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. 
 
When I heard that Lora’s company ‘Laura DiCarlo’ was awarded a CES Robotics Innovation Award which was then rescinded because the product was deemed immoral, obscene, indecent and/or profane, plus she was not allowed to exhibit on the floor during CES I knew we had to dive into this on Ignite Intimacy. The product itself supports people with Vaginas to have blended orgasms. Nothing obscene about that from my viewpoint! 
 
So please join entrepreneur, trailblazer and innovator, Lora Haddock and I as we explore the world of sex tech, female entrepreneurs, gender equity, blended orgasms and pleasure on Episode 115 of Ignite Intimacy!!!
 
About Laura

Lora Haddock has over a decade of experience in healthcare, and after an honorable discharge from the US Navy she enrolled in a pre-med program. As a self-described “anatomy geek”, Lora became fascinated with the psychological, physiological, and anatomical aspects of the female orgasm. She left med school to design functional product specifications determined to produce the perfect orgasm, drawing on years of research and anatomical data she had gathered from hundreds of women. She founded Lora DiCarlo in 2017 and began her journey towards launching new physiologically appropriate women’s health and wellness products.

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.
 
So join me, your hostess with the mostess, Ms. Laura Aiisha, as I share my morning self care routine, which alleviates anxiety, grounds me in my body, generates gratitude and elevates my energy and cells for an activated juicy day… everyday on Episode 113 of Ignite Intimacy!
 
About Me:
 
 
In 2006, after a career on the business side of music, television and film, I began supporting small businesses internationally with new business development consulting. My twin sistar, Sarah Haykel and I, were featured speakers for TedxBuffaloWomen in 2013, and in 2014/15 I released 7 original songs that I’ve been performing nationwide. During the Summer of 2016 I launched the ‘Ignite Intimacy’ podcast, which focuses on intimacy, romantic relationships and sexuality. And, in 2017 I co-founded a project called 'Inclusive Conversations' bringing women of color and white women together to discuss the issues that separate us. I’m a Mom to a 21-year young daughter, West African dancer, cookie baker, music lover and world traveler currently nomading between the US and Mexico while working remotely!

Corinne Loperfido is one of a kind in every sense. I remember first meeting her in a loft building in downtown Los Angeles where she was living at the time. When I walked into her place it was like the most beautiful explosion of creative expression, color, sound, sensuality, bold imagery, pussy power jewelry just enveloped me and drew me in. I HAD to know this wild and wonderful woman!
 
We’ve stayed in touch and now two years later have connected worlds between New Orleans (where Corinne is living out of her van at the moment), and Los Angeles (where I was visiting), to record a conversation for y’all!
 
Join Corinne and I as we go in on a conversation that dips in and out of embodying bold, clear and powerful communication in our relationships, toxic masculinity, freedom of self expression and movement, courage, creating a zero waste lifestyle, recreating our societal funk, choice, personal power and more on Episode 111 of Ignite Intimacy!
