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 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!

Entrepreneur and Co-founder of Dame Productions, Alexandra Fine has always been comfortable with her sexuality. As a curiously adventurous girl, she recounts a story about her First grade teachers reaction when she shared about an adventure she went on as a young girl with her Aunt to a drag show in Manhattan.
In this episode Alex tells us about her courage to explore and engage sexually at a young age, her desire to share openly about her experiences and STI status to developing sex toy-esque innovations at home and inviting her girl friends over to test them out for her!

Alexandra Fine – BIO
CEO of Dame Products, Alex Fine translates the nuances of our sexualities into human-friendly toys for sex.
A lifelong student of sexual health, Fine earned her Masters in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in sex therapy from Columbia University. She first began developing her own vibrators at home and asking friends to give her feedback.
In founding Dame Products, Fine intends to start necessary conversations, to listen rather than assume, and to create products that enhance 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.
