Michal Naisteter is a trained sex educator, professional matchmaker, and a Sex Positive Mama to her own 2-year-old child. She is creating an online platform offering parents tailored one-on-one sessions, featuring research-backed parenting advice from child development experts. She holds a Bachelor's degree from Penn State University and a Master of Education in Human Sexuality from Widener University.
Michal's insights and positive energy make it so much more comfortable to talk about sex, both in the class itself and afterward with our kids.
Parents, despite our best intentions, are thrown into raising children with no idea how to actually do good parenting. Reading about things like sex-positivity is helpful, but there is no substitute for being able to work through these difficult topics — and so much (often misguided) ingrained attitudes towards sex and sexuality — with other parents. Michal is a thoughtful, smart, caring guide in this journey, and even the most progressive-minded parents can benefit from the kind of conversation Michal facilitates.
We enjoyed your classes and think every parent will find value in your course. Your course allows parents to have an opportunity to brainstorm and reflect on how they can ensure their child grows up with a positive self image and the ability to have open, honest dialogue regarding sexuality, bodily autonomy and beyond.
Education is so important! This course helps educate parents and helps parents educate their child/children. I am passionate about doing whatever we can to prevent abuse of our children. A few important ways for pediatric sexual abuse prevention are educating children (educating ourselves first is essential!), believing them, normalizing the usage of proper anatomic terms and feeling comfortable (education is important here to!) discussing all anatomy with children...actually everyone 😉!
A fun, high energy, informative way to learn about a usually cringeworthy topic! The interactive elements were highlights, including the use of quick breakout discussions which enabled me to actually feel like I got to know people (very rare for an online course).
Michal’s series of anti-classes were informative, fun and challenging. As a parent to 3 young boys, I want to be knowledgeable about how to talk about sex- not just once. But a conversation over time. The topics that interested me the most were consent, orientation and self touching. It was also fun interacting with other parents who are also interested in learning more about sex positivity.
