I met Olivia Richman in a 7 month leadership training program that we’re both in at the moment her in NYC. This woman is a powerhouse. She is so bright, full of light and brings power, strength, confidence and humor to her YouTube channel GlamourPuss, M.D. to share Sex Ed with teens and adults. 

Olivia decided to launch GlamourPuss, M.D. when she realized how little factual information was available to her younger cousins about sex, their bodies, and issues for younger girls like how to put in a tampon. 

I highly recommend this episode for teens and adults! It is fun, insightful and witty. Enjoy Episode 77 with GlamourPuss, M.D. Olivia Richman!!
