Episode 064 – Sex Beyond Biology

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 064 – Sex Beyond Biology

Tonight I talk about schools only teaching the technical facts about sex leaves the humanity and fun of sex education being left to pornography.  I discuss that girls are being expected to do things far more extreme than they are comfortable with, and boys don’t learn how to make sex pleasurable for both partners.

Episode 062 – Hands Up, Who’s Struggling?

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 062 – Hands Up, Who’s Struggling?

In tonight’s episode I talk about how important it is that we talk about it when we’re finding it hard.  How sharing your fears and vulnerabilities will ensure we don’t feel alone and can welcome the help we need from others around us, and how we weren’t supposed to go through the stress and worry of child rearing alone.
