In 2010, Playboy TV approached Wendy to create and oversee a brand-new type of programming: Upscale, network quality, sex-positive programming called TV For 2 that's designed to keep married couples sexually in sync. Wendy jumped at the opportunity to evolve one of the world's most iconic brands and create a brand-new genre of programming designed to help couples.   Surrounding herself with the best sex educators in the world, the student eventually became the master. After friends kept asking her for explicit advice and sex toy recommendations, Wendy began hosting sold-out Advanced Sexual Techniques seminars at her home, bringing together her sex educator colleagues with her suburban mom friends. Moderating these events, Wendy normalized the entire experience and made explicit sex education more attainable for women desperately in need of help and information. Aiming to reach a wider audience and bring her unique mix of sexual expertise and humor, Wendy launched her podcast, Sex Ed The Musical. In addition to hosting the podcast, Wendy is currently writing her memoir about her time at Playboy TV and how it changed her career, life and marriage in ways she never imagined.    You can find her show where podcasts are available and at SexEdTheMusical.com or on Instagram at SexEdMusicalPodcast   Who is Erica Jong:   Erica Jong is one of my favorite writers ever!
