women's sexuality

More than that, does facebook have a problem with women’s sexuality?

Today one of my posts about women’s sexuality was pulled off of facebook.  I was told it didn’t line up with the community standards.

Facebook and its  “standards” have been the topic of much debate lately.  And I know I’m not the only one who is questioning their reasoning, their loyalties and how they feel about women.

People often ask me how I got into my field.  I struggle to pinpoint the exact moment I wanted to do this.  Just when I think I can find the “beginning” I’m reminded of something else that lead me here.  I am less interested in when I started my interest/passion about sex and intimacy and more curious about why.

  • I do this work because I think self-love, pleasure and sexual enjoyment are all important.
  • I do this work because I want to help people release shame, limiting beliefs and fear.
  • I do this work because I value intimacy, vulnerability and connection.
  • I do this work because I am want to normalize the things we think are weird about sex.  I want to talk about the things we don’t talk about.  I want to make sex less scary or painful or embarrassing.
  • I do this work because it is my calling.

And yes, I work with a lot of women.  I work with women because I am one and I understand their perspective.  I also work with men.  I post about men and women’s sexuality…however my post about women’s sexuality is the one that was removed from facebook.

This is the post that was removed “Take this class to learn more about your sexuality and increase your desire.”  There was then a link to the sign up page for my “You Don’t Have to be a Sexy Tiger” class.

Scary stuff right?

This is not new behavior.  And facebook isn’t alone.

There are media outlets, groups of people and individuals that seem concerned about what will happen if women enjoy their sexuality.

My belief is that the world will be a better place when we can talk openly and lovingly about sex – about what we want, what excites us or what scares us. Can you imagine how we would all treat each other if we were all enjoying pleasure and feeling good about our bodies?

I want to change the world.  I want to help people unlock their erotic potential.  I want to do it without shame.

This is my truth.

I know I’m not alone.  Women (and men) are ready to embrace their sexual selves and enjoy pleasure!

How can we make a difference?

Keep the conversation going.  Share this post.  Tell your story.  Learn more about sex.  Talk with your friends.  Embrace your sexuality and pleasure!
