Pronouns: she/her   ·   Twitter: @NinaLand

Nina Hartley, RN, started her award-winning career in adult entertainment on stage in 1982 and on screen in 1984. Her deep understanding of sexuality in all its manifestations comes from practice, not theory. A pioneer of “feminist porn,” her career spans the end of film to the Internet as the main avenue for accessing explicit material. A fierce advocate for sexual freedom as a fundamental human right, Nina sits on the board of the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance (www.woodhullalliance.org). She regularly speaks around the country, and the world, educating people on the importance of sexual sanity, literacy, pleasure, compassion and health. Her book, “Nina Hartley’s Guide to Total Sex” (Avery Press, 2006), is a companion to her 40-volume DVD sex-ed series from Adam&Eve (the “Nina Hartley Guides”). She lives in Los Angeles. She continues her advocacy for sexual wellness through her SFW site, nina.live.
