Just wrote this piece for Patient about my journey through #vulvodynia
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…
Wrote this for NetDoctor – What to do if you think you have recurrent thrush.

I’ve just written this piece for Netdoctor, with contributions from Sex Educator Alice Hoyle, and JoDivine MD Sam Evans (and daughter Milly): How to talk to your daughter about porn, sexting and what a healthy relationship looks like.
In this recent piece I wrote for Netdoctor, Mindfulness can do wonders for your sex life, Women4Real’s Sabine Tyrvainen makes the case for ‘open focus’ techniques in the bedroom, as part of mindfulness practice.
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.
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!
