Rachel Shatto


Rachel is a sex and dating writer at Elite Daily, where she contributes the articles that, honestly, she wishes she had read herself sooner. She's also got the stars covered — of both the Hollywood and astrological variety — with her celebrity dating and zodiac pieces, as well as tales of her own oh-so-Virgo struggles. Rachel is an SF Bay Area-based writer, sewist, podcaster, and former managing editor of Curve magazine, where she honed her passion for writing about social justice and sex — and their frequent intersection. Her work has appeared on Tecca and Joystiq, and she podcasts regularly about horror through the feminist perspective on the Zombie Grrlz Horror Podcast, Stream Queens, and The Cast of Ka. She can’t live without cats, vintage style, video games, drag queens, or the oxford comma (in that order). When she isn't watching horror movies, you can find her hunting down vintage hats and sewing herself a new wardrobe to match.
