I’m Jeana Jorgensen, scholar and dancer. Welcome to my professional website. Please look around and click on links to read my biography and my blog.

If you came here because you have one of my dance business cards, please note that I have a new website for my troupe, Indy Tribal, the American Tribal Style® Belly Dance troupe that I direct. You can click here for more information about my solo dancing.

I’m also a sex educator. You can find my professional sex ed site here: Sex Ed with Dr. Jeana. A lot of my sex ed blogging happens over at MySexProfessor.com, a blog published by a Kinsey Institute researcher about human sexuality. I write about gender roles, culture & sexuality, and feminist issues, as well as folklore topics that intersect with gender and sex.

I support Open Access scholarship. If you’d like to read my work but don’t have access to the journals or books in which it appears, let me know and we’ll work something out (I’m still exploring the legalities of this; I don’t believe I can post pdfs of my published work but surely it counts as fair use to share my work with interested individuals?).

Feel free to email me at jeanaj@gmail.com

I’m on Twitter as @foxyfolklorist
