Shanae Adams is a Sexuality Professional from Denver, CO. While pursuing her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Missouri she served as a Sexual Health Advocate Peer Educator on her university's campus. It is here that she discovered a passion for sexuality education and an adept ability to present these topics with a unique flair and an engaging personality. That initial act of service triggered a long and prosperous career in sexuality education.
Shanae has provided education on sexuality topics both domestic and abroad. While serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Rwanda she lived on a heath center compound and provided education on Depo-Provera and other contraceptives and barrier methods. Back state-side Shanae worked with Planned Parenthood of the Heartland as an educator and community mobilizer.
On her YouTube channel Honest Sex with Honestlynae, her mission is to provide normalization, explanation, and melanated representation. She takes this mission one step farther with the creation of The Chrysalis House, a sex-positive collaborative with the goal of supporting marginalized groups in Denver.
Shanae received her Master's in Clinical Counseling from Adams's State University in May 2020. Her practice M.A.I Therapeutic Services focuses on sex-positivity and trauma with the goal of helping people become the beings they desire to be.
