You can also find me on Spreaker, Player.FM, AudioBoom, & wherever fine podcasts are played.

Ev’Yan Whitney is a writer who chronicles her journey into erotic awakening and exploration at sexloveliberation com. In addition to writing about her sex life, she’s also a sexuality doula—a person who helps facilitate, educate, and hold space for other women who want to step out of sexual shame and into their erotic power. We talked in-depth about releasing sexual shame, reclaiming our sexuality, powerful practices for sexual healing, reigniting your libido, and so much more. 

In this episode we talk about:

  • Ev’Yan’s journey from being a personal style blogger to creating a website about sexual liberation
  • A “before and after” look at Ev’Yan’s life since she’s gone through this process of sexual exploration, awakening, and liberation

  • Getting to know who you are and who you want to be as a sexual being
  • Increasing our “sexual vocabulary”
  • Three small steps that anyone could take to begin their own process of sexual healing
  • How Ev’Yan brought her husband into this process of sexual healing and what she’d do differently if she could go back
  • The practices that were most powerful in Ev’Yan’s own journey to sexual healing and liberation
  • How to begin creating a pleasurable relationship with your yoni when you’re not comfortable touching yourself or being touched
  • Advice for healing a loss of libido when there seems to be no medical factors involved
  • How to protect yourself from the external messages and representations of women that might temp you back into negative thought patterns and feelings of guilt or shame
  • How to explore sacred sex and increasing intimacy, rather than sex being a purely physical act
  • How to protect yourself from the external messages and representations of women that might tempt you back into negative thought patterns and feelings of guilt or shame
