Laura Gardner guest writer headshot
Laura Gardner, Mental Health Advocate & Sex Positive Columnist

Wellington, New Zealand

Laura (she/her) is a bisexual, plus-size, neurodiverse, sex-positive writer with a passion for open sexual discourse and education. She enjoys learning and sharing about all things sex in order to help dismantle the taboos and insecurities that burden our modern society, moving towards a more expressive and healthy sexual expression for all. She is an advocate for sex positivity, body inclusivity, mental health, and the LGBTQIA+ community.

Based in Wellington, New Zealand, she enjoys writing about topics that she feels will resonate with others on their own journeys of sexuality, bringing others along as she explores her own relationship with all things sex. She is specifically interested in writing about sex toys, kink, and the ties between sex and mental health. She looks forward to sharing her experiences, and hopes that it encourages others to experiment and do the same!

In her spare time Laura can be found reading, dyeing her hair, performing in musicals, or cuddling her three cats - she believes ‘crazy cat lady’ to be an entirely accurate and complimentary moniker, and refuses to be convinced otherwise.
