Christianity often gets a bad reputation for being sex negative and shame inducing. Brittany Broaddus-Smith is working to change that. This Thursday, you can find her empowering women at Sex Love Con.

Sex Love Con, is a free 2-day virtual conference with a line-up of educated, professional black Sexperts, Relationship Coaches, Counselors and Mental Health Providers.

In her workshop, she will be providing the building blocks necessary to do the work to resist the systemic teachings that perpetuate oppressive narratives, reclaim your human right to bodily autonomy that is granted by the sacred text, and redefine your future outlook regarding the discovery, embracing and navigation of your sexual being that does not compromise your values.

We wanted to learn more about the heart of such an amazing woman and educator. During our interview, we found out just how deep her passion runs.

Speaker Interview: Brittany Broaddus- Smith

So, tell us about yourself and what it is you do.

I am Christian Sexologist, Licensed Social Worker and Intimacy Expert. My mission is to empower individuals to discover, embrace and navigate sexuality without compromising their beliefs. I believe God has called me to show His people that being holy and sexual are not mutually exclusive. Through sex education, counseling, speaking and coaching I show the world that God and the Bible are inherently sex positive.

What inspired you to get started in your field?

I’ve always loved studying people, my background is in psychology and social work. As I learned more about how inextricably connected pleasure centered sexual health was to human well being, I became inspired to learn more about sexuality as an academic discipline. Very shortly after, it was made clear to me that my way of being on mission for Christ was through sexuality education and empowerment.

What are some insights you learned when you started your business?

I learned that as much as people don’t want to talk about sex, our world is also over sexualized. Sex as been sensationalized to the point work in the field isnt always honored as legitimate. This is the furthest thing from the truth, sexuality professionals save lives. We have to work hard to help folks understand how needed we are. We are a core need in education, in mental health, in health care and entertainment.

What’s the biggest problem women don’t know they have?

Women, especially black women, are so amazingly unique. So I can’t say there is one specific problem that all women have. But what I will say is, what I want all women to know is that they are dope AS IS, period. That they are fearfully and wonderfully made and that God loved you so much that he blessed your with a clitoris. And when He did it, He saw it and said it was Good!

What is your worst horror story in business?

I can’t say that I have a “horror story” persay, but my biggest fear is flat out misrepresenting God and/or His word. Sex is a touchy topic for a lot of people, add in faith and it gets even touchier. However because God talks about it, so I’ll talk about it. But I do so prayerfully and reverentially.
