I first connected with Olivia online when Self-Cervix was seeking practitioners based in Los Angeles that worked with cervical dearmouring back in the Spring of 2017. Later that year, we both participated in Betty Martin’s Like A Pro wk-end training in Long Beach, and had the chance to explore the subtleties of The Wheel of Consent in person. Since then, I’ve enjoyed taking the Self-Cervix Release course and witnessing the evolution of Self-Cervix from its educational and practical hands-on vaginal & cervical dearmouring roots to honoring the spiritual and energetic alignment available in communing with this sacred portal.
Olivia Naomi Bryant was a Sex Educator & Sex Coach when she created Self-Cervix based on her personal journey of dearmouring her cervix – a deeply personal transformation whose path has mirrored and spawned the evolution of courses offered by Self-Cervix over the years – from Initiation to Release to Rapture, to exploring the Heart-Cervix Axis and Self-Partnership. She and Self-Cervix have been at the forefront of educating, empowering and revolutionizing our understanding of the power, pleasure and spiritual potential held in the cervix.
In her own words:
“I started this work bc I needed to heal. I felt like I was housing a brick inside of my pelvis – it was heavy, blocked and painful. I had no libido and very limited access to orgasm. This challenge became the beginning of a big adventure. In the larger picture of my life, I realized that I had a longing to find access to orgasm. After years of following instructions, using vibrators and signing up for courses, I had almost given up. I decided that I must be one of those people who wasn’t wired for internal orgasms and so I decided to celebrate the pleasure I did have. What I now know is that we are all human and orgasms of all kinds are natural for us. What are unnatural are the things that block these experiences such as shame and trauma….. Self-Cervix was born as my personal exploration into why my cervix was numb and how I could turn it into an organ of pleasure.”
How the Cervix is the only part of the reproductive anatomy innervated by 3 sets of paired nerves – the Vagus, Hypogastric and Pelvic – more than any other part of the sexual center, and yet, for most women, it’s the least sexually responsive.
How the medicalization of the cervix – from pap smears, to colposcopies, to LEEP procedures can leave the cervix feeling numb, un-sexy, and unaccessible.
How receiving cervical dearmouring from a trained and trusted practitioner can serve a vital and different function – engaging different parts of the brain, body and psyche whilst in a receptive non-doing state – than self-dearmouring.
How fully inhabiting your cervix provides a different felt-sense experience in love-making that can be felt by one’s partner – changing the love-making experience for both.
How the cervical dearmouring journey is unique for everyone and not necessarily a fast process – given the many factors involved, including history of sexuality, trans-generational trauma, collective societal stories stored in the pelvis, medical procedures, and scar tissue.
How cervical dearmouring involves letting go of any goal – “It’s really important to get into the exploration and forget the goal. As tempting as it is to be orgasm focussed, the treasure lies in who you become as you devote yourself to self-loving action. The work teaches us how to be with ourselves in a more self-aware and loving way so that we can create the conditions for these epic experiences to open up for us.”
How bodies can have a joy or “pleasure ceiling,” where the psyche can begin contracting or appear to be feeling “pain” when it begins to venture into new realms of unknown pleasure sensations, as this can touch into past unintegrated contractions that were never released.
How trusting the cervical tissue to inform how it wants to be explored empowers the cervix to restore and reclaim its own agency and sensations.
How continuing to relax the cervix into the finger, whilst letting go of any pre-conceived ideas or expectations of what pleasure is, and opening to new ideas of what pleasure can be, encourages new sensations to emerge in the dearmouring process.
How avoiding clitoral orgasms for a period of time – like a 30-day clitoral fast, can lead to unforeseen discoveries of the rich and vast intra-vaginal and cervical terrains of pleasure.
How the Cervix responds to Heart/Love energy, whether from one’s self or a lover, and how its the receptivity to heart energy that allows for high frequency states of cervical orgasms to occur.
