So many women express a longing to be more in touch with their sexual selves.
To be able to ask for what they want, give themselves permission to feel pleasure, to be sexy…
And yet, so many of us feel stuck and unsure where to start.
My journey started with Tantra and in this episode of the podcast, I’m talking with Ly from Zensual Woman about my journey and how YOU can connect with your sensual soul too.
In our intimate conversation, you’ll hear:
I hope you love what we have to share.

I love giving oral sex to my lover.
There's something deeply intimate and incredibly arousing about oral sex to me.
Giving oral sex is an almost guaranteed way for me to turn myself on... But more important than that, it also opens my heart. It feels like a gift I'm giving my partner. It requires trust and surrender, especially if I'm in the mood to take my lover deep. I need to trust that he'll pay attention to me and not push too far. I need to feel like he's connected to me and appreciating me.
I know that not everyone shares my enthusiasm for it... It's one of those contentious issues that shows up with couples I work with in therapy sometimes.
Believe me, I get it.
I understand how it isn't everyone's cup of tea.
In today’s podcast I’m talking to Roger from curious creatures about oral sex. We share:
More about Roger:
Roger Butler is the driving force behind Curious Creatures. Roger was brought up white, middle-class, mostly heterosexual, and male. In addition to that lineage, they now identifies as kinky, tantric, polyamorous, queer, and very, very curious. Their training is in Process Oriented Psychology and the facilitation of groups, coupled with an extensive education in sexuality.
Curious Creatures believes that sex is about delicious, hedonistic experience as well as being a path of self development and a contribution to a less violent world. They run workshops in a whole range of related topics in cities across Australia.
On their podcast Curious Conversations about Sex, Rog speaks on topics as broad as complex relationship dynamics, body image, gender issues, sex in long-term relationships, kinky sex, abuse and trauma, modern tantra, and sex work.

I believe that all women deserve to feel confident, empowered and deeply pleasured around sex.
And yet, there’s so much about it that we’re not taught.
Knowledge is power beauty - so today I’m talking about orgasms.
It’s stuff that I believe we all should have been taught, but probably weren’t.
If we believe movies, TV and porn, we’re told that women orgasm easily, loudly and frequently, with hardly any effort and certainly no foreplay at all.
Unfortunately these myths just don’t hold up in the real world.
At least not for most of us.
So, let’s look at the numbers on orgasm.
30% of women struggle to reach orgasm on a regular basis.
and 10% of sexual active women have never had an orgasm at all. That’s 1 in 10 of us.
Men are twice as likely to orgasm than women during heterosexual intercourse. (Lesbians have a higher rate of orgasm that women having sex with with men.)
Sex can be amazing, fulfilling and fun without having an orgasm, and we certainly don’t need to have an orgasms every time we have sex.
But it can also be frustrating when we want to have an orgasm and can’t.
I want you to have all the info you need to make them as awesome as they can be, so let’s dive in to today’s episode.
It’s normal to feel shy and worried about raising the topic of sex with your partner.
In this episode, recorded as part of the Women’s Sexuality Conference, I talk to Maya Melamed about the most common issues that couples seek help with in therapy - and how to talk about them together.

Tantra is a topic close to my heart and something I know so many of you are interested in too.
I was recently told by someone who came to my workshop years ago that the lessons Tantra shares on cultivating more feminine energy actually changed her life - she credits it with attracting the gorgeous man she’s now married to!
This is why I’m thrilled to be talking about all things Tantra and the Divine Feminine with the gorgeous Elise Carr from Stella Muse today.
Here’s just some of what we talk about:

It's a topic that I'm asked about more than any other in my work.
Women's sexual desire can seem like a mystery - there is often so much about it that we're not taught and don't understand.
Lack of desire can be frustrating - and we can wonder if there's something wrong with us for having not enough of it or for having too much desire.
In today's podcast I discuss:
- The science behind desire we all need to know
- Common myths around desire
- Why we would even want to be connected to our desire
- How we can cultivate desire
- 10 practical tips for increasing your sexual desire
