Bawdy Love is a revolution,
a loud declaration that every body is worthy and no body is shameful.
THE BAWDY LOVE MANIFESTO:
I am worthy of love, acceptance and respect right now, right here, no exceptions. My voice deserves to be heard, my body deserves to be seen, my soul deserves to be nourished. I do not have to earn decadence, joy, and pleasure. Thriving is my birth-right.
Ways to join the revolution:
I know what it's like to hate your body. I know what it's like to live in a world that's constantly telling you are not good enough, that you and your body are not worthy (and probably never will be) of love, acceptance, and respect, simply because of your size, shape, presentation, color, or ability. And, most importantly, I know what it takes to combat those negative messages and live a thriving, fun, connected, and joyful life.
Bawdy Love: 10 Steps to Profoundly Loving Your Body is a life-changing program in book form set around three simple goals:
- Taking the guilty out of the pleasures in your life (and encouraging you to make decadence a daily occurrence).
- Helping you feel comfortable and confident in your body as you are right now, right here.
- Making you feel connected to a body-positive community all around the world, one that supports you along this path towards radical self-love.
A uniquely beautiful book, Bawdy Love is a journal, workbook and coloring book all in one. The Bawdy Building exercises within it help you delve into the sources of your insecurities, expose your Big Inner Truths (here's a hint: you were born loving yourself and deep down you still do), and create a world for yourself full of positive influences and joyful experiences. Sprinkled with humor and beautiful illustrations from artist Liza Mana Burns, Bawdy Love entertains, inspires, and encourages you to keep expanding, keep growing, and never shrink away again.

What people are saying about Lauren and the Bawdy Love revolution:
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!jessica drake
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.Steph Jagger
If you’ve ever struggled with body shame or let your own feelings about how you look dictate your life choices, then you will find Lauren Marie Fleming's Bawdy Love revelatory. Empathic and unwavering, with her trademark wisdom, wit and winsome personality, Lauren’s philosophy and tools for healing self-hatred shepherds us into a new mental paradigm - one in which we come to recognize our unique beauty, sexiness and desirability instead of denying and hiding it. I've seen Lauren transform lives, by empowering her student to move through the shame and fear they've kept inside for so long, and arrive at a place where they see their bodies the way they really are - beautiful.Elle Chase
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.Aydian Dowling
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
There are few experiences in your life that deeply change you; I can honestly say that Bawdy Love has that affect. I love Lauren’s ability to blend humor and honesty while delivering such a powerful message. This book ins’t just a one time read either, I am so excited to reread it over and over during different phases of my life. I cannot praise this book enough!James Barnes
