Our Story

Over the past five years, we've created nearly 300 Sexplanations videos on sexual health, enjoyment, and history. The YouTube channel just passed the half-million subscriber mark earlier this year, and that is in no small part thanks to the support of viewers who see the value in comprehensive sex education and have the ability to provide financial backing so that we keep the show free for as large of a viewing platform as possible.

Now it's time to take the show on the road! Driving around the country, stopping in towns which might not have great access to sex education and setting up a stage to teach anyone who shows up about anatomy, pleasure, hygiene, and consent - anything our audiences want to know. With your support, we'll encourage an even wider audience to Stay Curious!

The plan is to leave December 27th, head west, then south, then east, then north, or some sort of zigzag depending on what works best to sex educate the country. The more we raise the longer we can be on the road and the more stops we can afford to take. The goal we have now is for 40 stops in 4 months but I’m game to set up at every public library in the U.S.

What We Need & What You Get

We estimate a 40 stop tour will cost about $180,000. Your ongoing support through Patreon will keep us going from week to week. You are keeping the RV fueled, me and my partner fed, the venues paid for, curiosity satisfied, and just occasionally a hot soak in a real bathtub. Oh, and this is really cool! We're partnering with The Effing Foundation to make most or all of your support tax-deductible!

Since you're keeping me on the road, it's only fair you help me decide where to stop. All my Road Tour patrons will get to vote for two locations where they'd like me to stop and set up the stage. If you can chip in for my expenses, there are many perks inspired by your generosity we'd like to send your way.

Risks & Challenges

Touring shows are rife with hard-to-predict challenges. We might have to delay some stops or even cancel a few. That's not ideal, and we'll work to minimize that sort of thing. In any event we'll keep in touch with you all through the tour website in case our plans have to change.

We're structuring the patron levels to maximize my time working with people in each place I stop. Most of the perks are digital and pretty easy to share with you. For those few that are complicated by time zones hours of sunlight we'll keep in contact with you throughout the fulfillment process. 

Other Ways You Can Help

If you can join me in keeping the Sexplanations Road Tour RV rolling, thanks! If not, there's plenty you can do to help.
  • Share information about the tour including our Patreon page on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. 
  • Bookmark the tour website at https://curiousroadtour.com/ and let your community know when the RV is coming to your town. We're counting on you guys to spread the word!
  • More ways to help will be announced soon!

FAQ

What are you doing on this trip? What are your goals?
AWESOME QUESTION! We’re going around the country to set up presentations and answer whatever sex-related questions we can. We are hoping to focus on communities that might not have the availability of online platforms or well structured school curriculums, as they inherently have the most to benefit.

When will this trip happen?
GLAD YOU ASKED! Our current goal is to start this tour in late December and keep it going through March or even longer.

Where do you plan on going?
ANOTHER GREAT QUESTION! By supporting this project, you will get to nominate (not one, but) two locations for the tour to stop. During the planning stages of the tour, all the nominations will be tallied to plan the most geographically inclusive tour possible and everything else we'll try to do with our best efforts. 

Will the weekly Sexplanations videos still be happening?
I KNEW YOU’D ASK. Yes.

What is The Effing Foundation?
AH YES!! The Effing Foundation <https://effing.org> is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization with whom we have partnered to make this tour happen. It is their expressed mission to increase public knowledge of human sexuality and sex-positivity by promoting sexual literacy, health, and wellness worldwide.

So, is my pledge tax-deductible?
YES! Thanks to our partnership with The Effing Foundation (EIN 81-4822649), part or all of your patronage counts as a charitable contribution. The break-down depends on your perks, so check your Patreon receipt for the details.

Are these questions *actually* frequently asked, or just *probably* frequently asked?
Hmmmmm… nobody actually asked this but… Probably.

Thank you for being a part of our community and contributing to the cause. You will receive a link to an e-ballot that will allow you to list two places you’d like the Sexplanations Road Tour to educate.  
Fluid Bonding
$4 or more per month 25 patrons
Think of this as a coffee or fresh-squeezed orange juice date (get it? fluids). For $4.00 a month you’re increasing access to comprehensive sex education and in addition to a ballot so you can vote on where we go, we’ll also give you access to decision making polls. Something comes up that we’d talk about over tea, you’re the ones we’ll go to reason things out.  
Eating Out
$8 or more per month 11 patrons
We’ve estimated that going out for breakfast is 8 bucks, lunch is 12, and dinner is around 17. While most of our meals will be made in the motorhome kitchen, some will be at local restaurants and eaten in your honor. You’ll get weekly videos of my food reviews, a ballot to vote on our tour stops, and access to decision making polls.  
Hot Shower
$14 or more per month 10 patrons
I’m told that even with an onboard shower and hot water heater, we’ll occasionally want to bathe at truck stops and the average cost for a shower there is $14. So for this amount each month, you can feel quasi-responsible for my cleanliness and comfort before going on stage and delivering comprehensive sex education to people who need it. After two months of pledging at this level you’ll receive our custom temporary tattoos. This perk also comes with a ballot, poll access, and weekly food videos. 
Road Head Master
$20 or more per month 13 patrons
As you may know, I affectionately call the Sexplanations Road Tour, "Road Head," because we’ll be on the road sharing sexual knowledge from our heads with communities... and it’s a sex pun. At this pledge level, you’re giving a lot and for that you deserve an official and signed Road Head Certificate, and the ballot, poll access, and mini food review videos.  
Loads (of Laundry)
$40 or more per month 0 patrons
Who doesn’t want to brag about supporting a Sexplanations Road Tour education endeavor across the country by telling their friends that they’re responsible for our loads? Of laundry. At this pledge level you secure our ability to wash and dry our clothes, bedding, and towels with scent-free products. We’ll send you a postcard from the road and make sure that you get all the aforementioned perks. 
I’m going to miss my dog so much
$60 or more per month 3 patrons
I got my dog from the humane society twelve years ago. She’d already had four owners who gave up but dammit I was and am determined to love her until old age. My dog’s name is Lena aka Lean, LaLa, Dog-face-dog, cute-face, and miss pants. I will visit her throughout the trip but she can’t come along because the ride makes her anxious. This pledge level is for her care while I’m away and affords me some serenity to give to this project everything I can. You will receive a photo collection of pup pictures, notes from the dog sitter on how she’s doing, and all previous perks. 
Sex Drive
$90 or more per month 1 patron
Based on the average price of gas and the size of the motorhome’s tank (55 gallons/208 liters), it will cost approximately $157 to fill up. The Sex Drive perk is designed to help us with this cost and literally get us where we’re going. You will get all the aforementioned perks in addition to a 2 minute phone call each month you’re pledged at this level for me to say hi and thank you.  
Hello, Love
$200 or more per month 1 patron
In addition to receiving all the aforementioned perks, those of you pledged at this level will find in your mailboxes a letter from me handwritten with love which you can expect will be full of gushing compliments and gratitude for your support in this project to sex educate underserved communities. 
Road Head Curator
$400 or more per month 0 patrons
Once you become a benefactor at this pledge level, I will collect a set of sexual souvenirs for you and keep collecting them as long as you maintain the pledge and we’re on the road. Then I’ll send you the big ol’ box of treasures. Imagine signed books, toys, greeting cards, sculptures, stickers and the like that I get from places all across the country with sex in mind. I don’t know what all is out there but based on my worldly travels thus far I don’t plan to disappoint.
