Hugo J. Vaillancourt has been involved in sex education and youth empowerment for the past nine years. French is his first language, and he does education in both English and French. He believes that sex is joyful and innocent, and that it should be celebrated openly; his views as an educator reflect this. He strives to take sex ed to bold new places, while reminding people of the humanity of it all. His favourite sex education books are Sex For One by Betty Dodson, and The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy.
