CTV Morning Show Edmonton

While in Edmonton, City TV invited me onto their set (Live) for the morning show to discuss ethical non monogamy and my work with Taboo.  Here is the link to the archived interview.

Before heading off to work my ass off teaching 22 classes for the 2012 Taboo Sex Show Calgary and Edmonton editions, I was interviewed briefly by phone as part of this lovely little article.  Enjoy!

Alternatives to monogamy - Vancouver Sun Article

Last month a lovely woman by the name of Erika Thorkelson contacted me and asked if she could interview me on non monogamy.  Before agreeing to talk further with her, I checked in to see what angle her story was coming from as I wanted to ensure we were discussing "ethical" non monogamy. Seeing as Erika was writing a small article on such a juicy topic, I found myself willing to give her some of my time.

"From her office in Coquitlam, Skrukwa counsels couples on ethically opening up their relationships. She advocates keeping lines of communication open to a partner’s desires without judgment."



Read the rest of this interview here.

The article was written for the entertainment section and led to my being offered a new job contract discussing open relationships in the Post Secondary School System.   

Read over what was written and if after reading you become inspired to want to talk with me about your relationship style, non monogamy, opening up a pre existing relationship, or how to move forward to find a partner, this would be a wonderful time to make contact.

Skrukwa counsels couples on ethically opening up their relationships. She advocates keeping lines of communication open to a partner’s desires without judgment.


Currently I am offering 60 minute phone calls for only $50 for Relationship Talk.  We can talk alone, or you can have your partner on the line as well. 

Deciding to do anything other than monogamy can be daunting, however with a little sexpert help, I can assist you in making the process easier to navigate and understand.

Test for HIV in the Privacy of Your Home

I know I would use a home HIV test and I know that people, many many people, would also welcome this.  Finally, a chance to take further responsibility for ones own health and for access to be even more possible to others.  A home HIV test is to be celebrated and I am clapping madly right now.



News like OraQuick, the HIV test that was recently unanimously approved by the FDA for over-the-counter use.

OraQuick, produced by the Pennsylvania-based pharmaceutical company OraSure Technologies, is the first rapid HIV testing product available in the United States for receiving instant results at home. Traditionally, to get an HIV test, one would have to go to a doctor’s office or sexual health clinic, have their cheeks swabbed for saliva samples or have a blood sample taken, or else purchase a kit to take their own sample at home and send the results into a lab for testing. Results, depending on the procedure and the sophistication of the laboratory interpreting the results, could take anywhere from sixty seconds to several weeks. OraQuick, however, utilizes similar measures taken in a clinical setting—the test itself is one of the rapid tests used by medical professionals in their offices—but without the visit to the doctor.

To take an OraQuick test, individuals swab their upper and lower gums and insert the sample into a vial of test fluid, all provided by the test. If they test positive for HIV, two colored lines develop on the test strip—similar to a home pregnancy test—after 20 to 40 minutes. Also included in the package is an information booklet that directs test-takers to call the OraQuick HIV support center (available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and bilingual in English and Spanish) for counselling on their test results and referrals to further medical services.

The test has a high rate (99.98%) of specificity, meaning that it accurately produces a negative result when the test taker is HIV-negative almost 100% of the time; its sensitivity—the number of cases where the test will show a positive result when the individual is HIV-positive—is less high with a percentage of 92.98%. In practice, the FDA estimates that this means that the test would come back positive for one person out of 5000 who was actually HIV-negative, while it could show as many as one out of every 12 HIV-positive test-takers as negative for the virus.

While the rate of false negatives is not insubstantial, the FDA reported in their approval that they did not believe this was a reason not to approve the test. They believed that its over-the-counter availability would make the test much more accessible to individuals who might never otherwise choose to get tested, and so could still substantially contribute to determining previously unknown cases of infection.

As a product that could soon be available in such mainstream locations as CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart, this new test has the potential to remove a number of the barriers that currently exist to prevent individuals from getting tested. For many, these include an inability to visit the doctor for a variety of reasons—lack of health insurance, cannot take time off of work, cannot find childcare—and the stigma of visiting a sexual health or HIV clinic.

