I am excited to share this conversation with orgasm expert and pleasure nerd, Mangala Holland.  Mangala shares her definition of orgasms and how it differs from mainstream understanding, the difference between orgasms and orgasmic states, the different types of orgasms, why it’s important to listen to what is true for you and what your body tells you and why the steady, slow and gentle approach is the way to building your pleasure capacity.  Mangala is vocal about abuse and manipulation in spiritual and sex positive communities and she shares her wisdom on how to find workshops that are trauma informed and the red flags to look out for.  And as two women in the midst of peri-menopause we had a great conversation about sex and pleasure at this time of life.  I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
