What if the world accepted your sexual desires for Kink, Fetish and D/s-BDSM as NORMAL?
Living in an intolerant, moralistic, judgmental and punitive culture, has led many of us to hold our authentic sexual desires out of the light, if acknowledged at all.
In this dark state, our sexuality may have become entangled with mild to extreme shame, fear, confusion, harsh self-judgments, harsh projections, lack of confidence, trust or acting with secrecy or deception.
In a free society, could there be anything more absurd, harmful, and unnecessary than adults hiding or being persecuted for the truth of their consensual erotic desires, because others in their culture might disapprove!
Your kink or fetish-centered sexuality is as natural, authentic and valid a part of you as your eye color, or your desire to be loved!
Deep down within you, your erotic nature is already fully developed. It already knows how to confidently express all of your very real and “natural” sexual yearnings.
For many of us, however, our rich erotic potentials, from holy to perverse, are greatly diminished, or held back entirely, by numerous embedded beliefs our sex-negative culture has entangled them in.
I want to help you get untangled!
My intention as a personal guide, workshop presenter, advocate and author over the last twelve years has been to help others bring their sexual desires out of the shadows and into emotionally and physically safe, conscious expression. I have helped hundreds of sincere people find an honorable path, for the real-world expression of their sexuality, no matter what the truth of it is. Just as importantly, they also learned to express their desires in a way that remained in integrity with their agreements to themselves and others important to them.
Ultimately, it is only through impeccable honesty, with ourselves and our partners, that we can be free to experience the full depth and power that our sexual truth holds for us. If your desire is to ground your sexual desires in a mature, healthy foundation, that is in integrity with your values, then I would love to support you to achieve that!
Our cultures, religions and families, generally do not offer a safe, compassionate, nonjudgmental place to honor and discuss the full spectrum of our sexual desire. Nor do they respect or encourage any but the narrowest view of acceptable sexual practices.
That’s I why I began working with individuals, couples and groups over 10 years ago. I wanted to create a safe, compassionate, enlightened sanctuary where someone could come to speak, be witnessed, ask questions, heal, express and explore whatever their sexual truth was. I wanted to make sure there was at least one place where people could feel welcomed, honored, encouraged and admired for who they were sexually and in all regards.
The fear of shaming, harsh judgments, being an outcast, loss of employment, family and friends, can leave many of us hidden or shadowy about our true sexual nature. Some of us are so deep in shame, or guilt we can’t get past the fear of speaking openly about our desires to those closest to us, even if they were open to hear it. Some of us become consumed by secret incursions into fantasy, masturbation or porn rather than risk openly expressing what’s true. Many of us, when we were young, were emotionally wounded (traumatized or terrorized) around our sexuality, if not in fact sexually abused. We may have developed shyness or embarrassment, loss of trust, loss of confidence. We may have internalized the harsh voice of moral judgment from our father or mother, religion or culture, into our inner dialogue. And to one extent or another we may carry an innate fear of our sexual desire being discovered, getting caught in the act, the dreaded feeling of being busted and the disastrous consequences that might bring.
So if you have had a life-long or recent desire for some aspect of Fetish sex such as kink, Dominance and submission ( D/s) , BDSM ( bondage discipline sadism masochism ) or any of the thousands of fetish desires common in all of humanity, what can you do to include these desires in a conscious and safe way in your life? Self exploration is one way, but I believe the most effective option, is to find a skilled, experienced, compassionate guide to help you begin your journey. Someone who knows this complex terrain well and can help you avoid the numerous pitfalls down the path, and help you stay focused on your intention.
I work with all persuasions of men, women and couples, who have a desire for a particular sexual practice outside the conventional, but have kept it hidden. I choose to work with people who are interested in grounding their sexuality in a mature, personally sacred foundation. This work may also include compassionately examining and resolving the emotional fears and judgments that may have been keeping the truth of your Eros hidden from yourself and others.
