Power to the Pause presents episode #3 : Sex Drive and Menopause, the Midlife Effects on Desire and Libido
This podcast is to bring awareness to womens sex drive in her older years and to decrease the stigma around a woman’s desire for sexual intimacy.
It is important that we as women can discuss sex, sex drive and our anatomical parts without shame or embarrassment.
Feminine pleasure, the act of sex, including masturbation and orgasm (not just sex as defined as penetration) is important for women.
Research shows that it helps to lower blood pressure, improve immune responses and it can help to decrease the risk of heart disease, one of the most common issues women deal with after the age of 50.
Also, this podcast is not intended to negate those with sexual wounds.
Being vulnerable in the wake of sexual trauma can be hard for anyone (including my own history) but with self-compassion, safety and communication, it can prove to have lasting positive psychological effects, can continue to facilitate healing and can increase the emotional connections we have with ourselves and our partners .
Sexual pleasure belongs to women as much as it does to men. I dedicate this podcast to my fellow menopausal women, may we find ourselves as beautiful, supported, nurtured, sexual beings.
