What is CannaSexual™?
CannaSexual™ is a word Ashley created to describe anyone who mindfully, deliberately combines sex and cannabis. It has grown to become a lifestyle brand, used to represent pleasure-focused events and educational workshops. Cannabis can be used to enhance sensation, ease discomfort, and promote intimacy during solo or partnered play. Ashley also stresses that a psychoactive high does not necessarily accompany cannabis use. One can easily use topical THC-infused creams, sprays, balms, or any CBD-only product without psychoactive effects. Ashley has also become known as "the CannaSexual™" as a result of her passion and her expert knowledge about sex and cannabis.

What People Are Saying About CannaSexual™
It was a timely presentation considering mainstream American culture now seems more receptive than ever to the idea of using cannabis as an aphrodisiac. Though weed has long been known as a sex enhancer, the leafy green plant is just now coming out of the underground in the United States. As it grows into a billion-dollar industry, the overlap of pot and sex is turning into a niche market of its own. Yet amid all the upbeat listicles and aphrodisiac weed strains, experts like Manta offer a dose of reality: The relationship between sex and pot is often more complicated than it seems.
"I want people to feel safe and comfortable incorporating cannabis into their sex lives,” Manta says. “I want people to be armed with knowledge, so that they can make the most informed decisions possible for their bodies and their situations.”

Anyhow, sitting here listening to Ashley Manta describe stoner sex after devouring a quarter of that affogato bar with breakfast, one has a few thoughts. This woman is proselytizing before an audience that hangs on her every word. We, the flock, are gathered. It is a Sunday morning. One topic is a sacred act, another a revered substance.

The next day, Manta had a photo shoot at Hustler on Sunset Boulevard, which has hired Manta to give demonstrations in its shops. She gave an impromptu mini-demo of how a clitoris is stimulated, using a vulva made of fabric.
The self-proclaimed “sex geek” was in her element as all eyes were on her vulva, so to speak. “Using cannabis as an intimacy tool can add ease and pleasure to love-making,” she said. “Did you know the clitoris has legs?” Manta said to Hustler employees, moving her fingers slowly over the outer edges of the vulva.
There are many cannabis products on the market now geared towards intimacy. One of Manta’s favorites is Foria’s topical stimulating oil.
