{Podcast 025} Juliet Allen: becoming a sexually empowered woman

Juliet Allen She Makes Magic

If you’ve been following us for a while you’ll know, a couple of years back, I hit publish on a very vulnerable post about my sexuality. To this day, it is still the most vulnerable post I have ever shared.

Funny, it was about that same time that our community really started to grow and engage. And then, the stories rolled in. Emails, Facebook messages, even conversations with my closest friends. Women opening up to me and telling me that, at some point in their life, in one way or another, they had been through the same thing.

And I thought to myself: why the hell isn’t anybody talking about this?

Finally, I decided to do something about it.

Meet Juliet Allen. A straight-talking sexologist with a passion for empowering women to embrace their true sexual nature.

This interview is slightly different from the ones I’ve done before. Sure, we talk a little about Juliet’s journey from coffee barista to sexologist. But the juice is in Juliet’s sexual awakening.

Listen in as we take a deep dive into her sexual journey – from a teenager kissing her girlfriends in nightclubs, to the birth of her daughter, to falling in love with a woman, to her experience with homophobia, to coming out as bisexual. Juliet talks powerfully about what it means to be attracted to the same sex.

It’s inspiring to hear from a woman who is willing to bravely explore and follow her sexual desires, wherever they take her.

What I love about Juliet is her cheeky, fun and no-shame approach to all things sex. And why shouldn’t it be that way? We all came from sex. Most of us have sex at some point in our life.

To all the women who reached out to me with your stories of both sexual confusion and sexual awakening, thank you. I created this interview for you.

{Podcast 23} Rosie Rees: get naked and go your own way

Rosie Rees She Makes Magic Podcast

If you could do anything in the world, and you knew that you could not fail, what would you want to do?

Back in 2012, sick, stressed and tired from working in the corporate world, this was the question that Rosie Rees’ good friend asked of her. Rosie, without pausing or even thinking, responded with “sex therapist”.

Strangely, at the time, Rosie was working as a recruitment agent, she was in a toxic relationship with an abusive and controlling man, and her Christian upbringing had imposed on her a whole world of hidden shame and guilt around her sexuality. It felt like a sex therapist couldn’t be farther from Rosie’s truth.

Yet Rosie says that her friend’s question sparked a fire and passion within her, giving her hope that her life could be turned around.

And, with this new-found hope, she went on to leave her corporate job and toxic relationship, start her online blog and coaching business, become a yoga instructor, quit meat, alcohol and cigarettes and, most recently, birth her Australian nude yoga tour.

Once Rosie sets her mind to something, she certainly doesn’t let fear, other people’s opinions or rational logic stand in her way.

If you’ve ever felt the pull to walk a completely different path from the one you’re on now but feel like it’s too scary, overwhelming or just plain irrational, this story is for you.

Enjoy.