Rahi: Welcome to Organic Sexuality, where we explore the restoration of pleasure, the reclamation of sexual sovereignty, and the realization of our embodied sexual nature. An invitation to honor the pleasures of your body by embodying the pleasures of your nature. I'm your host, Rahi Chun. I'm a certified somatic sex educator, a sexological bodyworker and creator of Somatic Sexual Wholeness.
Rahi: Before today's interview, an announcement that registration for the online course, the three keys to genital disarming for reclaiming and expanding pleasure is now open. Early bird pricing is available between now and August 20th, when full access to all course materials becomes available weekly Zoom group learning calls begin September 20th when registration closes. For more information, please go to somatic sexual wholeness.my kajabi.com. Today we invite Olivia Naomi Bryant, creator of self cervix to the podcast. Self cervix is about self-education, self reclamation, and self revolution by reclaiming and inviting a love affair with this often overlooked and medically mistreated part of the sexual and reproductive anatomy. Studies show that 60% of orgasms by vulva owners are experienced clitorally. Whilst only 10% are experienced cervical, despite the cervix being innovated by three sets of paired nerves, the most of any part of the reproductive anatomy. What is it about our current society's sexuality habits and patterns that prevents or avoids the deepest and richest of inner innovative sensations and experiences from becoming available? And what are effective and compassionate ways to De Armour the self-protective guarding response of the cervix with patience, curiosity, and love?
Rahi: I am very excited to be introducing Olivia Naomi Bryant, creator of self cervix to the podcast today. Um, to share her bio, I'm gonna quote her in her own words. Um, she states, I started this work because I needed to heal. I felt like I was housing a brick inside of my pelvis. It was heavy, blocked and painful. I had no libido and very limited access to orgasm. This challenge became the beginning of a big adventure. In the larger picture of my life, I realized that I had a longing to find access to orgasm. After years of following instructions using vibrators and signing up for courses, I'd almost given up, I decided that I must be one of those people that wasn't wired for internal orgasms. And so I decided to celebrate the pleasure I did have. What I now know is that we are all human and orgasms of all kinds are natural for us.
Rahi: What our unnatural are, the things that block these experiences such as shame and trauma. Self-service was born as my personal exploration into why my cervix was numb and how I could turn it into an organ of pleasure. Self cervix is so many things. It is se sex education. It is sexual healing, self intimacy, and a movement about rewriting and reclaiming the cervix as part of pleasure anatomy. And it has also evolved into a spiritual practice of inner alchemy. Um, I also wanna read this little part, also, part of self cervix. We are a community dedicated to revolutionizing the way the cervix is viewed by the medical profession, by science, and by sex educators. We are a global network of practitioners, teachers, and lovers devoted to healing and exploring the orgasmic potential of the cervix. Olivia, thank you so much for joining us today. It's great to have you.
Olivia: Thank you, Rahi. It's such a, um, it's really, I so appreciate being able to have the opportunity to share with more people about the cervix and, and this work. So thank you.
Rahi: You know, it really is a revolution. I feel like your inquiry has created, and that has, you know, birthed into self cervix. And the journey of self cervix has been such an incredible journey of starting out as cervical de armoring, and it's evolved into such a experience of self intimacy and self-loving, and now into this portal of exploring the inner alchemy of, of spiritual embodiment. Um, there's so much I wanna explore here, but I wanna start by asking you, you know, you share about the eighth month, the eight month journey that started with the tantric session in Bali, that, um, led you to become aware that your serv cervix was numb to the eight month journey of disarming it. And I'm wondering if you could start off by sharing, so for our audiences who aren't familiar with self cervix, what did you know about your cervical potential at the time? Because I believe you were a sex educator for many years, and what was that eight month journey like that birthed into the self cervix, um, experience
Olivia: When I, you know, honestly, I put like, the whole concept of cervical orgasm seemed like, uh, completely inaccessible fairytale for me, actually. And I was working, you know, I was on my own sexual healing journey already, and I had, uh, trained in a little bit of sex coaching, but not nothing that was nothing that really helped me. It, for me, it all felt very conventional and I, I, it wasn't giving me any access, nor were any of the many, uh, neo tantric tan trainings that I signed up for. And I, I really kind of went on this o on my own pilgrimage, and it just so happened that I went through a really difficult relating experience, and my whole body was shut down. And so that led me to go and seek healing. And to be honest, I actually put down the, the, um, the, my ambitions of, of, of, of sexual healing and wellness and expansion, because it just seemed like this huge mountain that with, you know, full of potholes and lamb mines and really scary things that would seem like they, you know, I dunno if, you know, it just felt very big to me.
