Speaking at the Femedic launch on uncovering the secrecy, shame and stereotypes surrounding women’s sexual health

Great to meet so many inspiring women at the launch of the Femedic, a new website that is determined to ‘normalise women’s health taboos’.

Most online editorial about sexual health just tweaks the visible tip of the topic rather than delving deeper. The Femedic is fast becoming a trusted source of clear and comprehensive information that not only addresses symptoms and treatments, but also empowers women to better understand their bodies, the health system and the impact that cultural and lifestyle factors have on their health decisions.

I spoke on ‘Uncovering the secrecy, shame and stereotypes surrounding women’s sexual health’.  So much to say! Highlights in video clip coming soon…

From ‘ouch’ to ‘ooooh’

In advance of the publication of my book, The Chilli Pepper Sex Club, I’ve written a piece for Netdoctor about my journey through vulvodynia. More media to follow and I’ll be running a series of workshops (in London and Brighton) to support all aspects of women’s health, including ‘Mindfulness for sexual wellbeing’. Please sign up to the Women4Real database for more info – full details available soon.

Tackling misogyny in music

Brilliant piece on the Funny Women site by Lily Phillips of The Ruby Darlings, about misogyny in music, a topic she’s tackled ‘head on’ in her fabulous new comedy music video. We’re excited to be co-writing a show with Lily all about sexual health, for Brighton Fringe 2017 – watch this space!

‘The Ruby Darlings’ – brilliant feminist comedy with a vagina based agenda

I spent a fabulous evening at Brighton’s Komedia last night (5th June 2016) in the company of the mightily talented Ruby Darlings. Perfectly pitched feminism – funny, clever, sexy, cool. If you’ve got a vagina – or know someone who has – I urge you to give them a google and book the best night out you’ve had in yonks!
