We’re growing and bringing you our best yet all summer long

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!

Blended Orgasms, Sex Tech + Femmepreneurs with Lora Haddock

Episode Description I learned about Lora Haddock after attending the CES trade show in Las Vegas this past January. Lora is part of a movement of brilliant, bold and creative women launching business in the Sex Tech and sex toy space with a focus on woman’s pleasure, gender equity and entrepreneurship.

The product itself supports people with Vaginas to have blended orgasms. Nothing obscene about that from my viewpoint!

Self Care = Blissful Intimacy with Laura Aiisha

Episode Description I’ll always remember when I was broken to the core, at the very beginning of a long healing journey to mend a shattered heart and soul, and my twin sis and I got into a massive fight outside of her little home in Haiku, Maui. She said, ‘You have to love yourself, Laura!’ I had no idea what she meant. I couldn’t even place it… there was nothing to compare it to or balance it off of. I had no idea what she was talking about. Self Love. 13 years ago I began the journey. One foot in front of the other. And, although this episode is not about the specifics of what brought me to my knees and thus home to myself, it is about a self care practice that I’ve generated over the last few years that was completely foreign to me and has supported me on a daily basis to get connected to gratitude, my body and the magic within each day.
