the witch in the northwoods
33, femme, queer, she/her, they/them
Intuitive. Witchy. Weird. Not necessarily words I would use to always describe myself, but words I try to live up to. Dedicating the last 6 years of my life to this work has been nothing short of extraordinary.
This is where I share my passion about the human body, intimacy, and all the wild things. Oh! And of course sex! It's amazing to me how much there is to know about the human body, sexuality/sensuality, and the way we dance to our inner erotic music.
Hoping to take this work well beyond my dreams, I am constantly finding parallels to how intimacy goes beyond our bodies. When we learn that we are the source of our pleasure, it is more than just our sex lives that become brighter; everything becomes brighter.
In my spare time: I collect houseplants, eat lots of carbs, adore sugar, and worship the moon. I read science fiction and have a soft spot in my heart for Octavia Butler and Margaret Atwood. I am currently inspired by adrienne mare brown and Bell Hooks. Writing is how I process my emotions and I've been told I'm good at it. Check out my blog for some of my work.
