Do you wish you could have more open and honest conversations about sex and intimacy with your partner, friends, family members and community?

Have you ever wondered where you can find a space to have your questions about intimate topics discussed in a safe, open group setting?

After realizing that he wasn't the only one with questions about intimacy, Jared Matthew Weiss began hosting monthly town hall style gatherings where topics on sex, intimacy (and other juicy things that folks might feel uncomfortable talking about) are addressed through anonymous questions and honest and open group discussion. What started as a fun way to open up the lines of communication became an immediate success, with Jared naming his event Touchpoint and holding gatherings filled with people from many different cultures all over the world. Touchpoint subjects range from sex positions, BDSM, losing your virginity and more.

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.

About Lucia and Trevor:

Together since 1996 and the parents of a 16 year old daughter, Lucia and Trevor live in and run their business out of California.

Lucia, a former Spanish teacher, is an educator, entrepreneur, mother, and artist. She is a researcher of sensuality , communication, intentional living, and Deliberate Orgasm ( female orgasm).

Trevor, a former Silicon Valley techie and general contracter, has dedicated his life to service of the Goddess, and is a dedicated researcher and instructor of female orgasm, having trained in DOing (Deliberate orgasm) and advanced communication practices.

Accepting the fluidity of sexuality from an early age, but pushing it aside to focus on her education, Andrea’s path has now brought her to create O.School and look into the future of sex and sex education.

O.School is a judgement free online space to choose your own sex education adventure, with a diverse group of instructors leading courses ranging from communication and consent, to raising sex positive kids, to introduction to kink and fetish.

Sweet and pungent,
she deliberates,
parting the exquisite flesh
as juices moisten her fingers.

(from ‘Mango’)

In this episode of Ignite Intimacy, Deleonora Abel shares with us her gorgeous and erotic poetry. Not only are her words tantalizing, so is her voice and the way the words come forth from her being.

She is a force, both powerful and soft, divine and adventurous.

Enjoy a new twist for this episode of Ignite Intimacy, Sensual Poetry with Deleonora Abel!

Sychronized, their
auras collide and
two become
one.

(from ‘La Petite Mort’)

 

About Deleonora:

An inspired and imaginative soul, raised being told that creativity should only be a hobby, Australian poet, novelist, and screenwriter Deleonora Abel has only now fully embraced her talent for writing.

Using poetry and writing as a sanctuary during her experiences putting herself through college as a single mother, and taking care of her cancer-stricken mother for the last months of her life, she paints a picture in your mind of every woman’s journey from girlhood to motherhood.

Using a style known as écriture féminine in her work, whose purpose is to return women to writing and express repressed sexual pleasure, Deleonora’s writing is influenced by mythology, occult imagery, and the natural world.

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!
