Join the Movement to Shift Cultural Perspective on Feminine Sexuality
This is the biggest risk I have ever taken in my life. I am fundraising for my first book, "From 6 to 9 and Beyond: Widening the Lens of Feminine Eroticism."
I've raised money in the past: for the Southeast tsunami relief in 2004; for a theatre company from 2005-2008; for the National Eating Disorder Association in 2009; for the Haiti earthquakes in 2010.
But this is the first project I've worked on that stems directly from my personal mission: to shift the way we view sexuality, from sex as commerce to sex as an expression of our deepest truth.
In the past I've raised funds in the low thousands. This time, I am asking for $20,000.
This project is stretching me in so many powerful ways. And even when all the resistance and sabotaging voices come up, my anchor and driving force is desire.
Desire to introduce a new perspective on feminine sexuality.
Our society tends to view feminine sexuality as something to be bought, won, stolen or bartered. We women aren't exempt from this either. We often use sex as a means to win a husband or feed the fairy tale romance addiction.
My book widens the lens to incorporate a broader spectrum of female sexuality and to reintroduce the erotic back into sex.
The to me, the erotic is a way of living that is infused with joy, wonder and reverence for this life. Every moment is an opportunity to tap into that dynamic, pulsing life force we call orgasm.
The book uses 6 fictional short stories, 9 poems and artistic photography by Sequoia Emmanuelle to explore a moment in the erotic lives of 6 feminine archetypes: The Virgin, The Whore, The Warrior, The Queen, The Nun, The Grand-Mother.
I will donate 10% of profits from the book and all monies raised above $20,000 to an organization that fights sex trafficking.
This book is more than just a project. It's my prayer for the planet.
Please check out my Indiegogo fundraising page and make a donation. I have a lot of great "perks" for those who make a contribution, including coaching packages, OM Training sessions, massages, artwork, signed copies of the book and much more!
If you can't contribute financially at this time, share the campaign with your friends! You can also attend an interactive, women-only lecture I am leading in San Francisco, sponsored by Goddess ConneXion, on July 31. The event is called "Redefining Eroticism, Desire and Orgasm" and starts at 7pm at 3330 20th St. All admission funds go towards the campaign.
I will also be on Devi Ward's Radio Show Better Love and Sex on August 1 at 7pm PT, where I will be discussing eroticism, sexuality and orgasm. Listen, call in and share with your friends. It promises to be a sexy conversation!
As you can see there are lots of ways to participate. If you feel as passionate as I do about healing our relationship to sexuality, we need your help! Your voice, your contributions, your willingness to be a part of this movement are the only way we can make sustainable change.
Thank you and I look forward to evolving with you.
In love and faith,
