Another email/thank you from our last bodysex group:

Hi lovely ladies,

It is fantastic to check my email in the morning and find a new email from one of you wonderful women :)

As for me the workshop has changed me. I am happier, more communicative with my partner (and with myself about my sexual desires) and most of all I am more comfortable in my skin. I know this will have a HUGE effect on my parenting and the role modeling I am doing for my daughter.

I know what it is like to have a mother who hates herself and hates her body - something that I have been struggling with for a while. Thanks to the workshop and you wonderful women I feel connected to my body, connected to "womanhood" in general. We are all such beautiful beings and their is nothing to be ashamed about with our bodies or sexuality and our desire.

For me one of the most amazing and healing moments was the group massage. Having a group of beautiful naked women surround me and touch me in such a loving way was so profound. Normally I only three types of touch in my life:

1) Someone wants something from me
2) I have paid them to touch me (traditional massage)
3) They love me and want to be close to me

To be honest I don't get a lot of #3 - so having people who actually wanted to touch me was too wonderful for words.

Thank you, all of you. I am a changed woman.

Lots of love,
