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.
Can religion and sexuality coexist in a harmonious and healthy way? Definitely, according to Bob LaVallee, and he thinks the place to start is the fundamental idea that sex is GOOD!
Bob and I talk about keeping the shame and guilt out, and the holy and sacred in sex through lifelong education, acceptance, and changing our perceptions about this previously taboo subject. We also touch on the concept of toxic masculinity and how society’s expectations are keeping us from truly being ourselves. Experience the freedom that comes with finding a sweet balance on podcast Episode 30 of Ignite Intimacy, Religion and Sex with Bob LaVallee!

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.
