The most common obstacles to fully enjoying sex (insecurities, physical pain or discomfort, "performance" anxiety, fears of past traumas arising, being/staying present in the moment, the pressure to orgasm, "I don't have enough time," negative self-talk, body confidence, communicating about what you actually enjoy, trust, openness, initiating physical intimacy, + more)

What Past Students Have Said...
“Rachel is so enthusiastic, knowledgable, and passionate about these topics! She makes learning fun, as well as pushing me to think outside previous notions of "normal" or "the way it is".”
- Jennifer A. (She/Her)
“My best friend of 10 years identities as non-binary. I always knew that something was different from the first day we met, and have tried my best to understand. I remember the first time he (that’s his pronouns) asked me to go shopping for girl clothes with him, and seeing how happy he was wearing them made me happy. I didn’t understand so much about non-binary & with this class, I feel like I finally understand (I have so much learning to do). I sent him a text and let him know what I was learning and he felt seen & we had a long conversation about this topic. Thank you very much for giving us the education we needed."
- Abi G. (She/Her)
“This is the sex-ed that would have set me up for a much more empowered sexual experience and attitude than the one I developed from my very lacking public school sex education. Rachel’s commitment to inclusivity and zeal for the topics covered in these workshops is obvious and joy-filled.”
- Mal M. (She/Her/They)
“Sexual Health Education is JUST as important as all other forms of health education yet it is rarely talked about in an empowering way. The material is often presented through a fear-based perspective. This workshop was the opposite of that. Rachel outlined the many avenues of sexual health and how we can take easy steps to prevent and treat STIs. It was such a relief to let go of old stigmas and beliefs and reclaim the power over my own sexual health."
- Annie S. (She/Her)
“You both are so lovely and excellent educators. I am clearly still in a place of unlearning a lot of shame surrounding sex and all that entails. Your positivity, energy, and enthusiasm about sex, sex toys, cultivating your sexual self, and generally encouraging continued learning around sexual needs/wants are so incredibly helpful and validating. Thank you both so much for sharing your time and talent as well as making a safe space for folks to learn.”
