It is so interesting that we as humans will typically wait for something to be a problem before we make a change. We wait for things to fall a part, or for someone to be dissatisfied or for our mind to be consumed with something ‘not working’ long enough before we take the action to change.
In today’s episode Caitie, a past participant of the Tangled program, shared her big ah-ha of how she was hesitant before joining because the sex was good. And so many women I speak with will say the same thing. But after having a baby things began to change so she decided to truly do something about it. But through her journey to experience more desire postpartum she realized how much she always had let her husband’s pleasure take precedence.
Caitie opens up about the profound impact this work has had on her relationship, from incredible shifts of more...
Today we dive even deeper into the titillating world of pleasure with Jenna, a past participant of the Tangled program.

If you've ever felt that push and pull between the demands of life and the deep human need for intimate connection both with yourself and your partner,, Jenna's story will resonate deeply.
Foreplay is always a hot button topic amongst my clients - should I? Is it really worth the effort? What IS foreplay exactly?
Foreplay could be the single most important thing to help your body (and your mind) warm up, get turned on and become erotically aroused. So why then is it the first thing to go as a relationship becomes more established?
In this episode my hope is that you walk away understanding WHY it is so important to set you up for a pleasurable experience and also give you some ways to lay the foundation for your foreplay to get even better.
Listen, there is A LOT going on and pleasure gets put on hold MOST of the time. What I find so often with my clients is that the desire for more pleasure in their life is THERE. That is something they want, but HOW is much harder. But it can be so much easier when you have a framework for how you will incorporate pleasure into your life. Instead of just thinking, “Oh yah, that’d be nice”, a framework gives you the structure to make pleasure a reality.
Grab your notes, because this episode is packed with insights that could very well reshape the way you approach your pleasurable...
Join us in this powerful conversation with Laura Conley as we delve into the profound journey of learning to love our bodies.
Letting go of shame and self-criticism isn’t for the faint of heart. There are so many messages about ‘how’ we should think and feel about our bodies - from loving them just how they are to never being satisfied, so where is that sweet spot? When is self-loathing driving change and can we still want to change our appearance even if we love our bodies??
It is easy to fall into all or nothing thinking. My over achiever brain has been guilty of this most of my life. But the problem is all or nothing usually isn’t sustainable and can make it easy to abandon our pursuits at the slightest disruption.
This is why I created “Pleasure Boosts” for myself awhile ago. These boosts of pleasure may be small, but the benefits are mighty. Enjoy the quick episode to hear ways you can begin incorporating Pleasure Boosts and why they are essential for supporting ourselves, even during those hectic times.

We're delving into a topic that resonates deeply with many women - a phenomenon known as the 'good girl' complex or sometimes referred to as the 'good girl syndrome.' This is a concept that has permeated our culture and society, and it paints a very specific picture of how women 'should' behave.
When societal expectations are imposed to such a stringent and uncompromising degree, that they begin to feel less like guidelines and more like chains is when these qualities, that may very well be good ones, become a problem. When the desire to please others overshadows one's own needs and desires, then we're navigating in the territory of the 'good girl' syndrome
The 'good girl' complex impacts our lives, our mental health, relationships, careers, and yes, our experience with our sexuality. But how does it specifically impact our ability to experience more pleasure? Listen in and find...
