Sexual wellness – a market set to reach $125 billion by 2026

“Sexuality has become the yoga of wellness” and the sexual wellness market is set to reach 125 billion globally by 2026 giving rise to a new category of female wellness products from libido boosting supplements to sex tech (check out the episode we recorded with Ferly – the audio guide to mindful sex). The growth is all down to us finally realising how our sexual health is intrinsically linked with our physical and mental health and as Grace says, who doesn’t want to have better sex?

In this podcast we chat about Grace’s journey to becoming a sex coach, which began with a very painful experience of Vulvodynia (also known as chronic vulva pain) that she suffered for a decade, how she healed herself naturally by taking part in shamanic plant medicine ceremonies and empowered herself, leading her to wanting to help others.

On turning sexual shame into liberation

As a women’s healing and sexuality mentor, Grace helps her clients with a range of issues including; Moving through guilt, shame, grief, and fear surrounding your sex and sexuality. Finding sexual confidence. Activating an empowered body image and resolving traumatic experiences that have impacted your sexual wellbeing.

Her desire to want to build a career in sexual wellness and help others, began with her deep need to talk about something that she kept covered up because of shame.

“Having painful sex or not being able to have sex without pain created this feeling that I was ‘less than’ everyone else – less of a woman” she says. To combat this, “what I did was overexert my sexuality on the outside, my flirtatiousness, sensuality… but I was sitting on top of a big lie”.

On the need to talk about sexual taboos

“Yes we’re all into talking about sexual wellness – and it’s beautiful to talk about pleasure and how to get more connection with our partners – but for me it started by talking about the things we sit on top of that create shame. Things that happen in childhood – for me it was vulvodynia, but so many people hold sexual shame. We don’t talk about sex in this way. The stuff that feels taboo, that you wouldn’t discuss at the dinner table. For me, that’s where it started. We have to talk about the things we feel edgy about in regards to sexuality and being in our bodies”.
