EPISODE 230: Lana Kerr
[Fun, Empowering Music]
Amanda Testa: Hello, and welcome to the Find Your Feminine Fire podcast. I am your host, Amanda Testa. I am a sex, love, and relationship coach, and in this podcast, my guests and I talk sex, love, and relationships, and everything that lights you up from the inside out. Welcome!
If you are like me and, potentially, always looking for ways to feel better in your skin and just feel good and get your feminine fire rockin’ and rollin’, thank you for being here today, and I’m really thrilled because today on the podcast, we are going to be talking all about feeling good in your skin and why taking care of our skin (and not just on our face) is very important.
I am going to be talking with Lana Kerr. She’s the CEO and founder of Lumisque and CO2LIFT about how to feel amazing in your skin and why we need to care for all of our skin, especially our intimate skin, as we age. And so, welcome, sit back, get comfortable, and we will dive right on it.
Thank you so much, Lana, for being here.
Lana Kerr: Amanda, thank you for having me on your platform. I’m just -- it’s such a beautiful day today, and you're such a beautiful person, [Laughs] and I’m really honored to be here today. Thank you.
Amanda Testa: Well, I just have to say -- and, although, those of you listening, you can’t see, but I’m looking at her beautiful, glowing face sitting across from me, and I’m excited to talk about this because I know I live in Colorado where it’s super dry, but just in general how, you know, when it comes to taking care of ourselves, it’s a holistic process, right? It’s not just like one thing to another. It’s like we can’t always just segment things, and so, I would love to hear from you about kind of what led you into your passion for the work that you do.
Lana Kerr: Awesome. Ah, where do we start? So, I mean, my background is in accounting and finance. So that was many years ago. I went back to school after working for some time, there, into nutrition. I went back to school to study nutrition, opened weight loss clinics over, nearly, 25 years ago now, and we were helping people on that journey to look good or lose weight and feel better about themselves, and, generally, when people start feeling better about themselves, they want to get into other areas of feeling better, so we thought we’d take advantage of our clients who were already happy with us, and so, we opened up a spa.
Then, in looking for solutions to aging and the skin, just trying to find something different. Something that wasn't really heard about, really, here was Carboxy therapy. It was something that was done in Europe, and we were excited to bring in the machine. [Laughs] But we weren’t allowed to bring in the machine. The FDA doesn't allow that, and we were thinking how would we be able to leverage it?
So we just did further research, and we found some scientists in Japan who had actually patented a delivery system to put CO2 gas (which is what Carboxy therapy is) into the skin, not through a needle, but through a gel. So we were excited about that. We formed a company. We met with them, and we formulated CO2LIFT. And so, that’s the first topical Carboxy Gel because, prior to this, the only way to put CO2 gas into the skin was with a needle. So that’s kinda how we got into it. Before we launched, we did a clinical study just to compare the gel delivery system with the needle, and we used a video capillary machine, measured under the skin, and the capillaries are dilating the same way it was touching microcirculation. It was the same action that was taking place in the skin with the gel as it was with the needle, and so, we were very excited about it because, now, it would make it accessible to people at home to do it for themselves as well as there’s no pain involved and no down time, and the results are pretty remarkable and very quick to happen.
So, now, we like to call CO2LIFT the fastest way to better skin.
Amanda Testa: I love that, and, you know, it sounds like, too, because you were in that wellness industry, just seeing that, when there’s a desire to feel good, that pertains to everything. I’m wondering, too, because, specifically, I know now. I am of the age where I do want my skin to look its best, and the older we get, the more dry it gets, the more, you know -- not just in our face but everywhere.
I know you started with facial treatments and kind of extended from there to vaginal rejuvenation treatments, and so, first of all, let’s talk a little bit about what that even is for the listeners out there who might not even know that term. Then, I’d love to know a little bit more about what led you to this avenue.