Olivia: And I just gave it up. And then, um, one day I had this healing session and the practitioner said, can you feel your cervix? And I could not. It was absolutely numb. And what I did know, because of my previous readings and, you know, my delighting in what might be possible, I'd read, um, in the, the work of Dr. Barry Zaro and yes, Dr. Beverly Whipple, their book, the Science of Orgasm. And in there, uh, they are, they list the orgasmic, uh, nature of the cervix due to its three sets of paired nerves that are connecting into it. So I knew that there was a potential there, but it just felt so abstract to me because at that point, and I, I know this is true for so many of us with cervixes, that the cervix felt very uncomfortable, numb, medicalized, not at all sexy, mostly about birth or H P V or cervical dysplasia.
Olivia: Most of us have experienced pap smears and, you know, um, biopsies and, and, you know, cervical torture essentially mm-hmm.
Olivia: And, you know, I know that like so many others, I had been particularly, uh, trained and conditioned to the clitoral pathway. Not only had I been trained and conditioned to the clitoral pathway, but, uh, with a very massive vibrator,
Olivia: But this, these sort of mystical spiritual experiences that can occur to us in our, in our human experience. And I, I deeply longed for that sense of connection that I think that we're all seeking when it comes to, um, pleasure and especially orgasm, like the existential connection back to something way bigger than ourselves. So, so yeah, that set me on the journey. And then there was, this first part was just this exploration of why, why is this, why do I feel numb? And that led me down the road of like, well, isn't that interesting that it's, it's attached to the vagus nerve, which is all about regulating our nervous system for safety. And, and yet my cervix is numb. What is that doing to my nervous system? And then I got into a whole sort of, um, interest in trauma healing and the cervical de yammering. And, and that's how I started to unlock my body very slowly over time. Um, yeah. Mm-hmm.
Olivia: Yeah. There's a massive void, and it's, it sort of, it, it, it's interesting, isn't it, that there's this void around the most powerful plays in her body. Exactly. Should be, should be held on a pedestal as like, oh, you know, this thing, you know, but it's not sure. It's like, oh, well, you know, it is for the birthing world, you know, of course. Mm-hmm. And a lot of my work is inspired by the orgasmic birthing movement, but this whole other area that I think when not integrated and not understood leads a gaping hole, no pun intended. Sure. Where the, where we could be experiencing a more multidimensional, um, kinesthetic experience of pleasure. That's way, sort of broader than, you know, I, than I don't really, you know, I'm very cautious of using words like shallow or superficial, because you can have great sex without knowing that the cervix is there.
Olivia: You know, like, but I just think that it does give this fuller mental map of what's going on inside. It really just helps orient your mind to deeper places inside the body that are, are really orgasmic, that are real. It brings more reality to something that's such a mystery. The journey for me was mostly on my own. And I think that there was some sort of divine intelligence to that as well, because, you know, it's not easy when you're also, when you're trying to heal your own, um, pleasure body and your own sexuality, and then you're also dealing with somebody else's triggers and wounding and, and desires and pleasures and, you know, so in a way, it was a blessing that for a lot of this journey, I have been on my own, because it really has allowed me to be very, uh, pure in my, um, you know, my focus, you know?
Olivia: Yes. And it's not sort of muddled with another person, another dynamic. Mm-hmm. So, um, it has mostly been on my own. I actually developed my own, uh, wand Yes. So that I could do my own explorations, my own internal explorations, because most of the products that I found on the market were not long enough. Were not the right shape. So in my determination, I created my own, um, wand, my own tool for exploration. Yes. Which was amazing. And then occasionally I went to a body worker, because I did find that it's, it's great to have an assistant. Yes. You know, it's great to be able to not have your brain, you know, to have your brain in a, in a whole different, wider space. Mm-hmm.
