Hi! I’m Laura
I help women explore their sexual pleasure and heal body shame
in a safe and supportive space.
Taking a Bodysex® Workshop started my evolutionary journey to discover more sexual pleasure and fall truly in love with myself. Today, I am self-full and comfortable in my own skin. It’s now my mission to carry that gift forward.
What is Bodysex?
- Bodysex® is a process developed by the legendary sex educator, Betty Dodson®, PH. D.
- Bodysex® Workshops are designed to support women with compassion as they connect to their bodies, heal shame, and move fully into pleasure
- The workshops include specific rituals, such as Genital Show and Tell, Vulva Massage, and Erotic Recess
- Every woman heals herself through the Bodysex® rituals, sharing in the circle, and self-pleasure
- The intimacy that is inherent in Bodysex® often creates a feeling of sisterhood among those who have shared this space together
Our culture hinders every woman’s
normal sexual development
The natural process of genital exploration is typically shut down early for girls. As a result, women are disconnected from their genitals and physical pleasure.
Masturbation is the foundation of human sexuality.
Girls and women are taught that our bodies must fit an unrealistic ideal
Most of us hold shame around the appearance of our genitals
Sex education for girls and young women focuses on reproduction, without any mention of pleasure.
I can hear Betty voice: “It’s a vulva, not a vagina! The vagina is the birth canal only”
We don’t even use the correct words for our sexual anatomy
The clitoris, every woman’s primary sex organ, isn’t commonly recognized as the main source of sexual pleasure
The standard sexual model is that a man “gives” sex, and a women is expected to “receive” what is given and like it. If not, then there must be something wrong with her.
She either feels broken or that she wants too much.
TRUTH: Women have tremendous capacity for sexual pleasure
The clitoris is the only organ that exists exclusively for pleasure
The clitoral glans has about 8,000 nerve endings, more than twice as on the head of a penis
The clitoris does not lose its erection after orgasm, making it possible for multiple orgasms
But women aren’t taught about our anatomy
or encouraged to explore our own pleasure
“Sex is a skill that must be practiced” -Betty Dodson®

It's been almost a year since Betty left the planet on October 31, 2020. I wrote this tribute to be read during her recent memorial at the Museum of Sex in NYC. Betty Dodson® wasn’t my friend. But I was her student even before I knew she was my teacher. When I was a...
