Even more striking, 82% of women in a recent survey felt cooler, stronger, and sexier than they ever expected at this age—so why aren’t advertisers targeting them?

    Why We Need Adult Sex Ed with Dr. Kelly Casperson

    Why We Need Adult Sex Ed with Dr. Kelly Casperson

    For many women who’ve never had an orgasm, it’s easy to feel like there’s something wrong or that they’re broken, a sentiment shared by many of Dr. Kelly Casperson’s patients. However, as urologist and star podcaster Dr. Casperson explains in our latest episode, the issue isn’t with women—it’s our lack of good sex education. This lack hinders women’s ability to experience pleasure, which is why over 10% of women report never having had an orgasm. This issue is particularly pronounced in midlife, where menopause and societal stigmas leave many women feeling abandoned in their sexuality.
    Join us as Erin and Dr. Casperson guide you through your own adult sex ed class, busting myths about female sexuality, diving into hormonal balance, discussing how to express your sexual needs, and showing you how to reclaim your sexual health and well-being at any age.

    Debunking myths and misconceptions about female health, libido, and sexuality, which are often understudied and not discussed.How tuning into your inner voice can lead to a more passionate, truthful life.Unlocking the secrets of estrogen and testosterone for better sex and overall health.The impact of unrealistic media portrayals of sex on women’s self-perception and satisfaction.How open conversations about sex can boost pleasure, connection, and intimacy.Why we need a sex education revolution to replace porn as a go-to resource, helping close the orgasm gap for mutual pleasure.How sex toys can help you discover what you really want and what gives you pleasure.

    Read the paper discussed in the episode The heteronormative theory of low sexual desire in women partnered with men.

    OUR GUEST: Dr. Kelly Casperson is a certified urologist, surgeon entrepreneur, Tedx speaker, author, and top international podcaster with "You Are Not Broken." Her book, "You Are Not Broken: Stop "Should-ing" All Over Your Sex Life" is an Amazon best seller. She has a dynamic speaking presence and is proud to speak on female pelvic health, sexual wellness, and genitourinary symptoms of menopause to educate and empower individuals to take control of their bodies and health care options.