Olivia: So occasionally I had a few, um, body workers that were, um, you know, I, I felt very aligned to I I, and once I found those body workers, I was very, uh, sort of, I stuck with them because I found that finding a, a body worker, and you might have a lot of understanding in this conversation that really has integrity, um, and is very clean in the way they, uh, they practice. Um, once you find someone like that, it's, it's a beautiful gift. So, um, there were a few that I would go to now and then, but, um, and if you have the resources to go more, more often, I think it's an amazing, amazing, um, uh mm-hmm.
Olivia: Mm. You know, that, I remember she did that. And I was, I was thinking to myself, you know, I was like, tick little, like little proud heart. Cuz I knew that like, okay, so something's happening, something's happening, there's more blood flow, there's more connection, there's more awareness, there's more presence. So, and, and that can be felt mm-hmm.
Olivia: But what became really interesting through growing my sensitivity was a, a, a deepening emphasis on the energetics, which is, we can talk about later. Um, but my, what I'm trying to say is that there is, that it is, it can be a, a long, slow deepening journey. And so when I read things like Five Steps to Cervical Orgasm, I'm kind of like, okay. You know? Yeah. And then we have these unrealistic experiences on ourselves. Like, oh, I did these five steps and it hasn't happened. There's something wrong with me. I'm broken. And I'm like, no, no, no, no. This is a spiritual path. You know, like the true essence of like a meditation teaching, it's like mm-hmm. You can't, it's like, how long is it gonna take until I find God, I don't know, maybe this life mm-hmm. Maybe the next life. You sort of have to release the goal. You have to release that as the outcome, because that's coming from a very different place inside of you. And really find your, find the, the, the richness in, in, um, in going inward in this way. And, and, and, and acknowledging and feeling what is there and, and building on that and deepening into that as you are very valid, beautiful human experience, you know? Mm-hmm.
Rahi: Yeah. To just piggyback on that, I wanna read something, um, that I pulled from self cervix. And this is a quote. Um, it's really important to get into the exploration and forget the goal. As tempting as it is to be orgasm focused, the treasure lies in who you become as you devote yourself to self-loving action. The way the, the work teaches us how to be with ourselves in a more self-aware and loving way, so that we can create the conditions for these epic experiences to open up for us. And I think this speaks to the evolution of courses at self cervix, which has reflected this deep love affair with oneself and one's body, you know, from disarming the cervix to self partnership to sovereign heart, and exploring the heart cervix axes. And no, it, there aren't five steps to developing, you know, a love affair with the God in you, you know that you're housing. I would love to hear a little bit about the evolution of course, offerings and how I'm, I'm just assuming that this is reflecting your own evolution of realizations that your cervix has taught you.
Olivia: Yes, exactly. Um, so I think when I started, you know, I just do, I had no idea, like ignorance is bliss. Mm. Yes. I just, like, we had like 1600 people in this Facebook event when I started right at the very first beginning. And I knew absolutely nothing. Right. And I was like, Hey, we're gonna do, we're just gonna stimulate our cervixes for 21 days and just see what happens,
Rahi: That's wild to think that you had a 21 day of like, just let's go
Olivia: It's very
Rahi: Much my all, yeah, yeah. Just to jump right in. Let's
Olivia: Do this. And then like,
Rahi: No. Right, right, right.
Olivia: Um, so, so then I created this program called initiation, which was just slowing it all right down, and let's just build a mental emotional connection with this entity, the spirit of our cervixes, you know, the, the, the, the felt sense of it, you know, just with our minds. Um, and then at the very end, we're gonna do a first touch ritual. And it was all, you know, Ben Martin's work was very influential to me because it was one of the only bodies of work that was really teaching empowerment, because I saw that empowerment was one of the, the true reasons why we had ended up with these numb cervixes. Either our power was taken from us or we'd given it away. Mm. And so we had no other choice but to hold an armor intense and protect, and so mm-hmm.
