THE FULL STORY
Cindy Luquin (she/her/ella/they) is a Certified Sex Educator and Creator of Howl at the Womb. She dedicates her time to sexually empower folks through culturally responsive sex education courses, workshops and conferences.
She earned a B.A. in Spanish Healthcare Interpretation and Translation from Cal-State University, Fullerton and a Masters in Latin American Studies from Cal-State University, Los Angeles. Her spark for teaching sex education was ignited after 15 years of working in the public education sector while developing her passion in the field of reproductive and sexual health. Her drive is rooted in her love for her Central American culture, family and community. Like many children of immigrants, she grew up in a religious conversative Latinx household where she witnessed and experienced firsthand how a lack of comprehensive sex education shaped and influenced critical thinking and attitudes. Through that witnessed domestic and gender-based violence, reproductive coercion, sexual assault, sexual shame, etc. Her creation, Howl at the Womb provides a welcoming, safe and encouraging space to destigmatize sex without shame. Cindy weaves academic research, ancestral healing wisdom and practices along with medically accurate sexual health education to provide culturally comprehensive sex education rooted in reproductive justice. It is her life’s work to dismantle sexual shame and guide communities and families toward building sex-positive generations. Cindy is available for speaking engagements, media appearances and educational services.
