Elevated Sex, Enhanced Intimacy

Welcome! I'm Ashley Manta, an award winning pleasure & intimacy coach and facilitator. I am also the host of Elevated Intimacy podcast and the creator of CannaSexual®. 

I'm available via Zoom for individual or couples elite relational consulting. I am also able to travel to conduct workshops for private groups, colleges, bachelorette parties, sex shops, or events. My mission is to help people have joyful, empowered sex lives! I also review cannabis products, accessories, and sex toys. Check out my blog to get some insight into my work and please email if you're interested in learning more about what I do!


One common misconception “CannaSexual” coach Ashley Manta is happy to debunk is that sexuality has an expiration date. As far as Ashley is concerned, she’s planning to have sex until the day she dies. And why not? Particularly when she can use cannabis to enhance - and extend - the experience.

No Expiration Date: A Sex Coach and Therapist on Seniors, Intimacy, and Cannabis by Abbie Rosner, Forbes, May 2019

"...a warm and wise blonde cannabis sex coach who calls herself the CannaSexual."

The Rolling Stone Guide to Legal Pot: California by Amanda Chicago Lewis, Rolling Stone, April 2018.

"Everyone has secrets. Dirty little ones that they’re not ready to confront or confess. And some of the biggest secrets of all typically fall within two realms: sex and drugs. While society may be loosening up in many ways, the taboo nature of these topics still sweeps them under the rug—out of sight, out of mind, and under discussed. 

Antithetical to the aforementioned we find Ashley Manta. Unabashed, unashamed—and most of all authentic—her work as a CannaSexual shines a light on the those things you don’t feel comfortable talking about. Sexual trauma, body image, polyamory, and of course cannabis are but a few of the topics at the forefront of the conversation in Manta’s work, where her willingness to translate the taboo provides a powerful lesson to those that can handle the uncensored truth."
