Mama G Does TEDxFiDiWomen


Mama Gena here, woman on a mission. I am about to infiltrate your doldrums, increase your circulation, and flood you with beta-endorphin and prolactin. Sound fun?

Every pleasurable experience you have creates a powerful biochemical reaction in your body. It is literally life-enhancing.

Watch this video to see what I mean…

Can you see how infectious pleasure is? What you didn’t see in this footage was that right after the end of my lecture, all the other conference speakers rushed the stage, creating a dance party for the first time ever at a TEDx event!!

It was a dream come true for me to share my work on that stage, as part of the first-ever live streaming TEDxWomen event in history, with over 110 events and 10,000 live participants on every continent. And I am counting on you to join me in moving the Pleasure Revolution forward. To infect everyone on your pathway with your radiance, sass, and over-the-top self-celebration. That is taking care of the planet.

What is one radical act of pleasure you are going to take today, in the name of celebrating yourself for no reason? Any act of pleasure, no matter how great or small, is a radical act. Post it in the comments below to inspire me, and all of your sisters.

Like what you see in this video? Want an even more extended, massive dose of the Pleasure Revolution? Join me for my latest Intro course, The Radical Step That Changes Everything.

This event already happened. Check out The Experience.

With so much love and pleasure,

Mama Gena

    Hi Gena my pleasure is riding my horse, and I make sure I do it almost every day. The barn is my place where time stands still, where love is provided to me unconditionally, and the place I hate to leave. Riding is the activity that gets my nitrous oxide pumping. Thank you for the poetic and chemical description of what I love. Isn’t it also called, “flow?”

  • Rainbow Heart Freedom Eagle December 10, 2011, 1:28 pm

    If woman knew these ways of living a passionate, purposely life, we would have no wars. Just a utopian world run by happy people. Regina, make yourself bigger and better everyday, the world needs you whether they realize it or not. Look forward to working w/ you in the future. Love, Rainbow

  • Charlene December 8, 2011, 8:19 pm

    Love TED and love you, Mama! Every time I hear you speak, I learn something new and take away a wonderful gem to add to my pleasure toolbox. Thank you for the beautiful illustrations in this talk. I’m so proud and so grateful to have been one of those women in your living room and I will be forever grateful. P.S. Can I rub your head?

  • Glamour Puss, SG Fran December 8, 2011, 7:34 pm

    REGENA!!!! You rocked the Ted through and through! I loved your dream of all the beautiful cardinals in a field, just waiting for the key to unhinge their pleasure, soaring unbound! What a beautiful, delicious world you are creating. What a fierce stand you are taking for women to come out of our darkness and take flight into our brilliance! I am so grateful a little birdie told me to go to NYC 😉


  • Alyson Maloy, MD December 8, 2011, 6:26 pm

    What am I thinking? I am thinking, “Oh, how I absolutely LOVE Regena,” “”Thank God I just watched this and was reminded of the importance of pleasure,” and “I am so blessed that Regena has taken on this mission and is transforming the world of -and for- women.”

    Regena, you rocked it, as usual and I am so grateful for you! Your work is revolutionary and powerful and you are just the woman for the job!

    I just may need to book myself for another Inner Circle, Mastery, or both! You help me keep my pleasure in focus and that makes me a happy woman.

    Gorgeous, brilliant , visionary, compassionate, generous Regena, or, my new name for you, Mama/Martin..Luther..Queen/King, invoking the freedom of freedom, you BROUGHT it woman! Fearless! I was moved to tears every second. In celebration of myself, the incredible community you have sourced, and in honor of every woman on this planet, I will brag:

    Virtual Pleasure Bootcamp and The Sister Goddess Miami 2011 Reunion completely changed my life. When I was 15, my mother who was a raging alcoholic threw me out of the house, as in onto the street, with $65 to my name. After 2 months I was “interviewed” by my mother to see if I was willing to sufficiently deaden and hide everything most fearless and vibrant about myself in exchange for a roof versus the streets or a shelter.Holding the psychic surgical knife in my hand, I made the cut.I was given a physical place to live, and a thorn in my soul that has plagued me every day since- a constant dis-ease with people, an ever-present terror that if I displeased them, I would be “thrown out”, exiled and forever alone. This thorn pierced every single moment of my life no matter what I did to make it go away.Until Miami. I thought I was skinny-dipping. I thought I was making friends with women on a level I never have before, sharing chocolate mousse by the pool, bragging on the beach, laughing and dancing, but something WAY more profound was taking place, something sourced from the depths of your intention and love. I returned home from Miami and went out to do my usual round of errands but I noticed I felt completely transformed, that something…was..gone. The thorn is gone from my soul. I am confident and full of faith as never before. This means I am happy and determined as never before, for my own dreams, and for every single woman on this planet, for now though their thorn may have a different story behind it, I can see it and I am here with you to have it go away, and for us to light the very heavens on fire in a blaze of red-“cardinalship” the likes of which this universe has never seen. I love you and I will see you in Mastery!!! HUGE hugs and a multitude of blessings upon you and your divine intention and works. LOVE, Sister Goddess Sensuous Songbird Elizabeth-UNLEASHED!

