In today’s episode, we talk about skillful violation. I know what you’re thinking … what is that? And it sounds beyond wrong! Especially given everything we are unveiling around sexual misconduct and trauma. However by the end of this podcast conversation I was sold. There is so much to consider in our conversations and this concept has us truly listen in a way we never have before. Skillful violation is edgy and it’s fascinating … and it is actually the thing that will help us heal and prevent sexual misunderstandings and pain. 

So in this conversation with Ken, we cover the following topics and more:

  • How it takes major empathy, intuition, and connection to practice skillful violation
  • What are the components or ingredients to even have the conversation?
  • Breaking out of current restrictions and old operating styles when it comes to sex
  • The artful delivery of a man pushing past a woman’s no to see what is actually there
  • The reality that there may be a lot of trauma behind the Nos for us

Ken is a sex and relationship expert. Starting in 1999, studying female orgasm as his full-time gig, Ken became fascinated with its effects on both women and their partners. This formed the basis of a new way to understand man/woman dynamics as a whole.

In 2007 Ken joined OneTaste as lead instructor and was one of the primary architects of a curriculum that shifted the world conversation around sex and human relating.

Today, couples seek him out to help them craft their relationship from the ground up to be fantastic. His approach is bold, unorthodox and highly effective. Ken’s book “Powerful Woman Confident Man” is due out this fall.

In today’s episode, we talk about porn. Mostly from the angle of addiction and recovery as shared by someone that has been on that journey themselves as a teenager. I chose Vincent to have this conversation with because not only has he gone through it, but in some ways he is an advocate … in April of 2017 he chose Porn Addiction as his topic for a speech contest at his high school and shared about it to a group of 40 to 50 of his peers.

So in this conversation with Vincent, we cover the following topics and more:

  • Starting to watch porn at 6 and not until age 16 realizing he was addicted
  • His 9 months of recovery which culminated with meeting a girl and falling in love 
  • Motivation behind watching porn – wanting intimacy, connection, sexual expression, love
  • The judgment that can come in from addiction and the gentleness required
  • Confusion around dating and how to be with intimate partners because of what you expect from porn
  • Insecurity that comes from always being the voyeur
  • Perspective that develops of woman is just an object and the man shouldn’t be more than just a penis

Vincent also collected statistics and research around Porn Viewership and Addiction that you can access by clicking HERE.

Vincent is an adventurer, student of life, space holder and writer. He’s purpose is to express his passion leading to connection and aliveness. In the process, he hopes to spark others heart, mind body and soul to come into their fullest expression of them selves and feel alive and fulfilled.

He’s currently cultivating and chasing the dream to travel around the world and work to attain mastery in martial arts by hitchhiking from Belgium to China and learn Kungfu there, in a shaolin temple for 1 year.

In today’s episode, we talk about life outside of motherhood. Can you really have it all? Can you step away from being with a mom in order to be a better mom? To find the turn on in being a mom when you don’t have to do it 24/7? 

So in this conversation with Jennifer, we cover the following topics and more:

  • You can have both – the work and the motherhood – it doesn’t have to be either or
  • Shame around speaking up about needing more than motherhood and fear of being judged
  • The twisted perspective of being seen as irresponsible or offloading burden to others when having friends or family help to raise the child
  • Don’t have to give up everything else to have children

Jennifer is a writer, a coach, a public speaker, a seeker of information, and a stand for truth and love. What does it look like to know that you are enough and you effect change, just by your being, separate from your actions?  That is the question she helps people to answer, and then she helps them incorporate that answer into their bones.  Her mission is to assist people in finding balance. Balance between the “Me” and the “We”, in personal life, in work life, and in the world at large, helping to create better individuals and a better world.

She’s an entrepreneur, an activist, an avid traveler, a domestic goddess, and a walking contradiction. She lives in Seattle with her pre-tween daughter, Rory. Her writing has been featured on Elephant Journal, The Mission, Thrive Global, and P.S. I Love You.

In today’s episode, we talk sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Conscious use of all three that is, okay maybe more focus on the first two! There is so much stigma around sex and cannabis, which is why I’m excited to have Ashley on to myth bust as well as educate us on the conscious and amazing ways to do all of the above.

So in this conversation with Ashley, we cover the following topics and more:

  • Geeking out about the science of Cannabis
  • Intentionally combining Sex and Plant Medicine
  • Debunking the association of stoners being lazy, lethargic, boneheads
  • Cannabis helping you be a better parent, a better business owner, and having better sex
  • Using cannabis without being high

Ashley Manta likes to talk about sex—a lot. It’s not taboo for her. You know what’s else isn’t taboo for her? Cannabis. In fact, this bubbly buxom blonde has become a sought-after authority on mindfully combining sex and cannabis as part of her CannaSexual® brand. As a professional sex educator, writer, coach, and facilitator, Ashley helps people navigate these topics to make sure they are interacting, loving, and feeling their best in and out of the bedroom.
