S2 Episode Seven: Let’s talk about sex
In this episode we focus on women’s awareness of their sensuality and their right to enjoy sex and pleasure (as adults). We cover all elements of sexual health from physical, emotional to mental and social aspects. We also delve into the culture and societal factors that prevent us from lying back and enjoying sex.
We consider this conversation to be informative, positive and nurturing but we acknowledge that there may be those who find this difficult in parts. Our priority is to ensure we as women care for our well-being and there are resources linked to this episode and on our website, sfgpod.com, to encourage and support us all.
Gender is traditionally used to describe the characteristics of women and men that are socially constructed, while sex refers to those that are biologically determined. We will refer to gender as women throughout this conversation but recognise that this is not how everyone may wish to identify.
