Join this lively discussion with Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of dozens of volumes of best selling erotica as we explore the interesting crossroads of what makes us orgasmic. Giving language to our erotic selves, even just in the reading of other people’s fantasies has the power to both add passion to our intimate experiences and release our fears by facing them. Rachel’s anthologies explore pleasure from all angles ending up giving us access to our own arousal mechanism. Exploring our deepest desires, especially the ones we can’t name ourselves within the confines of a book cover may just be the sex therapy your life has needed. Be curious and wonder….

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” –Antoine de Saint-Exupery
We believe we are making it better by shielding ourselves from our own pain. This is a fool’s errand, for the pain we refuse to feel and acknowledge doesn’t dissipate from our lacking attention, but rather collects in our heart center with a weightiness that we often cannot name or discern. So fearful are we, of the potential of a broken heart, that we inadvertently refuse to open our hearts at all.