Lana Kerr: Okay, so vaginal rejuvenation is really restoring the functionality and aesthetic appearance of the vaginal tissue because whether it be through hormonal changes, whether it be getting older or just after having children, that affects how that performs. So, for instance, you may get more dry down there. You may lose sensitivity. So you may not be feeling or enjoying sexual intercourse in the same way that you did earlier on in life. Then, of course, the outside, like all skin, it gets thinner and it gets older, and so, if we want to make it look as firm as the skin on our face that we’re taking care of, then we will do something to rejuvenate that there.
So that’s what it is. It’s not vaginal rejuvenation -- surgery isn't really vaginal rejuvenation because that’s really just -- maybe they use surgery for different things. Some women want it to look differently, and so, they will do surgery for that or they may have urinary incontinence, and they do surgery for that. Vaginal rejuvenation is a term used where you’re typically doing either some type of energy-based device or, now, to do Carboxy, to be able to restore that tissue.
How did I get onto it? Well, like most things that I become passionate about, it’s something that affects me personally, and when I was around 47, I started feeling differently in terms of my enjoyment level during sex, and so, I had gone to my gynecologist and just kind of explained that to her, and she just explained that, as we get older, we lose sensitivity. So she was recommending a device, a laser device, and I made the appointment and everything, but driving home, I was thinking we already have something that’s regenerating tissue very quickly on the face and on the body. Why wouldn't we use this for the vaginal tissue because it’s doing that without damaging the skin?
So we started a clinical study, and it was a double-blind study. So the women didn't know what they were using, whether they were using an ultrasound gel or they were using the Carboxy Gel technology, and what we saw was 100% of the women that used the Carboxy Gel showed significant changes in all five areas of what is called the FSFI Questionnaire which is a standardized questionnaire to measure enjoyment in sex. Then, once we received that information, we were pretty excited. Then we went to biopsies, and when the pathologist looked at the tissue of these women -- we used women in their sixties and seventies who were very dry down there, and after ten treatments the pathologist looked back at that tissue, and those women looked as if they were in their thirties and forties. So we were pretty excited (you can imagine) about bringing this to help women.
Before we even started, I tried it on myself, and I tell you something, Amanda. I mean, I really didn't remember how good sex was until after. In other words, because aging is so gradual, you kind of, “Oh, things are fine,” but when you actually are able to go back, you can compare and you say, “Oh, my goodness.” So I was very happy about that, but I thought this is mind over matter. So I got my mom and my aunt involved, and, you know, they went from sandpaper to butter, and I thought, okay, we have something here. We can help women. We put it together, and we launched and -- thousands of happy client stories. We are just convinced that we have something that can make a woman’s life just -- improve the quality of life for her through different stages in her life.
Amanda Testa: I mean, I think that’s so important because anyone listening knows that, as a sex and relationship coach, I do believe in how important our own physical pleasure is, how important our intimacy is if you have a partner or with yourself. You know, it’s just so important and then oftentimes in our culture, as we age, it is one of those things where you hear, “Oh, it kind of just dies off after menopause,” or, “Oh, you're gonna just dry up,” or, “Oh, you know, you're not gonna enjoy sex anymore or it’s gonna be painful.” All those things are common but they're not normal, right?
And as we age, you're right, all those things happen, and I love the non-surgical approaches because I think, yes, there are things that can be done, and then there’s a time and a place -- that’s the beauty of the modern medical world is that if you need something you can get it, but oftentimes there are things that we can do that are much gentler, right? Like this type of product.
Lana Kerr: Exactly, and surgery really doesn't address the quality of the tissue.
Amanda Testa: Right. Yes.
Lana Kerr: You know what I’m saying? In other words, what we’re actually doing is reconditioning that tissue so that it responds in the same way it did when we were younger.
Amanda Testa: Right.
Lana Kerr: So that’s what we’re doing. So I will say that’s all we’re doing. That’s what we’re doing, and that’s where the magic is.
