“I was always considered a “bad girl.” With that label, I carried around feelings of shame and unworthiness and attracted relationships that confirmed those beliefs. After reading Happy, Sexy, Shameless I’m starting to re-think the standards of “bad girl” vs “good girl” and realize that no matter what label I'm branded with, it doesn't define who I am. I’m me, and I'm worthy of love and respect. Thank you Shasta for exploring and bringing to light this important issue.” – K.L.

“This work is so needed for both men and women. It was not overwhelming or judgemental but kind, compassionate and empowering. I felt like I was having a conversation with the author. Although the subject matter is female sexuality, I felt like I could apply this to many aspects of the being a women and life in general. I have been blessed to be in a wonderful relationship with my husband and this book not only affirmed that but gave me tools to make our relationship grow as our life changes. Thank you Shasta for your courage to empower females (and males) in their sexuality and life.” – Sarah
“Happy, Sexy, Shameless is really making me ask some important questions on how I view myself and my intimate life. Ever since having a baby I felt some shame around wanting to be sexy. Society makes me feel like I need to change. This book is helping me realize that I don't need to change. It has really given me a new sense of empowerment.” – Candace.
“I found myself reading and nodding, smiling and most often, wishing that someone had given me this book to read when I was a teenager trying to make some sense of it all because of course, my mother did not talk about the birds and the bees! Please, take the time to read Shasta’s book for your own sake and then pass it on to all the young people in your life! It WILL make a difference in your life, in their lives and in all our connections to one another. -ALG.
“You are so amazing. I just loved the book! At first I actually started to feel a bit resistant to it as I realized I had never felt that level of acceptance before. Thank you for writing it. It was such an important message for me. I am a recovering sex addict and since my recovery started I have had a constant battle with forgiving my behavior, and accepting that I still want to be sexual. Sex hasn't exactly become “bad” for me, but I do resist instinct and urges often. You're book reopened the conversation for me. This is a huge step for me.” -Amanda
I'm a man and I couldn’t put it down! This is a must read for all. It takes years to learn what Shasta presents through personal experience, research, human interest story, opinion and humour. It reminds me that sex better be better for your partner or it will not be happening again! Have your significant other read it too ladies and start talking.” – G.R.
I am only in the middle of you book Happy, Sexy and Shameless and I have to say that I am loving every bit! It's amazing how by answering the Self Enquiry Questions I can reflect upon myself and the evolution of my healing process… I am happy to see that we are all on the same quest for more authenticity and freedom!!- A.M.
