Like many women, Pauline McCarthy vividly remembers the first time she had her menstrual period.
In fact, the first time it happened – she thought she was dying! Because she didn’t receive much in the way of sex education as a child, she now finds herself joyfully compelled to educate others in the realities of the female body.
And one of the realities of female biology is menopause – which is exactly what is discussed in this always-informative-and-frequently-humorous interview with the fabulously funny Pauline McCarthy.
Today’s video is a true gem – for example, here’s just a peek at what Pauline and I discuss:
How staying hydrated is an excellent way to keep your “lady bits” lubricated – plus, she talks about the different lubes she’s found helpful.
Why your biggest “sex organ” is the brain.
Pauline’s clever, practical advice for talking about menopause and sex with your partner or doctor – even if you’re embarrassed about those subjects!
How to manage the effects of menopause – like hot flashes and insomnia.
Pauline is the host of the Menopause Morph Podcast, available on iTunes and Stitcher Radio. She also has a fun one-woman stage show: The Pearls of Pauline – Pearls of Wisdom, Compassion & Joy for Menopausal Women, which she has performed in the UK, the USA, and in Iceland – where she currently resides.
Pauline also hosts a yearly retreat in Iceland, specifically for menopausal women to help them cool down and feel better.