Olivia: Mm. And then, so I worked with, with that material for, I don't know, four years. Mm. And main emphasis for me was just trying to create more sensitivity and space in my body and, and, and, and, and heal, you know, heal deep wounding that I was holding in my body. So that was a, that was the longest part of this work. And then when things started to open up, I really, and I got more sensitive. I started to get very much in touch with incredibly beautiful energetics. And that formed the method that has now become the cervical awakening method. Um, which now it's, it, you know, a huge part of that is an exploration of sexual energetics, which I see as the kind of the next frontier of where sex is going. That as we move collectively in a conversation away from, you know, Newtonian matter and like everything is, you know mm-hmm.
Olivia: And so then a lot of the work became how do we, how do we act? How do we allow these currents to flow mm-hmm.
Olivia: And so it was like, okay, now we are finding out how we can feel empowered in the sexual space, but this is also about relating and intimate relating mm-hmm.
Olivia: And I started seeing also this misalignment between what we can do in our birthing bodies, whether we're birthing this way or we're birthing this way mm-hmm.
Rahi: Like a, it's intense, it's
Olivia: Explosive, you know, it's like mm-hmm.
Rahi: Beautiful. Beautiful. Yeah. It does require that nervous system to be really sound and resourced and have a lot of agency. And also as we expand in our love consciousness and pleasure, like receptivity, it's gonna touch into those old wounds that is, you know, I mean, the armor's there for a reason, so it sounds like Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's there for a reason. And you know, I call it a joy ceiling or a pleasure ceiling that I find in clients, you know, they can only mm-hmm.
Rahi: And now you've gotten to a place where, you know, you're, you're inviting kind of a surrender into this vast portal, energetic and spiritual, just to make it more practical for a lot of our listeners. Like when we bring it back to initiation and release
Rahi: Some of the practices that are introduced, for example, you know, Suzanne, you know, really loves the exploration of feeling the finger with the cervix rather than just feeling the cervix with the finger to wake up those touch receptors of the cervix. Mm-hmm.
Olivia: Yeah. Well, I'm
Olivia: Mm. And I was like, I must be on my cervix, but I'm not really feeling anything. That makes sense. Then one day I was just kind of offroading, you know, like, Hmm, what's someone else's going on here? And I found my cervix right over to the left uhhuh, so it was on the left wall. And so, you know, there'd probably be a lot of, you know, my abdominal massage people saying, oh, you know, you can realign this, you can realign this, but mm-hmm. And I have done a little bit of work around that, but you know, I've, I've sort of surrendered into the fact that that's where my cervix just is, is, is, is resting. It's, that's what mm-hmm.
Olivia: So the, a really good place to start with your practice is, is working around the cervix and seeing how it feels around the cervix. Cause often the, the ligaments are the things that are tight mm-hmm.
Olivia: So, um, so, you know, squatting is good. And actually Suzanne, you know, she taught me years ago, you can actually, it's not very sexy, but you can, if you really need to, you can sit on the toilet, you can do it there, right. Cause of the, the body is positioned. You're just trying to shorten the torso. And to be honest, like I said, like you said, often so much of our armoring is way before we get to the cervix. Mm-hmm.
Olivia: I like to bring my mind into the space between my finger and the tissue. Mm-hmm.
Olivia: Mm. And then once you get to your cervix, I always say, there isn't a right way to, to touch or dma your cervix, just what is right for you. Mm-hmm.
Olivia: A consistent,
Rahi: That's, that's really fantastic. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. If you can just underscore that Olivia, cuz I think that's a really important, um, insight is the consistency of a pattern until mm-hmm. There's this brain felt sense connection mm-hmm. Of what's, of what your cervix is experiencing. It's kind of like a way of waking up those, those touch receptors.
Olivia: That's right. That's right. Mm-hmm.
Olivia: Let me breathe and relax a little bit more mm-hmm.
