"...Little did I know the first session we'd end up in would be a seminar with "CannaSexual" Ashley Manta, using a vulva puppet to instruct a room full of women, millennials to boomers, how to find the clitoral legs. (If you didn't know already that the clitoris has legs, you're welcome.)
So there I was sitting next to my mom, two feet in front of the bubbly weed-sex educator, in awe over Manta's professional yet entertaining delivery as she discussed the benefits of using cannabis lube to enhance female pleasure." - Madison Margolin, LA Weekly
