Today I want to start a conversation on a topic that you won’t often hear about, and that is about connecting more positively with your cervix.

Meet Today’s Couch Talk Guest, Olivia Bryant

Olivia Bryant

On today’s Couch Talk I interview Olivia Bryant, founder of Self:Cervix, a global project that aims to educate women on how to heal their cervix for more pleasure, deeper orgasms and easier childbirths. To date over 2500 women have taken part in her project.

Prior to starting Self: Cervix Olivia worked as a sexologist and coach.

I recently met Olivia when she interviewed me on her podcast on the topic of how to have a more empowered menopause… and I absolutely loved her mission to help women with what has been a somewhat taboo and hidden subject – and that is a woman’s cervix and how it is so much more than just the point of attachment between the uterus and vagina.

Olivia is opening up this type of communication worldwide and is really helping  a lot of women. In many cases she is helping women figure out what is causing their pain, lack of libido and lack of orgasms. And with others she is opening up a new sexual awareness and awakening.

What IS The Cervix? 

The cervix is the lower part of the uterus that is within the vagina. It is the opening to the womb. Here is a photo (courtesy WebMD) of the cervix for an anatomical reference.

During a woman’s pap smear a sample of cells are taken from the cervix and examined for signs of cancer or other issues.

The cervix can also be a gateway to both pain and orgasm.

And that is the focus of today’s Couch Talk.

In Today’s Couch Talk Interview You Will Learn

  • Why some woman have a numb cervix (and what that is and why it matters!)
  • Why many women don’t have a cervical orgasm
  • What “armoring” is, and why it can interfere with orgasm as well as cause issues when having a pap smear or even using tampons or contraceptives
  • What the role of the vagus nerve is and how you can actually rewire your neural pathways
  • Why being able to relax your vaginal tissue is so important
  • How the state of your cervix and armoring can play a role in ease of childbirth
  • Why it is important to drop the perfectionism of sex

I hope you enjoy the interview! Let me know what you think or if you have any questions by commenting  below.
