Raising Vaginas

The idea behind "Raising Vaginas" is to provoke an evolution in parenting To help cultivate a COMMUNITY that empowers our girls with the knowledge they need to be able to develop self love before they decide to love someone else romantically I want to create a sex positive culture that raises our girls (and boys) to be aware of pleasure without having to share a sexual experience prematurely with someone else In my book, I share helpful ideas on ways to have those difficult conversations to help our boys to develop a level of RESPECT and appreciation for the female body, its functions, and capabilities outside of sex, and, to help our girls navigate those life experiences with POWER!
