Calling women looking to usher in a hot girl summer!  We are launching a virtual book club that will meet monthly for six months, beginning April 2022.  We will use a variety of media to encourage discussion on topics like sexuality, pain with sex and sexual pain, the sex you are having vs. the sex you want to be having, how to communicate about tough topics, and deconstructing sexual scripts, purity culture, and all the lessons we learned about sex that now, well, don’t really fit so right.  If you’re interested, please join us!  Register your spot by paying here. Email me at sara@findyourselfbethat.com for more information and to confirm your spot.
