episode 267: becoming the queen of sexual wellness with Pamela Madsen

Pamela is a trailblazer in women’s wellness known for her transformative approach to self-discovery and intimate connection. As a Somatic Wellness Educator, Pamela has dedicated over a decade to helping women reclaim their bodies and reignite their desires.

Her retreats and teachings have facilitated incredible transformations, liberating women from shame and trauma, and guiding them on profound journeys to sensual, sexual, and emotional bliss.

Known as the OG of sexual wellness retreats, Pamela is a fearless advocate for women’s health and integrated sexuality who leverages her raw honesty and well-informed wit to help strip the stigma from women’s wellness, female desire and pleasure, body image, and infertility.

She is the author of Shameless: How I Ditched The Diet, Got Naked, Found True Pleasure and Still Got Home In Time To Cook Dinner. And she has appeared on Sex with Emily, Oprah, O Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Women’s Health, Buzzfeed, 60 Minutes, CNN, The New York Times, USA Today, and more. Formerly, she was the Founder and first Executive Director of The American Fertility Association.

This woman is incredible – and our conversation was truly one of the most powerful and potent I’ve had since launching the show in 2017. She is such a badass and a truly poetic speaker. I have no doubt you’ll be hanging on her every word.

Inside, we chat about:

  • What it was like to start an anonymous blog about sexuality with 40,000 readers back in the day, and how it wound up costing her a big role in her career
  • Her decision to go all in on embodiment work, sexuality, and her idea to create a safe space for women to reconnect with their bodies
  • What it looked like for Back to the Body to be birthed into the world without a business plan – and the incredible growth that happened almost immediately
  • How she built a 7-figure business with retreats as the core source of revenue and how she’s planning to scale beyond that
  • And so much more!
