Diving into the topic of Unschooling has taught and inspired me lots when it comes to (un)learning, being human and creating the life we truly want. This is the second part of my talk with Pam Laricchia and Anna Brown who bring their expertise on unschooling, focused on the topic of relationships and sexuality. I am beyond excited to share with you this conversation about: How can we relate without rules? How can we support our children but also ourselves to listen to our body? Natural embodied consent awareness. The power of knowing AND feeling that we have a choice, at any moment. Creating a culture where it feels safe to make mistakes and safe to quit if something doesn't feel good. If you haven't listened to the first part, find it here.

They are known for their queer- and cis-friendly spaces and have lots of wisdom to share on the topic! One other reason I enjoyed talking with Li is a kinship in our relating style and sexual orientation. In this episode they'll be talking about polyamory and what it means for them, as well as bring some valuable perspectives through attachment theory.

"How did you start doing the job you do?" Thanks to you asking me this question often lately, this episode is laying out the key events in my life that shaped me to where I am now. Like every mother has a birth story, all of us have a story about growing as a sexual being. Explaining to you what got me to become a holistic intimacy and sexuality coach is pretty much the same as telling you this personal tale. By listening you'll get to know how I started my journey full of eagerness and curiosity but also with patterns of pleasing, non-consensual happenings, genital health challenges and experiences of painful intercourse. You hear about some turning points that made me look for alternative ways to navigate my intimate life. You'll get to know more about the ways I found or created the kind of safety I needed to heal. How did I find the kind of intimacy and ways of relating that fulfilled me in a much deeper way, uniquely to what I need and long for? This is also to you who's my client and who feels like I know your whole life story while you barely know mine! If this was of any value to you, share it with your friends and leave a comment.

You can also read this on my blog. We don't learn about masturbation. We don't learn about our anatomy (like, for real, there are so many misconceptions about our genitals). We don't learn about having difficult conversations or setting personal boundaries. We don't learn what an orgasm is. In our curriculum, LGBTQA+ was highly unmentioned. And how the freak is it possible we don't learn how to read the signs of our fertility? Some are angry. Some are confused. Maybe you feel unsatisfied. Many wondered and didn't know who to ask to. Any time I study more about the erotic body or receive a question from a client that starts with "Is it normal that..." and continues with something that is completely normal (like always), my heart breaks a bit. The consequences of having a topic like sexuality be taboo is massive for our self-image, our sexual well-being and thus our overall health. Let's start talking about what is important! In this episode my sister and I talk about our experience of growing up as young girls. It's a story that many can relate to and a conversation we hope you start opening more with those around you. Get in touch if you are interested in working with me: www.intimate-breath.com Ps. If there is one thing for sure, it is that I am way better in talking pleasure than setting up a recording studio! With humor and some sincere sadness I can tell you I took a microphone and not-so-light-weighted soundcard with me on my travel to Belgium, only to realize afterwards I by accident used the computer microphone anyways. I hope you find some joy in listening to our talk nevertheless! You can read the transcript here.
Arousal, sexual pleasure and orgasms, can they also be present in situations that are usually not considered as sexual? In this episode I’m sharing a personal story about a powerful orgasmic experience I’ve had now multiple times more since this recording happened. Olivia is with me and guides the conversation with her curiosity. You’ll hear more about how pleasure and creation are linked in two directions. Through the body, through touch and through our sexual pleasure we can access flow, effortless creation and expression. From there we can feel inspired and take action. The other way around is also possible: the (biologically crucial and ) purposeful act of creating a baby is meant to be pleasurable. Any other creation that feels purposeful and comes from a deep care can also be orgasmic. Can this positive feedback loop of bodily pleasure in our work support us to create more and more effortlessly? Other subjects we dive into: Allowing ourselves to feel turned-on whenever A new perspective on orgasms and how they can feel like Looking at creation in cycles Our mind as a fully integrated part of our being Are you open to being surprised of what’s possible?

Imagine schools where the cognitive learning is one important aspect next to many others, like relating, handling strong emotions, authentic communication and listening to the body. We could argue that this is not the job of a school and still, there could be a lot more consideration and room for integrated embodiment, emotional wellbeing and relating skills in children's learning journey. As adults, we all have a little child in us. The one that just sometimes needs to be held, that suddenly gets stubbornly angry, the one that wants to run away when something gets scary. Most of us didn't learn how to acknowledge and be with our own little child. In this episode I talk with Nikki Verloy from Onderwijs Anders (https://www.onderwijsanders.be/ ,in Dutch) about emotional maturity with children, in the classroom and in adult relationships.

In the blogpost 'You Use Self-Pleasure For Everything?!' I discuss how (self-)pleasure can be a source of inspiration, creativity and renewed energy, but also a tool for emotional release and coming closer to yourself and your body. It got a lot of responses full of curiosity and readers opened up to share their personal story. A lot of men wondered, sometimes questioned, whether the same applies to male sexuality. In this episode I interview Fredrik Swahn, a musician and tantra teacher. Above all, a man who has been immensily eager to explore himself throughout his life and isn't afraid to speak in the open about his personal experiences. Join us in this talk about the sexual experience of a man. More about Fredrik's work: www.comealittlecloser.se and www.fredrikswahn.se
Yes, your pussy can be wild, powerful and strong. What's also similar between a wild cat and your genitals is that once they had a negative experience, it takes time to build the trust again. It takes time to (re)build a proper and pleasurable relationship. In this episode, Kelsey Filip and I are discussing how to move from numbness or pain to trust and pleasure in your vagina! Join the Juicy Yoni Weekend in Sweden, April 9 - 10th!
