About This Event
Sexual intimacy is such a taboo topic. It often seems to get glossed over with some generalized ‘tips’. This event will be the exact opposite!
This candid forum will be a deep-dive on all things sex, and provide tools on how to develop a healthy and positive attitude towards sex and intimate connection.
We want couples to leave the event with an understanding that a thriving sex life is an important part of a healthy relationship, as well as with tools and tips they can begin implementing immediately.

This book will take you on a romantic adventure of both trial and error, love, and the real life experiences of a marriage that’s not perfect, but perfect for us. As we journey through life we found our #4.
