Leah Carey

Sex and Intimacy Coach and Host of the Podcast Good Girls Talk About Sex

Leah is a Sex and Intimacy Coach and host of the podcast Good Girls Talk About Sex.

She works with people eager to explore new avenues of their sexuality and fulfill their greatest desires, like: identifying and asking for what they really want in bed, diving back into the dating pool after a long time away, having first-time queer experiences, or learning how to communicate about kink.

This work was not an obvious life choice for Leah. Growing up with an abusive father, she learned to be a VERY “good girl.” She got involved in a series of emotionally abusive relationships, always convinced that SHE was the problem – not pretty enough, smart enough, or sexually skilled enough. And because she wasn’t experiencing pleasure during sex, she believed she was broken.

At age 42, life threw Leah an opportunity to build a new story: with both parents gone and no siblings, she put aside the family mythology of the “good girl” and began challenging her old beliefs about worthiness, attractiveness, and desirability. Watching her phenomenal growth, friends started seeking her out to help them do the same, which eventually developed into coaching and podcasting.

You can find Leah online at www.LeahCarey.com and www.GoodGirlsTalk.com.
