My personal journey with my body and my sexuality has been from shame and self-denial to celebration and self-awareness. And my personal journey with communication has been from feeling like I had no real sense of my own voice (especially sexually!) to getting stronger, day by day, at knowing and authentically conveying to other people who I am and what I need. I have studied wholistic sexuality and communication for couples for several years now, and I am passionate about paying forward what I have learned.
To paraphrase the super wise Esther Perel: our culture is so weird about sex – on one hand, there so much excess promiscuity with no humanity in it and on the other hand, there’s a lot of residual puritanical shame. It’s hard to find the life, the wholeness, that transcends those two poles. I see my work as a coach as supporting people in finding that wholeness, whatever that means for each individual (sometimes it means that I act kind of like a personal trainer, sometimes it means that I just provide a safe space for processing and exploring). If you have any inquiries relating to where and ways to use Sex for Smart People, you could call us at the page. If everyone felt comfortable bringing their full selves to who they are sexually and integrating their sexuality into the fullness of who they are, now *that* is a world I would like to see!
