About Amory Jane (AJ)

Hi, I'm Amory Jane. I'm a sex educator, podcast host, and sex-positive entertainer. It's a rad career! I love that this is my path and know I'm a lucky human that this is what I get to do.

People often think the life of a sex educator is glamorous or sexy all the time (constant orgasms, partying with porn stars, hotel orgies, etc.) I am here to tell you that while I happily admit my life can be super sexy (and, yes, the orgasms are pretty constant but I've only been to a couple of hotel parties), the truth is that my life is rarely glamorous. Sex education and producing shows = lots of hard work and long unpaid hours. I've also been #blessed with the Chronic Trifecta™: Chronic Pain, Chronic Depression, and Chronic Poverty. This Trifecta makes it hard to keep my business running sometimes, but I’ve still managed to do some neat things. For example:

  • To date I have taught over 350 workshops on sex, consent, and/or healthy relationships.
  • In 2016, I did a poor sex educator version of "Eat, Pray, Love" after my divorce. I left my job managing a sex toy boutique, bought a used 1987 Toyota mini RV, named it St. Edna the Sex Ed Mobile, then went all over the Midwest and South teaching sex education.
  • After the RV broke down, I traded her in for a minivan and did another sex ed tour in 2017.
  • In October 2016, I created the podcast Sex on the Brain with Amory Jane. It has had multiple episodes with thousands of downloads and has covered topics like sex & depression, cannabis for sensual use, and intersectional polyamory.
  • In December 2016, I presented the live stage show Whoopee! A Sex-Positive Variety Show to a sold out audience. 2 years later, Whoopee! is now a popular show that is loved by the community and helps keep Portland weird, sexy, and body-positive. Almost all of our performers are sex workers or LGBTQ artists and are paid fairly and given a safe and encouraging environment to express themselves.
  • In June 2018, I gave birth! I am now a mom to an incredible little human named Elliot. <3 Being a full-time mom often means that finding time for work outside of the home can be even more difficult, but it has also meant a big surge in my creative energy. Patreon supporters are part of the village that help me succeed in raising Baby Elli while also being a sex educator and entertainer.
I'm proud of my journey and accomplishments, but it turns out helping people have better sex and relationships and having people like what you produce is not always the same as getting paid well or being monetarily rewarded. The reality is that being a sex educator means it can be challenging to stay afloat and continue doing important work (especially in the FOSTA-SESTA era). 

So, I set up this Patreon as a way to get more support for things I already do that people love and appreciate --sex education, sharing vulnerability through writing/creativity, offering advice on sex, dating and play parties, and giving an inside look at my ridiculous (sexy, adventurous, new mom, heartbreaking, polyamorous, comical, real) life.

This will be an exclusive community where fans and friends can get to know me and my various projects behind the scenes. I will share sex ed and road trip videos, advice, never before heard audio from my podcast, backstage photos/videos from my variety show (along with playlists of songs featured during the show), new adventures of stepping into the worlds of standup and parenthood, very raw and personal writing, and late night cannabis-fueled posts that may range from comical observations, to deep cultural or self-analysis, to photos that are too hot for Instagram. ;)

Joining my Patreon community means I get to keep doing work that is important and rewarding and betters society, and you get entertainment, education, connection, and to live vicariously through someone who has the wacky life of a sex educator. Each bit of money pledged will go towards me being able to continue my work in the field of pleasure-positive, anti-oppressive, and consent-focused sex education. Thank you! I hope you enjoy, and please always let me know what else you want to see from me. This is my new project, and I am committed to giving you what you want so I can give the world what it needs.
Goals
$488.42 of $900 per month
A monthly goal of $900 would make it possible for me to teach consent-focused, pleasure-positive sex education full-time and to continue creating sex-positive content and events. At this monthly amount, I could offer sliding scale or no cost workshops to non-profits and communities in need, offer free seats at my classes and events to people in marginalized groups, and have more time to volunteer with organizations that help the community, such as SMYRC (Sexually Minority Youth Resource Center) and IRCO (Immigrant & Refugee Community Organization).  

This will also cover the monthly costs of hosting two websites and a podcast on Blubrry, producing Whoopee! and Sex on the Brain, buying postage for patron perks, traveling for teaching tours, and creating a modest savings account to cover my yearly self-employment taxes.
