Speaker @ The Intimate Revolution Symposium /  2021 – Present

Speaker @ TEDx Koenigsallee /  2019

‘Most people equate intimacy with sex but there is a whole range of possibilities that can bring us fulfillment. And while there are many tools for personal growth that help us to be healthier or more productive, we often lack the means to specify the level of intimacy we want. Wilrieke designed her cuddle workshops to teach people how to understand their needs and boundaries so that they become more comfortable with intimacy. Wilrieke’s talk will reveal the empowerment, confidence, and happiness we stand to gain when we design our own ways of being intimate.’

Contributing Author @ Stories from the Polycule (Edited by DR. Elisabeth Sheff) /  2015

‘Sheff (The Polyamorists Next Door) has collected an array of essays, poems, and drawings about polyamory (multiple committed romantic relationships, not to be confused with sex-only swinging) in this interesting compendium, along with a piece about her own experiences with the practice,’ Publishers Weekly.

Contributed two chapters to this first of its kind anthology of people living in consensual non-monogamous relationships.
