Stella, l’amie de Maimie is a non profit organization by and for sex workers. It was created in 1995 through the initiative of a handful of sex-workers, public-health researchers and allies. The first team consisted of four employees, a handful of volunteers and sympathizers. Their efforts have resulted in a unique, constantly developing resource, always blooming and filled with surprises. Today, on average twelve women work full-time for Stella and their membership continues to grow.

It is the highest-ranked website for sex education and sexuality advice online and has held that rank through most of its tenure.I was happy to support the website as a Sexpert and message board moderator in Scarleteen’s early years and consider their founder Heather Corinna a mentor and good friend.
