Linda Kirkman


Sexuality educator and researcher Linda Kirkman has investigated sexuality, sexual health, and social change in relationships through teaching, academic research and life experiences. Through teaching and writing, she advocates for awareness of and respect for diversity in sexuality, gender and relationships.

Linda was Australia’s first woman to give birth via IVF surrogacy in 1988. Her Masters in Health Science looked at the effectiveness of sexual health promotion to young adults and she is a PhD candidate exploring rural baby boomers in friends-with-benefits relationships (which include consensual non-monogamy and polyamory). Linda is a proud sex geek and lives in Central Victoria.
