Through our diverse portfolio of activities we are raising awareness and influencing policy around women’s health and sexuality, with a focus on removing the stigma, isolation and frustration that women with chronic sexual pain often feel.

Our Aims and Objectives

Women4Real engages with a wide range of issues relating to women’s health and sexuality, but our primary aim is to make a positive difference to the millions of women in the UK who are currently unable to experience fulfilling sex lives and relationships due to sexual pain (as a result of conditions such as Vulvodynia, Vulval Pain, Chronic Thrush, Vaginismus and other health issues).

Whilst some superb organisations and charities exist to support women with these conditions (we work closely with several of them) we are focusing our energy and expertise on bringing about a wider shift not only in awareness, support and treatment options but in cultural attitudes and expectations around sexuality.

Our Work

Previously, we have worked collaboratively with experts and investors in the medical, charity and business sectors (including the NHS, The Vulval Pain Society and brands who share our values) to improve diagnosis, care and treatment outcomes.

Our portfolio also includes working closely with innovative individuals and arts projects which educate, inform and ignite debate in new and engaging ways (The Great Wall of Vagina, The Centrefold Project); media projects – books, feature writing, documentaries and short films (Painful Sex vs. ‘Normal’ Sex: The Differences Explained With Food and The Chilli Pepper Sex Club); workshops, webinars and public speaking on an international scale (directly to women with health issues and to medical professionals and the business community); developing new clinical, psychological, psychosexual and holistic approaches and treatments for chronic sexual pain.
