“Bodysex has been empowering and life changing.” – Terrah
Do you ever look in the mirror and wish you liked your body more?
Do you sometimes hesitate to let your full sexual self out?
To surrender fully to pleasure or desire?
Or maybe you already feel like a badass sexually empowered beauty
But want to expand your potential even more and long for a place where that can be shared openly and celebrated!
Pleasure is natural and every body magnificent. Yet this world has given us a doozy of sexual shame, body shame, and countless scripts of how we’re supposed to look and behave sexually.
I have experienced this myself. And it led me to a work called Bodysex,which has helped me and countless others heal body and sexual shame. It liberated me from the social scripts and boxes, helped me discover genuine self-love and paved the way for me to claim my full orgasmic prowess.
And because of this, I want to share Bodysex with you too. This fall, I invite you to join the sacred circle of Bodysex, discover greater self-love and have your own transformation journey.
Bodysex is happening:
At a private location in Boulder, CO
What is Bodysex?
Bodysex is a transformative workshop for women and non-masculine identifying pussy-owners.
Bodysex is done in the nude, but is non-sexual. It is a sacred circle fostering deep community and an opportunity to get real together and let go of the boxes society put us into. The work is especially healing for body image issues, pleasure anxiety, and the ways society pits feminine people against each other in competition and comparison.
In Bodysex we go on a journey to discover our own power, beauty and uniqueness – and in that journey – come together deeply in community. We celebrate our bodies, pleasure and orgasm, and share honestly about times we haven’t felt so sure of ourselves. It’s healing and empowering.
Bodysex is for all stages of sexual growth and all walks of life. Many participants in my workshops have described it as the experience of a lifetime, touching and healing them in ways nothing else has.
I was trained by Dr. Betty Dodson, world renowned sex educator and orgasm expert, to lead Bodysex workshops. Her Bodysex method and pussy positive art has changed the lives of millions. She is an amazing leader in the field of sexuality and I am honored to be mentored by her and carry on this beautiful work in the world.

“Seeing that each body and each vulva is so unique… there really is no comparing one to another… in fact it seems incredibly pointless after seeing the variety… I feel the only thing I can do is appreciate each one as it is.” – Luna
“Bodysex exponentially impacted my orgasm.” – LB
How is Bodysex different than other sexuality workshops?
“I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand.” – Confuscious
Bodysex is very unique from other sexual empowerment workshops. Instead of theory, it is rooted in experiencing the empowerment journey. Instead of just *talking* about healing and transformation, you bring it into reality, upgrading your body image and orgasmic prowess. It also touches places traditional teaching, books and coaching can’t because of the power of shared vulnerability and community.
Another thing that sets Bodysex apart is most workshops and teachings are focused on pleasure with another person.
Bodysex teaches you how to own your orgasm and embrace pleasure for yourself, not just for others. We learn how to have sex on our OWN terms. And from that foundation, our capacity for pleasure with others expands exponentially.

What we do:
Bodysex contains four cornerstone experiences that take us on the journey of loving ourselves more fully. We go through and GROW through these experiences over the course of the weekend, and the power and safety of the circle holds space for us in the transformation.
The cornerstone experiences of the Bodysex circle are:
- Circle Sharing: Getting real and sharing our stories of our bodies and orgasm
- Genital-Show-And-Tell: A deeply healing and sacred ritual honoring the beauty and uniqueness of each of our vulvas.
- Erotic Recess: A free-form time where we practice self-pleasure in the circle. It begins with guided instruction and then transitions into solo-practice. Erotic Recess is relaxed and light hearted. We play music and the women help themselves to snacks and chat between orgasms. It’s all about owning your orgasm without judgment. The power of group self-pleasure is mind-blowing and difficult to describe. It’s many attendee’s favorite part of the weekend.
- Group Non-sexual Massage: The opportunity to be nurtured through loving touch without it being something sexual. Here you get to receive without feeling you need to give anything or perform! This is my personal favorite part.
