Dr. Tanaya is a medic who is passionate about sexual and reproductive health, and likes to put the ‘fun’ in fundamental sex ed! Having amassed almost a million followers, she focuses on busting sexual health myths, and creating candid, engaging, & informative conversations around these “shushed” topics.
