In this week's episode, I talk with one of my dear friends Amanda Testa. Amanda is not only a Sex, Love, and Relationship coach but a trusted healer and guide who’s served hundreds of clients over the years with masterful skills in coaching, pleasure embodiment, and somatic trauma resolution.
She helps her client tenderly heal their relationship with their sexuality, shamelessly embrace pleasure, own their sexy confidence, and cultivate deeply connected relationships with her fiercely loving support.
Tune in as Amanda, and I talk about:
Uprooting limiting beliefs we’re taught as women about our sexuality and pleasure —> ways to transcend, heal and work through them.How can we love ourselves more as we do the deconditioning work and connect more with our bodies? Beneath the Sheets: Learn why it’s common that women can feel discomfort or pain in the bedroom and why it could be happening to you. Tools/Tips/Tricks to create space to connect with your pleasure, your five senses, being more present, and redefine what pleasure looks like for you.Join us for laughter, friendship, and real talk as we help you uncover how to love yourself and your body and activate more ways to bring pleasure into your life.
Trigger warning: We touch on sexual trauma and abuse and how common it is for women as we do inner healing around sexuality. DesiRae briefly and vulnerably shares, without details, my journey with healing from sexual shame, trauma, and abuse. I share this from a place of healing and to share my voice to empower us all to love ourselves and create space for healing from it. I received help from my psychotherapist. Please check in with yourselves before diving in if you have the space to hear that.
