honey talks podcast with katya nova (nurturingnovas)
Summary: Shockingly honest, relatable, and inspiring conversations about life-changing sex, motherhood, and healing through pleasure.
GOLD breakthroughs. So many couples are suffering - couples who love each other deeply, but intimacy is bleh. Lacklustre. We live in a culture obsessed with sex, but most of us are not sexually satisfied, not truly fulfilled and fed. We place impossible expectations on our partners and harbour resentment and hurt. We have no language to ask for what we want, and we place our erotic desires at the bottom of our priority list, somewhere below work, parenting, and laundry.
As a conscious parenting coach, mama & ‘goddess temple’ modern-day priestess, Tamara Iglesias empowers families to live fully whole and nourished lives. She believes our children have the power to heal the world. Her approach focuses on respect, trust, and true empowerment through conscious words, actions, boundaries, quality time and slowing down, so that children and their caretakers can truly thrive.
Have you ever wondered why, in a society where most couples marry for love, the rates of infidelity, divorce, marital & sexual dissatisfaction are so high? Rob & I certainly don’t have all the answers, but at least we’re starting with the questions! Should monogamy be assumed forever? What makes a threesome exciting? Are socially unacceptable fantasies normal? What do we do with jealously? Can we really be everything to each other, and what does it mean to be truly whole?
What do claiming your financial power and sexual energy have in common? What’s the #1 thing affecting our financial well-being? In this episode, Jillian Anderson leads us through powerful realizations about sex, money, and healing our womb space. Join us, as we talk openly about how to claim our sexual desire and speak it to our partners, what we can do about the lack of postpartum care for women, how we can claim our financial power and what that has to do with sacred sexuality.
Christine shares how the OBGYN perspective is based on a 500 year old misconception of female anatomy, why kegels don't work, how to prevent incontinence & pelvic floor prolapse using the Whole Woman method, and how understanding our pelvic floor can change our life.
We’ll share stories of finding plant allies, using yoni steaming, opening to orgasmic potential, why we shut down our sensuality, how to find our way back to ourselves, and so much more. Dive deep with us into understanding that real medicine is sensual, embodied, and emerges naturally when we are in relationship with the world around us.
What if our body is an ear to the Universe and it’s our job to release the imprints of our past from our tissues? How do we do this, exactly? Jana Roemer tells us why Yoga Nidra is the answer to everything, why Yoni Egg is a vital practice, why we need to breathe with our pelvic floor, what it means to set boundaries, and how CBD & superfoods can supercharge our life.
Keli is at the forefront of researching the effects of this ancient practice on menstrual and reproductive health. She also founded the Peristeam Hydrotherapy Institute to train practitioners in the use of vaginal steam therapies. Call it what you will: yoni steam, gyno in a box, or peristeam hydrotherapy - this is women’s ancient medicine and it’s spreading like wildfire, as we’re remembering the wisdom of our grandmothers.
The Vestibule is one of the most profoundly moving paintings I’ve ever seen. Stephanie currently explores themes around empowered sexuality through her luscious erotic oil paintings and commissioned vulva portraits. In this episode we discuss what it’s like to have your yoni painted, how to listen to your pussy, how we perceive the world when we are and aren’t connected to pleasure, and … what it’s like to live and travel in Magda the Magic Bus!
Powerful insights on why women need story medicine, what intimacy can look like postpartum, FAM & a message to those TTC, re-membering matriarchy, what it means to be a witch, radical birth education, and so much more. You know, the kind of stuff we should have learned from big sisters, but we never did. We also discuss what intimacy can look like postpartum, and Emilee shares powerful insights on what may have contributed to my pelvic prolapse.
Part 2 of last week's 'cliffhanger,' where Katya & Rob discuss the most intimate details of their sex life after kids.
You'll wonder why some parts of this conversation weren't cut? Because this is the real work! Katya & Rob share the unexpected news that rocked their world, then discuss the bumpy ride that is their exploration of rekindling passion in their marriage.
Ashley is an intuitive herbalist, our business partner, and the creator of fknhoney love butter. Two girlfriends having an unusual heart-to-heart, Katya & Ashley get into some vulnerable, intimately personal & fun topics: the sexual self-care our pussies are starving for, what it feels like to apply & play with fknhoney, why we need to be more into ourselves, the gifts of cannabis, and epiphanies from ‘playing for the other team.’
Amber shares how she took healing into her own hands, eventually becoming a celebrated feminine sexuality mentor. She tells us that we cannot be sexually empowered and at the same time NOT be empowered everywhere else in our life. She’ll share why most of us have numb vaginas, why using a jade egg is better than kegels, what happens when we shut down our sexuality … and what to do about all of this.
We discuss Lacey’s birth story going viral, female body reclamation, THAT word, why we have trouble naming the space between our legs and why ALL of this matters. Also, a space called Save Our Sex, created to rally & take action surrounding the recent sex ban on IG.