Olivia: So there's a little part of you that, that is, is feeling sad because you, you think it's repulsive. You know, like, what would you do to a little child who is feeling repulsive? You know, you'd be like, it's okay. You know, it's like I'm here. It's like, you know, it's hard for me to, but I'm breathing. I'm, I'm here with you. You know, I'm, you know, yeah. I love you. You know, it's sort of starting to have this new relationship with it. Mm-hmm.
Olivia: Um, yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. It's about, it's about, it's about trust. I, I always say, you know, your cervix just wants the same thing that you want
Olivia: You know, there's a lot of, we come into this work with so much ambition,
Rahi: Yeah. Yeah. You know, part of that, um, ambition and results-oriented kind of mentality or societal conditioning, I feel like, you know, what I really appreciate about a lot of your material is encouraging. I, I read somewhere on your site an encouragement of a 30 day clitoral orgasm fast. Right? Yeah. Because we're so trained to be stimulation and results oriented that a lot of times it is, it is relied on as a way to avoid actual armor or actual mm-hmm.
Olivia: I have to hide. Of
Rahi: Course. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Olivia: Gotta take your throw away. Right. You know, it could be really tough, but I'm, I'm saying 30 days when I did my first year, I think I would've had maybe four, four clitoral orgasms in that whole year, uhhuh. Um, and, and it was really hard mm-hmm.
Rahi: So Yes, yes, yes. Well, 30 days is enough to create a new pattern. It's great to kind of reship the focus. The KLI tours is not going anywhere. It's, it's, it's a time to create new neural pathways and to discover, you know, it's like if I'm already, if I'm always eating, you know, potato chips before a great, you know, homemade dinner, I'm not gonna enjoy the dinner. So it just kind of a 30 day fast is not that big of a deal. But I love, no, I love the emphasis.
Olivia: And, and in the advanced practice, you know, when you get really practiced at your internal world, actually, you know, you can actually use the clitoris as part of it. It actually, it actually has its own little current move between clitoris and cervix. So it's like mm-hmm.
Olivia: So yeah,
Rahi: Self cervix.com Go check it out. There's so many great courses and great material. There's like, you know, a section just on science, there's a section, oh, you know, I wanna say there's a free, um, uh, there's a couple of free material, but one is how to heal from, from leap procedures that can damage nerves and create scar tissue and, and certainly create, create armor and, um mm-hmm.
Olivia: Uh, there must
Rahi: Be safer ways.
Olivia: I mean, nothing is, it's very difficult for me to talk about this cuz I, I, I'm not a medical procedure PR practitioner and I know that this would be triggering for if you've got some listening. Got it. I wanna just offer an option because for in No, no way do I wanna take somebody's, I understand this is, can be a very scary situation. I think that the doctors tend to rush in and they tend to make it very scary. So then we are rushing in and actually it takes a very long time for these things to develop into something life-threatening a very long time. So I would, I say from myself, my personal, my personal opinion is, wait, there are alternative healing. There's an alternative. You can heal naturally. There is a lot out there on the website, on the, on the web right now about like, um, protocol for healing naturally.
Olivia: Mm. Um, so I would go down the, that road of like supplements and, and lowering stress levels, um, uh, before going into any, you know mm-hmm.
Olivia: Like keep trying to keep doing the healing work naturally cuz mm-hmm. Interestingly, I found a lot of people who end up developing, uh, cervical dysplasia, myself included, we'd had a lot of emotional trauma before that actually occurred. Mm-hmm. And so it, it, it seemed to be this Yeah. Like a reflection of something that had been going on emotionally hard stuff. Yeah. Um, that was manifesting in the uterus that was coming out and, and presenting at the, at the cervix. I see. And so the healing is Yeah. Releasing the stress, releasing the grief. Like there's a lot of, and a lot of, um, sub different kinds of supplements. So that would be where I'd start looking.
Rahi: Yeah. You know, that touches on the really important acknowledgement of how, I mean, we've talked about the heart cervix connection, but how profound the cervix really does respond to, to love, you know, whether it's with oneself, whether it's with the lover, like when it's like, it's almost like the cervix is attuned to the love energy and really responds and opens up to that love energy, whether it's from oneself or with a lover. Um, and I know that the, the, the acupuncture point of the cervix is the heart, isn't it?
