    #7 - Lucy Wood on Eating Disorders, Our Cycles, Women's Intuition and the Importance of Taking a Step Back

    #7 - Lucy Wood on Eating Disorders, Our Cycles, Women's Intuition and the Importance of Taking a Step Back

    Charging up the show this week, Lucy Wood joins me in the studio to talk body confidence, body image and eating disorders.



    Lucy describes herself as an avid communicator and loves delving into deep conversations that attempt to deconstruct some of the intricate social constructs and restraints that we feel within society. 



    Lucy is the host of The Lucy Wood Podcast, where she gets to do exactly that! By having an array of interesting and expert guests on her show, Lucy opens listeners ears to the importance of slowing down, self-care and getting to know your body and its true rhythm.



    Lucy says the greatest super power that women behold, are our cycles and our intuition. Do you know yourself inside and out when it comes to your cycle? Are the men in your life in touch with their cycles and their feminine energy?



    Our bodies are sending us messages all the time! But we aren't always equipped with the tools to be able to pick these up, or know exactly what they mean. Lucy gives advice and tips to people looking to connect on a deeper level with themselves, their identities and their psyches, in order to live happier and healthier! And she demonstrates how any one can lead "life from a place of pure Juicy AF pleasure".



    Listen in, connect, get in flow...

    #6 - Lucy Lube Co-Founder Claire Colclough on Sex Positivity For Women, Her Slippery Wet Personal Lubricant Start-Up and the Dreaded Vaginal Dryness

    #6 - Lucy Lube Co-Founder Claire Colclough on Sex Positivity For Women, Her Slippery Wet Personal Lubricant Start-Up and the Dreaded Vaginal Dryness

    Charging up the show this week, Claire Colclough, co-founder of Australia’s newest personal lubricant brand Lucy Lube, joins Anna in the studio to discuss all things that slip’n’slide and to find out the inspiration behind this amazing feminist start-up that she runs - all the while cramming in her full-time corporate job in Melbourne and oh yeah... life!



    Claire is an advocate for great sexual health and is passionate about reducing the shame and stigma felt by women in the pursuit of sexual wellness. She is presenting a virtual interactive workshop in collaboration with the Vulva Dialogues on Thursday 18th of November 2021 - see details HERE to attend.



    Lubricant for women is key to excellent sexual health and fantastic sexual pleasure. With vaginal dryness such a common problem today, roughly 17% of women in Australia will experience it, and this number increases to 43% of women in the first six months postpartum and 50% of perimenopausal women. A lack of lubrication can lead to vaginal burning and irritation and, most commonly, painful sex and the dreaded thrush!



    A guaranteed passion and pleasure blocker!



    So Lucy Lube helps women with exploration in the bedroom so that we can have lovely, new or improved sexual experiences in solo play or with a partner.



    Enough splashing around, let’s get messy... Stay charged!



    Claire has also been kind enough to offer a massive 25% OFF LUCY LUBE with discount code 'AWOMANCHARGED' - SHOP HERE

    #5 - Sex Therapist Vanessa Tarfon on Renovating Your Body, Everything You Should Have Learned and Reclaiming Your Best Sex Life

    #5 - Sex Therapist Vanessa Tarfon on Renovating Your Body, Everything You Should Have Learned and Reclaiming Your Best Sex Life

    Charging up this week, Anna talks to Vanessa Tarfon, a Qualified Sex Therapist and Founder of Authentic Awareness, who helps busy, tired mums who feel anxious, guilty and embarrassed by their missing sexual identity and desire.



    But Vanessa is also a sleep-deprived mum of two young boys, who is exactly like us and is not afraid nor does she feel vulnerable to show that and to talk about that with clients and with other women.



    Listen in as she talks frankly about the many personal, relatable, confusing, laughable and sad moments mothers feel before, during and after becoming a mummy. Be fascinated as Vanessa explores how something as simple as touch, can invoke such terrible and triggering feelings for women post-birth.



    Was this you?



    Vanessa is truly paving the way for women’s sex positivity for modern women. We didn’t get enough of this growing up, from education or from our parents. She is addressing “everything we should have learned”.



    We're renovating our mother-fucking bodies... Literally!



    Join Anna as she tries to crack open her intensely interesting and highly-informed mind when it comes to women and sensuality. Vanessa offers so many nuggets of gold and take aways for women that we know you will agree, can be put in to practice in our sex lives. Including her top tips for rekindling the sensual relationship you have with yourself through her course Mama's Sensual Safari.

    #4 - Keesha Booth, Talks PreBaby Bodies, Intentional Celibacy, Single Motherhood and Life With Fabulous Pussy Power!

    #4 - Keesha Booth, Talks PreBaby Bodies, Intentional Celibacy, Single Motherhood and Life With Fabulous Pussy Power!

    Charging up the show this week, Sexological Educator Keesha Booth joins Anna in the Studio. Keesha helps women and young people navigate sex education and their sexual awakening through education so they can become more confident and free when forming their sense of sexual selves.



