Dr. Ava's vision in creating this program is vital, especially in a time when people have drifted away from the joys of everyday life, love and pleasure. This course touches upon all aspects of human sexuality, and made it feel easy to master the nuances of romance, intimacy, and personal enrichment. You'll leave the program with the tools and skills to become a highly effective Loveologist.

Dr. Ava leads by example with her academic achievements, willingness to lift others up, and her style and grace.
