This is for you if
- Your sex life isn’t what you want it to be. Maybe that’s how it’s always been or it’s recently become tough because: work, kids, illness, family drama. You know, life.
- You don’t feel understood. Even if you knew what you wanted, you have no clue how to ask for it.
It’s just so awkward!
Nevermind that you’d have to be in the mood for sex first.
You’re not alone.
Here’s what some of our clients have said about what moved them to try sex and relationship counseling—for themselves, for their partners, and for their relationships:
“Before working with Kait, I didn’t feel confident enough to initiate things or sexy enough to put myself out there and let myself really feel desired. My husband and I had moved closer to family and were being pulled in a million different directions. We were having less sex, and weren’t as affectionate, flirty, and playful with each other.”
“When we first met, everything was great and we were having sex all the time. Around 2 years in, sex wasn’t happening so much and it started it being an issue. It became this mountainous thing for us, a continuous struggle and the only thing we couldn’t just sit down and talk to each other about. We’d have sex and things were great. A couple of days would go by without anything and it’d turn into a fight where we both were upset. We couldn’t break this cycle.”
“My husband and I were totally in a rut. Sex was kind of hard and awkward for us. I was not usually in the mood, and had a hard time relaxing to really get into it. I was too in my head and so worried about, “Am I gonna be able to orgasm?” I had a hard time thinking what my fantasy would be and what I really desired.”
“I feared my partner and I ultimately were not sexually compatible, thanks to my higher libido and more varied (less vanilla) sexual interests. I felt frustrated, resentful, and like I was hiding part of myself.”
You’re a hard worker—but you haven’t been able
to solve this with hard work.
You’ve tried so much already.
You talked it to death. You read the books, talked to a couple’s therapist, did (several) 30 day sex challenges. You don’t know where else to go from here. It feels like your relationship hinges on figuring this out.
Since launching PbK in 2009, we’ve helped thousands of women
like you find #freedominpleasure
We’ve spent more than a decade working with womxn* and couples to find #freedominpleasure—without feeling awkward, twisting themselves into a pretzel, or spending hours a day on intimacy-building activities. Sometimes they’re a little shy about sex, but our clients crave connection, excitement, & satisfaction. We work together to achieve that.
If you’re ready to try new things and rethink (or ditch) everything that society has taught you about sex, pleasure, intimacy, relationship & your body to pursue #freedominpleasure—let’s work together!
Our founder Kait Scalisi is devoted to working directly with counseling clients and finding a way through the daily noise to #freedominpleasure.
My clients regularly comment that I’m the first person they could really open up to. As one client put it:
You understand the aspects of sex that people don’t talk about: real things, practical things, and working with oneself instead of against oneself to enjoy a physical experience instead of ‘just do it anyway’
My background in neuroscience and public health, combined with my experience living and loving as a person with disabilities, helps me provide my clients and students (that’s you!) with a unique and fully realized perspective on what it really takes to keep the spark alive (or fan the spark into a flame)—no matter what life throws at them.
Here’s what a few of our clients have said:
“Working with Kait has been so good. The biggest thing I’ve realized is taking ownership of me again. I used to do that and I lost it along the way. And I just feel so good. It was very uncomfortable at first—it still isn’t perfect and I still have to think about it—but then I go, “No I’m worth it and I’m doing it.”
Working with Kait created a new level of openness and intimacy.”
“The very best thing [about working with Kait] is that I have been initiating more conversations about sex with my partner, desires, fantasies, past experiences, etc. I have found better ways to talk to him about how I need my body to be touched—both feelings of safety and what I like sexually!”
“My life looks so different now. It has become more fulfilling in every way. I know my body so much better. I feel sexier. Powerful, like I am in a novel. I’m more confident and flirty, and always turned on. I know exactly what I want and I don’t think or worry about it—I just do it.”
If you can’t wait a moment longer to change your sex life and get your glow-up…
Think all of that’s super great, but need a more practical outline of services?
I love the way you think!
How Counseling Works
I work privately with womxn and couples on a case-by-case basis. My clients are newlyweds, new parents, housewives, cancer survivors, SAHMs, grad students, CEOs, people with chronic illnesses, and everyone in between. They tend to be a little shy about sex, but crave connection, excitement, & satisfaction.
I offer a number of packages to fit every budget and do just that. Before we get started, we’ll decide together which package is the best fit for you. No matter WHAT happens in your relationship along the way, we’ll address it in the brave space of counseling so you get back to finding freedom in pleasure. That’s the power of having an nonjudgmental sexpert in your corner, cheering you on and supporting you through it all.
Along the way, my clients tell me there’s lots of laughter, tears, revelations, and healing. They stop feeling something is wrong with them, and end up with more passion—and a richer, more fulfilling life.
All Counseling Packages Include:
A Brave + Safe Space to Open Up
Ongoing emotional and strategic support for your sex life and your relationship, if you’re in one. We’ll go as deep and slowly as needed to make sure we deal with the blocks you have that keep you from living a passionate and adventurous life. It’s like talking to a friend—but a really nice, non-judgy one. This is YOUR space to be authentic and honest, without worrying about disappointing anyone. It’s all about you!
So, You Think You’ve Tried It All? Inventory
My intake form + assessments helps me get to know you and your relationship, and leverage your self-awareness and all the things you’ve already tried. This way we don’t waste time rehashing things that haven’t worked or bringing me up to speed on where your relationship and/or your sex life is right now. Instead, we jump right in to exploring the aspects of your life that actually impact your intimacy and finding freedom in pleasure.
No two sex lives or relationships are the same, so the advice you get shouldn’t be one-size-fits all either. My relationship and sex counseling emphasizes creating a sex life that works for you, your life, & your relationship—regardless of the “shoulds.” Every session is tailored to you, for you. These private phone calls are your space to open up, ask questions, cry, celebrate, rant, discover new desires, and make a plan so you feel empowered and know exactly what to do when we hang up.
Steady, Ongoing Support
Whichever package you choose, we’ll talk at least twice a month. Building this ongoing support + accountability into your life changes everything. No more waiting for another disagreement, disappointment, or frustration to get help. We weave our calls into your schedule, so the support and awareness become part of your relationship and life. I bring empathy and sexpertise to every call, so you can relax knowing all you have to do is show up and share your experiences and will be fully supported in learning and asking for what you want.
Customized, Adjustable, Practical Next Steps
At the start of our work, we define a main goal to work towards. Each call, I’ll share the information, tools, and practices you need to get there. We end by updating your Spark Plan, an adaptable, individualized plan that gives you fun & practical ideas to deepen your connection, and get your spark back (or fan it into flame). This is sex advice that you actually look forward to trying—and that doesn’t require you to contort yourself into a pretzel, spend hours a day on homework, or feel awkward (unless that’s your thing, of course)—and is easy enough to do, regardless of what life throws at you. As each win builds upon the next, you find #freedominpleasure even as you navigate inevitable challenges.
Updates and Check-Ins
Before each call, you share wins and challenges to help you process what’s happening in your life and/or your relationship. This gives you clarity, keeps you accountable, and records all the beautiful transformations you experience. It also guides our call so we can make the most of our time together and I can share sound, evidence-based feedback and information about the aspects of your life that actually impact your intimacy. You’ll feel even more empowered looking back and seeing how much progress you made while working with me.
To support your journey, you’ll get additional, supplementary materials, including pleasure worksheets and product recommendations, to help deepen your connection to yourself and your partner(s). These will be shared as needed to support, not overwhelm, you.
