I’m Dr. Lanae, the mama behind The MamaSutra. These are some of the questions I get asked all the time. Maybe these are questions you have too. As a mother of two tween-aged daughters, I’ve had my own challenges – most of them have inspired posts on my blog. Just like lots of you, I’ve stumbled through some tough moments, like the time my daughter found my vibrator and questioned me about it. I’ve had wins. And missteps. One of my daughters even shared her own learnings from observing me dating after divorce and we made that a post. All along, I’ve had to learn how to date and be a sexual being again after motherhood and divorce, while making sure I am the best parent I can be. To me that means giving my children all the information I can for them to make good decisions when it comes time for their own sexual debut.
The truth is, we are sexual beings from birth until death. Parents don’t—and shouldn’t!—stop being sexual once there are kids in the picture. Parenting can be hard as you try to stay connected as lovers. Or if you’re a single parent, maybe trying to have a personal life too. And then, just when you think you have it figured out, your kids start asking YOU questions—where did I come from? What is masturbation? What is sex?
I know how difficult those questions can be! And I know how hard it can be to stay sexual yourself as a parent. That’s why I created The MamaSutra.
As a board certified sexologist, sex coach, and parent coach, I’ve dedicated myself to helping you find some of those answers. If you’re ready to get started, let’s schedule some time to talk. Let’s see how I can help you.
So, what would you like to know?
