As an international speaker, best-selling author, healing practitioner, educator and CEO of Orgasmic Life, I empower sexual energy for life.
For over two decades, I lived a double life balancing my career as a middle leader and teacher in secondary education with my alternative and secret lifestyle in swinging, kink and BDSM.
This alternative lifestyle was the place I connected to my true authentic self, but there was a deep sense of fear, shame and guilt about my life choices. I was petrified of being judged, terrified of shaming my family, worried about losing my job and frightened of being ‘found out’. I suffered episodes of depression and physical illness, including mild alopecia. I battled with my emotions, my sexuality, my needs and wants. I felt conflict in all areas of life as my choices challenged my upbringing, my social and cultural values, and my perceptions of what was right and wrong.
