A new show is currently casting couples in the San Francisco area to take part in a one-day retreat hosted by me. The focus of this retreat is helping plus size people have a mega babely sex life! Whether partners are differently sized or both partners are full bodied, anyone who needs a little help in the sexy times department is welcome to reach out! As with all of my workshops, I tend to focus on people who have not had the opportunity of being part of the body positive community previously. If I were offering this retreat privately it would be $450.
Q: Will I be having sex or getting naked on camera?
Q: Who is leading the retreat?
A: Me! I have an MA in Human Sexuality Studies and my speciality is working with people around body image. I am a big bodied woman - 250 pounds - who identifies as sexy! I'm open and non-judgmental and people who work with me tend to have a lot of fun and leave the experience feeling really good about themselves and their bodies.
Q: Are there any costs I will incur?
Q: What size do I have to be to be considered "plus size?"
A: "Plus size" is kind of subjective and varies a bit. I am looking for couples where one or both partners feels that their size is preventing them from feeling sexy or having the sex life they want.
Q: I'm interested but I'm not used to being filmed.
A: Perfect! Your interest in being involved is way more important than experience.
The retreat will be filmed, but will not air on television (only shown to networks).
