Sex | the new series of Your Stories of Health

Person Before Patient 11/03/2020

A study has been released telling us that women aren’t enjoying sex as much as men. Research published in the BMC Public Health medical journal claims that 47.5% of women in the UK have poor sexual health, which in this study included emotional problems as well as physical ones, compared with just 17% of men.

#PersonBeforePatient found this to be a shocking fact. Is this the case for half of women in Amsterdam?

From Judy Blume and catching a glimpse of PlayBoy – to Netflix mass streaming ‘sex education’ & porn hub featuring in everyone’s google history somewhere and us all thinking we know how to clear browsing data!

It leaves with an impression that sex is part of everyone’s life, but is that really true. What is the true story, we told that having sex is healthy, but does that mean we all have to have it, and that we can, or have access to it.

Welcome to your stories of sexual health presented by Ruth Wilson and Carla van de Guchte.
