Praise for “Woman on Fire: 9 Elements to Wake Up Your Erotic Energy, Personal Power, and Sexual Intelligence”:

“Woman on Fire is a compassionate, loving, and tender guide that will assist all women in owning and operating the life force that is our erotic energy and sexual intelligence.”
-Christiane Northrup, MD, author Goddesses Never Age

“Amy Jo is an experienced sexuality coach who has lived with women through the rocky and rewarding terrain of exploring their sexual trauma and suppression and reclaiming their true sexual power and pleasure. As someone who has also been privileged to travel this terrain with women, I love Amy Jo’s easy way with ALL of who we are as women—never losing sight of how much our own sexual liberation will lead to our joy and success in life. Her program is deep and profound and I believe that many women will benefit from her knowledge and expertise. The world will certainly benefit from more Women on Fire.”

-Rachel Carlton Abrams, MD, author of The Multi-Orgasmic Woman

“I know this book was written with women in mind, but the fact is it would work super well for anyone who identifies or expresses themselves along the more female/feminine tendrils of the gender continuum. Woman On Fire is simply a smart, fierce, step-by-step guide by which we can finally name and actualize a meaningful and satisfying sexuality for ourselves, far beyond the limits of hetero-or-homo. That’s a big wow.”

-Kate Bornstein, author of A Queer and Pleasant Danger & Gender Outlaw

“All women deserve to read this book! Amy Jo writes an intelligent and inspiring manual, steeped in practical wisdom, to catalyze the rise of feminine power. With 20 years of leading her field, she is a luminary of sexual empowerment. Woman on Fire is a bold, lucid, and necessary work of courage. We all rejoice! Bravo!”

– Eva Clay, MSW, LCSW, Psychotherapist and Professor of Neuroscience

“Amy Jo Goddard knows that the lack of understanding, fear, shame and guilt around sex keep people from enjoying one of our greatest gifts and forms of expression. She leads you into the joy and power of your sexuality with her ground breaking Woman on Fire. This is must read for all people.”

-David Neagle, author of The Millions Within

“Amy Jo Goddard understands that creating a passionate, empowered sex life takes more than trying a new trick or wearing lingerie; she guides women to tune into their deep desires, ignite their sensuality and maximize pleasure. Woman on Fire provides amazing insight into the challenges people face and how to transform them for a more fulfilled life. If you are ready for discovery and to step into sexual empowerment, this book will definitely help you make it happen.”

-Charlie Glickman, author of The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure

“My long-term friend and colleague Amy Jo Goddard, offers powerful guidelines to expand women’s sex lives so we can become decisive orgasmic women who are able to state our pleasure and get what we want—from the bedroom to the boardroom.”

-Betty Dodson, sexual pioneer and author of Sex for One

“Amy Jo is a warm and wise guide you can trust to support you on your journey to authentic erotic empowerment. Her work is brilliant, offering an intimate and inspiring path to not just more pleasure but to true sexual integration.”