    She is based in Townsville (North Queensland), where she is a single mother to Zion and Zan and teaches groups of tweens and teens about relationships, consent, porn, sex, gender expectations and all the in-between conversations young people are all thinking but critically - not discussing.



    Her experience of sexual assault when she was 9 and 12 has been her motivating driver in using sex positive education as a prevention model to relationship abuse & violence for young people. So now she is passionate about using pleasure centric principles into her Sex Education sessions and (self-professed), has fabulous pussy power!



    Ok so this will interest some of you... Keesha is now embarking on a new project to better affirm and empower single mothers. She wants to move away from the victimhood ideology that stands behind the term ‘single mother’ and to move from surviving to thriving and to empowerment. She’s starting local in Townsville but most definitely going National to keep your eyes out for this program in the future.



    During the episode. we discussed that Clementine Ford book ‘Fight Like A Girl’ which has been difficult to read, for both of us, as well as many other women, but which made us reassess many aspects of our lives with a new feminist lens.



    We discuss pre-baby body bounce backs and what that really means and how we really feel about them. And we discuss teenagers and how she deals with being seen as an “old 32 year old” by her students, keeping up with their Gen Z linguo to make sure she stays super “dripp”...?



    We do touch on sexual assault throughout this episode for any one who experiences trauma surrounding past sexual assault, please be aware of this and do seek help from 1800 RESPECT (that’s 1800 737 732) if you are concerned over your mental health and your trauma and would like to seek help.

    #3 - *Trigger Warning* The Mindful Doctor on Reporting Historical Child Sex Abuse, Sleeping Arrangements and Contraceptive Pill For Girls

    #3 - *Trigger Warning* The Mindful Doctor on Reporting Historical Child Sex Abuse, Sleeping Arrangements and Contraceptive Pill For Girls

    Charging up this week, Anna invites practising GP Gabrielle Staniforth, Founder of The Mindful Doctor on the show for some real perspective on Women's Health in 2021. We candidly discuss how women are presenting to her across the generations and how Gabby believes her care is important now but also "across a lifetime". 



    Gabby's account of life as a female GP in 2021, is a window into the psyche of women and girls in a new age: an age where talking about sexuality, gender, sexual pleasure and pain for women are acceptable. It is an age where there are medical professionals like Gabby who exist to encourage this new way of feeling, thinking, doing with regards to our bodies, our confidence, relationships and our health.



    And continuing with this will only have positive consequences for society and for women and girls navigating a vastly changing landscape in the digital age.



    Aside from her professional journey, her personal story is a tale of resilience, growth and success. Between nursing degrees, relocating across state boundaries, her husband's two cancer diagnoses, her medical degree and her 20 IVF cycles (no that's not a typo), Gabby shows great strength in self-acceptance and by placing realistic expectations upon herself on a daily basis.



    *TRIGGER WARNING*



    Now as Gabby navigates reporting historical sex abuse committed against her when she was a child, she lays bare her life, her struggles and her coping techniques for her patients to use and share as she continues her journey.



    Plus we also discuss the fun stuff! Do you and your partner still sleep in the same bed? Are you happy without having any sexual activity in your relationship? Will you be supportive when your 15 year old daughter asks for the contraceptive pill? There's nothing off limits in this episode...

    #2 - Arileigh Russell Fit on Bullying, The Male Gaze And Those Caravan Years - It's Project Unf*ck Yourself!

    #2 - Arileigh Russell Fit on Bullying, The Male Gaze And Those Caravan Years - It's Project Unf*ck Yourself!

    Anna charges up her new podcast by talking with Arileigh Russell: a Women's Lifestyle & Transformation Coach and Model who educates & empowers women by helping them transform their fitness and bodies with her course, completed by hundreds of women - Project Unf*ck Yourself.

    But Ari's origins weren't always so empowering or glamorous. Growing up the only girl in a family of strict gender stereotypes, living below the poverty line in a caravan and tent for over a year, Ari grabbed success by the boobs when she started her own Lifestyle & Fitness Transformation business. She now uses those terrible times as motivation and drive in her daily life and business. Her experiences of bullying, slut-shaming and misogyny are sure to relate to any woman growing up in the 21st century and we are so thankful to her for candidly sharing her story.

    Listen in as she and Anna discuss how Ari changed her personal circumstances by daring to start up her business at just 18 years old in the male-dominated fitness and strength conditioning industry. Now by monetising the male gaze, her expertise and knowledge, she complements her income with OnlyFans, runs Project Unf*ck Yourself as well as pop-up education nights for women, and advocates that platforms like this are giving women the chance to truly own their own bodies.

Keightem ,

What fun!

Candid, interesting and revealing in more ways than one ;)

Salbra ,

A must listen.

This is a must listen. Such important conversations that Anna is leading. Does it seem strange to say I think of Anna in my bedroom?

Vanessa_AA21 ,

Informative and fun

Loved the first Podcast! Anna has a real talent at being informative, easy to understand and making female sexuality fun to learn about. I think this is a really important podcast for women to listen to and re-learn everything they should have been taught when they were younger.
