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.
In this interview, Juliet shares:
+ How and why she became a sexologist and what a day in the life of a sexologist looks like.
+ How she struggled with putting herself “out there” as a sex coach and the practical steps she took to overcome this fear.
+ Her own journey of exploring her sexuality with both men and women and why she believes coming out as bisexual was important for herself and other women in the same position.
+ Her experience with homophobia and how she worked through the rejection and negativity associated with this experience.
+ Her advice for women who are feeling called to explore their sexuality and their sexual desires.
+ Why money and sex are intertwined and how finances can influence your sex life.
+ The importance of being open and honest with your children about sex.