Olivia: Mm-hmm. Yeah. I believe that it shares a channel mm-hmm.
Rahi: No, that's, it's, I mean that really, I think that that that succinctly, succinctly, uh, encapsulates it, you know, um, and I think it really reflects the, the work of self cervix and, and the courses you're now offering. You know, it's really exciting, you know, that you're, that you're bringing this, I
Olivia: Wanna go back to basics as well. I'll go back to basics cuz I do know that, like, that is a, that is a next level conversation, so mm-hmm. We'll be starting the self-service experience, I think, you know, in a couple of months. And so we start right back at the beginning again, you know, and, you know, we really get practical and we really Yeah. You know, and then over time it just, sure, over time we start to pull in these more esoteric, um, ideas and, and mm-hmm.
Rahi: They're esoteric ideas, but they're also, you know, invitations to embody certain states of consciousness and energy that is a, that has a felt sense in the body once the body experiences that it knows. Yeah.
Olivia: And, and you know, to be honest, I think that I'm saying esoteric because I'm still, I'm still very aware that this isn't necessarily respected by mainstream science. So like, I don't find it esoteric at all. Like if you start going into like quantum theory, it, you know, it, it actually, you can find a lot of this based in science, but I know mm-hmm.
Rahi: I, this is cool.
Olivia: Started this possibility that we can move sexual energy through magnetics, through electromagnetic fields is like Yeah. Tring my mind out.
Rahi: Amazing. Yeah. That's so, so thrilling and exciting. I love, I love that you're, you're really, you're really, you're really following where the energy is taking you. And I think that's just, yeah. Amazing. That's so wonderful. Um, yeah. So Olivia, before we close off, I just wanna mention the Cervical Orgasm Research Project is collecting data on the experiences of cervical orgasms because no one else is doing it. I am imagining it just must be amazing, all of the, the firsthand experiences that people are sharing about their cervical orgasms. Um, but you are like collecting, you're collecting data on people's experiences of that.
Olivia: Yeah. Yeah. And actually, your question to me was really interesting cause I, it, I'd like to talk to you after this about potential other questions, but, uh, yeah, it's been, it's been very validating having so many people write in and share their experience because, you know, one hand, the medical world will say the cervical orgasm doesn't exist. Hmm. So it's, it's very validating to have all of these, these Yes. Testimonies, and the testimonies range from more physical emotion, physical experiences all the way through to quite psychedelic experiences, you know, seeing lights and, you know, going through tunnels and, you know, so it's, wow. Wow. It is a range. And I'll always say like, this cervical orgasm is, is a spectrum. Mm-hmm.
Olivia: Yes. So, so that also feels very validating to me. Yes. So I think that there's more that I can do in terms of asking, you know, what are, what are, what are other, you know, consistent things that have been present for you to have this experience. Um, um, beautiful. Yeah. There's more to be done there. There's, there's actually more to be done there and, yeah. Yeah. It's cool though. Cool. I, I really can't wait. Cool. The rea the reason I'm, I'm creating, I'm kind trying to get these experiences because one day maybe there'll be a book and then there'll be lots of people, not just me sharing about, you know Yeah. Their experiences.
Rahi: Yeah. I think that needs to happen. I mean, definitely. Yeah. It needs to happen. For our listeners, the site is self cervix.com. There's a lot of free info, there's a lot of brilliant courses.

Rahi: How is this interview landing in your body right now? Can you tune into what your cervix may be wanting or how it's feeling? Are you aware of any sexual experiences or medical procedures that may have stifled its voice or capacity to feel? Is there any numbness or armor wanting to be addressed or waiting to be acknowledged? Links to self cervix, scientific research involving the cervix and the Cervical Orgasm project are all in the show notes. Every part of our body deserves to be listened to, honored and loved fully and deeply. Until next time, take good care.
