It took some effort, and I'm super excited that I finally got to have a conversation with the incredible Dulcinea Pitagora on these topics and more.

Dulcinea continues to be the voice of the LGTBQ and BDSM communities, founding a variety of projects and creating resources for those seeking a shame free space to express their real selves.

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.

This week on the Ignite Intimacy podcast, my sistar Sarah and I get filled in on all the juicy details of Andrea Barrica’s passion for reproductive justice and the birth of her online shame-free platform for pleasure education, O.School.

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. Regardless of physical, cultural, locational, or educational differences, live streaming and live chat provide everyone with an inclusive, safe, and supportive community in which to unlearn shame and live in the desire the way it works for them.

About Andrea:

Andrea Barrica is no stranger to business ventures. After co-founding an accounting and tax platform at a very early age, she went on to have a hand in one of the world’s most active global seed funds. Now she combines her technological savvy and  “Empathy Warrior” vision to help those who have not yet been lucky enough to embrace their sexuality learn how to open themselves to their own power.

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 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!

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!

We discuss the effect of the feminine movement on modern men, and how to embody and balance both your female and male energies. And, of course, we talk “Millennial ED” and how you can heal your body, brain, and spirit in Episode 26, Millennial ED is a Thing with Tantrika Dani Katz!
