    BEST OF—12 week rule

    The answer is more often than not, miscarriage.

    The case against hookup sex with Hannah Ferguson

    The case against hookup sex with Hannah Ferguson

    Swipe left, swipe right, match, meet, hook up, repeat. We all know the dating dance, but is it really serving us as women?

    Enter Hannah Ferguson, the 25-year-old media queen who isn’t afraid to tell us how it is.  

    When Hannah was in her late teens and dating for the first time, Tinder ruled the scene and sex was available at the swipe of a finger. But a string of sub-par experiences left her wondering if hookup culture is selling women a lie. Have we come to expect scraps because that's all that's on offer? And how can we push back and have the sex and relationships we deserve? 

    Featured in this episode: 

    Hannah Ferguson, CEO of Cheek Media Co. and author of Bite Back

    Hey Yumi! I'm tired of doing it all

    Hey Yumi! I'm tired of doing it all

    Women bear the load of most of the invisible (thankless) work in a household. And that shit gets heavy.  

    School lunches, laundry, dentist appointments, shopping, snot-wiping, cleaning, care-giving – and don’t forget to get those 10k steps in while you’re at it! 

    We're exhausted just thinking about it.  

    Yumi dishes out advice on how to even out the mental load and take the weight off your shoulders.  

    If you’ve got a snag in your life that you just can’t figure out, let us take on the burden! Send an audio note to ladies@abc.net.au

    Horny women

    Horny women

    What if your appetite for sex was insatiable? Would you love to be boning every day, multiple times a day?  

    There's this idea that it's men that are always lusting after sex. But guess what? Women can be horn dogs too! But that horniness often comes with the label "slutty". 

    Yumi Stynes chats to women who are relishing their pleasure and enjoying plenty of orgasms while they’re at it.

    Hey Yumi! Am I a bad mum?

    Hey Yumi! Am I a bad mum?

    When you’re stuck in the daily grind of working-mum life, sometimes it can be hard not to feel like a shitty mum.  

    School lunches, getting them dressed (FFS), raising good humans, endless meetings – it's exhausting and soul-destroying. 

    Yumi has some advice to ease the mum-guilt, when your heart is being yanked in opposite directions and backing away from work isn’t an option.  

    If you’ve got a problem that not even your girl gang can help you solve, let us take on the burden! Send an audio note to ladies@abc.net.au
