45 :: Prioritizing HER Pleasure with Kim Sedgwick

Episode Description:

Ladies, why are we so afraid to ask for what we want in the bedroom?
This week on the Ignite Intimacy podcast I’m talking to sex educator Kim Sedgwick, co-founder of Red Tent Sisters, about the female tendency to put others first and not take time to consider and express their own desires and needs. We’re talking about opening up the channels of communication in the bedroom, and prioritizing all different kinds of pleasure, not just orgasm.
Learn the beauty of letting go of your fears, saying goodbye to those pesky hangups, being fully seen for all of you, and creating true connection and intimacy with the right people (for you!).

Kim Sedgwick-BIO

Growing up Toronto, Canada, in a very sex positive atmosphere, Kim always felt comfortable asking questions and having discussions about sex. After majoring in English and Gender & Women’s Studies, Kim and her sister Amy founded Red Tent Sisters to teach women how to manage their fertility naturally through the Justisse Method, and helping them feel sexually empowered.
Kim aims to change the definition of the passive “nice girl”, and teach women about the confidence that comes from knowing your boundaries and creating deep connections because of it. Currently working in Toronto, Kim also works in continuing education and advocacy for sexuality and gender issues.
