Women What Whistle

This podcast is about not falling in line or fading away. Stories of bravery, accounts of resilience and even tales of sheer bloody-mindedness. It’s about finding our voice, and sometimes our brave, through the stories of other women who’ve had to find theirs.

Sex therapist and author Emma Waring joins me for an episode in which we pull back the covers on our sex lives. It is an area of life that we are often uncomfortable talking about and yet something that is so vital to our health and wellbeing, not to mention our relationships.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The value of sex and intimacy
  • Dealing with previous sexual trauma
  • Loss of libido and ways we can build it up
  • Managing children at home, exhaustion and a busy work life
  • Common barriers to intimacy – physical / psychological
  • Sex drive and when they don’t match
  • Practical tips on how to move from the place of sexual negativity, through to sexual positivity
  • Orgasms, how they work for women 
  • Hollywood and porn, how we have been misguided by media 
  • What is good sex? What is enough sex? What are we looking to achieve?
