Anniki Sommerville and Lisa Williams talk about vulvas: cervical screenings, gynae cancer, thrush and nicknames for ‘vulva’. They set up a folk duo and do an impromptu song about incontinence, while Lisa interviews the ever-calm and ever-clever Dr Anita Mitra, AKA Gynae Geek about The Eve Appeal's Get Lippy campaign, and gynae conditions, the taboos around women's health, and the worrying rise in labiaplasty (cosmetic surgery to the vulva) . This series of the Hotbed is kindly sponsored by Mooncup, the original reusable silicone menstrual cup. Go to mooncup.co.uk before the end of June 2020 and use the code HOTBED for a 10% discount. Recorded at Acast, produced by Alex Graham. [Image of Dr Anita Mitra kindly supplied by The Eve Appeal.
