Today, we welcome back the fabulous Chris Maxwell Rose. Chris has been an independent sex educator for over a decade. Along with her wife, Charlotte Mia Rose, Chris runs PleasureMechanics.com and hosts the popular sex podcast Speaking of Sex. Their online courses allow you to master new erotic skills, ranging from Couples Massage to Foreplay Mastery and beyond.
Chris is also a survivor of multiple counts of childhood sexual abuse and teenage assault, and is dedicated to supporting other survivors in recovering their ability to enjoy sex again, on their own terms.
In this episode, Chris guides us a little deeper into learning how to heal our bodies with loving touch; she shares some great techniques we can apply right away in order to reclaim the right of feeling pleasure and connection from our own bodies. Chris also explains how to communicate with your partner in a way that allows you to remain safe, as well as respects them and their needs.
Please join us in this great conversation and let us know how you’re doing. Always remember, this is a life-long journey. Don’t judge the quality of the rest of your life by where you are today… it can be difficult, it can be scary, it can be the saddest, most frustrating part of healing at times. But you’re worth it. You deserve agency over your own body, your own pleasure.
