get involved in teaching sexuality for adults?
At the beginning of her career, Megan provided sex education for youth as a sexuality educator through Planned Parenthood. Midway through, she started working part time at a feminist run sex toy shop providing sexuality education for the local community. Through conversations at the sex toy shop and the community events she was asked to speak at, she noticed that many adults had the same questions about sexuality as young people she taught during the day. This lead to the discovery that the vast majority of sex education in this country is geared toward youth. Her firm belief is that all people regardless of age should have access to safe and accurate sex information in ways that they can relate to and learn from. Thus, in 2010 she decided to start two adult sex education initiatives: The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health (The CSPH), an adult educational resource center based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and The Study Sex College Tour. Though the two started as separate endeavors, the Study Sex College Tour has since emerged as the main branch educational programming offered through the CSPH. As such, all proceeds from the SSCT go directly into sustaining and developing the CSPH. As of December 2013, The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health became a recognized 501c3 organization.