Amanda Testa: Right, and that’s not involving a needle or uncomfortable laser treatments and things like that which, you know, again, I love this. I think it’s so important because when you are feeling pain or you are extra dry on your vulva or you're not -- as we age, we sometimes do need extra help, and often it’s kind of a fallacy that lubrication is a sign of being turned on, but just in general, you want to have healthy tissue because, like you say, the more elasticity, the more healthy the tissue is, the more enjoyable your experience, and that is so, so important.
Lana Kerr: Yes, and you know you said something that I just want to capture. The thing is that lubrication -- okay, I lost my train of thought. Continue. [Laughs] Sorry.
Amanda Testa: I’m curious though, what are some of the main problems that you see vulva owners facing when they come to you? What are some of the main things that people might be suffering from --
Lana Kerr: Okay, and I remember what I was going to say.
Amanda Testa: -- that they don't necessarily want to speak aloud.
Lana Kerr: [Laughs] So a couple of things. One is you're going to have drier -- it doesn't get as moist as quickly, and we’re not against lubes, and this is not a lube.
Amanda Testa: Right.
Lana Kerr: So this is not a lube replacement. However, what you're going to find is that this is going to make it where this is natural lubrication. So you could still use lube but just like when you were younger, you didn't really need that much of it, it would be the same thing. Basically, your tissue is just more responsive.
So you're gonna find -- so vulva owners will experience dryness, maybe, as I said, lack of sensitivity, maybe they don't respond as well, they don't necessarily reach orgasm as quickly as they did before. Also, another thing is even stress and urinary incontinence. Just, I mean, something where when they cough, they will pee themselves or they may not be able to run or they may not be able to jump on a trampoline. Those are some of the things that they may experience, and then now, too, so many women are removing the hair down there, and so, they want that skin to look plump and juicy. [Laughs] So this is something that’s gonna help them to achieve that.
Amanda Testa: Yeah, and I’m curious why -- obviously, when we age, there’s more of a need, but I know that this can actually be beneficial to vulva owners no matter the age. So I’m wondering if you’d share a little bit more about that.
Lana Kerr: Yes because, as I said, hormone changes affect women of all ages. So it can happen when you have a child. When you have a child that -- first of all, the trauma in vaginal birth, to help to bring it back, you can apply the CO2LIFT V down there to reduce the swelling and to bring back blood flow so that you can enjoy intimacy. So that’s one. So after childbirth.
When you're breastfeeding -- women get drier when they're breastfeeding. So this is going to help there. When you're taking certain types of medication -- some women may be on antidepressants or maybe on allergy medicines. Just like how allergy medicines dry out your nasal passage, it’s drying out that passage down there.
So those are some of the changes. Then, of course, some women who have had to have chemo, so that tissue down there may get damaged, and then they're gonna have a harder time enjoying or even having sex. So that’s another area, and then just, as we mentioned, just getting into perimenopausal, menopausal, again, our estrogen level changes. We get drier, and this is going to help to revive that area and recondition the skin and make us return to more youthful functionality.
Amanda Testa: Yeah, I love how you said, too, around bringing back the plumpness and the juiciness in the tissue no matter what you might be experiencing when you have the hormonal shifts. Also, just to improve -- I think at one point, too, you just mentioned just the look and feel of it so that you can enjoy your own vulva. I just want to name that for a minute because what I think is important -- because I personally believe in our culture, especially here in the US, as a vulva owner, we don't get a lot of love and praise for that part of your body.
Lana Kerr: Yeah.
Amanda Testa: And so, finding ways to reconnect with yourself and your body is so key because just like any part of you, it’s important, and I think the more love and care we offer ourselves, the better. And so, even if it’s just because you want to -- like you say, just for fun that you want to be loving towards yourself or whether you're healing, that you need to work with the application in a way that helps to reduce scar tissue and bring back your sensation and healing. I think that’s powerful.
