Sexuality Educator

Jenna Weintraub, CYT

Healing happens in community and connection. I care deeply about co-creating a safe and nurturing space, where you can examine and divest yourself of narratives that no longer serve you.

She is an alumna of Ithaca College and is currently enrolled in The Sexual Health Certificate Program at The University of Michigan to earn her certification as a Certified Sexuality Educator. Jenna is the instructor for Human Sexuality at The Lifespan Gerontology program in Rochester, NY and a licensed Be Body Positive facilitator. Jenna has a superpower for conveying complicated, sensitive information in a positive, accurate and nonjudgmental manner.

Knowledge is power and you will grow, learn, and become a more empowered person. A sex educator provides information on a wide range of topics related to sexual health, relationships and personal well-being. This includes promoting healthy attitudes, reducing stigma and equipping people with the knowledge and skills to make informed choices regarding their sexual lives. I am an educator. That means that if you schedule a session, we will meet and talk virtually or in-person. There will be no touching, no removal of clothing, and no sexual play. Sessions may include educational activities, worksheets and home assignments. Our work will center around your questions about sex education such as; Anatomy, Arousal, Desire, Dating, Embodiment, Orgasm, Pregnancy Options, Pleasure, Safer Sex, Sexually Transmitted Infections and Diseases, and Sexual Shame. In addition to Education, I offer one-on-one product consultations, and am a personal shopper for gender affirming clothes and products.
