Katrina means PURE.
Marie means REBELLION.
I am an international sexual empowerment coach and priestess of all things pleasure.
I am a crusader of self love and sexual liberation.
I believe we have the power to change the world through valuing our own pleasure.
I believe that up-leveling in this area of life is one of the greatest services we can do for ourselves, but also for our partners, our families, and our communities! Empowered women will awaken the world!
I am so touched you are here. I trust it is not by accident.
My name is Katrina Marie and I believe in sex magic.
That is a pretty far out statement for a girl who was raised in a Christian fundamentalist community who used to think she was asexual. I was not always a Pleasure Priestess. In fact, not so very long ago, I was laying in my bed, having anxiety attacks over my sexual “disfunction” on the regular. You see, I never really wanted to have sex. Sure, I did at the beginning, but when it fizzled out, I became a strategic sexual avoidant. How long could I spread it out? What is the least amount I have to “put out.” I only had sex out of obligation. Giving it away like a reluctant gift. I remember feeling so triggered by conversations about sex with my husband at the time. I was wracked with guilt. I felt like the problem in our relationship. And at the same time I felt exhausted, unappreciated, and unloved.
Let me tell you something, when sex in a relationship is great, its all good. It’s not the be all and end all, but it is good. When sex isn’t happening, it is usually much more painful than “not good". I remember wishing that my husband would not have a sex drive either, because then my problem would just go away. Every time he would want to talk about my zero sex drive and what I was doing to change that, I would go into a full blown anxiety attack. Yup. I was scared.
Looking back, it blows my mind that I wished the most powerful part of me away.
If you are still with me, I want to tell you a bit of my story of my sexual awakening and liberation.
At the height of my desperation, I booked myself in to a nude masturbation workshop with 88 year old “Mother of Masturbation” Betty Dodson. Yes, I signed up for my first Bodysex workshop. I was convinced it was going to fix me and make me want to have sex.
What is revealed to me is that I was carrying a LOT of shame around my body, and I had never allowed myself to have desires independent of a partner’s needs. I had sexual service hard-wired in to me, which had me resisting all things sexual. Was it me, was it my marriage, was it the sex, was it my body? At this point it was a jumbled mess. I didn’t know myself or what I wanted, and I had been functioning for others for so long, I didn’t really trust myself.
I left the workshop on a mission to create a sexual relationship with myself so that I could figure out what I was actually drawn to. I wanted to discover and develop my own processes for taking care of and honouring me. I wanted to have the sureness and confidence to invite someone into that experience from a really genuine place of wanting to make magic together.
My life began to transform. It was as if I came into my body again. I began to value my feelings. I began to let go of the guilt around letting others down. I began to honour my truth. I discovered that vulnerability was a powerful clarifier. I was mustering up courage I never knew I had.
It was a major Kali moment for me. You know the goddess of destruction and sexuality? Yeah. Her. I started destroying everything that wasn’t serving me. I dove into the unknown. And I was scared. I was in a financially dependent marriage, my family was super unsupportive at the time. Everyone was mad at me. I had no idea how I was going to make it work. At the same time, I knew that I couldn’t keep going the way I had been. So I chose trust in myself. I decided to back me. I wrote affirmations every day, reminding myself that honouring my self will bring me into alignment, even if it makes a big mess for a hot minute. I didn’t know where I was going to live, how I was going to make money, or how my family would ever understand.
Two days after I decided I needed to leave my marriage, a long time yoga student (I had taught yoga for 10 years at this point) reached out. She said she had been pulling fairy cards all summer and she knew she needed to become a yoga teacher. She wanted me to train her. I agreed. I thought there might be 1 or 2 more students who wanted to learn, and I would be able to scrape by financially. A wave of relief came over me. I had jumped, and two days later I was caught. I was going to be ok. 8 more students signed up that month.
That same month I got an incredible apartment a couple blocks away from the yoga studio, and I returned to NYC to learn how to facilitate Bodysex circles myself. Bodysex was a powerful catalyst in my life. I wanted to help other women begin to know and support themselves. I thought about how the world would be different if women came from this place. I received the call.
I have lead these Bodysex workshops in Canada for 2 years now, and have spent the last year guiding women into Orgasmic Living in my online coaching programs.
I am about to embark on a world tour of raising pleasure consciousness.
I am honoured to have you here on this journey.
