PLEASURE CARE
Meeting with a doula who centers their practice around pleasure care can be a great way to explore the language and creative methods of finding joy in everyday life and reorienting oneself toward wonder. We believe that all structures in the body, mind, and spirit are based in personal agency. In pleasure care, your doula will support you in uncovering which possibilities generate an authentic "yes!" and building repetition around gratitude and pleasure in your everyday life.

GOING BEYOND "THE SEX TALK" (Personalized Youth Curriculum)


The Sex Talk. It's a conversation that many parents avoid, dread, or sum up in just one word, "don't". Many caretakers have tons of questions about talking with young people about the topics of intimacy, consent, and sexuality. It's up to a caretaker to determine when to begin this conversation. However, this timeline becomes particularly important when children begin to bring up the conversation. A vast majority of harrassment or sexual abuse happens when the child trusts and/or is dependent on the offender. A young person who is harmed may experience a lot of confusion because of the lack of accountability and limited cultural understanding of youth's sexual development. Further, as children get older and begin to approach puberty they often become curious and resourceful, it can become isolating or even harmful for their caretaker to avoid having a frank discussion. Young people may learn from their peers, other adults, or the internet. Sometimes that information is unreliable. It is up to caretakers to guide the conversation before a young person begins recieving misinformation. Does the idea of talking with young people about sexuality make you uncomfortable, frustrated, or anxious? Collaborating with a sex educator may help to build a framework for your conversation. Summer Diegel is a full-spectrum doula who has worked in sex education for over 8 years, and they're professional background includes experience with all ages. Summer can support you in creating a unique caretaker curriculum for "The Sex Talk" while incorporating your beliefs and values about sexuality with evidence-based information about anatomy, relationships, intimacy, and consent.
