Most of us keep our sexual stories locked deep inside. We may talk about past experiences over a bottle of wine with our gal pals. Or we may share a few intimate details with a lover. Yet, typically no one person knows our complete sexual history. In fact, we often remember our own history in fragmented pieces without fully comprehending our entire journey.
“Our sexuality is the essence of who we are. Your sexual stories matter.
These stories impact your choices. They impact what you want in your life and what you believe.”
Dr. Juliana Hauser
Creator of the Sexual Stories Revealed course
Are you ready to explore your holistic sexual journey?
Are you ready to celebrate your joyful sexual experiences and
heal painful sexual memories?
Are you ready to shed any lingering shame about your sexuality?
Are you ready to discover more about who you really are
and unapologetically accept your true authentic self?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions,
the Sexual Stories Revealed course is for you!
Welcome to REVEALED: Uncovering Your Sexual Story!
REVEALED will give you valuable guidance and compassionate support as you examine and explore your own sexual history. You’ll make this journey with a small group of women over nine weeks. Each sixty minute lesson, delivered via Zoom, will include information to guide your exploration as well as group chat about the process and your experience. After each lesson, you’ll be given tasks that encourage self-reflection and prompt journal writing. Your journal writing is informal, just for you. By the end of the course, you’ll choose two completed stories, one of celebration and one of healing, to share with the group. As your facilitator, I’ll guide and support you through your joy and your tears. Wherever this journey leads you, I’ll be your biggest cheerleader.
Course duration: 10 weekly 60 minute sessions
Additional commitment: Self- reflection, journal writing, and other activities

What do past participants say?
“Laura has such a fantastic energy for this kind of work.
Her lived experiences help support and teach people from a wide variety of backgrounds. I just love that she is as committed to and delighted by this healing process as we are.”
– Erin M., age 44
“Laura, thank you for your kindness … your gentleness … your generosity… your strength and your positive attitude. All made the space feel safe which allowed me to share more fully and just be me.”
– Wendy Bendle, age 58
“I really can’t overstate how important this class was for me. . . Previously I had been excessively focused on the instances that still hurt, times from my childhood when I didn’t have agency, etc., but viewing the totality of my sexual history helped place these relatively minor issues in their proper context with all the many years of healing I’d actually undertaken.”
-Erin M., age 44

FAQ’s and Details
How often will we meet? How long is each session?
We will meet weekly for ten weeks. Each session will last sixty minutes, with prior notice given for session that may extend longer.
What do I need for this course?
You’ll need a computer, tablet or phone with an internet connection in a private, comfortable place. Bring a notebook and a pen to take notes. You’ll also need a journal for writing between sessions. Please wear your soft, comfy clothes and bring a warm mug of your favorite tea or coffee.
How will we meet?
We will meet via Zoom, an online conferencing platform. You’ll receive a link to join the meeting. Shortly before the meeting start time, click the link and you’ll be directed to a waiting room. When the class starts, Laura will let you in to our online meeting room. You’ll see yourself as well as others in the class.
What do I need to do between classes?
During the session, activities will be presented for you to complete before the next session. Keep your journal handy, as the activity usually prompts writing. Plan to spend at least 2-3 hours during the week for the activities, self-reflection, and writing. The more time you put in, the more you will get out of this journey.
Is this class like group therapy?
No. This course specifically provides education only, although some may consider their personal experience to be therapeutic. Laura is a sex educator trained by Dr. Juliana Hauser to guide you on your personal journey through this course. Sex education is not psychotherapy and Laura is not a therapist. Please consult with a mental health professional or psychotherapist if you need those services.
