About Pamela Madsen

Pamela Madsen is a sexuality and fertility coach, and author of the best selling memoir, "Shameless, How I Ditched The Diet, Got Naked, Found True Pleasure and Somehow Got Home in Time To Cook Dinner" (Rodale, Jan. 2011). “My goal is to help emancipate women from the ‘woulda’s’ and ‘shoulda’s’ that have kept us in denial and darkness for thousands of years. I know it’s possible for women to heal their sexual identities and embrace their bodies and desires in a safe, sane and consensual way—even within the bounds of marriage,” Pamela is a pioneer in fertility advocacy whose raw honesty, indefatigable will and wit, lifted “infertility” from a whispered curse to a pop culture cause célèbre. With a mix of intelligence, humor and startling bluntness, she leveraged her own struggles with and triumph over reproductive challenges into a national organization that successfully supported the family-building rights of all people. Pamela is at it again—this time in the name of genuine sexual liberation for women. Armed with more than seven years of explicit experience and study, she is lifting the veil from the nature of women’s desire, pleasure and happiness and emerging as a leading voice for erotic human rights. She is rallying women to live the full and integrated lives that are possible only when they embrace their sexuality. And she walks her talk, having worked with sexual healers and surrogates in the sacred intimacy underground. She’s taken countless workshops and become a certified sexologist/somatic sex educator. Just as she did with infertility, Pamela is bringing new focus on sexual behaviors and predilections, speaking and writing from the heart without judgment or hypocrisy. Still a force in the fertility field, her daily blog, www.thefertilityadvocate.com is a breakfast essential for reporters, writers and policymakers who have followed Pamela’s 20-year ascendance.  Pamela not only provides coaching services to people looking to explore their sexuality - but she is also available to individuals and couples trying to build a family. She currently lives in the Riverdale section of New York City with her husband of 29 years, Kai, and their two sons, Tyler, 21, and Spencer, 17.
