Pam Costa: Reclaiming Female Sexual Desire

140 proudly presents Pam Costa, from TEDx talk from PaloAlto, CA, USA! She drops The 411 on how women have to overcome a sometimes sex-negative society, to achieve anything comparable to the male explosion that is associated with a man’s “geyser-like” orgasm. She gives some funny background stories full of wit and good experiences, that other women and/or couples are sure to relate to.

After a decade-and-a-half at Apple and Facebook, Pam left her career in high tech to found Down To There to share her real-life stories of challenges and successes around sexuality in her marriage.

Through her writing, speaking and coaching, she hopes to inspire individuals and couples to find ways to renew and deepen desire and intimacy in their own relationships.

Pam is also passionate about raising awareness within the medical and mental health communities about the positive impact of peer support on female sexual health, recently presenting her research on this topic at the 2018 International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health conference.
