Why is POP important?

Did you know that a large proportion of women experience significant sexual problems such as lack of desire/low libido (47%), orgasm problems (45%), arousal issues (40%), lack of sexual and intimate satisfaction (39%), and issues with lubrication (37%) and pain (36%)?
This is due to many reasons, but a HUGE influence is our cultural conditioning and lack of education! That's right, most of us are simply not given the basic tools and understanding of how to even pursue our pleasure (sexual or otherwise!). We wouldn’t bat an eye at taking piano lessons to learn how to play the piano or working with a personal trainer to get in shape, so why not take a course (or two) to learn about your sexuality?
Even most medical professionals are taught only about women's reproductive anatomy, and have very little training about or focus on helping us understand our anatomy of arousal (two completely different systems, though overlapping!).

As a result of participating in the POP Program, I have experienced a new level of conscious awareness of my sexuality and my ability to sense my arousal. What I once thought was lost to me as a 61 year old woman, has now been found, reclaimed, enriched and awakened. Rensselear knows women’s bodies, our trials, tribulations and celebrations. She creates a safe space to acknowledge and transform what we know and don’t know and brings you into an opportunity to deeply discover the wealth of resources we have within each of us. Take this course...it will change your life!

What is POP?

The Pleasure on Purpose (POP) Program is a Somatic-Based, Experiential Course that empowers women to tap into their greatest pleasure potential and erotic intelligence in support of living more fulfilling, inspired and purposeful lives (and sex lives)!

As a Certified Somatic Sex Educator, I have been teaching this material to women for years, helping them overcome these all too common and completely unnecessary problems.  Like many human-nature challenges, there is no quick fix or pill you can pop, but there are some very simple tools that if applied consistently and regularly, will totally transform your Sex, your Relationship(s) and your Life!
I have combined all of this material into one online, live course that you can take from anywhere.

Before taking POP I understood the physical reproductive anatomy, but did not know much about the pleasure anatomy aside from the clitoris (and I am an OBGYN!) This course gave me such a lovely introduction to female pleasure anatomy (which is woefully under-taught in schools, including medical schools) and how to connect with it, use it, and explore it. It also gave me practical tools and techniques that will help some of my patients have a better experience in their own lives as well. The course also gave me hope for a life full of pleasure as I age, and how to maintain and grow my capacity for pleasure over my lifetime, both with my partner and for myself.

Before taking the POP program I was wanting more passion and sexual encounters with my husband. I was nervous at first to talk with people I didn’t know about these intimate topics but Ren creates such safe affirming connected space that it was easy to share with the other women. The deep sharing for others often mirrored and validated my own experience and also gave me areas to grow and challenge myself. Learning about my own arousal anatomy and then sharing that exploration with my partner was empowering and joyful. My partner and I have more open conversations about sex play, have a larger variety of ways to explore our bodies and have more fun and patience with each other. My hope is for anyone taking this program is that they embrace it fully, using the homework and exercises to get to know themselves so much better and expand your capacity for pleasure in many places in your life.