  • Amy December 8, 2011, 4:00 pm

    I bow to your greatness, Regena. You have flown further than ever, Red Cardinal, Mama!

  • Mercedes December 8, 2011, 4:34 pm

    I love youu!! Yes, pleasure, that word, it is so misunderstood. I know exactly what you are talking about! Wow….Yes, Im taking pleasure breaks, Im increasing my nitrous oxide. I love what you had to share, your energy and I am sooooo part of this revolution NOW. Thank youuuuuuu!!!!!!

  • Suzanne Tessier December 8, 2011, 3:22 pm

    i LOVE your message! I’ve lost that joyful and alive juiciness… and i’ve been pretty sad. I’m going to be sassy today, and have great fun!!!

  • jessamina Longislandgoddess December 8, 2011, 3:14 pm

    Woooooooooo! Yes!
    Congrats on your Ted Talk!
    Keep Rockin, Mama Gena!

  • Goddess December 8, 2011, 3:11 pm

    Woohoo – Mama Gena Regenius – that was OMazing – I was dancing I was crying I was laughing I was dancing woohoo – I loved how you took your notes out from your breasts ha ha ha and how you let go of your notes and you became an unbound cardinal – a Pleasure Queen – and are leading the pleasure movement in HERstory.

    The “sound of a woman who loves herself” – the wisdom of babes.

    Thank you for being my role model, my teacher, my Sister on what a woman can be.

    I love you SG Regena.

  • Empress Shakaya December 8, 2011, 3:05 pm

    You are an icon Regena, a pleasure Goddess!

    Pleasure is a juicy blissapline, an exquisite spritual vehicle, the truest, purest, most beautiful and powerful expression of our essence…Our gorgeous curves, the turn of our smile, the glint in our eye, the swell of our heart- women are born to embody pleasure and when we do, our children, men and our sisters are inspired and nourished!

    Viva the Pleasure Revolution!

  • Mary Campbell Case December 8, 2011, 2:44 pm

    I’m flying!!! I’ve had the incredibly delightful pleasure of loving my life and sweet self so completely today that I’ve been flirting irrepressably with every person I meet on every errand all day… And the joy is totally contagious! Shy smiles everywhere. Uprides every other sentence. The man at the car repair shop just gave me a private office for my sister goddess phone calls. And it’s only lunch time!!!

  • veronica December 8, 2011, 2:41 pm

    so willing to learn from you, i want to manifest this!

  • Mary Virginia McNeill December 8, 2011, 2:34 pm

    I Love you Mama Gena! You move me to tears, & this moved me to tears! I’m so excited to see you & other SIster Goddesses tonight at Fred Segal in Santa Monica!
    Much Love & Gratitude,

    After heating up the hot tub in my secluded desert backyard, I’m going to float around naked just watching the hummingbirds dart among the desert flowers and listening to the ruffling of the palm trees and drink in all the majestic silence of the giant cacti. Oh crap, it’s Thursday, gardener day….nope. Not gonna do that.

    Idea #4352: I’m going to break out my favorite water colors and a huge sheet of paper and begin to drizzle brilliant colors on the page and then im going to love every single idea drawing on that sheet brings to me as I reawaken the dormant artist in my I put aside for 35 years to raise my kids alone.

    Oh, darling Mama Gena, every bit of DAILY FLUFF that arrives in my inbox reminds me that there is at least ONE other woman on the planet that cherishes the wonderful wild happy woman they truly are inside and wants her to sing with joy!

  • Suzie December 8, 2011, 2:20 pm

    the hairs on the back of my neck are standing up on end… omg, I want to be one of those women that fly… can you do that Mama?
