Sarah Marie Liddle has been a Pleasure Coach for over a decade and today I’m speaking with her not only about sexual pleasure but being open to all of life's pleasures.
Pleasure can seem quite selfish– but Sarah Marie suggests we re-frame our beliefs around that – and by letting go of our association with “guilty pleasures” we allow ourselves to take pleasure in its entirety.
We live in such a fast paced world now but by slowing down, being present and mindful, living with intention and attention your energy changes - you see things, feel things, experience things differently.
When we can learn to let go of the ego and can step fully into ourselves, our relationship with the world changes –
- we show up differently
- life flows
- we experience things from a place of love, and
- we give the best version of ourselves – in life and in the bedroom.
We discuss the steps we can take
Let’s have fun and explore … all about pleasure.

In today’s episode I’m speaking with fellow sexologist, Lauren White.
And we’re talking about something near and dear to both our hearts - women giving themselves permission to be sexual as they are - rather than trying to be something that they're not.
Lauren recently published her first book, Permission, that speaks to this topic.
She’s here to lift the veil on what sex can be, other than just what we see in the media, in movies or on television. She’s a big advocate of vanilla as her favourite flavour and encourages us all to own what it is we like - rather than striving for something we're not and feeling that we are falling short in sex and intimacy.
She questions what would happen if we could drop all of the pressure, expectation and judgment. Just turn up in sex as we are and see what happens! Drop all pretence, be in the moment and see what beautiful things can happen – like feeling open, luscious and orgasmic!
We talk about:
And one quote I love from Lauren “There is liberation in being satisfied with connected, loving sex that is pleasurable. I love vanilla!” Nothing wrong with vanilla! Let’s take a listen …
LAUREN WHITE is a qualified sexologist, but also describes herself as a "devoted mama, balanced Libran and lounge room dancer extraordinaire". She assists her many satisfied clients to drop the anxiety and reinvigorate their sexual power in their intimate lives. Through her one-on-one sessions, writing and events, she helps women to release their physical and psychological blocks so that they can liberate their libidos for intimacy, sex and life.
