Welcome to episode 168 of the Sexology Podcast! Today it’s my pleasure to welcome Andrea Barrica to the podcast. In this episode Andrea speaks to me about the sex tech revolution, overcoming negative stigma around sexual wellness and why we need more advocacy in this area.  

  

Andrea Barrica is CEO and Founder of O.school, a judgment-free media platform to learn about sexuality and pleasure. As a queer woman of color, she’s been fighting to bring more humanity to the tech industry, and her mission is to create the world’s most trusted sexual wellness brand to help people increase their sexual health, power, and confidence. Previously, Andrea co-founded the leading financial solution for growing startups, inDinero.com, which now employs 150+ employees globally. She also served as a venture partner at 500 Startups, a global venture capital fund, where she worked with hundreds of startup companies.  

  

Andrea was raised in a religious, conservative Filipino family that only taught abstinence and she only had fear-based sex education in public schools. Seeking support and information, Barrica could not find reliable resources and experienced harassment online. Determined that no one else should have to struggle like she did, Barrica launched O.school in 2017 to change the way people learn about sexuality.

  • How can sex tech improve women’s sex lives?
