It's no secret that I believe in the power of Tantra to help us change our lives and have incredible intimacy.

Tantra has been my personal spiritual practice for over 10 years and I've used it to help transform the lives of thousands of people I've worked with.

One of the most powerful teachings of Tantra for me, has been the incredible feelings of love it's helped me open to - and the intimacy I see it create between couples.

First and foremost though, Tantra helps us connect more deeply to ourselves - so that we can connect more deeply with a partner.

In this episode I'm diving deep into how Tantra can help us deepen intimacy and facilitate our own growth and self-awareness.

Joining me is fellow Sexologist and Tantra Teacher, Waratah Kerlue.

Waratah works with men, women and couples to inspire greater fulfilment within intimacy, sex, love and life. She's a Sexologist, Intimacy Consultant and Couples Therapist, highly skilled in helping you to achieve contentment, fulfilment and empowerment within sexuality and intimacy.

Waratah takes a holistic approach to her work which is grounded in 20 years of mindfulness training, science-based advice and powerful practical tools. She's funny, wise and incredibly compassionate in her approach.

Listen in as Waratah and I discuss:

  • The importance of starting with connection to ourselves
  • The questions you need to ask on a first date to discover if someone is right for you
  • Practical steps to discovering what you enjoy sexually
  • The power of giving ourselves permission to ask for what we want in bed - and why that can actually be incredibly sexy
  • How to talk to your partner about improving your relationship and sex life

I also open up about a recent experiment I did on another podcast


Waratah and I share our favourite Tantra practices that you can try with a partner tonight.

Over the last few weeks on Wholehearted: Love Sex + Intimacy – The Podcast we’ve been talking about self-love and body image, because we know what a huge impact this can have on a woman’s confidence, mental health, her relationships and intimacy.

I’m really passionate about women loving and accepting ALL of themselves and because, for me, that includes ALL of their bodies as well, we are going to talk about Vulvas and Vaginas today.

And this area - women’s genitals - is an area that we don’t really talk about – but they can really impact upon a woman’s confidence and pleasure.

So, we’re going to go there ...


We’ll talk terminology, because it is really empowering when we know the correct names and parts of ourselves.

We also talk labiaplasty and its rise in popularity.

We talk to some amazing women and men and find out how they feel about Vulvas and Vaginas and I hope after listening to this episode you feel more confident, more appreciative and more in love with your Vulva and your Vagina… after all they are part of you, and you are simply magnificent and perfect as you are.

In this episode:

We talk to some ladies (thanks to Rebecca, Karenna, Em, Richelle, Sarah, Trudi and Nathalie for being so open and willing to share) and ask;

- How do you feel about your vulva/vagina? 

- Has this changed over time?

- What are some of the worries/concerns you’ve had about your vulva/vagina? 

We get a man’s perspective on things

- What are men's real thoughts about going down on a lady? Do they find it gross or a turn on?

- Do you care how a vulva looks, tastes and smells? 

- How well do you think you know these parts of a woman's body, really?

And we also get a Professional Opinion asking:

- What is ‘normal’?

- Do our genitals change as we age?

- How does childbirth impact a woman’s vagina?

- What do you want women to know about their genitals?

Question: What’s one word you’d use to describe your vagina?


Explore these Resources

Here’s the video we promised explaining all the terms and anatomy of vulvas – this is out of Isiah’s online course for women Epic Os.

We also recommend these empowering resources:
