Podcast: That Sex Episode with Alexa Martinez

Let’s talk about sex FitMama! Get ready for this interview with one of my faves!

Alexa Martinez is a sex, love, and relationship by design coach and sex coach business mentor on a mission to reform sex education and sexuality expression across the globe. She helps liberate people when it comes to their sexual expression and helps them discover what their sexual desires are and achieve these and their other desires in life as a whole.

Alexa helps a wide range of people and uses multiple modalities and Alexa also can help you understand why you are not in the mood for sex. It might be because there are just so many other things going on in your life but the reasons can be much deeper for you not wanting to access and feel okay with experiencing pleasure. Because understanding what’s at play allows you to take control over how things progress so you can control the outcome.

One of the techniques that Alexa teaches is breathwork, which can help alleviate trauma by over-oxygenating the brain and body. She also shared that guided breathwork can also be incorporated in sex so that you can enjoy sex in a more tantric, more mindful, and more present way.

Alexa shares what got her into being a sex coach and how she believes that sex should not be on the bottom of one’s list because sex is a gateway and helps you access more who you are so you can be a better mother, wife, or anybody that you are, fully expressed, connected with herself and regulated in one’s own system.

One of my favorite resources (get your copy!) that Alexa shares are her Will, Want, Won’t List for couples or individuals to explore, which is a compilation of 300 items that you and your partner answer separately to crack each other’s desires. It helps a couple understand what each other wants to happen during foreplay, the sex itself, and the aftercare. The Want list includes what you desire to be done to you. The Will list includes what you will do for your partner in case your partner wants it, while the Won’t list is the hard limit and non-negotiable aspect of the list, wherein the boundary lies and it’s something you “won’t” do.

Alexa also holds the Sex and Love Academy, a 6-Week Transformational Program that will expand your sexual knowledge, improve your communication skills, and create the sex and love life you’ve always desired. Subscribe to join the SLA waitlist and to stay informed on when the doors will open!

Podcast: Orgasmic Enlightenment and Vaginal Weight Lifting with Kim Anami

Kim Anami, a sex and relationship coach and vaginal weightlifter, discusses the true power of sex and the benefits that come with being A Well-Fu*ked Woman.

According to Kim, there is an epidemic of sexually unfulfilled females in modern times. These women express this as feelings of anger, frustration, depression, and behaviors like overeating.

Sex is the greatest resource for rejuvenation and vitality. It improves one’s energy levels and mood. A woman’s marriage, relationship with her partner, and overall physical health can benefit from having regular sex (with a partner and/or herself). Moreover, partners who are active in sex can become a superpower couple as they become each other’s power source, and consequently, this impacts their relationship, family, and other aspects of their life in a positive way.

Kim also shared that a woman does not need a husband, boyfriend, or any sexual partner to be well-fu*ked. Just by pleasuring oneself thru meditation, masturbation or creation can make her sexually fulfilled and well-fu*ked.

Kim concluded that sex can be seen as a powerful tool, if not THE most powerful tool, in a woman’s personal growth toolbox, just the way we treat exercise, meditation, and diet.

Be sure to check out Kim’s blog and podcast page. More lessons about what sex really is, what we have not been told and other topics that discuss sex in greater, more meaningful depths can be found there, along with loads of her online programs available throughout the year, such as The Well-Fucked Woman, Sexual Mastery for Men, Vaginal Kung-fu, Sexy Mama Salon (for Holistic Pregnancy and Blissful Birth), G- Spot Ecstasy, and Coming Together (for couples).

Podcast: Benefits of Orgasms (and how to have more)!

Be prepared to get excited in this episode (I did!)

Today I talk about edging yourself towards orgasms and the many benefits to doing so. Not only the orgasm itself but also all the “foreplay” that can go into it, solo or with others.

In this episode, I talk a lot about body image and some new ways to look at the things we see in the mirror. Some new thought patterns and habit patterns can take you to new places with unconditionally accepting your body, loving it from the inside out, and outside in and honoring yourself and your needs daily.

Each of us deserves to feel pleasure and to prioritize it in our days.

Our intimacy with ourselves plays a big role in connecting with partners and plays a big role in all other relationships we’re in. Role modeling sex positivity and body positivity for our children is an opportunity we all have that will benefit each of us greatly.

Schedule in some time for pleasure, play, self-pleasure, and mirror gazing. Stare at your beautiful naked self in a mirror or take a few naked pictures of yourself and begin admiring yourself. Even closes ups of your vulva (yoni), especially at different stages of arousal and post orgasm. See the beauty and love what you see. This will enhance your pleasure!

While there are many benefits to orgasms, the best ones come not from forcing them. Don’t make sex or sexy playtime all focused on achieving orgasms because the anticipation and the buildup to the actual release feel oh so good as well.

Please share this episode with a friend today!

Podcast: What’s a Doula with Christa Ardelean

This week’s episode will leave you feeling empowered about birthing.

Pregnant women are consistently bombarded with fear messaging about the pain and suffering they are about to embark upon through labor, delivery, and raising children.

Christa Ardelean is a birth, sibling, and postpartum Doula and a childbirth educator. She is an advocate of empowered birth planning. Christa differentiates between the pain vs. the suffering we can experience on our journeys to becoming moms.

We talk a lot about the fear that surrounds birthing in our culture and Christa shares what she does in her role as a doula and explains what a doula can do to bring about a more comfortable birthing experience.

We go deeply into comfort measures and the research shows that oxytocin is released as a result of the mother feeling comfortable. We dive into some of these measures that can make birthing that much more of a delightful experience.

I am always encouraging moms to journal about the good, the bad, and everything about their birth experience.

Christa encourages this and goes on to say it’s normal and okay to mourn your birth if things didn’t go as planned and you still birthed a healthy baby. Let yourself be sad she says, I agree and know that processing these emotions is vital to mind-body health.

Please subscribe to the FitMama Podcast and please share this episode with 2 or 3 friends.

Thank you so much.

Podcast: Eat Without Pain featuring Dr. Kim Bretz

This episode will have you asking some good questions about how you really feel when you eat. Before, during, and after.

Dr. Kim Bretz, ND is a Naturopathic Doctor in Canada who is a passionate international public speaker and consultant on gastrointestinal health.

As someone who knows the pain of “IBS” and irritable bowels, I know the pain one can go through when it feels like anything you eat makes you bloated, sick, or constipated, or worse, running to every bathroom.

Kim talked about how eating foods should not feel and how to get to the bottom of some of the pain you might be feeling if you have gut discomfort. Kim shared her humor and passion and answers some key questions in the episode such as:

  • What bloating is a sign for
  • Why heartburn is happening
  • Why we have to change pants by the end of the day
  • What the physical pain and bowel changes are saying

Dr. Kim Bretz shares how the IBS world has changed and explains that 15-20% of the population are getting diagnosed with IBS. While IBS used to be recognized as a default gut issue when they didn’t know what else was wrong, now technology has afforded us the capability of understanding and testing specifics of the bacteria in our guts and now we can rectify the imbalance of the bacteria through diet and other interventions.

Deprivation is not the only way and Dr. Kim talks about reintroducing foods and how no foods need to be “off-limits” for life (other than allergies).

Get in touch with Dr. Kim Bretz, ND if you are having gut issues you can’t seem to solve. She will help you eat without pain! Find her and follow her hilarious musings on Instagram.com/drkimbretznd

Meghan is an inspiration and it shines through in each moment of this interview.
