"I like sex, but we're kind of in a rut. I just have so many other priorities and I'm so exhausted from everything else everyday, I don't have the time or energy to prioritize it."
"Sex is mostly for my husband. I could take it or leave it honestly. Once I had kids, my sex drive went out the window."
"I have a friend who swears the key to happiness is a good sex life, but that feels so out of reach for me. What does that even look like? I'm curious what having a better sex life could do for me, but I wouldn't even know where to start."
If these problems are sounding familiar- you are not alone!
These are quotes from my readers, but they perfectly describe my life five years ago.
Five years ago if you had asked me what my ideal sex life looked like, I would have said, "Have sex twice a year."
With three young kids, I had SO many other priorities, sex was just not making the cut. How would sex HELP ME?
I'd already been writing marriage articles for my blog (marriagelaboratory.com) for a while. But it wasn't until I'd received literally hundreds of emails asking questions about sex from my readers that I finally decided I needed to figure this sex thing out.
I dove in, reading stacks of books and taking e-courses in order to gain as many tools as I could. I also started putting what I was learning into practice.
I was SHOCKED at the results of my experimenting. Improving and prioritizing my sex life filled my life with excitement, fun, love and passion that spilled over into every other area of my life! All of these improved DRASTICALLY:
Did you know a good sex life could do all that?! I didn't!
Are you ready to learn to love sex? I'm SO excited to teach you what I've learned to help YOU discover your biggest barriers to passion and to bust through them.
Who is this course for?
Do you find yourself thinking about sex, "So what?"
Do you feel like you have hangups about sex? (low libido? religious/cultural misconceptions? "sex is for my marriage and my husband but not for me"?)
Doesn't the busy, tiring, kid-filled, work-filled day take enough energy without having to worry about trying to have a good sex life?
Are you just curious what a positive, regular, enthusiastic sex-life can do for you?
Then you're in the right place.
This course is for women who are ready to acknowledge and break down their barriers to desire, and who want to learn some new mindsets and ideas for keeping their marriage fresh and passionate.
What this course is NOT is just a list of techniques, tips and tricks to spice things up (though I do include some of those). My main goal and most of the work you'll do will be changing your own mind: overcoming negative mindsets, seeing yourself and sex in new, positive ways and walking you through the basics of ... well, learning to love sex!
To that end, I've specifically geared this course toward women who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) who feel stuck in their sex lives and want to learn to love sex either again or for the first time! Being a part of this church, I have a good grasp on common hang ups and misconceptions in this culture and feel confident speaking towards those.
"But what if I'm not LDS? Is this course still for me?"
While I address specific roadblocks to sexually conservative cultures in a few of the lessons, the material will apply to anyone! I really think every couple would benefit from filling out the journal prompts and homework.
And if you buy the course and feel like it is not for you, if you email me within the first month of purchase, I will give you a FULL REFUND! So, there really isn't anything to lose!
"This course is incredible!! If you are sitting on the fence, jump right off & invest in yourself! Celeste does such a great job at clearly explaining things in a way that feels doable & fun. I have a new found excitement for sex, as well as a new definition (which is huge for me!) & I can’t wait to see how the knowledge I now have will bless my life!" - Sarah"
I have read, studied, and researched sex and marriage for a few years, so I wasn’t expecting to hear or learn anything new. I was wrong! Celeste breaks it down so well and really focuses on helping women overcome cultural barriers that keep them from experiencing the best sex they can have. Open your mind and buy this course today!" - Emily
"Celeste is bringing sexy back! Thank you Celeste, for reminding us that sex isn't just for men. I'm already starting to 'get my head in the game' so that I can improve my sex life in a big way. You can me so many useful tips and tools to use as I change my mindset about how I want my sex life to be. Whether you are newly engaged or have been married for 15 years (like me), this is an awesome course to help you navigate through the sometimes difficult topics surrounding sex." - Amanda
"Talking about sex, especially as an LDS woman, can be awkward and uncomfortable and something I only really do with the closest of friends. Finding this course has been so helpful and made a significant difference in my sex life with my husband. Each section has journal prompts and homework to turn the theories and ideas into action and see what works for you. I am grateful to have found this course and am sure I will refer back to it for years to come." - Casey
