The Dick Effect is a podcast that aims to decode the language of our society.
Our everyday language is peppered with phrases that we don't think about before using. Whether it's men to women, women to women, men to men, people to people, there are dick things that we say to each other. We want to talk about this language, look at where it comes from and ask you all, just take a second to think about what it means to you before you use it again.
Women swearing is so unladylike!
Boys will be boys!
Ah give us a smile love!
I'm not like other girls!
You'll feel different when it's your own!
Grow some balls man!
Are you on your period or something?
Girls with tattoos are sluts!
She's just a prick tease!
What were you wearing?

    Are you a virgin?

    Are you a virgin?

    Women, protect your virginity! Men, get rid of it as quick as you can!
    How can we possibly encourage young people to create healthy, consensual and mutually satisfying relationships when we treat their journey into sexuality with such opposing views?
    Virginity is a social construct, so why do we care so much about it?
    Join us on our quest to change our society by really thinking about the normalised language we use each day!

    Weight loss, kindness and consistency with Martyna Baker

    Weight loss, kindness and consistency with Martyna Baker

    Our next special guest is the amazing (and very funny) Martyna Baker who lost 100lbs in 2020. She tells us about her weight loss journey, and how being kind to herself and eating the foods that she enjoys was the key to feeling more comfortable in her body. Abigail and Megan talk about their experiences with weight loss too and we discuss the mean girl in our head who won't shut the F up!
    Join us as we unpack some of the dickish things that people say to overweight people, people who are trying to lose weight and people who have lost weight.
    Such as 'But you've got such a pretty face' 'Are you sure you should be eating that' 'Don't lose your curves' The list goes on and on.
    Stop commenting on other people's bodies, big or small unless you are invited people.
    Make sure you follow Martyna - on Instagram & You Tube
