Everything You Need To Know About Women Sexual Health with Catriona Boffard
Dan and the team chat with Clinical Sexologist and Psychotherapist Catriona Boffard. She explains the importance of knowing your body and the importance of one's sexual health.
Catriona Boffard helps us understand 5 key things that women don't know about their sexual health and fulfillment.
What do you wish more men and women knew about their sexual health?
"Women need to have a trusted adult in their lives that they can ask about sexual health advice."
"At school we always make sex about risk and danger which is important but young women also need to take responsibilioty for their own sexual health. Women should carry a condom, have one in your wallet, they are cheaper than a takeaway coffee."
Catriona also suggests that abstinence programmes often don't actually work, in the US they have some of the highest rates of teen pregnancy as kids are given no information about sex, just encouraged to stay away from it.
Help your kids to understand what safe sex is rather than completely ban the idea.
