A podcast diving deep into the realms of INTIMACY, Romantic Relationships, SEXUALITY, and the plethora of issues, aha’s, TABOOS, Fantasies, and psychological impacts and many layers of these topics including: redefining our relationship to Intimacy; JEALOUSY; Infidelity; the secret sauce to Long-Term Fulfilling Relationships; OPEN Relationships; Polyamory; Physical, Psychic, & Spiritual Attachments; MONOGAMY; Self-Pleasuring; the Freedom that comes with Transparency; Honesty vs. Dishonesty; the long term impact of KEEPING SECRETS; Communication; DESIRE; Chasing vs. Attracting – and more!
We will be featuring special guests, experts, and everyday people who’ve got stories to tell and opinions to share about Love, Romance, Intimacy, and Sexuality. The point is to get this conversation out there in a much bigger way. This is not a typical ‘interview’ style program – it’s an ongoing conversation. My guests and I will go back and forth and roll with the energy and topics as they present themselves.
After 121 episodes and 3 years since launching and producing the Ignite Intimacy Podcast I have chosen to pause the podcast indefinitely. It’s a choice I’ve been avoiding until I realized, it’s ok. Release FOMO, let it go, discover what else wants to fill its place.
This has been quite a journey with thousands of listeners tuning in week after week and tens of thousands of downloads from all over the world!! I jumped for joy to see listeners from Saudi Arabia, Kenya, New Zealand and Brazil!! Wow!! And, to run into people I’ve known through the years who tell me they’ve been tuning in, that they’re getting something from the content we’ve created and shared, that they’re trying new things with their lovers and partners and that their intimacy IS being ignited!
And, to the people who courageously reached out to disclose their Herpes status for the first time to ME. I honor and SALUTE you!! And, I’ve been deeply touched by your courage.
This is all more than I could have bargained for.
It has truly been my honor to share this journey with all of you. I have grown so much. I have evolved and my self love and self care has deepened as well as my vulnerability and ability to allow more intimacy into my life.
What’s so cool about this podcast is that it will live on through the 121 episodes we’ve created, so you can continue tuning in, sharing with your friends and discovering yourself through these episodes.
Aside from everything I shared on this episode one of the most POTENT realizations that I had is that I AM THE ONE! And I am the SOURCE of my life. I have choice, I have power, I have consciousness and a tool kit filled to the brim with everything I need to continue creating a life and legacy that will uplift and empower through time.
Thank you for showing up, tuning in, sharing, caring, reaching out, trying new things, exploring the edges of your vulnerability and eroticism. I SEE YOU! I HONOR YOU! And I am deeply grateful for you!!!
I would have not been able to keep Ignite Intimacy going if it weren’t for the support of my team: Lindsay Leclair, who published every episode, David my editor @davidstudio on Fiverr and Amy Greensky who designed the logo. I am deeply grateful for you all!!
Keep listening and until we meet again, stay blessed and keep shining!! xox
Laura Aiisha – BIO
I have always been fascinated by the world of relational experiences. Wondering what makes two people come together, break apart, stay single, attract many suitors and long term relationships, or none at all, what makes some venture into the world of polyamory, while others were born into a culture and society where polygamy is common and if not a choice, something they learn to live with.
I had been meditating on these topics for quite some time now when in January 2016 an energy larger than me began pulling me forward to explore all of these topics (and more) in an interactive and audio based conversation I could share with the public. Now we’re wrapping up this juicy goodness and moving on to wherever the spirit moves me!

This summer I will be re-sharing the top episodes of the Ignite Intimacy podcast with you, starting with your #1 favorite, Episode 68 :: Frog Farmers, Belly Fat, Emasculation + Misinterpretations with Alison Armstrong.
For many years I blamed men for not showing up the way I want or need them to, for being afraid of me, for saying one thing and doing another. What I didn’t take into consideration was my behavior, my patterns and my choice.
When my twin sister recommended I read Alison Armstrong’s ‘The Queens Code’ it opened up a whole new world for me. I started to become present to the lack of self responsibility I had in my romantic relationships and how I was coming into relationships fully loaded with a lot of baggage from the past.
And now, as I continue on my journey to discovering love, I’m getting crystal clear about how I’m the source of my reality and experience. And, it’s up to me to listen to what the other person is sharing, to pay attention to the timing and my intuition and to love and let go when I know to do so.
Tune in for a replay of this dynamic conversation about love, relationships, dating and life with Alison Armstrong and I!

I have always been fascinated by the world of relational experiences. Wondering what makes two people come together, break apart, stay single, attract many suitors and long term relationships, or none at all, what makes some venture into the world of polyamory, while others were born into a culture and society where polygamy is common and if not a choice, something they learn to live with. I’ve been meditating on these topics for quite some time now when in January 2016 an energy larger than me began pulling me forward to explore all of these topics (and more) in an interactive and audio based conversation I could share with the public. Coming off of my first ever 6 month ‘man-pause’ (not menopause…. a MAN pause) I figured it was the perfect time to launch the Ignite Intimacy podcast!
What I believe to be true based on my experiences and conversations with others is that is that we as a collective society are not having enough transparent conversations about these topics, issues and desires. By bringing this conversation to a larger audience, with the intention to create more transparency and dialogue around these topics, there is a profound evolution that can (and will) occur. I know that our world will be a better place when more of us choose to stop living within the framework of a ‘lie’ and live in alignment with who we truly are at the core. I look forward to seeing a world where more of us choose to live ‘out’ about who we are as relational, intimate and sexual creatures, than ‘in’ where many choose to hide behind the guise of what is acceptable by society’s or our community’s standards. I have a feeling that when we can level the playing field and realize that most likely every human being has been impacted in some way shape or form by some aspect of this conversation, even if by a twinge of jealousy, that our world, and our relationships will benefit tremendously.
