Valda Boyd Ford is a woman on a mission. After having woman after woman ask about sexual health issues she realized that something had to be done and she was the one to do it. While talking to women’s group about living a great life filled with love and laughter, invariably someone would express a concern about being involved in a new relationship or complain about the thrill being gone from a long term relationship. So many questions! So little time! So she developed a seminar series that combined the best clinical information, the ability to get everyone involved in the discussion in a safe place, and her inimitable style of telling it like it is with humor and grace. Sex is Not for Sissies was born! It started out as a simple conversation with a woman who was frustrated about getting back into the dating scene and doing a lot of whining about the realities. Finally, Valda told her that sex wasn’t for the casual participant or the cowardly. Sex, she said, was not for sissies!
