QUOTES:

“Somatic sexology work is hands-on work on the body, understanding your genitals, understanding your own sexual pleasure through a felt experience of it.” (Kiana)

“There’s a whole contingent of people, particularly women and people with vulvas who have discomfort, tensions and all sorts of different conditions as they try to access pleasure.” (Kiana)

“One of the biggest complaints I see is libido or sexual drive. Anxiety, inflammation, and discomfort are certainly part of this diminished libido.” (Dr. Dweck)

“There are two concepts: responsive desire which is this idea that we respond to inputs in our environment, and this impulsive, ‘on-demand’ desire that is shown in all of the movies.” (Kiana)

“Female sexual response is a combination of psychological, physiological, social, emotional, behavioral and contextual factors.” (Rachel)

 “We educate people around CBD and explain that it is not intoxicating. CBD has physiological effects and benefits on the body.” (Kiana)

“Sex gets very different after having a baby, whether you have a vaginal birth or a cesarean. Being able to support people in this transition to a different kind of sexual experience is so important.” (Kiana)

“A lot of women are interested in anal play because there is no chance of pregnancy during this type of sexual encounter. Others are going to say, ‘this is not my cup of tea and I never want to be involved in that’.” (Dr. Dweck)

“When you’re going from anal to vaginal play, you can have bacteria migrating that doesn’t belong in the vagina, and that can cause different types of infections. The key piece that we educate around is: how do you safely engage in anal play?” (Kiana)

“We know how subpar the education is around sexual wellness and intimacy. One of the great things about companies like yours is you’re filling in that gap that people aren’t getting.” (Rachel)
