Audacity is

the difference between joy and jealousy, passion and apathy, creating and destroying.

what it takes to stop standing outside someone else’s dream and

You were born without fear or shame.

Then somewhere, somebody stole your audacity away.

It’s time to take it back.

My Bawdy Building programs are a way to practice your audacity.

Yes, practice as in actively and consciously working on building your ability to be a daring. To be brazen. To be an uppity love rebel who fights for your right to pleasure, connection, healing, and fun in this one precious life you have.

The program is designed to give you a safe space to stand up for your joy, delve into what makes you and your body great, and live a life of guilt-free delight, pleasure, and fun.

Spend time with, listen to, or read the words of Lauren Marie Fleming and she'll do one thing - serve you the permission you've been looking for on a decadent golden platter. Her work allows all of us to be unapologetically ourselves, no matter what size, shape, color or flavor we come in. The world needs more Lauren Marie Fleming.

It takes practice to let go of shame and embrace your intrinsic worth. There is no finish line you cross one day and *poof* like magic you never doubt yourself again.

Think instead of learning to love yourself as a journey, with me as your guide, and Bawdy Building as a training program, offering you insight, inspiration, and support along the way.

I filled my book Bawdy Love: 10 Steps to Profoundly Loving Your Body with Bawdy Building exercises, but when the book was finished, I knew the journey wasn’t done, I knew I had more to share with you about this path towards radical self-love. My Bawdy Building programs allow me to engage you in a multimedia learning environment where we can delve into topics beyond those in my book, and interact on a more intimate, personal level.

My Bawdy Building programs allow me to help you directly where you want and need it the most. 

My team and I listen to you – on social media, in email replies to our newsletter, at retreats – and each session’s theme is taken directly from your expressed needs, desires, and dreams.

For our winter session of Bawdy Building, we’re all about cuddling up, hot tea, fireplaces, hibernating, resting, rejuvenating and letting go of obligation. It’s about sleeping in a little longer and smiling a lot more. It’s about seeing and appreciating the darkness, around you and within you. It’s about breathing in the rare sunny days, and breathing through the cold, harsher nights. It’s about taking the break your body needs now, so it can be ready to bloom in the Spring.

Week 1: Coldheartedness. From creaky knees to coldhearted bosses, I help you examine what parts of your body, soul, and life could use some extra warm love.

Week 2: Hibernation. Stop worrying about winter weight gain and start embracing the rest and relaxation your body needs this time of year.

Week 3: Darkness. Are you hiding the darker, less flattering parts of yourself? How is that affecting your ability to feel fully worthy of love and acceptance?

Week 4: Light. Finding the fires that already reside within you and learning how to stoke them.

Every once in a while you have a conversation where you can feel yourself becoming a stronger and healthier version of who you are. That was exactly what happened during my coaching interview with Lauren. She gave me the tools I needed to better handle uncomfortable situations as well as created a feeling of security in myself.

Each Bawdy Building session comes with four videos, four meditations, and four worksheets, all designed to engage your body, mind, and soul in various styles of learning for the greatest positive impact. You can work through the program on your own, or you can sign-up for extra support from me and my team to help you overcome any obstacles you encounter on your self-love journey.

Looking for a more personalized experience?

Limited to 4 people a session, the course + coaching option gives you individualized support throughout the course.

When you sign-up for the course + coaching option you get:

  • One 45-minute afternoon tea session with me.* Pour a cup of tea, grab some chocolate, and together we’ll bring more pleasure, joy, decadence, and fun to your life, all while boosting your comfort and confidence in yourself. All sessions are over the phone and recorded so you can play them back anytime you need a boost.
  • 25% off additional coaching sessions.*
  • Weekly personal email check-ins to help you get the most out of the course.
  • Membership in the Bawdy Love Brigade, giving you access to special deals, content, and support available only to my coaching client and retreat participants.

Should you add on coaching?

Adding coaching is great if you:

  • Want a more personalized experience. Individual coaching sessions allow me to address your specific needs, wants, and desires.
  • Need a little more TLC (tender loving care). Our afternoon tea together is a safe space for you to be seen, heard, and supported as you are right now, right here.
  • Have trouble following through with things. Coaching holds you accountable for doing the work and making the changes you want to make in your life.
  • Want to see faster results. The personalization, follow-through, and support that comes from coaching helps my clients make positive changes in their lives quickly and with ease.

The course by itself is good if you:

  • Want to take longer than a month to go through the course. Everyone gets the course delivered via email throughout the four-weeks. Coaching helps hold you accountable for doing the work each week, and requires that you have your coaching session within six weeks of starting the course. If you plan on going through the course material later, the coaching option may not be for you.
  • You prefer to go at it alone. If you’re a self-starter who much prefers to work without others around, the course-only option may be best for you. Either way, you always have access to the Bawdy Love Facebook group for support if you need it.

