welcome

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.

96 :: Engineering for Intimacy with Janet Lieberman

Episode Description

Janet Lieberman is a woman after my own heart! After earning a Mechanical Engineering degree from MIT and working with various companies in the consumer product space she began to wonder why the same level of care and design didn’t go into sex toys.

Through the grapevine she heard about Alexandra Fine (Co-Founder of Dame Productions – Episode 93) who was also launching a sex toy company and it was business partner love at first sight. From their first meeting they chose to combine efforts and energy to launch Dame.

Join Mechanical Engineer and Co-Founder of Dame Products, Janet Lieberman and I as we talk about sex toys, product design, female orgasm, dispelling myths about sex toys and pleasure and orgasm shaming on Episode 96 of Ignite Intimacy!

Engineer and a graduate of MIT, Janet designed 3D printers until she discovered that vibrators weren’t being developed, manufactured, or marketed the way a quality consumer good should be. A firm believer that you must be the change you want to see in the world, Lieberman co-founded Dame Products to try to catalyze that shift.

95 :: Nudity, Desire + Possibility with Matthew Ayriss

Episode Description

After spending almost two decades in long-term relationships, Matthew Ayriss is on a journey home to himself.

A year into his marriage he realized something wasn’t quite right. And, the career he excelled in producing music videos for artists like Beyonce and Jay Z was feeding the machine he had intended to hold a mirror to, by bringing more consciousness to it. 

With an affair and then a divorce, Matthew realized it was time to align with his roots and discover who he had become as a grown man.

Join soul adventurer, coach, magician and producer Matthew Ayriss and I for a powerful, honest conversation as we dive deep into mommy love, nipples, nudity, the over sexualization of the human body, desire, romantic partnership and radical communication on Episode 95 of Ignite Intimacy!

Matthew Ayriss – BIO

After a decade in Hollywood producing music videos for artists like Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Katy Perry; and commercials for clients like Apple, Facebook and Toyota, Matthew Ayriss set his intention on creating only consciousness raising content.

As a personal development coach, energy healer and body worker, Matthew works one-on-one with individuals and couples helping people navigate new relationships, sacred sexuality and conscious relating, incorporating energy healing with personal development to uncover and navigate belief systems, traumas and blockages – helping individuals tap into their fullest potential for their higher purpose.

about

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.
