  1. Hello,
    I have been overwhelmed with the stories and realities of sexual abuse that has become so popular these days. It is sickening and the abusers are seriously ill. I would like to know as much as I can to prevent this mess, but I live in New York. Do you ever come up north? Or do you have video of your conferences. I am now working to open a small business in a few months from now. I would like to have had taken the $10 prevention program on this site and learn as much as I can to stop this mess. My business somewhat coincides with your business, but company designs and sources tangible feminine products.
