It’s Truth + Tequila Tuesday!
This week we have a question from Anonymous who says the following:
I’m hoping you can explain what happened to me. I was having sex with my husband the other night. I was on top and sitting up, not my normal position. He had his hands gripping my hips and his thumbs were pressed deeply into my womb area. When I orgasmed I burst out into tears and then had what seemed like tens minutes of crying + laughing. This has NEVER happened to me before. It felt like a giant release. Is this normal?
Well, Anonymous…I LOVE that you shared this with us! You had a beautiful and transformative experience. My wish is that everyone listening has or will have a similar experience.
There are a couple of layers here…..

It’s Truth + Tequila Tuesday!
This week’s questions comes from Sarah and she says:
Every year for my job I have to take risk training on suicide and sexual assault. It’s a requirement. The same thing happens to me each year. I start to get really tired and a feeling of exhaustion comes over me…My stomach hurts and I get a really painful sensation throughout my body that’s very, very uncomfortable. I don’t like any of these feelings. Is there a way I can just detatch from them so I can get through taking these tests? Help!
