Dr. Trina Read
Sexologist and relationship expert, Dr. Trina E. Read, has earned her reputation for being an entertaining, funny, easy to understand, and intelligent professional speaker. Trina’s style is like having a conversation with your best girl-friend as she has a way of putting her audience at total ease with the topic of sex.
Trina’s sole purpose is to educate and has a big life mission: To show women how to have fun and meaningful sex—even when the minutia of everyday life gets a little crazy. She believes with knowledge brings empowered and intentional choices that create a richer and more fulfilled sex life.
Trina is an international speaker and has had the privilege of connecting with hundreds of thousands of people across North America, Britain, Scotland, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
How can she be so effective? Dr. Trina explains, “People naturally assume because I am a Sex Expert I am always having swinging-off-the-chandeliers-kind-of-sex. They are surprised when they meet me to realize I am a pretty typical gal. Ironically, being married with two kids helps give me a unique perspective on the average couple's sex life.”
Her common sense, humorous and I’m-just-an-average-gal-too style puts her audience at total ease with their sexuality. Over and over again feedback has been, “She gets it. She gets my sex life. It was like I was having an intimate conversation with my closest girlfriend.”
Dr. Trina's genius is getting her audience to relax and open up about sex. I invited Dr. Trina to speak to my Calgary Camp Hoo-Ha group and it was so popular, we offered a second night which sold out in a matter of hours. The feedback from the group she is informative, funny, smart and relateable. We've since invited her to speak at other Camp Hoo-Ha events in different cities.

Mensans love challenges and love any chance to add to their knowledge base. Trina stretched the group’s sex knowledge in a fun, friendly and enjoyable way. Trina’s honesty and self-deprecating tales of awkward audiences endeared her to the Mensa crowd. She was flooded with questions at the end of her session and I heard that frank conversations about sex continued all afternoon in the Hospitality Suite of the hotel.

I’m incredibly impressed Dr. Trina took such a racy subject and made every single woman feel comfortable talking about it. Everyone I talked to thoroughly enjoyed and learned a lot from Dr. Trina’s presentation. She definitely helped make this a fabulous weekend for us. Thanks for such an inspiring speech!

Dr. Trina was the perfect speaker to launch our It’s a Mom’s Life, Southcentre Mall speaker series. The ladies LOVED her funny, educational and dynamic presentation. We can highly recommend her as a great speaker for any other women’s groups.

Dr. Trina caught everyone’s attention the moment she began to speak. Her confidence and boldness in knowing her subject and audience is balanced by her humor and warm personality. Momcafé Moms are looking forward to having Trina speak again.

Thank you for being such a memorable part of our conference. Your presentation, “The Other Bedside: Helping Nurses to Have Fresh and Meaningful Sex” was engaging, provocative, funny and bold. While you provided us much “food for thought”, your lesson on enhancing sensory awareness was enthusiastically embraced by the crowd. Our conference breakfast the following morning was the scene for practicing this strategy, and by the sounds coming from the room, it was a very ‘pleasurable’.

Our Mona Lisa brunch Dr. Trina spoke at was a great success and the topic of conversation all week long. Dr. Trina was a treat to have and definitely well received. I am sure the ladies will be looking for her, hoping to catch some of her more candid speaking engagements.

Enerplus understands the importance of work and home life balance and its affect on employee morale. We invited Dr. Trina Read to talk about what stress can do to our closest relationships. Everyone found her seminar both valuable and useful, with concrete ideas we could use immediately with our personal and professional relationships.
Your presentation was informative, motivating, inspirational and laced with humour. Your ability to think on your feet and fully answer questions was superb. You are without doubt one of the top speakers we have had this year and we very much appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to address us. I cannot recommend you highly enough to any other group who would be fortunate enough to have you present to them on a subject you obviously know very well. Our members will be taking your advice and comments to heart over the summer to finish their writing projects.

We have had Dr. Trina back by popular demand over the past five years. She has been speaking at The Pajama Party events in Jasper, Lake Louise and Toronto and her talks are perfect for our group as they are clean, funny and full of great information. Reviews from our Pajama Party gals are always extremely favorable. We definitely want Dr. Trina back to hear what she has to say.

Dr. Trina has done several talks for our group and is consistently the most requested to come back and speak again. She makes moms feel at ease with themselves and with their sexuality. She has a wonderful way of empowering, encouraging and celebrating women. Her warmth, honesty and fantastic humour bring a sense of connection and bonding for all in attendance.

For the past three years, Dr. Trina has presented her “Are You Having Married Woman Sex?” program for Women's Health Resources. We have rarely sold out so quickly in our twenty-three year history of giving workshops. In fact, we had to add multiple dates to accommodate the number of women who wanted to attend. Best of all, the feedback forms always come back with excellent reviews.

In today's increasingly busy society it is easy to allow work deadlines and family pressures to over take every aspect of your life. Dr. Trina Read's discussion on the effects of stress on intimacy served as a great reality check for our group. Not only did it remind us that intimacy comes in many forms, not just sex, but it also served to reinforce in a mature and respectful manner the importance maintaining a healthy love life with your partner. Our company is committed to ensuring that our employees practice total health, which includes mind, body and spirit and intimacy forms an integral part of that total health package. We would absolutely recommend this program to any other company seeking to encourage healthy lifestyles in their employees.

Dr. Trina’s talk for our Mompreneur group was a big hit. We’ve always enjoyed her articles in our magazine and were delighted to see she is just as sharp and witty and in her presentation as she is in her writing.

A Little More Interesting has put on both seminars as well as monthly T-Spots. Dr. Trina’s knowledge on sexuality is extensive. Yet her most amazing attributes are humor and a brilliant personality which completely engages her audience. She is approachable, real and puts people at their ease—helping them to feel sexually normal.

Our Synergy networking group will never be the same after Dr. Trina’s Valentine’s theme presentation. Her sharp wit won over our mostly male membership and we ended up understanding the importance of how a good sex life / relationship at home helps work performance; and the real difference between romance and sex.
