San Diego Sexologist & Sexuality Speaker, Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus, speaking on women & self-love.

San Diego Sexologist & Sexuality Speaker, Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus, speaking on women & self-love.

"A good sexual encounter is the balance between being selfish and self-less. You should be aware of what brings you pleasure and finding ways to have that; you have to give yourself permission to feel pleasure. As well, ensuring you are doing that for your partner."

It's Day 12 of the Women Learning to Love Summit, a free 21-day video summit for women to learn about all aspects of self-love. And that means that my video interview, about self-love, sex, and mindfulness, was just released! Here are the main topics we talked about:

  • Understand what shame is and begin to understand where it comes from, then engage in some of the practices Dr. Jenn suggests to release that shame,

  • Set-up a seductive environment for yourself – as you might for a new partner – so the very nature of the sensuality created by youfor you – increases your feeling of value, self-worth, and acceptance for yourself,

  • Learn 3 characteristics and personality traits definitely worth adopting,

  • Listen to several methods of strengthening both your relationship and your sex life,

  • Cultivating mindfulness in intimacy with yourself, leads into intimacy in other areas of life too, 

  • Hear how choosing to be "sexually neutral" can be incredibly liberating.
