I strongly feel that as a culture we need to re-frame how we are approaching not only birth, but the entire female reproductive cycle from the first menses to menopause. And this ultimately begins with completely re-framing how we relate to and understand the female body.
With the highest cesarean rates in the world, and a medical culture that convinces women it is better to silence and control the female fertility cycle with drugs and hormones, I believe it is high time we gain a new perspective on what it means to reclaim our power a women.
This begins with reclaiming our bodies and the inherent power and erotic nature that lies within.
When it comes to pregnancy and birth, seldom do we associate those experiences as being an inherently erotic. This idea is not only unique but also quite taboo in our society.
But why is it that though we all come from s3x, as a culture we tend to separate what comes next (in the case of pregnancy, birth, and motherhood) as inherently separate from it?
In this week’s podcast I have the pleasure of interviewing Katie Spataro, a somatic sex educator and full spectrum doula at Sacred Womb Services. Katie is a master at helping her clients to tap into the sacred aspects of the womb and to learn how to experience the journey of pregnancy and birth as inherently erotic, and dare we say—orgasmic—experiences.
Do our society a favor and educate yourself on this topic.

Ok y’all, yet again I have to rant on this one. Just had a woman tell me that every professional she has seen (and shes visited quite a few!) has told her that it is “normal” for a woman to NOT have a…
