Q) What are your pronouns and how do you sexually identify?
Q) What currently turns you on in life and in the bedroom?
Full presence. Playfulness. Someone dominating me. Gentle touch. Massage. Spontaneity. Keeping to your word.
Q) What was the main message about sex and sexuality that you received growing up?
Q) How did you begin to explore and establish your own beliefs around sex and sexuality?
I began reading Tantric Orgasm for Women by Diana Richards and Tantric Orgasm for Men by DR & Michael Richardson. Which lead to work with different sacred sexuality teachers. My own self practice when I’ve purchased from Yoni Pleasure Palace.
Q) If you had the chance, what would you tell your younger self about sex and self pleasure now?
I would say to myself - “it’s okay for your to feel good and desire for pleasure, but make sure it’s honouring you and your boundaries first. Then it’ll always be a good time."
Q) How & when did you first find/discover/explore your genitals and the pleasure you could receive?
I was around 9 - and I just remember masturbating for the first time and having my first orgasm while no one was home.
Q) What tips do you have for people who want to clear and release held sexual shame from their body?
Q) What do your self-care rituals look like for you on a daily basis?
For me it’s prayer, meditation, reading, moving my body, a pleasure practice (not always sexual) and connection with a trusted friend or mentor.
