Sexuality Breathes Life into the Revolution

By |December 2nd, 2016|Sexual Politics & Culture|0 Comments

We like to categorize and compartmentalize nearly everything. It can help us manage the many parts of our life rather than feel lost in all of it and it can sometimes prevent some of the overwhelm that otherwise shows up. Yet life is interconnected, as are all the pieces of our lives. As I listened [...]

On Wednesday, November 9 half of our country was stunned by the dreaded and realized result that Donald Trump was now our President-elect.   Every woman who ever stood for something felt the deep sting Secretary Clinton experienced, as she stood and faced us in her concession speech. It was a powerful moment. We know [...]

Predatory Behavior All Women Know

By |October 21st, 2016|Advocacy, Politics, Sexual Politics & Culture|0 Comments

Last week’s debate was disturbing on many levels. The way Donald Trump loomed menacingly over Hillary Clinton, using threatening body language and posturing chilled most women to the bone. Why? Because we all know what that predation feels like. Watching it on a presidential debate struck a deep chord in many women’s psyches that set [...]

Donald Trump, Sexual Agency & Entitlement to Women’s Bodies

By |October 14th, 2016|Advocacy, Sexual Politics & Culture|0 Comments

This week inarguably marked one of the most inflammatory moments of any political campaign we’ve seen in this country since Watergate. Donald Trump's abhorrent, flippant comments about women and our bodies, and his braggadocio on-camera claims to his ability to sexually assault women because he is a “star” are the linchpin for his demise. His [...]

Why I’ve Had Over 1,000 Pelvic Exams

By |October 7th, 2016|Advocacy, Education, Politics, PROJECTS, Sexual Politics & Culture|0 Comments

From 2001 to 2011, I had the distinctively unique position of teaching medical and nursing students, and occasionally residents, in every major medical institution in New York City how to give proper breast and pelvic exams.

The Vulvalution Must Be Televised!

By |September 16th, 2016|Advocacy, Education, Sexual Health|0 Comments

Every time I teach a group of women about their sexual bodies, genitals and pleasure, I am reminded how revolutionary it is (still) to talk about our bodies in a sex-positive way because we just do not have the role modeling for it. If you do not partner with other people with vulvas, when do [...]

4 Common Reasons People Have Affairs (and How to Recover Afterward)

By |September 7th, 2016|Pleasure & Desire, Relationships, Uncategorized|0 Comments

As a sexual empowerment coach, I get to hear a lot about people’s private sexual lives and the things they don’t usually talk about—not even to their partners. Many people have come out to me as having had affairs. I can often hear their voices shake a little in wanting to tell the truth, to [...]

Desire is the Excitement of Possibility

By |September 2nd, 2016|Pleasure & Desire, Sexual Growth|0 Comments

I constantly observe people I work with struggle about saying “yes” to what they want in their own lives, and how often people work against their own desires.  When life presents you with the next step, the next stage or thing, you can’t fight it, or you end up fighting against your own life. Your [...]

The Magical Qualities Every Teacher Needs

By |August 19th, 2016|Education, Workshops|0 Comments

It seems that more than ever, we have incredible tension between taking time for ourselves - to be quiet and to connect inwardly and to contemplate - and to be out in the world with others, staying busy and doing things. In our personal growth, we need time alone and with ourselves, and time with [...]
