Hosted by: Frenchie Davis
Frenchie Davis is writer, performer, activist, up and coming Sex Health Pioneer.
In the early 90's she was coined the Erotic Poet Princess for her young profound take on Intimacy and Relationships. She is an internationally respected influential voice on Emotional Health and Sexuality. Her lectures, workshops and feature on HBO's Def Poetry Jam for her performance of her socially charged poem, "Fucking Ain't Conscious" has secured her as a household name in several arenas. Davis is one of the few women to spin Erotica into a career and maintain what she proudly refers to as "SexualIntegrity".
Flexing her diversity between the entertainment and professional dome she's lectured and performed at more than 50 universities and colleges across the United States, Germany, Canada and the UK; hosting poetry series throughout her hometown Detroit, Michigan and participating as the associate producer for Def Poetry Jam contest series in Detroit, Michigan.
As a writer and performer she has shared the stage with many greats opening for Trey Songz , Musiq, Common, Mos Def, Sonia Sanchez, Nikki Giovanni, The Last Poets, World African Festival of Detroit Michigan, Detroit Windsor Dance Company and many others but her most sacred stage is a classroom, community center, city council office or church where she discusses the decline of family, love, and sexual indiscretions infecting America.
Davis offers a platform about everyday concerns that make a historic sexual emotional impact. Her voice is firm, laughable, loveable, deliberate, tender grounded and at times devious.
Her quest to understand the social dynamics of American culture and intimacy has been her campaign throughout her diligent career which led her to the concrete jungle of New York. There she dove into the sacred phenomenon of HIV/AIDS by working at an AIDS Hospice, Bailey Holt House.
Continuing her development Frenchie served tenure as a Domestic Violence Crisis Shelter Manager for three years. Davis currently heads and directs a Risky Behavior Prevention program in Washington, DC.
Being deeply affected by the victims and survivors of AIDS and the children and families that lived with her at the shelter- the hope to promote Emotional Health became her urgency and promise. Frenchie is a specialist in Emotional Health pursuing her studies for an Educational Doctorate in Human Sexuality.
She is certified in HIV testing a specialist in Sexual Reproductive Anatomy and Puberty, Abstinence, Teen Sexuality and promoting healthy relationships among adolescent youth and adults.
Whether she's on a couch, in a classroom, on a stage or radio show you'll be contaminated by the love and unconventional wisdom she's certain to spread. Frenchie is certain to revolutionize how we perceive ourselves and sexuality within and at large.
