Manta and I sat beside one another and that is when I learned about her fearless approach to sexuality, experimenting with cannabis, and her fierce belief that women are powerful and amazing beings worthy of all good things—including taking your power back and not shying away from ultimate pleasure.

CannaSexual is a Movement by Dawn Garcia, A Taste of Dawn Magazine, May 2023

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

"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."

    On Claiming

    I posted a quote in my stories that says “fear of abandonment often means we abandon ourselves” and it resonated deeply. ⁣⁣It made me think. ⁣⁣I try not to use negatives so I didn’t want to say “don’t abandon yourself” but I didn’t know what the actual antonym for abandon was. So I looked it up. ⁣ It's claim. The opposite of abandonment is claiming.
