MIAMI — Jet Setting Jasmine and King Noire will be appearing at the Sexual Health Alliance (SHA) conference tomorrow and Saturday.

According to a rep, the conference aims “to train sex therapists, sex educators and professionals on issues that create barriers to clients in alternative lifestyle relationships, those who are sex workers and/or members of marginalized communities, preventing them from having healthy and genuine relationships with mental health providers.”

The conference, the rep continued, “will challenge providers to assess their own biases and undertaking of stigma towards clients with different backgrounds, professions and lifestyles, issues which may taint their ability to provide comprehensive ethical care.”

“Students will learn directly from sex-positive professionals — including sex workers, medical providers and attorneys — to be best positioned at supporting their clients.”

SHA will also offer two full scholarships to the Black Indigenous People of Color Adult Industry Collective (BIPOC-AIC) to pursue a career in sex therapy, education and/or consulting.

“This negotiation is in full concert with King and Jasmine’s efforts to direct sex workers toward opportunities to pursue longevity in the sex industry, given that their lived skills, knowledge and abilities are very much transferable to the mainstream therapeutic space,” the rep added.

Experiential and Intimate

Jet Setting Jasmine said that “it feels right to have people that want to serve our community and or educate others about sex and sexuality actually learn from people that are living the life.”

“As a psychotherapist myself, I know that some of the best education I received was experiential and intimate with the population I wanted to help,” she added. “I am also thrilled that we have an opportunity to offer other sex workers this scholarship that can add another dimension to their careers. Sustaining oneself in the sex industry is so important, as many have found that trying to shift into mainstream work is often met with stigma and unsatisfactory ways of earning a living.”

“I want to see people be able to use their skill sets long into their retirement,” Jet Setting Jasmine added.

An SHA spokesperson said the conference is “beyond excited to welcome Jasmine into the SHA family. We fell in love with her instantly with her work and wisdom surrounding unconventional clients and therapeutic approach.

“This is one conference you do not want to miss,” they added. “Jasmine will do a deep dive into the hottest topics facing your clients. This weekend will push your boundaries and help you grow into a ‘sexceptional’ professional.”
