We’re sharing loads of information about eating disorders, who gets them and why, we’re blowing some stereotypes out of the water, and talking about dos and don'ts if you’re supporting someone with an ED. Then we go on to talk more specifically about body image; how body bashing is a coping mechanism  and ways to develop self-worth and value independent of your body which is  a super important conversation regardless of whether or not you’ve experienced an eating disorder, so listen up!

In this week's episode I'm talking to Monica Karpinski, founder of The Femedic, a platform for discussing taboo topics in women's health.  We talk about the parallels between diet culture and the narratives around ‘successful sex’ and how both are systems of control and oppression. How the mainstream portrayal of sex as being predominantly about men’s pleasure takes away from the  control and ownership of female bodies - much like dieting does. How narratives around sex teach women to take up less space and not ask for the things we want or need, a lot like, you guessed it... diet culture. Monica and I also talk a bit about our own formative experiences and some of the weird ideas we had about sex as teenagers, and also some really embarrassing shit that happened to me when I was in high school. It’s actually mortifying.
