About Sheena LaShay
My name is Sheena LaShay.
My blog, brand and boutique business is a lifestyle network and production company focused on expression, freedom and enlightenment. If you are here, it is because:
- We are kindred spirits. (I love Wild Magical Woman and Warrior Wolves)
- Youâ€™re trying to figure some shit out. (Either youâ€™re looking to book my services or find some advice.)
- I probably pissed you off. (You probably clicked the about page while saying, â€śWho the hell does she think she is!?!â€ť)
“Sheena LaShay isâ€¦. bold, intelligent, brash, and sexy with a dirty mouth.” ~ Danny Simmons

I started SheenaLaShay.com in 2004 as a way to cope. I was depressed, suicidal and struggling to survive. I used my blog to write out the truth of my struggles with no filters. (I will NEVER bullshit you. You only get REALNESS with me.)
Now, SheenaLaShay.com has become a place to explore transformation and empowerment through PASSION, SENSUALITY and EROTICISM.
Did I freak you out by writing EROTICISM? Thatâ€™s okay. Sometimes I cause a stir, ruffle a few feathers and then things happen like Shaun King writing about my boobs. Of course, I had to write a rebuttal and informed him they are called breasts.
Point being, this website is for Wild Magical Women and sometimes I use words like EROTIC around here. Â
Are you BOLD and Charismatic? Do you know your power and continually seek ways to amplify it? Are you looking to engage deeper into your inner knowing? Sure there are sensual women who know they are beautiful…..thatâ€™s nice….But are you one of those erotic women who lives fully in her pleasure? If so, you are in the right place and we need to have a salted caramal soy chai tea latte together.
Unafraid to be sexy, unique, or to have her voice be heard, Sheena is a pole activist and more. SheÂ reminds us to be ourselves in a society that tells us to be everyone else.Â ~ AdAstra

You could haveÂ found your way to SheenaLaShay.com because you heard Iâ€™m a portrait & boudoir photographer, keynote speaker or stage manager. Thatâ€™s cool too. In fact using my special mix of creativity, industry expertise, exposure & experience as well as personal awesomeness, I provide amazing services to my clients. I am often hired as a business consultant, brand ambassador, videographer, performer, stage manager, event planner, workshop leader, writer and more!Â
Or rather than hiring me, sometimes people just want some good old advice. Like
1. What to do when your best friend fucks up.
2. How to battle the fits of fear and live on your own terms.
3. How to host your own artist retreat.
The list goes on. Please feel free to use my blog as a FREE resource for life advice, business tips, healing techniques, recipes and more!
It’s not often I meet people that truly stand out from the bunch but Sheena is truly one of those people.Â Â ~ Mark Absher

The point of it all is that I believe in living your life to the fullest, thriving and experiencing new feats of self actualization through discovery, adventure and creativity. I believe in abundance. Every day I want to breathe deeply, be engaged sensually and live authentically. I don’t say these things because I’m just a peachy keen, happy-go-lucky, rainbows & unicorns type of woman. No no no. Spend some time on my site and you’ll know I was raised in a cult, survived 7 years of childhood sexual abuse, lost my mind to grief when one of my best friends died in a car crash. And there was the time I had to help plan the funeral for the 15 year old sister of my other best friend. I have been through some shit, I have hit rock bottom and I drowned my sorrows in whiskey. And then…
Â â€śI got to a point where I realized I could either choose to just end it all or decide to take FULL responsibility for my life. I could keep crying over my fatherâ€™s sins or I could claim my divine right to prosper and thrive. The a-ha moment wasnâ€™t when I started to change. The a-ha moment was realizing I had the power of choice.” Â Read the rest of that article here.
So now you know how things work around here. I write thought provoking things likeÂ Wild Magical Woman,Â 11 Reflections on my Roaring 20’s,Â Bodhcitta,Â 30 Lessons on Love, Life and Loss,Â Surviving vs Thriving,Â My Reasons for Lying,Â Things I’m Afraid to Tell You,Â My Name Is Sheena LaShay, andÂ Not Like The Other.
And I stir up the good kind of controversy by using sensuality, spiritual eroticism, feminine movement and pole dancing to inspire women…and men to reach their highest potential.
If FEMININITY and EROTICISM and INTELLECT were interwoven into one physical manifestation, it would be this woman….she is the librarian of all things fierce.Â Â ~ Jessica Lark
