57 :: Female Pleasure, Sexual Health + Cannabis with Mathew Gerson + Kiana Reeves

Episode Description

It’s crazy to think how blatantly women’s sexual health and pleasure have been left behind by the science, R&D and pharmaceutical communities considering millions of women around the globe struggle with sexual dysfunctions from orgasmic disorder to sexual arousal disorder.
Not to mention that natural solutions to ease pain and discomfort from menstrual cycles and birthing barely exist.
With the ability to extract THC and CBD from Cannabis, Foria founder Mathew Gerson saw a huge gap in the sexual health market for women and decided to experiment with blending THC oil + coconut oil to give his girlfriend more pleasure during sex.
The results were enough to convince Mathew to launch a line of products to support women’s sexual health, to experience more sexual pleasure, and ease pain and discomfort from their monthly cycles or genital scaring.
Tune in for a juicy conversation about sex, cannabis, pleasure and innovation on Episode 56 of Ignite Intimacy!

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.
