JEAN FRANZBLAU
Consent & Sex-Positive Education

Once upon a time Jean Franzblau opened an in-flight magazine and saw a bunch of people chilling out and cuddling. As a single (and at times lonely) professional, she thought to herself, “That’s for me!” Amazed by the wellness and happiness benefits she experienced, Jean founded Cuddle Sanctuary – the Los Angeles destination for consent and hug-positive events and professional cuddling since 2014. Jean’s bold curiosity keeps bringing her to the cultural edge. Prior to Cuddle Sanctuary, with her background as a writer and performing artist, Jean created a solo show about feminine sexual empowerment. She performed that show in cities across the country – delighting in the opportunity to lead candid conversations about such a sensitive, important topic. Jean has presented at sexuality conferences on both coasts and offers lectures and workshops on consent. Her “silly about serious" presentation style has been honed by her years as a corporate trainer – delivering presentations in the US and eight other countries. Jean graduated cum laude with a BA in communications from UCLA. Jean has also appeared on The Insider, FusionTV, KCET and Comedy Central. You may have discovered her on BuzzFeed (with over seven million views) or caught her appearance on TLC’s My Secret Job.

Programs

Having honed her craft leading hundreds of workshops, trainings and presentations across the U.S. and abroad, Jean will tailor the presentation to meet the special needs of your event. Here are Jean’s signature programs:


Cuddle SanctuaryCuddle Sanctuary: The Extraordinary Consent Event

How do you make a consent workshop FUN? So much fun that students might not notice they’re in a consent workshop at all?

The answer is Cuddle Sanctuary. You may be wondering, “what’s a Cuddle Sanctuary? – That sounds W-E-I-R-D!” Well you’re certainly right, it is unique and different. Cuddle Sanctuary is a lecture and/or workshop that explores the power and benefits of platonic touch – while also being non-shaming and sex-positive.

There’s no touch ever required – in fact the paradox at Cuddle Sanctuary is how safe it is as compared to… Well, everywhere that’s NOT Cuddle Sanctuary!




Session Length – 70 minutes to 2.5 hours + Q&A

Students will:

  • Discover the stress busting benefits of nurturing touch – especially around exam times
  • Practice the communication skills necessary for being a quality cuddle buddy
  • Try the empowering “No Thank You” exercise
  • Learn the “Ask and Wait” method for A+ hugging and cuddle experiences

Alternative topics will allow students to:

  • Learn the etiquette at cuddle events
  • Experience the “Paired Practice” series
  • Test out a “Cuddle Laboratory”
  • Craft their own questions with a candid Q&A

“Jean’s events are the best way to teach consent that I’ve ever seen. And so much fun!” -Maya Novak-Herzog, Education Coordinator - UC Santa Cruz


The Real Sex EdThe Real Sex Ed

The Real Sex Ed is an information-packed session that helps people navigate sexual choices with topics including safer sex, consent, decisions about intoxicants, communication skills and sexual diversity. All discussions are sex-positive and affirming. More than half of the states in the U.S. don’t require public schools to teach sex education. Yet studies reveal that comprehensive sex ed helps young people adopt healthy sexual behaviors. In a welcoming, LGBTQ inclusive environment, Jean Franzblau helps people initiate the (at times) awkward conversations necessary to make informed sexual decisions. With her background as a writer and performing artist, Franzblau created the solo show “Coming Out Kinky – A Grown Up Comedy” which she has performed in cities across the country. Jean has presented at the sexuality conference Catalyst Con and has been the guest on numerous sex educational radio shows. She has delivered presentations in eight countries for groups of up to three hundred people. Jean graduated cum laude with a BA in communications from UCLA.

Sex Ed for WomenSex Ed for Women (What Mom Forgot to Tell You)

Sex Ed for Women is an eye-opening, informative talk. Students learn the common misunderstandings about female sexuality and explore safety, consent, anatomy and empowerment. Research tells us that comprehensive sex education for women has positive outcomes such as decreased pregnancies and improved sexual health. In a welcoming, LGBTQ inclusive environment, Jean Franzblau helps female identified students initiate the (at times) awkward conversations necessary to make informed sexual decisions. Jean guides the class in memorable lessons and powerful conversations so they can up-level their knowledge, self-awareness and confidence. With her background as a writer and performing artist, Franzblau created the solo show “Coming Out Kinky – A Grown Up Comedy” which she has performed in cities across the country. Jean has presented at the sexuality conference Catalyst Con and has been the guest on numerous sex educational radio shows. She provides workshops and coaching on sexual esteem and women’s empowerment and has delivered presentations in eight countries for groups of up to three hundred people.
