“Felice Newman saved our 20+ year relationship from LBD (lesbian bed death). As her clients, we can't say enough about how much she's done for lesbians everywhere and the two of us in particular.” — Berkeley

Felice Newman is on a mission. She believes that a dwindling sex life is not inevitable for long-term partners. In fact, as Felice tells her clients, lesbian partners need not settle for anything less than a completely satisfying sex life. Sexual Partnering for Lesbian Couples is a half-day workshop designed to help you achieve the sex life you desire.

When you have sex, you bring with you the whole package of who you are: your sexual history, your beliefs about sex and gender, your accumulated sexual wisdom, your erotic imagination and yearnings, and your physical structure. As a somatic practitioner and sex educator, Felice addresses the whole “self,” including sensations, desires, tissues, emotions, thoughts, muscles, breath, movement, language, history. This workshop will include basic somatic practices including sensation awareness, and self-observation.

Felice Newman is author of The Whole Lesbian Sex Book: A Passionate Guide for All of Us, featured on the L Word. Felice Newman is a sex educator and Somatic Coach certified by the Strozzi Institute. She is a member of The American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT) and the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS). She lives with her partner in the San Francisco Bay Area where she coaches individuals and couples. Her next book will be a sex guide for lesbian couples.
