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!

33 :: The Power of Female Orgasm with Lucia and Trevor Paxton

Episode Description Grateful to have Lucia Paxton from episode 27 return with her husband and partner in business, Trevor, discussing their adventure into the world of sensual researchers, conscious sexual community and hour long female orgasms! On this episode you’re going to hear from a male perspective, which is something I’ve been wanting to add more of on the Ignite Intimacy podcast!! After the birth of their daughter, Lucia struggled with feelings of sadness, body shame and inadequacy. When a female friend of hers called her “Juicy” and invited her to a communication group, it started her on a journey of sexual emancipation, which Trevor quickly joined. Jumping into courses on sensuality and sexuality, they learned that instead of trying to “fix” the things they thought were wrong about themselves, they could instead choose to have fun and live their lives through pleasure. Wanting to share the concept of finding yourself perfect, and leave a legacy of perfection to their daughter, Lucia and Trevor founded Luscious L.O.V.E Life, where they teach women and couples about the path to pleasure through sensual gratification, pleasurable communication, and a woman’s orgasm. Lucia and Trevor – BIO Together since 1996 and the parents of a … Continue reading
