Laura-Doe wrote and performed her first one-woman show, a feminist commentary entitled ‘The Dangers of Being a Princess’ at the age of 9. It took four decades for her second work, “Vaudeville of the Vulva”, to emerge but in the meantime she has kept herself busy honing her performance skills as a lecturer, corporate trainer, actress and MC, developing her singing talents by writing and performing with The Voices of Gaia and being generally hilarious in the privacy of her own home.
Her interest in effective communication led her to a career as an educator which has spanned two continents and both the academic and corporate worlds. After leaving University she worked as a research assistant conducting and analyzing detailed interviews with people whose parents had been alcoholics. By the age of 28 she was a Senior Lecturer at North London University.
Moving to Australia in the late 80’s she worked for Apple Computer as a Training Manager, teaching Presentation Skills and Effective Writing to upper management. Whilst with the company she also studied Accelerated Learning and NLP in order to refine her communication skills and incorporate the latest innovative methods into their training programs.
Very much at home on any stage, Laura-Doe has a natural talent for acting and comedy. She has been involved in theatre productions since school and trained in the 90’s with Penelope Chater, who has offered invaluable directorial advice on the ‘Vaudeville of the Vulva’ productions to date.
A professional somatic sexologist and sexual health activist, Laura-Doe is passionate about supporting women and men to understand and appreciate their unique erotic nature and to respect the beauty and power of their sexual energy. Two decades ago she first published yOni.com, a women’s e-zine that has been celebrating the feminine amidst the rather masculine world of the internet since its early days. More recently she founded The yOniversity, providing sexual education workshops and sessions, both online and in person. She creates and distributes the Vulvalicious® Cushions anatomically accurate 3D fabric art pieces and has recently completed an entertaining and informative DVD, The Art & Science of Female Arousal, essential education for all women and those who love them.
