Episode 1: Enter the CannaSexual
Updated: Feb 1
A podcast is born
Welcome to the first episode of Elevated Intimacy Podcast!
Ashley Manta finally has her own podcast!!!! Ashley, aka the CannaSexual®, is joined by producer and certified sex therapist, Sam (LMFT# 106352), to talk sex, pleasure, relationships and cannabis. Ashley shares juicy details about what goes on behind the scenes in porn and dreams about getting high with celebrities. The duo also explore what it means to be your own primary partner and what it is like going to couples therapy with a former boyfriend, who is still a lover. And, of course, there is an expert lesson from the CannaSexual herself on the science and best practices of incorporating cannabis into your sexy times, as well as tips on using cannabis intimacy oils like Foria to marinate a special vulva in your life.
