Biography

Sexploration with-Monika with Monika

Host of Sexploration with Monika, Monika Thomas, was a radio personality from Alaska who quit her morning show to travel the world and start a talk show about sex. Not only is talking about sex more interesting than weather and traffic, but being more open about sex can make the world better: less shame, more information! Monika has learned so much (who knew women could ejaculate and men could have multiple orgasms)!

Monika is now a certified sexual health educator who teaches rape and domestic violence prevention classes, and her spiritual beliefs include, “Sex is proof that God loves us and wants us to have fun!” As host of “Sexploration with Monika,” she interviews SF’s sexperts on how we can get more of what we want exploring clinical sexology and neuroscience or BDSM and tantra with recurring themes like presence, safer sex, connection, communication, and play.
