Jean Franzblau is a sex-positive and consent-positive speaker who walks her talk. When she discovered the importance of her own sexual empowerment, she wrote a play about it and performed it in ten cities. When she realized how important hugs and affection were to her emotional and physical health, she founded Cuddle Sanctuary in Los Angeles – which has put on over 300 events and served over 500 clients in the three years it’s been in existence.

Jean has presented at sexuality conferences on both coasts and for audiences around the country and abroad. She is known for her energy, expressiveness and the ability to drive a point home for her audiences with laughter. You can find Jean’s writing in the anthology Embraceable: Empowering Facts and True Stories About Women’s Sexuality. She has been featured on Good Mythical Morning, BuzzFeed, and Rolling Stone.
