Queer Women’s Trauma and Dyspareunia

Dr Sarah Ashton joins us to discuss the collective trauma experienced by LGBTIQA+ women contributed to dyspareunia (painful sex).

Sarah is the director and founder of Sexual Healthy and Intimacy Psychological Services (SHIPS) and is passionate about challenging public discourse around sex.

Jack and Jacinta also discuss with her how the experiences of queer women can be pathologised as problems.

Dr Ashton will be delivering a workshop on this topic at the upcoming LGBTIQ+ Women’s Health Conference. Find out more here.

Check out our other JOY Podcasts for more on LGBTIQ+ health & wellbeing.

If there’s something you’d like us to explore on the show, send through ideas or questions at wellwellwell@joy.org.au

Find out more about LGBTIQ+ services and events in Victoria at Thorne Harbour Health and in South Australia at SAMESH.
