Sacred Sex. Sacred Food. Divine Feminine. What does it all mean?! The Sensual Foodist is alive and well and she has many names: Lana Shay, Lana Baumgartner, and the latest reveal… Ava Genna.
May 9, 2016 was the last post on SensualFoodist.com 🙂 It’s been a few years!
This is an incredibly vulnerable message, as I’m going to announce a highly controversial topic. What’s more important is that you’re in for a surprise…a good one! I’ve been hiding in a cave (actually behind my laptop screen) for quite some time now, and haven’t been sharing on SensualFoodist.com, LanaShay.com, or PureKambo.com However, this interview just went live this week on PsychedelicTimes.com. Here’s why I’ve been MIA: I’ve been writing a book!…
I want to begin by saying thank you! If you’re reading this via email, you’ve stuck with me during this lull! I’ve been working on a book, that will be available so very soon! Let’s just dive right back in. I have a couple questions for you.

connected in unexpected ways?
Imagine Making Sensual Love in the Kitchen
while growing personally and as a couple?
How would your life change if your
dried-up old, non-existent sex life was
suddenly wild, wet and rejuvenated again?

for you was actually just the training ground for the
conscious love and Soulful sex you were really
meant to have in your life!…
What’s the most excited you’ve ever been while eating? Think of that time. Could you barely get the food in your mouth fast enough, or were you taking all of your sweet time to savor every bite because you just didn’t want to finish? Was it the greatest moment ever? Have you ever had one of these with food?
At Burning Man-just a few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to spend time with a few of my mastermind sisters (a group of incredible entrepreneurs who support each other in current endeavors). Joe and I were sitting, having tea-at the Full Circle Tea House, and I saw one of my girlfriends pop her head in. I rushed over to hug her and noticed that all of my mastermind sisters were in less than a 10
foot radius at that moment.…
There isn’t much ambiguity in the title, right? Sexting is just text messages with sexually explicit content-photos, videos, or simply just sexual text; if for some reason you didn’t already know. I may have been years behind when I first learned this word, since I’d been doing it without a label for years. Who doesn’t send sexy photos to their lover? I think it’s a mandatory piece of any healthy relationship. If your opinion differs, I’d love to hear about it. This topic always sparks my interest. This article isn’t really about how I sext my husband. It’s more about how our sexting has evolved and some unique elements of it.
This idea came to my attention the other night when Joe, my husband and I were at CIIS (California Institute of Integral Studies) the other night for a presentation on psychedelics.…
This isn’t a usual post. No rants about food, no juicy relationship practices. This is simply a
AND a very important one at that. Wednesday, March 18th is upon us. What does this mean? Irresistible Sensuality is what it means! The lovely Bethanne Wanamaker, (AKA the Edible Goddess) is going to enlighten us with her incredible knowledge of living life to the fullest. Read the following announcement she made on facebook, just today:
“Friends! I’m being interviewed tomorrow on a webinar by my dear friend Lana Baumgartner (aka Sensual Foodist) called “3 Ways to Unleash Your Irresistible Sensuality” ~ Ooooh la la!
I’ll share my wisdom on optimal living at its finest, my perspective on “having it all” + unleashing your wild beautiful natural side.
I sure did! It was a nice heaping scoop of “sensual fudge-y love sauce.” But, I know what you’re thinking. This article is late. Valentine’s Day is old news! Although I do have a question for you, specifically about this holiday.
What comes to mind when you think of V-day? Roses? Kisses? Chocolate?!
This food from the Gods is not something to be taken lightly. When I eat chocolate, it has to be the kind that uplifts my soul and pleases my body in every way (especially if I’m having it on an occasion that is deemed the day for lovers). You didn’t think chocolate had these abilities, did you? Furthermore-here is a Sensual Foodist fact: Everyday is a good day for chocolate.…
How many years in a row have you made the same new year’s resolution? If you’re making the same resolution because you haven’t gotten what you were shooting for, I have a challenge for you. It can’t hurt to have an additional new year’s intention.
Do you and your lover speak the same food language? Can you whip up a delicious meal in the kitchen together? Do you generally choose the same item on a menu at a restaurant? Do you come home from the grocery store with all of the divine, colorful produce that your lover wanted (without them even having to ask for it)? Speaking the same food language means that you can choose and chew together harmoniously.…
Just a few weeks ago, I was interviewed by Divine Kika. She’s a good friend, and incredible Tantra teacher based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
If you missed it, no worries, because I posted a taste below, and the full interview can be seen on youtube. The last 15 minutes or so of the video is our interview. This a full intro to the Sensual Foodist! I’m honored to have been interviewed by Kika, as her work is inspiring and I think it’s just what we need to create a more loving, fulfilling life. It wasn’t too long ago that Joe and I attended Kika’s kissing workshop, and we had so much fun I had to share this tantric kissing and sensual food practice.…
Even though I totally love magazines, I currently do not receive any subscriptions. What’s perfect is the opportunity I have to read my favorite magazines every time I travel. They are conveniently tucked right in the seat back pocket in front of me. I truly love inflight magazines. They usually have unique articles about global cuisine, and exotic destinations-two things I can’t get enough of.
On our way to Bali this past summer, the words, “sex” and “drugs” caught my attention on the bottom right corner of United’s Hemispheres magazine. I don’t see these two words often while browsing these publications, so I had to read on (wouldn’t you)?
After I read the very short two paragraph blurb, I nudged my husband Joe and gave him an enthusiastic look while I pointed to the article.…
Last weekend, my husband, Joe and I participated in a Tantric kissing workshop led by the highly skilled Divine Kika. Who could resist a beautiful Brazilian Goddess leading you through intimate practices with your beloved? Well, Joe and I couldn’t. One look at the workshop through a Facebook event page had us hooked. First, I will let you know that it was absolutely wonderful and certainly one of the best date nights that we’ve ever had. It was unique, we were in the company of conscious couples, and we were learning something new — learning something that would enhance our relationship; everything about it was just perfect.
I’d love for you to get a vision of the setting for this perfect evening.…
