Amanda Gay Love

An experienced sexuality educator and guide, Amanda Gay Love is passionate about queers of all descriptions having great sex. She creates queer hearted spaces so that people can explore and expand their sensual, sexual and spiritual potential. Ultimately she is all about pleasure and ensuring that people have a myriad of ways to get it. Over the last 15 years she has been fairly obsessed with LGBT issues and queer sexualities. She has extensive training in women’s sexuality, queer theory, tantra, and BDSM practices. She uses mindfulness, sex education and humour to create spaces that are warm, safe and challenging. Her Queer Hearted workshops facilitate more possibility's for sensational queer sex. Despite always leading from the heart and knowing a bit about chakras Amanda has resisted becoming a fully-fledged hippie, instead she describes herself as a spiritually curious dyke minx femme. She lives in London, spends too much money on books and sex toys and can often be found in gay bars that play disco.
