Our introduction to our sexuality
was confusing & W-R-O-N-G.
I bet, like me, you learned at a young age that a good girl was chaste, and being too provocative or (gasp!) sexually curious was bad. So, you set off to be a good girl. But as we hit puberty, we saw the “good girls” getting zero attention from boys. Huh…okay, so now you have to be sexy so you can get a guy’s attention, but not too sexy because that’s bad—check. Shortly after that, you learned that sexual attention is not the only kind of attention you were looking for. You also wanted to feel cherished, respected, cared for, and protected. How were you supposed to get that? Maybe by being a good girl…? Groan. What gives?
It’s time we examine our instincts (because they’re mischievous at best and untrustworthy at worst), the stories we were told (that scared us silly), and the lessons that we learned (that sometimes caused us confusion and shame) and shake it all out to find what’s true for us as grown-up women today.
And that is only the beginning.
Sex, Love & Intimacy Workshop will help you...
These are just some of the hot topics that we'll cover in the Sex, Love & Intimacy Workshop
You will learn...
Sexual healing starts in this class on Saturday and culminates in a fire ritual by day’s end on Sunday.
This is a safe, no-judgment zone to talk about absolutely anything. I promise to be the best sister-girlfriend you’ve got. I’ll tell it to you straight — that means with love, compassion, and humor, and you’ll have a lot of space to participate and collaborate in the process.
Without a doubt, Wendy Newman is one of the most talented and innovative thought leaders that I have ever had the privilege of consulting. Her research and approach create opportunities for breakthroughs and healing that is unparalleled, and I believe most of that is due to her compassion and humor. If you’ve never taken any of her courses, don’t wait. Sign up immediately and read all her books. She’s brilliant, relatable, and I am so grateful to have been able to work with her.”

“Thank you for helping to heal my past, and for presenting this difficult topic in an accessible, relatable and fun way! Sincere gratitude.”
– Holly S. – Scottsdale, Arizona
“This workshop gave me a new confidence about my body, and the courage to discuss my sexual needs with my partner without feeling embarrassed or like I’m pressuring him. I love you for that, Wendy!”
– Nicole S. – Vancouver, Canada
“This workshop gave me a new freedom around sex and men. I have been carrying around some old ideas and old hurts based on how I thought men felt and acted regarding sex. I really had the old ideas busted open and sex and men de-mystified. Especially the section on infidelity, non-monogamy, and porn. Thank you for this uncommon understanding of men, and ultimately allowing me to love and appreciate myself in a new way I never knew was possible.”
– Heather I. – San Mateo, California
Who Attends Sex, Love & Intimacy?
If you’re a woman who’s committed to having a loving and empowered relationship with your body, a kinder/gentler relationship with yourself and your sexual past, and a vibrant romantic relationship with your partner(s) then, this workshop is for you.
Whatever your relationship status — single, married, coupled, partnered, divorcing, “it’s complicated” — if you want to connect in a more authentic and delicious way to sex and intimacy, this course is for you.
Most participants in Sex, Love & Intimacy are women who fall anywhere from their thirties through their sixties. Due to the subject matter, and my frank, sometimes potty-mouth style, this workshop is only for adult women over eighteen years of age.
Why You Might Want to Learn From Me
I have been studying, interviewing and understanding men since 2002.
When I was a girl, men in my life had already broken my heart. Then as a teen, it kept happening over and over and over again. By age twelve, I’d learned that men were unsafe. They were bigger and stronger and they’d take what they wanted.
In my early twenties I met a lovely, incredibly easy-going guy. He was the safest man I’d ever encountered. I loved him, but I picked him because of my deep-seated fear of strong masculinity. I was equating all masculine characteristics with the negative experiences I’d had with certain men in the past.
In 2002, I began my journey to heal my relationship with men and the masculine. I dove head-first into studying partnership by learning from relationship expert, Alison Armstrong. By 2006, I was leading her workshops, and for over a decade I have led her courses as well as trained others to do so. Subsequently, I created my own curriculum for women as well.
Over the years, I have interviewed thousands of men on every topic you could imagine. I focus on what matters most to women, like what men think about love, commitment, relationships, and fidelity as well as what it means to be a man.
I’ve learned a lot! And I can’t wait to share it all with you so you can enjoy the understanding, pleasure, and love you’ve always wanted.
