Breast cancer & sexuality with Prof Elna McIntosh - S1E5

October is breast cancer, so Catriona discusses a topic we rarely speak about in relation to this – sexuality. Prof Elna McIntosh, a clinical sexologist and a woman who has beaten breast cancer twice, speaks about everything from nipple tattoos and body image to self-pleasure and the need for early detection. Catriona and Elna also discuss using and accessing other resources to bring the experience of pleasure back into one’s life.

Vaginismus with Lisa Mackenzie from the Vaginismus Network - S1E4

Vaginismus is not something we get taught about during sex ed. Yet this female sexual pain condition is actually rather common, with statistics showing us that somewhere in the range of 1-17% of women globally are struggling with it. It’s something I work extensively with in my practice. I’m joined this week by Lisa from The Vaginismus Network, to talk about her own personal experience of vaginismus, as well as why her and Kat started the platform.

You can reach out to Lisa and the team at The Vaginismus Network via Instagram @thevagnetwork or on their website thevaginismusnetwork.com
