Meet Sasha

lets get quirky

Hello! I’m Sasha Cagen. I am the author of Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics and I founded the quirkyalone movement.

I’ve been writing, talking, thinking, and teaching about being quirkyalone, quirkytogether, a quirkyslut, and more since all the way back in the late 90s. Amazingly the adventure continues as this movement gathers steam and is always taking on new manifestations. I never could have predicted that fusing these two words together would be so powerful, or that so many different kinds of people from all over the world would identify so strongly with “quirkyalone” and become part of this movement.

Quirkyalone stands for confidence, true love, self-love, authenticity, and connection. It’s not so much about being alone as it is about being true to yourself. Those are my values too, as I craft a life that feels authentic to me, and I help others do the same in my coaching, online classes, and travel adventures.

My work a writer, life coach, and community-builder has been featured in the New York Times, CNN, NPR, USA Today, MSNBC, London Guardian and more.

When I’m not writing or coaching, you can find me dancing tango, either in Buenos Aires or in the Bay Area. Or watching a marathon of Downton Abbey or House of Cards. I love to travel and spent more than a year traveling alone in South America. Those travels will be told in my new book, a memoir.

Rhode Island is my home state. And Rhode Island is pretty quirky. So that might explain it. . .

My next book — WET — yes, you heard the title right, is the story of how my journey of sensuality through South America and North America changed my life. It’s about how connecting to ourselves through our sensuality can give us all sorts of power and intimacy, in and outside the bedroom. WET is percolating in my computer and I can’t wait to share it with you.

The best way to stay in touch with all my quirky and now WET projects and inspiration is to sign up for my mailing list. Join the quirky family and join the conversation!

Chatting with Anderson Cooper when Quirkyalone came out. . .

During my solo travels though South America in 2010 and 11, I discovered tango in Cali, Colombia (the world capital of salsa). I was so high on life and tango that I decided I wanted to give a tango show with my teacher Oscar. I did NOT know tango yet (I had only been dancing tango six weeks!) and yet this was a high point of my life. Talk about stepping outside the comfort zone! This scene will be in my upcoming book Wet but you can see the performance now.

As a coach, guide, and mentor, I work one-on-one with quirkyalone women and some men to help them drop their single shame and open up for the love and connection they really want. Through my “wet” coaching I also help women fully embrace their sensuality and sexuality free of shame–for a better sex life and a more turned-on life in general. Interested? Send me a message telling me about you and your situation and we’ll have a conversation.

Some of my coaching clients come to Buenos Aires with me, where I teach you how to use tango as a metaphor for your life, confidence, and sensuality. Want to dance? Check out the Quirky Heart Tango Adventure in Buenos Aires!