At the same time, however, there are still a number of challenges individuals might face in attempting to access OraQuick over-the-counter. Because of the intense stigma that individuals with HIV/AIDS are burdened with, and because of the fear and misunderstanding of the conditions and methods of transmission, asking for or even being seen with an HIV test might be too large a feat for many individuals. As well, there are financial issues to consider as the home test is more expensive than the one that is sold to medical professionals; while the latter costs $17.50, the former is expected to be higher in price, up to $60. Though this price increase is stated by the company to pay for the additional costs of the trained, around the clock hotline, it may still be too costly for many of those most in need of the tests.

Additionally, though this point has appeared nowhere in the discussions of this over-the-counter test development, it should be noted that it is conceivable that, as has happened with the over-the-counter availability of emergency contraception, pharmacies might attempt to use “conscience clauses” as a means of not offering the test. Because of HIV’s link with sexual activity and intravenous drug use, as well as its stereotypical ties to the gay male community, religious or conservative providers may decide not to carry the test, thus further limiting individuals’ abilities to access HIV testing.

The OraQuick test is not perfect: the higher rate of false negatives is concerning in that individuals may believe themselves to be uninfected and go on to become sick or infect more people through their ignorance, and the access issues are real. However, if this test can be used to bring more individuals into the doctor’s office, and if it can open conversations between patients and their providers or individuals and their partners, it will be performing a great service. If its availability can normalize this aspect of sexual health even a little bit, or can make individuals less afraid of doing what is healthy for them because they are concerned about who might find out, it will be an important moment in the history of sexual health in this country. Testing is one of the primary means of fighting HIV infection, and this test’s ability to bring more people more knowledge about their status has the potential to identify thousands of additional cases of HIV each year, bringing people towards the proper safer sex and health-promoting strategies they should practice to keep themselves healthy.

Couples & Women: SULTRY Bathhouse Party Sat. March 31

Dear Passionate Lover,

DON'T MISS SULTRY, this month, we are holding oil wrestling matches between women who so desire to take on the challenge. This will be one slippery sexy activity to witness live.

The bathhouse party that so many talk about with such rave reviews is my favorite event. Sultry is going to be an incredible night out, and it's next Saturday, you must purchase your tickets in advance, there are none available at the door. It's a bathhouse party open to couples and single women only, sensually erotic. Currently tickets are at 45% sold, and last month we sold all but seven.


Now is the time to purchase tickets for Sultry, our steam, sex and sauna party. An evening for the playfully adventurous: Just you and a whole posse of other exciting people, locked in for an evening of debauchery and being silly. With saunas, showers, play rooms, and massage tables, the stage is set for sensual, sexual, and fun games. Write me for tickets and the rest of the juicy details.

Here are a couple of links to writings that past attendees of this great night have written

http://libidoevents.blogspot.com/2008/05/from-new-couple.html
http://sweatshopsissy.com/index.php/2010/09/sultry/

In January, a single woman who attended for the first time (and was one of many single women attending) wrote this to me ...

"The vibe at Sultry was incredible! I will probably sound like I am gushing but I have to say that I have a perfect evening. I couldn't have hoped for more. The people were very interesting and a very cool cross-section of ages, genders, personal styles. I even got to talk hockey in one of the saunas! Seriously awesome.

The ground rules were clear and easy to understand. The environment was completely enticing and playful. I think that my favourite thing about Sultry is that the mood was so playful and silly. I laughed and smiled throughout the entire evening.

I only participated in 2 of the games... car wash and then body paint. After that... I got entirely distracted with play and time flew by... I walked to my car with a grin ear to ear and I'm fairly sure that I fell asleep still smiling.

My least favourite part? Lol... the only thing that I didn't enjoy was having it end! I honestly can not think of a single thing that I did not thoroughly enjoy.

Sultry was simply amazing to me... I got to spend several hours with wet, soapy naked people... I got to watch some very hot things happening around me... I got to touch and be touched... I got to laugh and be silly and playful... I got to experience sexual pleasure and offer it to others..."