Lana Kerr: Yes, you know, it’s interesting because one of the sexologists here in Florida who had called us because a couple of her patients that she had been working with for nearly a year started really enjoying sex. One of them was a breast cancer survivor. The other one wasn't, but she called us because she was saying this really is helping her patients, but she thinks, obviously, the physiology’s changing. We know this because we’ve done the studies. We can see it, but there also is a psychological benefit of taking care of that area. Just as you mentioned, by just showing yourself love in that area, you feel more control. You approach intimacy expecting it to be more pleasurable so that you’re coming to it with a different mindset, and for women so much of it is in our minds. So by doing this and showing this love to ourselves, it’s definitely going to help to improve our confidence, improve our enjoyment in our intimacy and then, therefore, in our relationship with our partners and then with ourselves.
Amanda Testa: Yes, I think that, what you just said there, about expecting pleasure is so important because if it is something where you’ve had pain in the past, that can just make you automatically, as soon as you even think of intimacy, be like, “Argh,” just tightening up, and you expect it to be painful, and just having that experience of being able to shift that mindset and to know that, “Oh, wait a minute. This can be a different experience for me,” is so important.
Lana Kerr: Yes, yes. Again, it’s all about, to me, taking control of you and the way we appear to ourselves [Laughs] and the way we feel about ourselves has a lot to do with how we’re going to impact other people. Especially in this area of vaginal health I think, as a woman, that makes us feel powerful to know that we control that and we are taking care of it.
You know something, too, Amanda, it’s not just about sexual intimacy --
Amanda Testa: Yes.
Lana Kerr: -- because sometimes, as we get older, women just have burning vaginas.
Amanda Testa: Yes.
Lana Kerr: Sometimes our pH changes, and so, we’re starting to get more infections. The CO2LIFT V basically brings our pH back to ideal. It’s a 4.5 pH so it’s going to help to prevent infections. It’s going to help with that burning that some women may experience for various different reasons. So it’s about just taking care of ourselves, and as we started, even in our introduction with our foot -- every part of us affects us.
Amanda Testa: Yeah.
Lana Kerr: But that area between our legs is a big part of what makes us feel like a woman, don't you think?
Amanda Testa: Oh, my gosh. I so agree with that because I feel like our sexual health usually is indicative of our overall health oftentimes, right?
And so, if something’s not feeling good, there are things that can be done about it, but it does affect every single part of you, right? Because if it’s uncomfortable, if you're burning, then that probably affects how you sit, the clothes you wear, the underwear you wear, how you go about your life, the things you do, the things you don't do, right? And so, when you can find more ease, more comfort, that changes everything.
Lana Kerr: Yes. Yeah.
Amanda Testa: Right?
Lana Kerr: Yeah. Mm-hmm.
Amanda Testa: Mm-hmm, and I think, too -- this is just a random thing, but I do feel like it’s so important because I know you mentioned confidence, and I don't think this is random at all. I think it’s very important because our confidence is so key. Feeling good about ourselves affects how we show up and the mindset, like you say, is so important whether it is how we look on our body, on our face, on our vulva, and because there is so much -- we are so harsh on ourselves, I think, oftentimes, right?
Lana Kerr: Yeah. Yeah.
Amanda Testa: We’re very hard on ourselves as women and wanting to maybe appear to look a certain way or, too, in our cultural conditioning of, you know, after a certain age then we’re not as desirable which I disagree with. I’m curious your thoughts on that.
Lana Kerr: No, I agree. First of all, I think what makes anyone sexy is confidence and, certainly, as we get older (just speaking for myself) I definitely have more confidence now than I did when I was in my forties and when I was in my thirties because I think experience gives us that. So, fortunately, now, we have the technology that allows our bodies to stay current with us.
Amanda Testa: Yes!
Lana Kerr: In other words, as we mature and get more wisdom and feel more confident in ourselves, we can still look youthful and enjoy the benefits of that confidence.
You know, there’s that saying that says youth is wasted on the young. I think, now, that doesn't even really apply so much in the sense that we have the technology that keeps us youthful if we just avail ourselves to it, you know?
Amanda Testa: Mm-hmm.
