"Arousal as awakening can be G rated."
"New areas of arousal can come up anytime."
"Sexuality is not static. Relationships are not static. Who we are is not static."
"We may always love a certain thing, that's fine, and there are always going to be new and nuanced parts of our sexuality if we stay present to it."
"I am not Rapunzel locked in a tower waiting for someone to bring me sexual arousal. You get to create your arousal. You get to engage with the world in a way that awakens you. The more you know about what awakens you the more possibilities there are for you."
Leave a question on our voicemail if there's something specific you want to learn more about - then we can address it on a future show: 971-202-0869!
