It makes perfect sense that we’re launching the Love, Sex + Magic Podcast with the incredible Layla Martin. As some of you know, I’m training within Layla’s Sex, Love and Relationships certification at The Tantric Institute of Integrated Sexuality, so I have first hand experience of how profoundly knowledgable she is on these subjects.
You can think of this episode as a ‘Goddess Guide to Spiritual Sex’, as we discuss the interconnectivity of sex and spirituality, including how sex can be one of the paths to spiritual awakening. Sex is sacred – and in this episode we cover how and why we can use this practice to tap into a higher space of consciousness. We talk Tantra, and get down to the details of how we can apply this esoteric tradition to our modern lives.
Layla speaks into her personal experience and journey, discussing healing from trauma and how that led her to live into her purpose and do what she does now. We dive deep into how we can unblock ourselves and stop holding back from fully embracing our sexuality. We explore the history of women and sex, our conditioning and collective shame, and what it truly means to be a woman in touch with her femininity.
As well as this, we unpack self love, sex toys, high sex drive, low sex drive, porn and more… there’s really no stone left unturned in this introductory episode of the Love, Sex + Magic Podcast – and I can’t think of a better way to kick off this magical series!
