How Strong is Your Sexual Voice?

Sexual voice is your right to verbal sexual expression. However, absence of that voice is most common issue most of my clients deal with. Most of us lost our sexual voices when we were young, causing us sexual disempowerment.



how does absence of sexual voice look like in daily life?


Some of the examples:

  • Not expressing your sexual desires with partners

  • Being ashamed of using sexual vocabulary

  • No being able to say "no"

  • Not verbalizing your sexual concerns

  • Feeling discomfort talking about sexual topics

  • Feeling menstrual shame

  • Being quite during sexual intercourse


what are the causes?


Multiple events and experiences can impact your sexual expression. Several but certainly not limited to


  • Not talking about sexual topic while growing up

  • Being shut down when asking about sexual topics

  • Sexual Traumas

  • Physical and verbal sexual abuse

  • Experience of shame

  • Social conditioning

  • Hearing from parents/guardians that talking about sex is inappropriate

  • Learning that sex is dirty

  • Religious and spiritual teachings....
