In my personal life, my many of my dear friends are sex positive thought leaders. This is a group of incredibly sexy, powerful, sexually embodied humans who identify as women. Despite all of our strength and knowledge, many of us were completely blind-sided by menopause. Here are just a few symptoms: decrease clitoral sensitivity (oh, fuck no), brain fog (not okay), painful sex (not on my watch), rapid weight gain (some gained thirty pounds in a year), decreased libido, and a variety of weird and painful health issues that came on in rapid succession. But you can’t make a group of vibrant vagina and vulva owners go quietly into the shadows. F*ck that shit. So we went searching. And one of my finds was the wonderful, Dr Kelly Casperson. Dr. Kelly Casperson is a board-certified urologist with a specialty in menopause. In this episode, we break down myths about estrogen, discuss the long list of benefits that come from being on systemic estrogen, along with how to maintain sexual vitality after age fifty. Please join us as we break down the culture lie that woman past fifty should slowly fade into the wood work, while concurrently exposing that the truth, that we are wise, powerful, sexy and ready to open deeply into the gorgeous flowers that we are.
Dr. Casperson’s bio:
Dr. Casperson is a board-certified practicing urologist interested in the power of the mind and science to change our views of sexuality. Her podcast called You Are Not Broken which consistently ranks in the top 10 in the Apple “sexuality” category in multiple countries. It has been nominated for an AASECT award for three years running.
From that she has created online courses teaching women the fundamentals of their anatomy and physiology, discussing their limiting beliefs, and normalizing their normal female sexual function, to empower them to live their best love lives. Through the pursuit of a certification with the Life Coach School and the North American Menopause Society, she now combines her medical knowledge with mind-work to help women with surgical precision. An engaging and humorous storyteller, she is a nationally known speaker and is known for being approachable (like your big sister who is a doctor), making people comfortable with these often uncomfortable topics, and changing lives in the bedroom and out with her practical useful tips.
Her book: “You Are Not Broken: Stop Should-ing All Over Your Sex Life” is out now on Amazon
