Kim Anami, a Los Angeles-based sex educator, blogger, and world traveler, has been featured in Playboy TV’s Sexcetera and E!’s True Hollywood Stories. Her mission is to help make the world safer by promoting sexual health education through hands-on workshops, lectures, articles, and sex therapy.
Kim Anami is also an award-winning self-pleasure advocate who champions “self-love” as a healthy alternative to the obsession with youth culture. Having built her multi-million dollar business traveling the world while broadcasting live on the internet 24/7, Kim connects sexual pleasure with spirituality. As she says: “Self-love can be religious if you want it to be. Or it can be scientific. It can be holistic, or it can be verboten. I think it’s a free speech issue, and you don’t have to tailor yourself to anyone’s rules but your own.”
Anami hosts multiple webcam shows daily throughout the week, which has accumulated over 250 million views in just four years. Her weekly live webcast is seen by thousands of people worldwide, who tune in for her expert advice and advice about sex toys – the bestselling product she invented called Vibease (now part of Doc Johnson).
