Disclaimer: This episode is strictly for the ladies (and probably NOT one to listen to with the kids around). I welcome back Dr. Kelly Casperson (urologist, podcaster). Our last chat was so eye-opening that it prompted many MORE questions — specifically, about sex. So today, I ask the doctor your uncomfortable and awkward questions — in regard to sex and the anatomy — so you don’t have to!
You’ll find out:
- A review of the female anatomy
- Why sex might be painful (for women)?

- Where to start if you have zero libido
- Why desire for sex will come if you work on the sex

- Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about squirting
- Why/why not you orgasm
- Why we have to expand the paradigm of what heterosexual sex is
- Thoughts on vaginal tightening to enhance sexual pleasure
- When you might need a sex therapist and where to find one
- How to change your mindset on sex (issues)
- Why hormone replacement therapy may not help your sex life
- What if both partners don’t seem to mind their sex life is lacking?
- Is it bad if your sex drive is through the roof and you can never get enough?
- Why does orgasm happen in only certain positions (for some people)?
- Why the smell of the vagina/vulva changes after menopause
