with Debra Pascali-Bonaro

Birth and sex are transformative, intimate, and deserving of safe private spaces that honor the essence of the experience.”

Episode 100, orgasmic birth the podcast

Welcome to episode 100!

Our podcast has hit its pleasure peak as it reached its century mark all thanks to you, our dear listeners. 


And what better way to celebrate this milestone than to reclaim birth as a natural and pleasurable experience with a heartwarming and insightful message from your host, Debra herself! 

Societal conventions have long inhibited an open discussion of birth’s inherent sexuality. However, when a woman’s experience of her changing and birthing body is shrouded in silence rather than embraced as natural, she is deprived of cultivating an environment to honor birth’s intimacy.  

In this episode, Debra talks about transforming childbirth from a medicalized procedure to a natural, pleasurable experience by embracing its inherent connections to sexuality. Listen in as she discusses how physiological and psychological factors can either enhance pleasure and flow or diminish these experiences during both labor, delivery, and intimacy. Debra also shares mind-body techniques that can help women get “out of their head” and fully into their body, the role of embodiment practices, how to cultivate a safe space to honor birth’s intimate nature, and challenging the societal norms that have stripped away acknowledgment of birth’s sexual elements.
