THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLES
Bring more pleasure into your life
– in and out of the bedroom –
every single day
Let me take a few guesses about why you’re here:
You’re trying to be Superwoman. You pride yourself on being everything to everyone, but it’s at the expense of running yourself ragged.
You go through the motions when it comes to sex, but deep down inside, you know that it could be so much more enjoyable.
You can’t remember the last time you did something for yourself without feeling guilty. You struggle with the question, “Am I worth it?”
The word “pleasure” makes you feel awkward, uncomfortable, or embarrassed.
Don’t worry – you’re not alone.
As a sex and relationship therapist, I’ve seen so many women who seem to be juggling it all, but in reality are completely neglecting their own pleasure and enjoyment.
Self-sacrifice can work for a while, but it inevitably backfires.
Sex starts to feel routine and mechanical, but you feel too helpless and hopeless to make improvements.
Your relationship deflates because the vibrant, fun-loving woman your partner fell in love with has become energetically sapped.
You wake up one day recognizing that you’ve been disconnected from your body for years.
I know how hard it is to prioritize yourself. I’ve been there too! My natural tendencies have always been to go into Type-A overdrive, and even as a therapist it’s taken a conscious effort to allow myself to slow down, bring myself back into my body, and connect to my own pleasure.
Because I now know how rewarding it can be to put my pleasure first, I keep making that effort, even when I’m tired, stressed, and feeling the furthest I could possibly be from sexy.
I want to invite you to get a taste of what life is like on the other side, because I know that once you do, you’ll never let yourself go back.
This is what I want for you:
To learn how to confidently prioritize your relationship with your body and your sexuality.
To discover what brings you pleasure, and to feel confident telling a current or future partner what you need.
To experience calm, peace, and love within your own skin.
To know that you are always worth it.

How It Works
In this innovative eight-week program, you’ll begin practicing the fine art of prioritizing pleasure. You’ll get exclusive access to one of my eight core Pleasure Principles, developed after years of experience as a professional sex therapist.
Each week, you’ll receive:
A 60-minute audio workshop, chock full of information and guided experiments
An accompanying written guide, outlining all of the material and exercises
A video describing a fun assignment for the week
You’ll learn valuable – and often surprising – information, be guided through exercises, and given assignments you’ll be excited to do.
You’ll be able to listen to the recording and go through the workbook at your convenience, all in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
You’ll get lifetime access to The Pleasure Principles, so it’s no problem if you have to miss a week. You can catch up whenever you have the time.
The investment in your pleasure is $397 for the full eight weeks. That works out to less than $50 per week.
You should expect to spend about an hour on each workshop, and another half-hour on the assignments.
I know without a doubt that this investment is worth every penny and every moment, but you wouldn’t be here on this page if prioritizing yourself was easy for you! So close your eyes, take a deep breath, and think about what life will look like on the other side, when you’re not afraid to make this kind of investment in yourself!
Check out the eight Pleasure Principles, and what you’ll be covering, week by week:
Week 1 – Acknowledge The Past
This week I’ll introduce you to the program and outline how we’ll spend the next two months together. You’ll take a look at your own personal starting point for this adventure. You’ll also examine your sexual history and uncover any past or current blockages to pleasure and enjoyment.
Week 2 – Set Intentions
Next you’ll uncover and examine your personal reasons for participating in the program. You’ll also work on developing clear, specific goals for the program and beyond.
Week 3 – Be Kind To Yourself
It’s a sad fact that most women spend their days beating themselves up internally. This week, you’ll focus on changing the way you treat yourself so you can start allowing yourself to open up to greater enjoyment.
Week 4 – Get Comfortable With Your Body
If you’re like most women, this will be a big week for you! Every woman struggles with her body in one way or another. Learning to unabashedly love your body takes time, but you’ll walk away from this week’s workshop having taken some significant steps.
Week 5 – Prioritize Everyday Pleasure
This week you’ll get into the heart of the program – learning how to slow down, start putting yourself first, and inviting more pleasure into your life on a daily basis.
Week 6 – Seek Sexual Pleasure
Yep, you guessed it. This week is all about sex. You’ll learn some surprising facts about your body and your orgasm. You’ll come into contact with any hang-ups you may have about exploring your sexuality and taking ownership of your pleasure. I’ll give you specific techniques and plenty of encouragement.
Week 7 – Learn What You Want
A lot of women have a hard time identifying and expressing what you truly want. This week, I’ll show you some fun strategies for tuning into your true desires, and you’ll practice communicating those desires to family members, friends, and partners.
Week 8 – Stay Engaged
To close out our program, you’ll spend some time reviewing what you’ve learned and how you’ve changed. You’ll also develop some goals for you to work on moving forward, so you can continue your journey long after you’ve finished the program.
“I actually felt like my brain was expanding during the last exercise as I realized how old, outdated, and no longer applicable beliefs were still impacting my day to day life choices. It felt like I was opening to allow for new possibilities to emerge. I am excited about future sessions. Excitement and looking forward to more joy have vanquished any fears I may have initially felt.”Katie K.
