She’s pioneered social media strategies for the likes of Tesla, Apple and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Her latest project brings together sex education, toys and erotica (stay tuned). In honor of Valentine's Day, The Caret asked Maritza to chart a roadmap of the most titillating destinations in cyberspace. Read her XXX recommendations, below.

Instagram Erotica

"There's obviously no shortage of the genre. But some accounts stand out from the pack. Right now, my favorites are @mathmagazine (especially their Stories), @trashydirtypics (for vintage pics) and @lookatthispussy because, well, 'almost nothing is not a pussy.'"

XConfessions by ErikaLust

“Swedish feminist porn pioneer Erika Lust has initiated some interesting creative new approaches to porn. For her project XConfessions, she invites subscribers to submit their wildest sexual fantasies and then turns them into high-production short erotic films. The videos cost money to download/stream but, it’s a small price to pay for getting to watch your personal fantasies play out cinematically.”


"I recently discovered Dipsea, a new audio erotic fiction app for women. Stories are added weekly, range between five and 20 minutes long and feature straight and LGBT plotlines. Listen to your first three episodes free (I highly recommend 'Tulum')."


"The first smart vibrator, the Lioness uses sensors to track your arousal state and provide feedback on everything from motion to tension levels. Creators Anna Lee and Liz Klinger believe the better you understand how your body works, the better you'll be able to achieve blockbuster orgasms. Seems like sound logic to me."


"This app is generally considered the best out there for like-minded fetishists to connect. I personally haven't used it but I hear good things and with a reported half a million active users, even those with more eccentric kinks have a decent chance of finding a match."

"Debbie Does Dallas"

"It used to be that you had to go to a movie theater or stealthily purchase a VHS cassette to watch a full-length porn film. Now, thanks to the beauty of the internet, they're online. I don't know what it is about Debbie, but this classic is one of my ultimate favorite date-night get-offs."

The Sex Ed

"Liz Goldwyn is a sex maven (and a Dita Von Teese bestie). Her relatively new site and podcast cover a range of sex and wellness topics, from the 14 unique types of orgasms to just what exactly qualifies as 'normal' in the bedroom."

"La Maison du Rouge"

"This is a great BDSM-focused Periscope show starring dominatrixes Lucy Sweetkill and Dia Dynasty. Karley Sciortino is a fan too."

The "Roo" Chatbot

"Planned Parenthood just launched this a few weeks ago and it's still in its infancy, but Roo is essentially a chatbot for sex ed questions. Send it to every teen you know."
