Wait, give me a second while I pick my face up off the floor...
The past two weeks have felt like a real-life version of the tilt-a-whirl ride at carnivals. The semi-reassuring part is that I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. However, that doesn't make the immense amounts of discomfort I've felt any less uncomfortable. What I've found some reprieve and groundedness in is shifting how I relate to discomfort, change, transition, growth, etc.
Let me share what's going on. I'm stepping into a larger-than-life version of myself and as such, am moving and shifting in my business. This is all very exciting AND uncomfortable. Here's what you're gonna see over the coming weeks and months:
A super awesome brand refresh, thanks to Branner Creative. I'm proud to say that I created my website and current branding and it's gotten me to where I am now. What's even cooler is that I'm ready to take things to the next level. Stay tuned for all the freshness!
A shift in how I'm sharing my work. Thanks to ground-breaking, consciousness-shifting, impact-making work with Ani Manian, I am getting to hone in on PLEASURE as the epicenter for the work I offer and as a possibility that's available to everyone! Come take a ride with me and I'll show you how. ❤️
Drum roll please! Here it is, folks:
The Pleasure Project!
The Pleasure Project is a movement whose intention is to shift the paradigm around sex and intimacy from one of fear, shame, and judgement to one of pleasure, play and self-expression.
Over the next few months, I'll be collecting and sharing stories of pleasure so that we can create a space for this kind of conversation, while still acknowledging that other kinds of sexual experiences exist. This story collection will culminate in a live event extravaganza at the end of October where we will celebrate pleasure! There will be speakers, experts, and thought leaders on sex and intimacy. We'll hear from folks on their stories of pleasure. We'll party, celebrate and so much more.
All of this will not only be the perfect 30th birthday gift to myself, it will also be a way to raise at least $5k for organizations like DecrimNY and Sex Workers Project, whose missions are to decriminalize and destigmatize sex work, provide vital support to those in this work, and to provide aid to those affected by human sex trafficking.
Here's my ask of you: I can't and don't want to do this all on my own. I have a huge vision for The Pleasure Project and that vision can grow even larger with the collaboration and partnership of others who are moved and inspired by this. If you or anyone you know would be excited to get involved, please contact me or connect me with interested parties!
I'm looking for the perfect venue (in NY), food and beverage sponsors, photographers/videographers, connections to media channels and influencers, and all awesome people willing to donate time and love to this cause!
Together, we can create a world full of pleasure, play, self-expression and so much more!
