Cory Silverberg‘s academic background is in education and counseling psychology (BA, hons., York University; M.Ed. Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto). His research interests were in the areas of sexuality and disability and sexuality and attachment theory.

Since 1997 he has developed and facilitated workshops for hundreds of agencies and organizations serving both youth and adults across North America on a range of topics including sexuality and disability, sexual pleasure, sexual communication, sex toys, and sex and technology. Cory has also delivered keynotes, lectures, and interactive public talks for professional conferences and student groups.

In 1997 he co-founded the Come As You Are Co-operative, the world’s only co-operatively owned and operated sex toy store and sexual health resource, in Toronto, Canada. He is the co-author of the Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability (Cleis Press, 2007) and since 2005 has been the Sexuality Guide for About.com.  In 2012 Cory developed a book project which became the most funded children’s book on Kickstarter, and subsequently signed a three book deal with Seven Stories Press to produce a series of inclusive children’s books about gender and sexuality.

Cory also worked as a consultant for both media and industry. For ten years he supervised research for SexTV, a multiple award winning, internationally syndicated documentary program that covers the topic of human sexuality around the globe, as well as being the sex toy wrangler for Talk Sex with Sue Johanson. He is a regular guest on Sex Matters, which airs on CTV, Canada’s largest television broadcaster, and a frequent contributor to local and national print, radio, and television media.

In addition to volunteering as the chairperson of the sexuality education certification committee for AASECT, Cory served on the board of ISIS, a nonprofit organization that combines new technologies with sexual health promotion and disease and violence prevention.
