the yOniversity – helping you discover more pleasure

Click here to discover more pleasure with Laura-Doe’s DVD
Pleasure is healthy. It makes us feel happier, more alive, and gives us energy to fuel our days. Whatever the source we experience pleasure as a bodily sensation that quite literally opens and relaxes us.

A lot of women’s issues can be traced to a lack of comfort, a feeling of ‘not rightness’ and sometimes complete disassociation from the central core of our femininity, our genitals and womb, known collectively in Sanskrit as yoni. At the yOniversity we believe that it is of the utmost importance to our health, well-being and creativity to understand our amazing anatomy, our natural capacity for pleasure and to investigate and work towards healing any dis-empowering attitudes we have had foisted onto us about our glorious feminine parts and our unique erotic persona.

Cutting edge scientific research backs up this viewpoint and indicates that by doing this women will feel better about themselves, boost their self-esteem and creativity, reduce depression and increase respect for the feminine in our society.

The yOniversity offers workshops for women and for men seeking to better understand pleasure and the women in their lives. Laura-Doe also teaches yOnilates classes for women, facilitates individual sessions for men, women and couples and is an entertaining and informative speaker for groups.

Many issues around women’s capacity for pleasure start with a chronic lack of education about how our bodies are uniquely and naturally designed to experience it! The yOniversity flagship courses and now our groundbreaking DVD about women’s arousal anatomy present the details that have been systematically removed from medical textbooks since the Victorian era. And new research about how our brain and nervous system contribute to pleasure has only been discovered in the past decade. It is essential information for all women and the men who love them.

Talking to kids about sex Talking to kids about sex
Studies show that those who report having easy, open conversations about sex with mum and/or dad are more likely to delay sexual activity, have fewer partners, and use contraceptives when they do have sex. However, when parents feel discomfort, shame or embarrassment on the topic, young people are left to learn about sexuality from friends, television, music, advertisements and the internet. These sources present a skewed and at times dangerous view.
