Kate McCombs

Hello Fellow Sex Geeks!

I’m Kate McCombs and I specialize in sex-positive and pleasure-inclusive approaches to sexual health promotion. I’m originally from California, but I moved to Australia to get my Masters in Public Health at the University of Melbourne, which I completed in 2011.

When I’m not facilitating sexuality workshops, I do research on sexual and reproductive health and I write about sex and relationships. I’m also the Managing Editor and a contributor for, a sexuality education blog run by Debby Herbenick, PhD at Indiana University.

I love connecting with other sex geeks, which inspired me to found earlier this year. Sex Geekdom is designed to bridge the gap between online and real-life community for sex educators, researchers, and others who might identify as sex geeks. Currently, Sex Geekdom meetups now happen in Melbourne, Sydney, and Los Angeles. Meetups range from regular after-work Friday drinks, to once-off group outings to sex-related seminars, movies, or festivals.

If you’d like to contact me, you can find me on twitter @katecom and @sexgeekdom, or you can email me at
