How to describe Dr. Martha Tara Lee… not easy… as she doesn’t fit into any box. She’s a unique and brilliant woman with the courage to practice and live in a culture that denies there is such a thing as sex. Time and again Martha authentically puts herself out in front of people to enrich and expand their lives by sharing her life as an example of raw vulnerability and courage. Her personal spiritual sexual journey is what the book From Princess to Queen is about. By telling her story, she bravely inspires people to reclaim their sexuality; shift their sexual attitudes; and see their life force energy as powerful and vital to happiness.

Wonderfully personal, intimate, easy to read, and informative, From Princess to Queen is the book I wish I could have given my daughter as she was growing up. Great overview and introduction to all the important areas of sex for young and older women, including self esteem and body image, self pleasuring, first time sex, sex and dating, married sex, sex and chronic illness, and much more. I especially appreciated the yin-yang of Dr. Lee’s personal sharing and stories coupled with practical information and actionable suggestions which made this book very engaging and easy to understand. Highly recommended!

About Dr. Martha Tara Lee
Surrounded by friends who were sexually inhibited and struck by dire lack of positive conversations around sex and sexuality in Singapore, Dr. Martha Tara Lee set out to make a positive difference in embarking on her doctorate in human sexuality before launching Eros Coaching in 2009. Today, she remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples who wish to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.
She also holds certificates in counselling, coaching and sex therapy, and has most recently completed her fourth degree – a Masters in Counselling. In practice for more than seven years, she is the only certified sexuality educator by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Singapore.
Often cited in the local media, Dr. Lee is the appointed sex expert for Men’s Health Singapore, and Men’s Health Malaysia. She was recognised as one of ‘Top 50 Inspiring Women Under 40′ by Her World in July 2010, and one of ‘Top 100 Inspiring Women’ by CozyCot in March 2011. She is the host of weekly radio show Eros Evolution on the OMTimes Radio Network. She has published three books: Love, Sex and Everything In-Between, Orgasmic Yoga and From Princess to Queen.
Martha works with individuals and couples in private coaching sessions, and conducts her own workshops. She takes prides in making sure all her workshops are also fun, educational, and sex-positive. This comes easily to her because even though she is extremely dedicated and serious about her work, she fundamentally believes that sex is meant to be fun, wonderful, amazing and sacred. As such, this serious light-heartedness has shone through again and again. For her full profile, click here. Email her here.
