Hi! My name is Vanessa Bonham; I’m your Pure Romance consultant. What that means is I’m really good at making women feel comfortable with talking about their bodies, relationships, intimacy and opening up about any concerns. There is such a lack of research and education for women, so I’m here to help you!
What is Pure Romance you ask? It is an in-home party plan where we teach women how to connect with themselves and in their relationships. We do this at your home, just you and your girlfriends. Pure Romance’s mission is to Educate, Entertain and Empower women in a safe environment.
I’ve been in the industry for over 6 years and over this time I’ve noticed I’ve become quite the feminist! Before Pure Romance, I was that same girl who shuddered at the word “Feminist.” I also knew nothing about my body, didn’t know what an orgasm was like, I thought women who masturbated were the promiscuous/scandalous kind and thought they probably had some kind of sexual traumatic childhood. It was because of Pure Romance I have had extensive training; met so many women, been exposed to whole new perspectives and continue to get innovative and up-to-date training in sexuality! I learned that those things I thought before, couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Women have the right to own their bodies, to explore their bodies, to get to know who they are and what they enjoy. I love the quote, “How can you love someone else if you don’t know how to love yourself first?” Women have the right to feel beautiful about themselves no matter how they compare to our society’s “ideal”. Women have the right to own their sexuality, to not be mocked for defying the double standard. There are so many topics surrounding the treatment of women, I could go on for days, hence the blog! 😉
So here I am now, I’ve become so much more than just a Pure Romance consultant. I’m on a mission to empower women, be an advocate for women’s sexual health! I’ve become a feminist! 😉
