My mission is to empower women to live their best love lives. Combining the power of mind-work, body-science and relationships, I joyously break down the societal barriers that are keeping us from living our best intimate lives.
Whether you are young or past menopause, single or in a long-term bond, it is never too late or too early to realize YOU ARE NOT BROKEN. With humor, candor and ease, I break down the stories that we have been told about being sexual beings, to help us play, explore, and normalize our lives. Nothing in this podcast is personal medical advice, of course.

She manages her successful group practice, publishes widely in her field and creates national FPMRS quality standards. For years, she has heard her patients regret not knowing more about their bladder function and wishing this information was easier to find outside of a doctor’s office.

theoutdoortraveller ,

A great listen - thank you!

A great listen / thank you!

tardy64 ,

Very informative

As a menopausal woman with a complete hysterectomy , I appreciate all this information. As my hysterectomy was required quite quickly, because of a prolapse, I have regrets and still some questions. For instance, what are your thoughts on pelvic muscle trainers, like Pelviline. Or how do you keep your pelvic floor in shape. What exercises should I do? Etc. Again thanks for all your help

Worst service eve ,

Wonderful podcast!

Dr. Casperson gives factual educational info about sex in an easy-going way which makes it feel like you are hearing it from a friend. I’m a urologist in Canada and I am impressed with her ability to relay an appropriate amount of medical information without making it sound too medical! Keep up the great work Kelly :) a must-listen for sure!
