Being A Sexual Woman

Never be ashamed of passion.
If you are strongly sexed,
you are richly endowed.
— Margaret Sanger

I am a sexual woman. I love who I am, I love my body, and I love what I stand for. I turn 30 this month and I am happy that I can authentically say that I love the woman that I have become.  

I see sex as a normal, natural and beautiful part of my life.  It’s not the ‘be all and end all’ but it is a big part of who I am and I acknowledge it contributes largely to my wellbeing and happiness.  This doesn’t necessarily mean I need sex everyday to be happy (although that would be nice), or that I’m a woman who sleeps with ‘just anyone’.  Instead, what makes me feel happy is that I don’t feel any shame or guilt around who I am and what I desire sexually.  It’s simple; I feel free and confident to enjoy sex and everything that it entails, with myself, and my lovers.  

I guess it hasn’t been an easy road to reach this point, but it’s been forever beautiful, challenging and joyful and I’ve learnt a lot about myself.  As a sexual woman in our culture I think that there is unfortunately a fine line between being the beautiful and confident sexual woman and being the stereotypical ‘slut’.  With this in mind I have always placed value on respecting myself and my choices and always felt a reciprocated respect from my lovers. I have not one regret around what I have experienced sexually and truly believe that without my experiences I wouldn’t be the person that I am today.

Being passionate about every aspect of sex and being comfortable with my own sexuality has naturally led me into a career that I love.  With an undergraduate degree in psychology and experience working as a Yoga teacher my journey brought me to where I am right now, completing my Masters in Sexology.  My goal is to inspire and empower women to embrace who they are as sexual creatures; to explore their own sexual desires and authentically own their unique sexual identity.  I understand this may be a challenging path for many, but I believe that if I can inspire women to accept that sex can be a normal, natural and beautiful part of their life, then that’s a good place to start.

Upon completing my Masters I want to make a difference by working for myself as a Sex Therapist, with a specific interest in working with young women.  I also have a vision and passion for creating more awareness around the need for greater and more holistic sex education for our youth in schools.  If I can inspire young women to talk about sex openly and empower them to explore their own sexuality, then I myself will feel happy that I am making a difference, one woman at a time.
