Welcome back to The Steph Sanzaro Podcast.

In today’s episode we are joined by the effervescent Asti Maree, an incredible female sexual empowerment educator.

After years on her own sexual empowerment journey, Asti has found her purpose in helping other women rediscover their own.

As adults there can be a lot of shame and disgust attached to sex, but what can be found hiding underneath tends to be our conditioning and our trauma; leading to sensuality issues as adults, even resulting in the inability to orgasm.

In today’s episode Asti shares with us:

  • Her own sexual empowerment journey 
  • The way other women resonate with her being a stripper and how it correlates with the relationship they have with their own sexuality 
  • Destroying a belief that love and desire cannot coexist 
  • Stepping back into your own sexual power
  • Thriving as individuals in a relationship and together
  • How our childhood trauma can effect our sensuality as adults 
  • The unconscious conditioning of shame, towards sex and pleasure 
  • We cannot be thriving if were ‘surviving’, flight or fight mechanisms
  • Love, safety and belonging; as the building blocks to orgasm
  • Getting out of your head and surrendering to pleasure 
  • How our conditioning can lead us to believe we’re not allowed to orgasm, or don’t deserve orgasm
  • How to stop fear from cock blocking us from achieving our greatest desires
  • Acknowledging your emotions to disarm their power
  • The importance of boundaries in sex and relationships
  • How knowing your worth can change your life

This episode is filled with so much goodness from the beautiful Asti.

There is so much psychology behind sex, that could easily never be brought to the surface for many of us; but with Asti’s help she is guiding other women to dig deep and to find their blocks to pleasure.

Working on our mental health is an ongoing journey. It is something we need to work towards every single day. The more work we put into it and into ourselves, the better equip we become at managing our own mental health. And this is what Matt continues to do every single day.

Matt provides yet again another beautiful example of the value of never giving up. Even when you feel like things may never get better, or that there is no reason to go on; Matt is an example that there will always be brighter days ahead.
