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 LoveRomanceIntimacy, 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.


Ready to turn on the conversation?!!

I recently met Estrella Jaramillo at a conference for health and technology companies and was immediately taken by her energy and presence. 
 
Estrella has been focusing for the last several years on building and creating tools and services to support women to deal with the anxiety and stress related to their bodies, sexuality and gender equity. Because we’ve been focusing on sexual health in March and will shift our focus to how we view, treat and take care of our bodies in April, this is a perfect bridge between both conversations. 
 
Please join us for a powerful conversation where Estrella and I discuss women’s sexual health, the pelvic floor, anxiety, body image and tackling taboos on Episode 110 of Ignite Intimacy!

About Estrella

Estrella Jaramillo is the Cofounder of B-wom, a digital health solution for women. She is a passionate women's health advocate who aims to eradicate the anxiety women suffer when it comes to their bodies and their intimate issues. Estrella conducts women's health workshops and awareness sessions at private corporations, as well as for international institutions like the World Bank.
