In this episode, Hannah is joined by Becky Lund-Harket, who is the Head of Public Engagement and a workshop facilitator at the School of Sexuality Education as well as the founder of the Candid Collective. Becky discusses why people feel dissatisfaction in sexual and romantic relationships (spoiler: it's because of poor communication!) and gets into why we find communication so difficult, as well as talking about some good and bad examples from TV. Becky and Hannah talk about the orgasm gap, how sex ed can help to close that gap, and why orgasms shouldn't be the main focus of pleasure. Finally, Hannah and Becky discuss the double standards involved with nudes and sexting.