*The course + coaching option is designed to help you stay on track with the coursework, get the most out of the program, and make the biggest positive impact on your life as possible. For that reason, your coaching session must be used during the Bawdy Building program. Any additional sessions must be purchased before the end of your Bawdy Building session to receive the discount, and used within two months of the program’s end.

Do you offer group discounts?
Revolutionizing your life is so much more fun with comrades-in-arms to share your victories and support you when you’re down. I offer significant discounts for groups of 3 or more that go through a Bawdy Building program together. Email for more information.

Do you have scholarship options?
I am dedicated to helping people take the guilty out of pleasure and feel more comfortable and confident in their body, no matter what their financial situation. For that reason, it is my company’s policy to offer 10% of our products, programs, and services at reduced rates for those who wouldn’t otherwise afford it.

If you are interested in a Bawdy Building Program scholarship, please email

Do you offer refunds?
Because you gain access to course material immediately, we cannot offer refunds. If you are unhappy with the program, please email and we will happily work with you to remedy the situation.

Which option should I choose: basic or course + coaching?
The basic course is set up as a self-guided coaching program, allowing you to work at your own pace on your own time. This is a great option if you are a self-starter or on a budget.

If you are seeking a more individualized and personalized experience, I suggest the course + coaching option. Limited to 4 people a session, Afternoon Tea with Lauren allows you to delve deeper into a specific issues, topic, or problem area within the course material. For more about my coaching style, check out my services page. This and my retreats are currently the only way I am taking new coaching clients.

Both options come with the same course material, videos, meditations, and worksheets.


How long do I have to finish the course material?
One of the reasons we chose an email based course over a classroom program is so you can access the material on your own time and as often as you’d like. I do require, however, that all afternoon tea coaching calls with me occur during the Bawdy Building session for which they were purchased. This helps keep the material fresh in your mind and relevant.

How is the course content sent to me?
All of the videos, meditations, and worksheets will be delivered to you via email by a program called MailChimp. Feedback from my past online programs showed that people preferred email to online classrooms, so we listened to your preferences and changed. You can, however, use the Bawdy Love Facebook group as a virtual classroom of sorts, meeting other Bawdy Lovelies around the world and posting your questions to the group.

Because the course is delivered through email, it’s important to add to your address book to avoid material being sent to your spam/junk folder, and drag the emails from your “promotions” tab to your “primary” tab if you use Gmail.


My afternoon teas with Lauren are the best part of my week.  I always leave our sessions with my needs met AND my cup full of warmth, laughter, and genuine delight. She reminds me that there is so much to love and appreciate, even in those moments when I’m struggling.  Afternoon teas are my sanctuary.

Like having a friend hold your hand, Bawdy Love will be your companion, guide, and comfort as you do the hard, funny, scary, exhilarating, and powerful work of changing how you view your body, your universe, and your life. It’s good to have a friend, and Lauren, through this book, is an especially good friend to have.

Dr. Martina Shabram, PhD

Lauren is one of the most beautifully sincere people I have ever had the gift of meeting. Her experience runs deep, her perseverance is inspiring. Whether dancing in the sunshine or weathering the storm of life, she is a friend and a mentor - her words are music to my soul. 

She ignites a tiny spark inside me to fan the flames into the seldom reached corners of my mind rife with insecurity and doubt, making my uncertainties vanish as my self confidence reemerges and I begin to realize my individual potential and accept myself as I am. I am grateful to her!

If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and found yourself immediately criticizing what you saw (and who hasn’t?), Bawdy Love will give you the tools and confidence to return that critical gaze with a kinder, healthier one that’s sure to improve your life in innumerable ways.

Rachel Kramer Bussel

Editor, Curvy Girls: Erotica for Women

Having tea with Lauren is like having a date with someone who is already totally into you. Which in a way, Lauren is. Lauren wants you, me and everyone to succeed, to be the people we want to be, to love ourselves without reserve- right now, right here, no exceptions.

When we met there was not a moment of awkwardness- our conversation was open, free and incredibly beneficial. She found the exact words I needed to hear, encouraging me to go out and take my life by the reins, to see the signs life was sending me, to be joyful and passionate in my own body. Lauren's sunny disposition, her questions and her genuine interest make any conversation with her incredibly invigorating and empowering, and having a hot mug of tea to go along with that makes the experience incomparable.

Coaching with Lauren gives me the same feeling I get after spending a weekend with my best friend, building one another up with unconditional love. In just half an hour, I can go from feeling worthless to feeling like I can take on the world. She provides me with such a unique perspective on body image, weight, and mental health in such a genuine, caring way.

Lauren provides me with the tools to love my flawed body and to thrive within it. She inspires me to be better to myself at a time in my life when I rarely feel like I deserve it. Lauren is blazing the path towards radical self love and I’m behind her 100%!

Coaching client and Bawdy Love retreat participant

Lauren's work encourages the world to love their bodies regardless of gender, body type or size in a society that encourages us to shame our bodies on so many levels. Lauren's work positively contributes to the much needed shift in how we all feel inside of our bodies reminding us that we are all worthy of loving the reflection we see in the mirror, without exception.