Lana Kerr: Certainly when you get older, in terms of in your relationships, you're more secure so, now, let’s bring the rest of us up to that level to enjoy that too.
Amanda Testa: I love how you say “that allows our bodies to stay current with us,” ‘cause I feel like no matter what age our numbers say, the way we feel probably does not correspond to that. That I know.
Lana Kerr: Yes.
Amanda Testa: This is true for all the different-aged people I work with. It’s like I look in the mirror, and I’m like, wait a minute. I feel like I’m, like, 29, but I definitely am not looking like that anymore.
Lana Kerr: [Laughs] Yes.
Amanda Testa: You know, that does affect how you show up. Did you ever watch that show on Netflix or something? I think it was called Grace and Frankie, but it was about these older women who get divorced.
Lana Kerr: Yes!
Amanda Testa: But just their stories are so funny, and I remember one of them was going to have sex for the first time with someone new, and she was like - immediately pitch black dark and hid under the covers. [Laughs]
Lana Kerr: [Laughs]
Amanda Testa: And I feel like, you know, sadly, a lot of people live their life that way, and it doesn't have to be, right? There are numerous things, of course, behind that, but just feeling good in your skin can help you turn the lights on and feel good in your skin and be excited to share your body with your own self or with someone else, right?
Lana Kerr: Yeah. Yes. Yes, definitely. Definitely, and as we continue to talk about technology, though, and things that are available, I’m really happy that you brought me on because I wish that this type of information was available to me when I was in my thirties.
Amanda Testa: Yes.
Lana Kerr: When we started, you spoke about how you want to start taking care of yourself in a better way or something to that effect, and one of the things I talk about is when you look into cultures that actually are ageless, they start very young. When you look at a lot of the Asian cultures, they actually start skin care from when they're in their teens. Generally, here in The United States (myself included) we didn't start until I was in my thirties, but it makes a difference. You can actually free it if you start younger so you don't have to wait to have a problem to start addressing it. Start to keep yourself looking that way, and then you kind of call it a freeze and it just staves off the effects of aging. I think that’s so important. Then, the same principle goes, not only for the skin on our face, but the skin down there.
Some people think, “Well, I don't have a problem.” So you're gonna wait until you have a problem? Because I’m here to tell you that that problem faces 90% of women as we get older.
Amanda Testa: Yeah.
Lana Kerr: We have so many groups that we do and just talking to gynecologists, as we get older our skin is going to get thinner, and when our skin gets thinner, then we’re gonna have all these other effects that come with it. Why not prevent that by just taking some self-care, not only to here but to downstairs?
Amanda Testa: Right, I love that. It’s like use it and you won't lose it.
Lana Kerr: Exactly, right? [Laughs] Exactly, exactly, and then, too, you talk about that -- use it and don't lose it. So some women, they're out of a relationship, they're divorced, and they want to start a new one. So they may have a period of time when they didn't use that organ, right?
Amanda Testa: Mm-hmm.
Lana Kerr: And so, similar to if you were to go to the gym and then you stop, eventually, you start losing that muscle. The same thing had happened so that blood flow is not there, so guess what? This type of procedure -- it’s not even a procedure -- type of treatment keeps the blood flow going so even when you're not using it, you're using it. [Laughs]
Amanda Testa: And that blood flow is so key.
Lana Kerr: Yes.
Amanda Testa: I think that blood flow is so key especially for arousal. You know, I always say this a lot of times to my clients: often, if there’s a lack of desire or -- there can be so many factors, but if you think about if you're humming along at, like, a 0, you're gonna have to put in a lot of effort to get up to a 60, 70, 80 miles per hour.
Lana Kerr: Yes, yes.
Amanda Testa: And if you are kinda humming along at a 30 or 40, it’s much easier to get there.
Lana Kerr: Yes. Yes!
Amanda Testa: So you want to remember to take care of yourself and do the things that keep you humming, do the things that keep your body vibrant and keep you vibrant, the things that turn you on, and it doesn't even have to just be around sex in general -- the things that holistically light you up make a difference.
