Note from Ashley: This is a guest post from a dear friend and attendee of Monique Darling's Wild Women Play Party, which I co-hosted. The event was welcoming to any women-identified folks. This reflection is provided by a lesbian identified cisgender woman, so please take this as her personal experience and not as a broad generalization about women-oriented play parties or those who attend them.
You know that feeling when your orgasm elicits applause from a room full of gorgeous, smart, powerful women in various stages of nudity? No? Well then— you’ve never participated in one of Monique Darling’s Wild Women play parties.
But before you let your imagination run amuck in pornographic images of Barbie-doll women soaping each other up in a giant bubble bath to swanky elevator music, I will tell you that nothing could be further from, or sexier than, the reality of this experience. Allow me to set the scene.
Happy Holidays from your favorite CannaSexual!
The following are products I love in the realm of cannabis accessories, self care items, and toys and accoutrements to help you feel more pleasure!
This list contains some affiliate links, which is great because that means that you get to support my work and buy awesome products at the same time! It’s a win-win! Also listed below are coupon codes that you can use at checkout to save some money (I know things can be tight around the holiday and every little bit helps!)
You’ll note that there are no cannabis-infused items on this list. That was intentional. Since not all of my readers live in California, it seemed prudent to only highlight products that can be purchased in all 50 states.
Note from Ashley: This post was written by one of the attendees of my Embodied Joy Play Party on 9/30/17. I was so touched and honored by her words that I asked permission to publish it directly on my blog and she graciously consented. Thank you so much to this incredible human and to everyone who comes out to my events. This is why I do this.
"I wasn’t certain what to expect when I pulled up and parked my dusty Subaru on that tranquil street. Dusk had just begun to gentle the strong Southern California sun. Immediately upon exiting my vehicle I was greeted by the bodacious and busty embrace of Miss Ashley Manta of CannaSexual. She had been waiting for me. Everyone had. Not only because, once everybody was accounted for the doors had to be locked for privacy, but also because that’s just who Ashley is. She is uniquely adapted to the career she has chosen, with her adorable smile, bright, engaging eyes and just overall loving demeanor. And it is just like her to come out and personally welcome each guest.Read more
Primordial. Cindy Capobianco of Lord Jones used that word to describe the consciousness-expanding event we had just witnessed and it felt entirely accurate. On April 18th at NeueHouse in Los Angeles, Lord Jones and Sigur Rós debuted their new edible gummy alongside a kaleidoscopic Sound bath and light show experience. It was a joy to witness and I left feeling simultaneously soothed to my core and blown wide open.Read more
I know it's been awhile since I've posted a blog. To be honest, I haven't felt very inspired to write. But then I remembered--I love the camera! So, I recorded a FB live video about the spectacular afternoon sex date that I had with B today. Contains discussions of: cannabis, energetic sex, Tantra, sensuality, relationships, sex toys and supplies, safer sex.Read more
Cannabis focused dating is very in right now. There are 21 million Google hits for “cannabis and dating,” cannabis-friendly dating services are offered by coaches like Molly Peckler, and if you’re technologically inclined — there’s an app for that. Several, in fact.
In the age of cell phones, it makes sense that singles would want a streamlined way to find prospective partners with similar interests. If you’re a cannabis consumer and you’ve ever dated someone who wasn’t, you’re familiar with the occasional frustration of navigating that interaction. It makes sense that one might want to find a partner with whom they can share their herbal indulgences.
To see whether they live up to the hype, I tried out three cannabis dating apps: High There, 420 Singles, and 420 Friends. I’ve been sporadically on Tinder for a couple years now, so that was my main basis for comparison.Read more
Did you know that I do product reviews? I love reviewing cannabis flower strains, topicals, edibles, tinctures, concentrates, vaporizers, glassware, and other supplies! Sometimes I even do sex toy reviews (but typically with regard to how they worked with a cannabis product I'm using). If you're interested in having me review your product, email Ashley@AshleyManta.com with subject line "Product for Review."
Putting weed oil on your bits is a hot topic in the growing cannabis market. Companies like Whoopie & Maya and Foria are providing cutting edge products in states like California and Colorado. But what about those that have the urge to give it a whirl but don’t have access to a dispensary? DIY!Read more
