Here at Lovehoney.com, we've been lucky enough to catch up with Violet Blue: award-winning journalist, author, editor, adviser and educator.

Q: How did your career begin, and when did you decide to professionally write about sex and work in sex education?
A: My writing career began early, as I was published in local papers and online publications from 1996, but it wasn't until I was hired at a sex toy company as their Senior Copywriter in 1998 that I began to focus on writing about sex education, sex culture and writing about porn.
Going through sex educator training in 1998 made me realize that sex needed to be written about in a whole different way: sex-positive, accurate, and for all genders and sexual orientations.
