David Wichman is an author, speaker, sexual healer, and entrepreneur who is respected and well-known all over the world to those who seek to live free of stigma, shame, and fear around sex, love, and intimacy.
Raised in Fremont, California, David survived a childhood marked by severe neglect and abuse, which led him into years of homelessness, alcoholism, and drug addiction. After decades of struggle and rehabilitation failures, he finally obtained freedom from his addiction in 2005. He remains an active member of New Thought and recovery movements to this day.
In 2006, David found a calling in sex work. While working with seniors, the disabled, and those with severe intimacy issues, he discovered the profound transformational power that sex work creates for both client and provider. In 2009, he founded his travel-companion company, the Male Adventure, through which he has accompanied clients on life-changing adventures to all seven continents. He is an activist, vocal ally, and grateful member of the LGBTQI2 community.
After white-collar crime landed him in jail, Wichman resolved to conquer the sense of brokenness that had been driving him to self-destruction. His spiritual journey has revealed his inherent wholeness and worth, a message of love and belonging he now carries to others.
David takes us on a journey through his darkest hours as well as his triumphs through sexual abuse, parental neglect, foster care, homelessness and hardcore drug and alcohol addiction.
Then when it feels like all hope is lost, David pivots and sails his readers through his tumultuous life and miraculous recovery. His journey then turns another corner where he discovers his unique calling as a sex worker, one that transcends the common shame-based stereotypes portrayed in the media. He finds himself working with marginalized men including the elderly, disabled, and traumatized, men who desperately need compassion, intimacy, and a connection to another human.
Every Grain of Sand is profoundly intimate and adventurous. It is the powerful, spiritual journey and subsequent discovery of David’s true nature that gives readers permission to investigate their own beliefs. It guides us into moving beyond forgiveness and reminds us of our human need for compassion, intimacy and connection.
