LAS VEGAS―AVN Media Network has announced that Emily Morse, sex expert and host of the top downloaded sex and relationship advice podcast Sex With Emily, will deliver the Keynote Address for the 2014 AVN Show.
The 2014 AVN Show takes place Jan. 15-18, 2014, at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas. The Keynote Address will take place Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014.
"I'm honored to be selected as the keynote speaker for the AVN Show in 2014,” Morse said. “The industry is moving in exciting directions, with greater acceptance of sex in mainstream culture. I look forward to sharing my experience growing a new media company over the past 10 years."
Morse will talk about her enthusiasm for the adult industry, and how she believes it’s a good time to be a part of the industry, in all aspects. As a brand and a business owner, Morse has personally overcome several obstacles, including a public that was not as open about sex and sexuality when she started her podcast.
As host of Sex With Emily, Morse has helped millions of people have the sex and relationships they want but could not figure out how to get. Emily has been voted the number one dating and sex expert by DatingAdvice.com and the number one dating and sex expert to follow on Twitter.
Morse launched the Sex with Emily radio show and podcast in 2005 before becoming a Bravo television personality on the reality TV show Miss Advised. She is dedicated to educating men and women about Kegel exercises (check out her iPhone App: Kegel Camp) and is the author of the popular book, Hot Sex: Over 200 Things You Can Try Tonight. Morse recently launched a new intimate care line, Emily & Tony, and is a weekly guest co-host on the nationally syndicated radio show Loveline with Dr. Drew Pinsky.
Emily earned her Doctor of Human Sexuality from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco and received her BA in psychology from the University of Michigan.
Prior to becoming a sex expert, Morse worked in politics as a campaign aide for California Senator Barbara Boxer and former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown. She also directed and produced the award-winning documentary See How They Run, which follows a notorious San Francisco mayoral race.
Morse has appeared as an expert on many television shows, including the Today Show, Dr. Drew HLN,The Doctors, Bravo TV, Inside Edition, E!, Style Network, Playboy Radio, Cosmo Radio and Candace Bushnell’s Show. She has also been featured in countless publications, including The New York Times,Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Detroit Free Press, Huffington Post, Glamour, CNN,USA Today, iVillage, Fitness, Cosmopolitan magazine, Men’s Health and Women’s Health.
“Sex educators are helping to shape the future of the adult business for both novelty products and content providers,” said Janet Gibson, COO of AVN. “We are excited Emily can bring her expertise and positive outlook on the future of our industry to our attendees.” In addition to the special Keynote Address taking place Thursday, January 16, 2014, the AEE/ANE educational schedule will include a number of equally thought-provoking seminars featuring many of the industry’s most successful company owners and executives.
