Lili Johnson,
Program Advisor

Hello! My name is LiLi Johnson and I’m an Assistant Professor in Gender & Women’s Studies and Asian American Studies. I’m also the faculty advisor for Sex Out Loud and am currently teaching GWS 101 Gender, Women, and Cultural Representation. My research focuses on family, kinship, and reproduction, and I believe everyone should have access to comprehensive and inclusive sex education. I love talking about feelings, therapy, and relationships, and love giving advice. I see sexual health as part of a larger relationship to oneself and one’s body. And I’m especially interested in increasing education, openness, and awareness about issues that have historically been taboo or misconstrued due to patriarchy and misogyny. For example, did you know that in a 2015 survey published in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, only 18% of women respondents reported that they orgasmed from intercourse alone. This suggests the majority of women do NOT orgasm from intercourse alone despite common cultural assumptions that suggest otherwise.
