How do you relate to your pleasure? Do you find it innocent or guilty?
What if you believed your primal urges were the most innocent and authentic parts of you?
Would you treat yourself different than you do now?
Would you honor your pleasures and desires more, if you saw them as precious and important?
The part of our brain that thinks is the thing that tells us we’re “not supposed to” want things... but "evolutionarily-speaking" that’s actually the youngest part of our brain... on the other hand, the part of our DNA that drives our primal urge for pleasure evolved billions of years earlier… and that part of us is exponentially older and wiser…
When we are drawn towards pleasure, it’s our body's wisdom speaking to us. Not our thinking minds.
Our bodies know so much more than our minds do (if our minds were left to figure out how to get our lungs and eyeballs and kidneys and endocrine glands to all work, we’d be screwed.)
Our pleasure (and the extent to which we pay attention to our bodies’ desire for pleasure) can be the answer to everything from better sex to easy weight loss to deeper authenticity… and in this episode of Women Wanting Women, Jena la Flamme, a leading sacred sexual empowerment and body confidence coach, explains how.

Jena la Flamme is a leading Sacred Sexual Empowerment and Body Confidence coach.
Her teachings show that pleasure is not a contradiction to a healthy, fulfilled life, but an absolutely necessary, essential ingredient. Jena's mission is to spread the knowledge that our bodies are sacred and so is sensuality and sexuality. She preaches that when we embrace these dimensions of ourselves with trust, self-love and dedication, our lives flourish.
Through her private coaching, eCourses, movement journeys, meditations, transformational workshops and ceremonies, Jena helps women reconnect with their bodies as wise, intelligent, intuitive, pleasure-loving animals.
During her ten year struggle with food, weight, and bad body image, Jena despised her body and was highly suspicious of pleasure in general. This lasted until she discovered that her issue wasn't that she was having too much pleasure, it was that she wasn't having enough! As she learned to trust the wisdom of her body and to trust pleasure, including her sensual and sexual appetites, she came to peace with food and her body confidence soared.
Since embracing pleasure as a discipline and guiding principle in her life, Jena devoted herself to showing women around the world how to be in tune with the innate, pleasure-loving, sensual wisdom and sexual genius of their bodies. She takes a fierce stand for all women to feel at home in their skin and take pride in themselves and their sensual and fierce feminine nature.
Jena is also a weight loss expert, and published author of Pleasurable Weight Loss: The Secrets of Feeling Great, Losing Weight and Loving Your Life Today.
Jena's unique approach to pleasure, sensuality, sacred sexuality, body confidence, pleasurable weight loss and pleasurable living, have made her a much sought-after teacher.
