ABOUT

Stephanie Boye is on a mission. A sexual assault counselor, speaker, educator, podcaster and mother of three. Stephanie has committed her life to opening and elevating the national conversation around sexuality education, healthy intimacy and porn literacy. Bold and fearless in her approach, she has dug in where few venture to go. Speaking with dozens of experts, parents, educators and most daringly surveying and interviewing thousands of teens to unveil the truth about what's going on in the culture today.  Her discoveries startled parents, many of whom expressed feeling helpless in the face of their children's ubiquitous exposure to porn. Her quest went deep and culminating in her 2019 TEDx Talk.  For the last few years she has created a curriculum called Sexual Citizenship.  Sexual Citizenship is the intersection of comprensive sexuality education standards and ethic, values and culture. She is teaching at The College of Charleston and regularly speaks on panels about sexual assault as well as the intersectionality of pornography and human trafficking.  Most recently she founded a Public Health Campaign called I Needed 2 Know (IN2K)IN2K shares stories of students whose lives have been impacted by lack of sex education when they needed it most.

"My personal and professional life have constantly been in the crosshairs of sexuality and business. Professionally, an entrepreneurial creative: stylist, photographer, designer. I founded a hip maternity fashion line, ChiaraKruza, selling in Bloomingdales, Saks, Nordstrom and Target. I loved empowering women at a pivotal and vulnerable stage of their life and was thrilled to be featured in People Magazine.

Simultaneously my husband and I began raising our three children, now all teens, which brings me to the heart of this topic.

In college, I was sexually assaulted which led me to become a sexual assault counselor and sexuality educator. Through this work I saw so many troubling patterns and began to focus on how I could best prepare my three teenagers, and in turn make a broader impact."  - Stephanie
