I began my journey toward sexual freedom while reading one of Anaïs Nin's diaries in a quiet corner. From there, my mind was opened to a way of being that always felt off-limits to me. My own curiosity guided me to awakening.
I don't believe that sexual liberation needs to be an arduous undertaking. It can (and should) come from tiny steps taken toward following your curiosity. And if you're curious and looking for a place to dive in, this page is for you!
Here are some of my favorite books that have helped me blossom into a sexually liberated woman, and have helped my clients as they're on their path of sexual self-discovery.
