If you told me I would be writing a blog post about The Art of Pleasing Yourself five years ago, I would have said you were crazy. Pleasure was not big in my vocabulary, certainly not a guiding word if I knew what guiding words were back then.
But here I am now, writing about me and Pleasure, and how our relationship has evolved over the last five years.
If you are wondering if I am going to talk about sex and orgasm, then let me put your mind at ease.
Because how could I not? That our clitoris is designed for ONE function and ONE function only (PLEASURE) has always been intriguing for me and pleasure is deliciously tied to our sexuality.
No, not just sensuality.
Most women tend to shy away from talking about our sexuality.
I almost did too.
I was going to touch on it, but planned on focusing on the art of sensuality because well, sensuality we all feel a bit more comfortable with.
And being comfortable with our sensuality is a step towards embracing our sexuality.
Or the fact that we have v-a–g-i-n-a-s and breasts that flow with milk and wombs that grow human beings.
These sacred parts of our bodies, our selves that lead us to pleasure.
We cannot talk about pleasure without talking about power.
Because the art of pleasing yourself has to do with owning your power.
With knowing who you really are.
As a woman.
As a spiritual being choosing a body of a woman.
As an orgasmic creature who knows how to receive just as much as she knows how to give.
So we can’t just talk about sensuality.
We have to dive into sexuality too.
We are sexual creatures after all.

The Art of Pleasing Yourself is about knowing your WORTH completely.
It’s about knowing that your body has one purpose only: to serve you.
Your body is sacred and exists for you.
Yes, we give gestate and give birth and nurse newborns. Our body was meant for nurture. But our body was also meant for pleasure.
Namely, our own.
Our vitality, our ability to show up fully in the world without shame, our capacity to give RESTS in our ability to receive pleasure.
So the question is, how well do you receive pleasure? Do you make it a practice to invite Pleasure into your life? Do you embrace your sexual self as sacred, as something good and an inherent part of who you are? Do you see the link between your wellness and your sexual energy?
