Today on the show, I'll be sharing my take on Tik-Tok, answering your questions about masturbation and why herpes is still getting a bad rep even though they’re not that big a deal. Trust me, I’m a doctor...of philosophy, but still, trust me on this! I’ll also be sharing my interview with my neighbour from the south and sexual health educator, Jackie Hoshing, and we’ll be talking about sex ed in Canada versus the US and how they measure up.
