The belief that human beings -- throughout their lives -- deserve to have access to accurate information about their bodies and sexuality drives much of Debby Herbenick's work. Among her greatest passions is translating sexual science to the general public through teaching, books, columns, podcasts, television, social media, blogging, crafting, public art, and her latest project: Make Sex Normal. Herbenick is a research scientist at Indiana University's School of Public Health-Bloomington, co-director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion, and sexual health educator at The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. The author of five books about sex and love, her latest is "Sex Made Easy: Your Awkward Questions Answered for Better, Smarter, Amazing Sex" (Running Press, 2012). She is also one of the lead investigators of the largest nationally representative studies about sex in America, the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior. @DebbyHerbenick

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
