About Eileen Kelly

There are plenty of topics people shy away from, but Eileen Kelly prefers to steer right into the eye of the storm. At just 21 years of age, Eileen has played an important role in opening up discussions about sex and other topics “we’re told not to talk about, but desperately need to know.” Founder of the blog The Killer And A Sweet Thang, the Seattle native believes that we would all benefit from removing the stigma from taboo topics like sex, love, identity, and health. Her work has earned her 400K+ Instagram followers, even leading to a partnership with Sustain, a 100% organic, non-toxic, vegan sexual health brand. Her upwards trend led to a fall 2017 interview with Paper magazine, who dubbed her the “Sex Educator for a New Age.”
