03 May Monica Day: Talking All Things Sex with the Instigator of Aliveness
Episode 53: Monica Day
This week on the show, Monica Day joins me to share her expertise around sex, love, and relationships. I also share my thoughts on the theme that we will be exploring over the next couple of weeks—love and connection.
Monica and I discuss:
- Being aware of some relationship patterns and wanting to heal those patterns
- Learning that as a woman you should take ownership of your sex
- How studying your orgasm enables you to change some patterns in your intimacy, relationships, and other parts of your life
- The difference between the language of sensation and the language of judgment
- Discovering the relationship structure that you want—monogamy and polyamory
- What is the connection between spirituality and sex
More about Monica
Monica Day is many things. Writer, artist, performer. Producer, muse, entrepreneur. Coach and overall instigator of aliveness.
Her innovative individual and group programs cover topics from sensuality to creativity to business to larger social issues of race and oppression (often in the same session). By forging powerful links between the private self to the public self, clients eventually realize an unprecedented feeling of wholeness that is life-changing.
She has created a one-woman show titled Song of the Sacred Whore, a collaborative cabaret entitled The Secret Order of the Libertines: An Intimate Revolution, and made numerous appearances at the Erotic Literary Salon and other spoken word and storytelling venues in NYC and Philadelphia.
She has worked with start-up companies, such as Odwalla and The Republic of Tea, consulted with dozens of businesses and nonprofits, and spent thousands of hours with groups and individuals to build skills in the areas of diversity, communication, and collective decision-making.
She just released her first book, Play Wild, Stay Safe: The Guide to Giving and Receiving.
“If there is one thing I’ve learned, through this diverse and complicated path I’ve chosen, it is this:
Our best self is our whole self. Our unfiltered self. The authentic person we are when we are not trying to fit into tiny boxes and roles and stereotypes.
Ultimately, that’s both what I do, and who I am: an advocate and instigator of embodied, integrated, activated, be your whole fucking self, live your biggest life, always.
I think that’s what changes the world.”
