Sensuali chatted with coach April Maria aka Venus Libido, known for her sex education and intimacy coaching.

Sensuali chatted with Belle Lauralei, the all round sensualist and lover of erotica. We spoke about how supporting men and the masculine is integral to achieving a harmonious society, the struggle of living in a mind-led world that disconnects us from our bodies, and how more women need to view femininity as a power rather than a weakness.
We had a wonderful chat with Mistress Sevvven, the professional dominatrix who specialises in FemDom sessions in London. We spoke about her carnal, non-traditional approach, the sense of safety and control that BDSM provides, and the never ending fight to unlearn conditioned feminine behaviour as a domme.
Sensuali chatted to The Tantric Woman, aka Jo, the sex coach and tantric bodyworker based in London. We talked about helping men connect with their body rather than their mind, self-sourcing our own pleasure, and how we can shift societal attitudes towards sensuality and away from derogatory sex.
Sensuali chatted to The Queer Sensualist, aka Oli Lipski, who provides sensual intimacy coaching through the lens of queer theory and sensual embodiment.

Sensuali chatted to the London-based artist making queer erotic photography, Imogen Cleverley.

Sensuali chatted with Agent Ida von Schmidt, the Disciplinarian Dominatrix with a passion for role play and traditional corporal punishment. We discuss her collection of punishment implements, some common misconceptions about Dommes, and BDSM as a form of therapy.
Sensuali had a conversation with Open Relating, aka, Roy Graff, the polyamorous relationship coach. We spoke about his goal to help people relate to one another out of love rather than fear, the male struggle to ask for physical affection from a parter, and the socialisation that has made society terrified of polyamory.
