Public Cervix Announcement: Let's talk about sex!

 

Sexual Wellness Seminar

6.30pm, 21st April, 2021

 

SUOGS first ever Sexual Wellness seminar will feature two speakers:

  • Dr Lesley Yee - Sexual Health physician for over 30 years
  • Dr Kate White - PhD

Women's, non-binary and trans sexual health, particularly emphasizing a positive fulfilling sex life, is unfortunately all too often a "taboo" topic within society and the medical community.

 

SUOGS is hoping to help break those barriers by opening the discussion on sexuality, the sexual response cycle, and sexual pleasure. Furthermore, challenges such as sexual pain and dissatisfaction are critically underrecognized as these are not routinely taught, even within OB/GYN training programs, leaving many people with clitorises and vaginas to question, "Am I normal?", or assume there is no help for painful sex.
