From ‘ouch’ to ‘oooooh’
In advance of the publication of my book, The Chilli Pepper Sex Club, I’ve written a piece for Netdoctor about my journey through vulvodynia. More media to follow and I’ll be running a series of workshops (in London and Brighton) to support all aspects of women’s health, including ‘Mindfulness for sexual wellbeing’. Please sign up to the Women4Real database (bottom of homepage) for more info – full details available soon. - Sally, Creative Director, Women4Real
