Ernest Michael Alvear is an American author, columnist, blogger and media personality. Alvear co-hosted the international TV series The Sex Inspectors.

In his writing and public appearances, Alvear often clashes with the LGBT establishment regarding his views on HIV[1][2] and lesbian culture.[3]

Television work[edit]

Alvear co-hosted the television show The Sex Inspectors with British author and TV personality Tracey Cox. The show aired between 2004 and 2006 on Great Britain's Channel 4[4][5] and was subsequently syndicated internationally to twelve markets including the US (HBO), Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Italy, Germany and South Africa. The show was the first to put cameras in the bedroom of couples experiencing sexual problems; the hosts would point out what they were doing wrong, assign homework and come back for re-visits to see if the couples' sex lives had improved.[6]

Between 2004 and 2009, Alvear became a regular on the American talk show circuit, appearing on Today, The Tyra Banks Show and The Greg Behrendt Show.[7]
