Must listen

I learn so much from Ari and her incredible guests!!

Perfect for a Healing, Learning and Growing young Fairy✨🧚🏾‍♂️

I don’t even know where to begin! I was never taught proper sex education. Never knew how to have conversation around it. Burlesque found me and it felt like I’d found a soulmate! That’s how I found this podcast! I love everything about this podcast! The freeness, the love, the education, space for a traumatic childhood that lacked this type of leadership and mentorship to find healing. Thank you Elle! Your words meet my ears eager for more every time! Your guests are Devine beings and you seek all the info I crave! Much love to you!
