"I’ll take any excuse to reach out to sex educator—and role-play aficionado—Ashley Manta, so that’s exactly what I did. Her first tip is to embrace the awkward feelings."

How To Do It Column by Jessica Stoya, Slate.com, February 2024

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

It offers a beautiful spread of psychedelic art and bold images to explain how CBD can increase pleasure, and how to harness its properties properly. Manta even provides DIY recipes on how to make your own lube at CBD-based lube and mocktails at home and includes suggestions for bedroom activities that can help fresh up the reader’s experiences in the bedroom"
