Have you or a woman in your life grown weary of the myth, confusion and shame that continues to swirl around female sexuality?
I know I was. A couple years ago I was just feeling angry, confused and plain disconnected from my self and my sexual identity. I had a deep spiritual practice but many of the classical traditions inferred that sex was a distraction and desire was a sign you were off the path. This just did not feel right to me. It felt like a denial of what seemed natural and delightful. It seemed to me that sex could be a celebration of life and even the Divine.
I was also fed up with the projections I was hanging onto that also felt really old. Some of these had come from my own upbringing, experiences, and beliefs. I wanted to let go of my hang-ups about my body, about intimacy, and about men. I was also ready to release my feeling that I was a bad-girl and maybe a bad feminist because I really liked sex. I wanted to heal the trauma of my past and step into a more powerful relationship with my own sense of happiness, sexiness, and shamelessness.
So I started asking questions of myself and of others. This led me to interview dozens of women and a few men about their sexual experiences, beliefs, and learning. In fact, it seemed there were a lot of women out there who, like me, wanted to feel happy, sexy, and shameless who were asking questions and who wanted to learn more.
I also studied a lot of current research on female sexuality that confirmed what my intuition and body were telling me—that female desire was normal. Lastly, I just experimented, practiced and figured my way into some amazing discoveries and powerful healings. I found ways to release (no pun intended) the judgment of myself and to integrate my sexuality as well as formulate what that looked like for me as a woman, on my terms and I started writing about it and it seemed people were interested. Really interested so I put it all together in a book called Happy, Sexy, Shameless – What Our Mother’s Didn’t Know About the Birds and the Bees. Though I still have a lot of questions and learning to do myself, I do feel I stepped into a conscious sexuality that is ripe and rich, and maybe in some small way all my questions, research, pain and struggle can help make another woman’s path a little lighter. I don’t purport to have all the answers here but if you take this journey, what lies ahead are some powerful excavations, joyful experiences and some great reflections.
So if you’d like to finally bust free from the hushed discussions, and be part of an open and authentic dialogue about what it means to be a free, sexual woman—then you’re about to discover an eye-opening book that completely reshapes the conversation.
