Hanna Witton is an award-winning vlogger and influencer, with her vlogs attracting more than 24 million views on her official YouTube channel. After amassing an impressive following on her social media – 231,000 on Instagram, 128,000 on Twitter and 34,000 on Facebook – Hannah is regarded as one of the UK’s leading voices.
She uses her unique blend of positivity and expertise to talk about a range of topics including sex, relationships, feminism, body image, gender and sexuality. No topic is off limits and she has posted videos about her Colitis diagnosis and her first pregnancy, as well as documenting how being pregnant has affected her chronic illness.
Whilst she discusses a wide range of topics, Hannah Witton’s focus is on sex, sexual health and relationships. This focus stemmed from her studies, where she wrote her dissertation on the history of sexology and sex manuals. She is now an ambassador for leading sexual health charity Brook and was shortlisted for Young Person of the Year at FPA’s UK Sexual Health awards and scooped up the Best Sex and Relationships award at the Cosmopolitan influencer awards in 2016, as well as being shortlisted for the Best Vlog in 2014.
Additionally, Hannah was a finalist in the 2013 Guardian and Oxford University Press Very Short Film competition, where she submitted a short on “The History of Homosexuality”.
Hannah first began creating YouTube videos in 2011 with an aim to help young women with their relationships and sexual health. On the channel she explores topics including how to increase your sexual desire, period tracking apps and menstruation, sexuality and sensuality, dating, sex toys, contraception, pregnancy, gender identity, parenting, consent and sex and disability.
In 2017, Hannah released her debut book, Doing It, which was an educational, informative handbook for young people, exploring relationships, sex and dating from her own experiences. She followed this up in 2019 with The Hormone Diaries: The Bloody Truth About Our Periods, which covered experiences of menstruation and education around it.
In 2019, Hannah launched her podcast, Doing it With Hannah Witton, which focussed on sex, relationships, our bodies and taboos. The podcast was very successful and was nominated at the 2020 Global Awards. She is also a podcaster on Banging Book Club, where she and two other vloggers read books about sex and gender before discussing them, as well as on Deep Dive with Ali Abdaal where she spoke about sex and relationships.
In 2015, Hannah appeared on a TEDx talk titled What Internet Trolls Taught Me, which reached over 84,000 views on their YouTube channel.
Hannah is a highly sought-after expert speaker, moderator and host. In 2014, she moderated the gender panel at the Summer in the City event, and was named one of eight Girls’ Champions as part of the BBC’s 100 Women campaign in 2016.
