    The Messy Side of Masturbation with Poppy Lepora

    In this episode, Hannah is joined by Poppy Lepora, who is the founder of the independent sex toy boutique Self & More and a masturbation enthusiast. Poppy discusses discovering self-pleasure and we talk about lockdown masturbation habits (with data!). She and Hannah talk about the stigma around masturbation if you're in a relationship and really get into the theme of "messy masturbation" - the real, dirty, horny reality of wanking. Finally, Hannah and Poppy discuss what it's like running a sex-positive business using Instagram as a main platform and the difficulties with their sex-negative policies, AND, of course, Poppy gives us a whole bunch of sex toy recommendations.

    MORE ABOUT POPPY LEPORA
    Poppy Scarlett Lepora is the owner of Self & More sex toy boutique, a pleasure educator and female masturbation activist (aka a proud w****r). She launched Self & More because she was frustrated by the way that many sex toy retailers viewed female pleasure through the male gaze. She believes that shopping for sex toys should be as simple and shame-free as shopping for any other kind of self care items.

    Poppy is a polyamorous, bisexual woman who’s dedicated to helping people to speak
    more honestly about their sexual desires and dismantling the stigma that still surrounds masturbation in the UK.

AliceKH ,

One of my favourite podcasts!

Although I’m probably not the target audience (I’m a 45 year old straight, cis, married woman) I absolutely love this podcast! It’s so informative and interesting. Hannah is very open, frank and never judgemental. She has fascinating guests who cover a wide range of subjects. She is a great interviewer who lets the guests have room to speak, never talking over them and asking the questions that we really want the answers to!
This podcast has entertained me, challenged my views and always leaves me feeling uplifted. Fab!
