Austin, Texas, 2018

New company forms to solve america's

number one health problem:


          River Roaring, a practicing trial attorney in Austin for decades, has walked away from her legal career to launch a new business and fulfill her passion in life.  She has officially opened Uncage Love: Healthy Love, Sex & Intimacy Coaching to help clients both in Austin and around the world via online video one-on-one coaching.  

          River believes that the number one problem facing humanity is our lack of loving connection and unhealthy sexual traditions.  She believes that resolving the root cause of emotional illness, our deepest relationship pain, will unravel all other problems facing humanity.  Liberation through healthy love, sex & intimacy practices allow her clients to fulfill their highest potential in every area of life.

"I decided to change careers because I don't want others to get stuck in the situation I was in. As an attorney, I was taught to fight, divide and separate. I looked successful on the outside, but after a while I didn't have a reason to get out of bed. Nothing sounded fun anymore ... until I opened up to my authentic sexual expression and learned how to love. After realizing the purpose of life is to love, connect and unite, I could no longer fight. I had to invest my life in love."

Some of River's Favorite Topics:

Let's break old beliefs about sex and intimate relationship, in a professional, relatable way, opening up exciting new possibilities for love.

Explore Body Freedom

Whether you're lonely, anxious about dating, mourning a breakup, or in a relationship and longing for more, body freedom lets you be the lover you were born to be.  Value add:  We will learn the potential of body freedom, and lay the foundation for body freedom by experiencing "body safety" and understanding it's value.

The Power of Touch

Touch is essential to human life. The direct experience of pleasure through our hands, which must be developed through practice, is essential to being a great lover.  Value add:  We will learn how to wake up our hands, and the vast benefits available if we cultivate the direct pleasure pathways that are closed for most of us.

Consent in the #metoo Era

Finally.  A simple system for consent that opens the full flow of desire within clear, safe limits.  Get confident in your touch, pleasure and sexual expression.  Value add:  Consent is different depending on who the act is for.  We will learn to make a clear request, a clear offer, and to give and receive genuine consent. 

Surrogate Partner Therapy

A substitute partner who teaches through the experience of intimate relationship. Invented by Masters & Johnson in 1970, find out where the practice is today.  Value add:  Bust myths about this method, which is more necessary than ever whether you have sexual "dysfunction," are a late-life virgin or just plain lonely.
