Biography: With a Bachelor degrees in English and Drama, a Masters in Journalism and Mass Communication, a PhD in Cultural Studies, and a soon-to-be conferred PhD in Communications, Ohh is an overeducated but down-to-earth intellectual and kinkster. She considers herself a kinky, semi-radical, sex-positive, poly-friendly, womanist scholar though most people mistake her for the girl-next-door. When she’s not hard at work expanding the minds of the nation through her academic work, you can find her reading comics, watching sci-fi, and generally geeking out, tying up and being tied up by those crazy, kinky people your parents warned you about, or plotting how best to execute her plan to become a modern day Amazon.

Specialties: Identity Studies (race, class, sexuality, and gender), Transnational Communication, Popular Culture, Media Studies/Theory, rope bondage, rough body play, role play, knife play, and overthinking simple things

Experience: Ohh has worked as an academic researcher and instructor, Marketing Director, and professional model at various points in her life. She currently works at a large university in Pittsburgh as a Communication professor. When she’s not fulfilling her academic role, she can be found pursuing her love of rope as a bondage model.
