“ I grew up in Brazil, in a highly sexualized culture. The messages I was given growing up were very contradictory and women were expected to act like a lady at all times, except in the bedroom. I’ve felt sexual urges from a young age, and from age 15 onwards I began acting on them. Over the years I’ve had hundreds of unfulfilling sexual encounters with dozens of partners. Until one day I decided to monetize my sexual appetite.
In 2011 I became an escort. I felt empowered to be paid while having unfulfilling sex. Sad, I know. Even though I was having a lot of sexual experiences with different people, I was still dissatisfied. With my work as an escort, I learned so much about men, sex, desires and what goes on in the underworld of sexuality. I knew there was more to sexuality than what I was getting. I also learned about myself, my triggers and childhood woundings, expecting a man to “save me” from my misery. Most importantly, I learned it was about QUALITY, and not quantity!
Since my healing journey started in 2013, when I discovered tantra and embodiment practices, I found them more effective than traditional talk therapies. The effects were so profound on my psyche, that I chose to abandon my psychology degree studies to pursue a career in holistic sexual healing & empowerment instead. I have trained as a Sexological Bodyworker, Embodiment Counsellor and Sacred Sexuality (Tantra) Practitioner since then, and have attended dozens of tantric and sacred sexuality workshops and retreats in the last few years.
The results of this healing quest have taught me how to love myself, to accept & love my body, to honour my body’s boundaries & desires, to be more authentic when it comes to sexuality and life in general. I have released shame, guilt and limiting beliefs relating to social & cultural conditioning around sexuality. This has enabled me to interact with the world in a healthier, more positive manner. I now stand in my power and in my truth.
Fast forward to 2020, I live a life of freedom, full of joy, purpose and commitment to help others to come home to themselves, and embrace life with the enthusiasm and innocence of a child again, through the Pleasure Awakening practices.
We all have desires around sexuality, but very few people are willing to admit it openly. There is so much societal conditioning around sex, religious influences, shame, guilt and cultural programing around sexuality. I am here to create a safe space for you to explore your edges and liberate yourself. “”
