LOS ANGELES — Sex educator Ashley Manta will be joining the staff of adult retailer, the Pleasure Chest, as the new e-commerce manager. Manta will be managing the company’s web store, ThePleasureChest.com.
Manta boasts credentials as a sex- and pleasure-positive sexuality educator, certified consulting hypnotist and empowerment coach.
She worked for Planned Parenthood from 2012-2013, and is a volunteer educator for the Center for Positive Sexuality in Los Angeles.

When I come in to work I feel completely at home, surrounded by passionate people who genuinely care about the people that they are serving.”
“Education has always been one of our core tenets,” said Kristen Tribby, the Pleasure Chest’s director of creative development and strategy. “Between Ashley’s passion for information about sexuality and her business experience as an independent educator, it was a great fit.”
