I’m the “pleasure mama” at Bodysex Cleveland and Joyfully Orgasmic. Facilitating Bodysex Workshops feels so right after spending over 35 years in the field of education as a first grade teacher and college professor. It’s my passion to provide opportunities for women/vulva-owners to explore their sexuality, heal body shame, and maximize pleasure. I create a warm, safe space for self-exploration. I’m comfortable with sexual preferences such as BDSM, swinging, polyamory, and LGBTQK.
I first learned of Betty’s work over 25 years ago when I discovered Betty’s homage to self-love, Sex for One. Her book guided me back to my masturbation practice and reconnected me to my sexuality while in therapy after a difficult break up. In May 2016, I attended my first Bodysex Workshop with Betty and Carlin which launched me on a journey to heal a lifetime of shame that I felt in my plus-sized body. My capacity for experiencing pleasure continues to grow as I facilitate workshops and share Bodysex magic with other women.