Lana Kerr: Yes. Amen! [Laughs]
Amanda Testa: [Laughs]
Lana Kerr: Amen.
Amanda Testa: Yeah, so I’m wondering, too -- I know you’ve done a lot of clinical studies, and I’d love maybe if there are a couple of stories that stand out about clients that you've worked with or that you've heard their stories and it just really lights you up and reminds you why you created this product? [Laughs]
Lana Kerr: Oh, yeah. Okay, where do I start? First of all, yes, we’ve done the clinical studies, as you mentioned. In fact, we just did another one recently. The results are coming out, but it was mostly for the CO2LIFT on the face, and I was with the one that your doctor would give to you, but that was showing an increase in elasticity. For about 26%, an increase in elasticity - that’s a big number. So we talk about skin that’s on the face but doing the same thing down there, and we have the stories to prove it. So let me think of a couple.
One, a younger girl, she was 28 years old, I think you can YouTube it. She’s on talking about it. She’s 28 years old. She’s young, and she says she has always had painful sex, right? She actually has to just bear it. She’s like, “Oh, my god. This is horrible,” and so, she started using the CO2LIFT V, and she was talking about how, within the first three treatments, her husband noticed a difference in the looks of it. She’s like, “Ooh, this is really pretty.” [Laughs]
But, then, in terms of the function of her pain -- so she did ten treatments, and then she was saying, “There’s no pain in sex.” So that’s the one that if you’re a listener, just YouTube some of the stories. That particular one is there.
There’s another one that I can think of. She actually works with us - Rebecca. This is such a great story. She’s such a phenomenal woman. She was in her forties when she discovered that she had breast cancer, and it was stage three or stage four breast cancer but she just got married. So she just had a baby. So she was in her forties, she just had a baby, she just got married. Can you imagine having to go through all of that? So after the surgery, one of the things is she was just very dry, and she was thinking -- in her new marriage, to have to deal with this. So she went to her doctor, and her doctor recommended the CO2LIFT V and just how it changed her life. In fact, her vagina is doing things that it never did before. So that’s just a couple stories. [Laughs]
Amanda Testa: [Laughs] I’m wondering, too, when it comes to things like vulvodynia, have you done studies around that?
Lana Kerr: Yes, so what we found from that from some of the doctors who are using it, I mean, a lot of that is psychological, right?
Amanda Testa: Right, right.
Lana Kerr: And so, just kind of to speak to what you had mentioned before, just expecting sex to be more comfortable. You kind of relax into it so that those muscles don't tighten up. It has helped. Some doctors use it for that. They're using it for lichen sclerosus which is another condition where it’s itching and burning vaginas. So we’ve had some pretty great results across the board of women just with challenges or just with women like myself who just want to stave off aging and just to improve their quality of their intimate life because, as we get older, things can change.
Amanda Testa: Right. Well, I just love that you have created this company and that it is helping in all these ways that you never even intended when you first started.
Lana Kerr: I know, right?
Amanda Testa: I love just to talk about the different options and things that are available for the listeners because I think, like you say, this is a platform that I just want to educate people on to help them to have the best sex and relationships and feel good in themselves and really keep that feminine fire alive and flowing, and so, all the ways we can do that [Laughs] the better.
I’m wondering, too, if there’s maybe a question that you wished I would have asked that I didn't ask or anything else you want to make sure we talk about?
Lana Kerr: I think one of the concerns many people have when they listen to this is how easy is it to apply, and it’s very simple. It’s a matter of just simply mixing two gels. This is the box and how it looks here. This is the box here. Oh, they're not seeing it. I forget. [Laughs] Basically, you're gonna mix two packets together, and once you mix the two packets together, you take it up in the applicator, you pull it up in the gel, insert it pretty much like a tampon, and I like to just say go to bed. Go to bed, wake up in the morning, it pops out in the toilet pretty much like semen, and you're good to go. There’s no down time.