“Two words, erotic recess. Yes! need I say more? Ok so when talking to my friends about this, whoa, I feel so empowered. 8 women laughing, orgasming, crying and loving. More gatherings such as these need to happen. Thank you.” – LB
When I attended my first Bodysex workshop a few years ago, I was struck by the power of this work and the broad effect it had on my life. I left the workshop with a new sense of my own beauty as a sexual woman and in awe of the beauty of all other human creatures. Bodysex helped me overcome a lot of shame about being ‘too skinny’ as well as my fear the other women there would not be able to accept me for it. After the workshop, I went home feeling empowered to ask for what I want with my partner and had my first big clitoral orgasm with him. For years that had been something I had only been able to do on my own and both the practical learning as well as the work helping me overcome pleasure anxiety opened me up to more pleasure with my partner.
The sense of awe for my own body, it’s beauty, power and uniqueness, as well as the empowerment in my pleasure and orgasm, rippled into the rest of my life to help me show up more fully how *I* wanted to. The other Bodysex workshops I took following that one built upon and continued my growth into liberated self-acceptance, love and freedom. It was so healing for me that when I experienced it, I knew right away it was something I wanted to bring home to offer to my community.
The funny thing is, before my first Bodysex, I would have told you I didn’t really need to improve on my body image and that I had it pretty figured out sexually. But even with all the growth I had done, being in the group unlocked a whole new layer of healing, pleasure and empowerment. That was a beautiful experience and why I say it is for all who are willing.
I’ve written about the Bodysex workshops I’ve facilitated here and here. And shared a story from the first one I attended here. I encourage you to take a look as they will give you a deeper taste of what the work is like.
What if I’m on my period?
That’s absolutely ok! Every workshop someone is on their period, including even possibly me. Many use tampons or you can use a natural sea sponge tampon, diva cup OR simply an extra towel or two under you as protection. Let me know if you need anything like that and I will be more than happy to help.
What if I have a yeast infection?
No big deal. You can take some oil of oregano in water before you head over to the workshop and you can bring it with you to take throughout the day, just for one idea. It’s a powerful natural anti-microbial and knocks it down fast. If you need pain and irritation relief, any drug store carries great over-the-counter medication that helps with that. If you have any questions or concerns before the workshop, reach out to me and I’ll help.
What if I can’t orgasm?
The second day we learn about and practice self-pleasure techniques during a free-form time called Erotic Recess. There are no goals or requirements other than to give pleasuring yourself a go. No need to worry if you can orgasm or not, or even if you have never had one before. My orgasm can be shy at times too. This time is all about pleasure, and with yourself – not performance. Some attendees who have never had orgasms have their first one in the workshop.
Where can I stay if I’m traveling?
www.airbnb.com has many options and then there is also www.couchsurfing.org .
Boulder is a short bus ride from the Denver International Airport. If you have any questions or further concerns, don’t hesitate to ask.
Where is the workshop being held?
At a private space in Boulder. I email or message everyone with the location when they’ve registered and it’s two weeks out.
Is Bodysex for me if I can’t have sex or penetration is painful/uncomfortable?
Being a woman who once struggled with pain during sex, if I had attended Bodysex during that time, I know it would have helped me a lot. If you cannot or don’t want to use anything internally when we explore self-pleasure the second day of the workshop, that is totally ok. The only requirement is to explore self-pleasure and be present with yourself. If you can’t touch your vulva externally without pain, you can gently caress your body in other ways and tune in to it while absorbing the wonderful energy all around during recess.
One note for those considering attending:
Bodysex is powerful and those who attend walk away transformed. Their lives are changed on the emotional, physical and spiritual level. Because of this, I acknowledge Bodysex is not for everyone. If you do not want your life to change or to open and share authentically in the circle, then Bodysex is not for you.
Bodysex has already changed countless lives. It has a legacy of transformation leading back 40 years, and the legacy will live on through all those who join this fall.
If you feel inspired by Bodysex and an urge inside to say “yes!”, I invite you to join me for a weekend of expansion and experience your own Bodysex transformation.
It’s going to be life-changing, beautiful … and lots of fun!
