I Want to Feel Sexy 24/7. Do You?

I want to radiate joy and vibrancy. Every day. I want to choose love over fear. In every action. I want to dance the playful path through life. No matter what obstacles I encounter or emotions I surf. I want that for you too. When women connect to their sexy they glow. Deep yearnings become clear. Big dreams feel ‘delightfully doable.’ Life becomes richer and more fulfilling. The secret to living life the I HEART Sexy way is knowing how to plug-in to your sexy self. To discover who she is, what she adores, what ignites her:  sensually, sensationally, sexually, passionately, erotically, playfully… . I Thought I Knew Everything About My Siren For eight years I’ve explored every aspect of my sexy self. Multiple times. I know her music, color, clothing, texture and environment preferences, favorite dance moves and so much more. I thought I knew every spark, every possible way to ignite this sassy siren residing in me. I knew I’d grow and evolve, just figured big leaps were behind me and what was left would be minor tinkering. Last summer I worked intensely on a project. I took plenty of play breaks dancing on the beach, lunching with girlfriends

What is Sexy? Rant transforms into an “I’m Too Sexy” Romp

What is Sexy? Rant transforms into an “I’m Too Sexy” Romp

Beaming them with the most infectious and sexiest curve ever—a smile ~ LC Ho . Bliss on Baker Beach Despite the ‘no show’ glow from the rising sun and setting moon Saturday’s dance session was full of magic moments. One of the highlights was Radiate by Jack Johnson filling my toes with the tickle of champagne bubbles. I tugged off my socks, then ambled toward SF Bay, leaving trailing tracks in the sand. At the water’s edge, the waves and I played a toe tapping game. And I radiated my joy. Take a peek For those who’s hunt for music is as insatiable as mine, here’s the entire Gold + Infinite = Fun playlist on Spotify. Back home after showering, I dressed in a leopard pencil skirt and teal curve-hugging top because I felt too hot and sexy to wear puttering-around-the-house t-shirt and pants. . I Stumbled into Seriousness + Stayed Too Long Friday’s Valentine’s Day post calling for women-only dance as a way to heal our culture upset several fellow pole dance bloggers, in part, because they believed it implied that men alone are to blame for violence against women. That wasn’t my intention. I actually believe women-only dance is

Happy Call of the Siren Day! (aka Sentiments Day)

Happy Call of the Siren Day! (aka Sentiments Day)

Stoke Your Fire! Suffrage is often called the ‘first wave’ of feminism. Its beginnings often traced to the first women’s rights convention held in Seneca Falls, NY in July 1848 where many attendees signed the Declaration of Sentiments, which “held that men and woman are created equal.” If you look more closely, the Seneca conference was about much more than suffrage and even political rights. I’m thrilled to see the Declaration of Sentiments discussed in The Huffington Post. The declaration was also about empowering women. And what the framers of the Declaration knew was that real freedom for women would and could only come when a culture had been created that was as psychologically empowering as it was politically egalitarian. ~ Hugo Schwyzer Call of the Siren Day (aka Sentiments Day) I’d like to see the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Sentiments as a national holiday on par with the one we just celebrated for that other more famous Declaration. My vision for July 20th is a day to celebrate and honor all that our culture traditionally thinks of as feminine, and therefore undervalues, such as sentiment, emotion, beingness, intuition, nature, cooperation and connection. I declare July

7 Secrets I Learned Pole Dancing in My 40s that I Wish I Knew in My 20s

7 Secrets I Learned Pole Dancing in My 40s that I Wish I Knew in My 20s

June’s Pole Dance Blog Hop theme is “things i wish i had known before i started pole dancing” Pole and sensual dance gifted me with body bliss. It taught me how to drop in to my body. And listen to her speak. Life keeps getting better because of pole dancing. Here are 7 secrets I learned pole dancing in my forties that I wish I knew in my twenties. 1. Feelings are our Friends Before pole dancing I learned the importance of feeling emotions in my body. If I hadn’t, I never would’ve had the courage (or skills) to feel the fear—that I’d be the least flexible and fattest in the class—and go anyway. Still, I resisted ‘negative’ feelings. Pole dancing taught me to welcome them all. To appreciate the beauty in tears (of joy, awe, sadness), vulnerability and messy imperfection (my most recent Aha). Dive deep into emotions. Swim and swirl in them. Revel in them. Be with them. Express them through dance, music, drawing, painting, etc. There are gifts waiting to be discovered on the other side. Besides, when the universe wants you to learn a lesson, she’ll just keep triggering you until you get it anyway. When
