Media: Want to connect with Scarleteen?

Media contacts:

  • For queries about print or internet interviews or quotes, or use of our data or observations for research, please contact Heather Corinna or Sam Wall.
  • For queries from television and video, please contact Sam Wall.
  • For queries about radio, podcasts or other media, or about the history of Scarleteen, please contact Heather Corinna.

We've a few hard limits:

  • Due to a small but active amount of staff and resources, we lack the ability to do any travel for media without coverage of travel expenses. As well, we usually cannot participate in any media that requires a response or appearance from us within less than 48 hours.
  • We will not share any personally identifying information about our readers or direct service users.
  • We will not be part of any media in which young people are being shamed or demonized around sexuality (and you are asking or expecting us to get us on board with that). Also: screw you.
  • We will not participate in any interviews or media in which the aim is to cultivate harassment against us or the people we serve. Also: screw you, too.

Who's been talking about sex education at Scarleteen?


Some organizations, magazines/newspapers, authors and others who have featured, suggested, advocated, included, cited from or linked to Scarleteen include:


If you appreciate and value what we do here at Scarleteen, you can make a difference by helping to sustain us. Because we are an entirely independent organization, working in an incredibly controversial arena (and all the more so because we're fully inclusive and progressive), staying afloat is a real challenge for us. You can help keep Scarleteen thriving by making a personal donation, buying copies of our young adult sexuality guide for yourself or to donate to public/school libraries, health centers or other venues, purchasing books and products from Amazon through links here, buying advertising at Scarleteen, volunteering some of your time and just getting the word out to others about what we do here and how valuable it is
