lauren cooney : about me

I am a cultural and personal changemaker. A Co-Founder at GASM- erotic media designed by sex and relationship experts. And a filmmaker, performer, and storyteller. From this website I offer alternative coaching practices, working with people who genuinely want to live the best lives they can. 


I specialise in evoking integrated sexuality, true power, and inspired creativity... as these are the keys to radically transform and beautify your life. 


Modern Feels is devoted to this work. 

 how i got here 

Mainly with a lot of kicking and screaming. I have always straddled wanting to be desperately successful (holding an MA in English Literature from Cambridge University, and a multi-faceted career in the arts)... with the unerring feeling that nothing mattered.

... can you relate? 


For me, the threat of existential terror was present as a child, teenager, and insufferably as a young adult. Whilst my practical parents happily recognised life as dust-to-dust, I learnt the hard way that Western civilisation is experiencing a Meaning Crisis. This sense of crisis way outlived my angsty-rebel-years of bunking school. I covered this up by working 10x as hard as a filmmaker and performer - all while believing that unless I won 10 Oscars in a single year, covering all the major categories, then it probably wasn't worth it.

Rest assured, I was very hard on myself, and very unhappy.

It was only after one of my best friends took her life that I began to take my own mental struggles, and curiosity for transcendence, more seriously. 

For the last decade I have trained with some of the world's leading experts in the fields of conscious sexuality, shamanism, and spirituality. As hard as I tried to return to meetings with film producers, and stay up-to-date with Netflix, my soul had other plans. 

I am honoured to share with you the riches from the teachings and traditions I have had the privilege to explore.  They have made my life incredibly radiant and rich. They can do the same for you.

Explore how I can help you with your pleasure and your power.