A typical schedule would be you're gonna do a minimum of three once a week for three weeks. You can do up to ten depending on the severity of symptoms that you're experiencing.
So once a week for three to ten weeks, and then once you get where you think you're good, then you can maintain it by doing one a month which is what I do. I do one a month, and it’s just a nice -- it’s part of my self-care. Once a month, I just love myself there, and you feel really good. It’s very cooling so there’s no pain involved. It’s very cooling inside, and then you wash it out. It will not cause a yeast infection. As we mentioned before, the pH of this is about 4.5 so, no, it won't. If you're suffering from some type of BV, then you want to take care of that with your physician and then work with this to help to keep the pH at 4.5 as well as all the other benefits that you're getting. I think that’s the only thing I would think, and it’s not expensive.
Just one more thing I wanted to just say, Amanda. I’m not against doing -- obviously, we work with a lot of physicians, and there are other things that people can do. So they can go and do some energy-based device which is great.
However, definitely pairing them together would be even better. Combo-therapy always works better, but if you can't do that, then certainly this is going to be a phenomenal solution to get yourself back or keep yourself from getting to where you don't want to go.
Amanda Testa: Yeah, and I think the beautiful thing about it is because not everyone wants to go to a facility when you have the ability to do something in the privacy of your own home. A lot of people enjoy that option.
Lana Kerr: Yes.
Amanda Testa: So, yes, and I do want to name that there’s a time and a place for everything.
Lana Kerr: Yes.
Amanda Testa: So everybody just chooses for themselves what that is.
Lana Kerr: Yes.
Amanda Testa: I appreciate that option. So I'm wondering, for the listeners, if there are any other ways they can find out more about you and the products, if you want to share all the goodness about how people can connect and if they want to try some?
Lana Kerr: Oh, awesome. Yes, well, certainly, I know we’re offering your listeners a code. So they will put in FYFF, and they’ll receive 15% off the website which is www.co2lift.com.
On the website, there’s tons of information. You're gonna see testimonials from so many women. They can YouTube it, Google it and see it but, again, it’s hormone-free, you can do it in the privacy of your home, and there’s no down time. You can jump right back into the saddle right after. Typically, a woman sees benefits after the first three.
Amanda Testa: Beautiful, and I know, too, even just you have amazing products as well for the face and the skin, so I am just appreciative of you sharing more about this. I’d also love to know when it comes to finding your feminine fire if there are maybe any words of wisdom that you’d like to share around that or what that means to you?
Lana Kerr: Yeah, oh, I think that a big part of life is enthusiasm. A big part of success is being enthusiastic about what you do. Enthusiasm comes with passion, and so, I feel like connecting with yourself allows a woman to bring that enthusiasm and passion out, and so, to look at intimacy as a way to do that for yourself -- there’s so much information now on the power of sexual energy and what it can do for you as a woman.
So keeping that fire lit is going to translate in, really, every area of your life. And so, definitely whatever it takes to be able to keep your passion going, keep that fire going, you definitely want to do that to have really great success in everything in your life.
Amanda Testa: Ah, thank you so much, Lana. It’s been such a pleasure to have you. I will make sure for everyone listening, if you would check the show notes, then I will make sure to put all of this information there as well, but there will be a special code (FYFF for 15% off) if you would like to play with any of these amazing products to bring back the juiciness.
Also, I just appreciate opening the conversation because I really do think that we don't talk about our intimate life enough. We don't talk about our vulvas enough, so the more that we can normalize these conversions and normalize our self-care and normalizing just treating ourselves the way we deserve.
Lana Kerr: Yes, Amen.
Amanda Testa: Thank you. [Laughs]
Lana Kerr: Thank you. Thank you, Amanda.
Amanda Testa: Yes.
Lana Kerr: Appreciate you.
Amanda Testa: Yes, and we will see you all next week. Thank you for listening.
Lana Kerr: All right.
