Pamela’s trademark openness and humor blew the lid off one of the worst kept secrets in this country: the power of the erotic core buried inside every woman to transform her life. With Shameless: How I Ditched The Diet, Got Naked, Found True Pleasure and Still Got Home In Time To Cook Dinner (Rodale, January 2011), she wrote a frank, touching and bestselling memoir that has become a rallying cry for thousands of women who find that they’ve spent lifetimes sublimating their sexuality, often with dire consequences to their physical, emotional and relationship well-being.
Taking the hard-won lessons of her own self-discovery on the road, Pamela meets with women across the country — every day mothers, daughters, wives and girlfriends — inspiring them to find their own paths to becoming women in full. She talks from the heart about connecting to one’s true erotic identity and using that life force to relax in their own skin, strengthen their relationships, and seize opportunities they once thought out of reach. Pamela is their soul sister, the slightly chubby woman next door who’s found the secret sauce. And as Sassy and Jane magazines founder Jane Pratt recently said of Pamela, “I want what she’s having.”
A veteran speaker and educator, Pamela is a renowned blogger, who writes for Psychology Today, The Fertility Advocate and episodically, the The Huffington Post. She’s advising members of her gated online community, found at beingshameless.com, how to access the transformative power of pleasure. She brings it home on the speaker circuit, in face-to-face workshops, one-on-one coaching sessions, women’s circles and in book clubs.
During a recent six-week cross-country tour, Pamela spoke to thousands of people at venues as varied as big independent bookstores and specialized conferences such as The Curvy Revolution. She appeared alongside thought leaders, Marianne Williamson and Maya Angelou among them, at the virtual Women’s International Summit For Health.
After her years as the Founder and first Executive Director of The American Fertility Association, Pamela has become a trusted media resource. She’s recently appeared on CNN, AARP Primetime Radio, The Dr. Laura Berman Show, FLOURISH (Dr. Christiane Northrop’s radio show), The Jane Pratt Show and Playboy Radio to name a few. She’s been featured in Newsweek, Vogue, 60 Minutes and Oprah.
Pamela lives in Riverdale, NY with her extraordinarily patient and supportive husband of 30 years and two young adult sons, who learned well from their father.
SHAMELESS is her first book published by Rodale Books in January 2011.
