  • Lauren is a mind-body sex coach and writer living in Los Angeles.
  • As a former birth doula and midwife's assistant, she has years of experience working intimately with the realities of family life, relationships and sex. While midwifery took her deep into the hidden world of female sexuality, her Doctoral thesis took her into the hidden world of men.
  • Lauren enjoys writing, teaching and helping her clients heal and expand into a greater capacity for happiness, health and pleasure.


Lauren Brim, Ph.D is a doctor of human sexuality who is changing the conversation we have about sex. She's the author of five books, including “The New Rules of Sex” and she is founder and creator of the Adult Play Mat and the make up and apparel brand, Turned On.

Lauren has worked in the healing arts for over a decade and began to specialize in women's sexual health after training to be a midwife and witnessing that health care providers weren't speaking with women about sex. Her work focuses on breaking down barriers to health, relationships and pleasure by expanding our individual and cultural paradigm of sexuality.


Lauren earned her Doctorate in Human Sexuality at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. She did her undergraduate at UCLA, and studied midwifery for one year through the National College of Midwifery.


She is certified as an Advanced BodyTalk Practitioner and Instructor of the BodyTalk System, and she has trained in various hands-on manual therapies, creating her own course last year titled "Bodywork for Babies," which she is now teaching around North America.
