Sex Sexual Health Stigma & self stigma Suicide

How comfortable are you in talking about sex and suicide? No matter what, we each have a close relationship with and strong opinions about sex and suicide. Talking candidly about them can be difficult – with each they can fill us with unease, bring up distressing memories, force us to sit with uncertainty and with fear.

Stella Anna Sonnenbaum MPH CSSE is a Somatic Sexologist and Certified Somatic Sex Educator with a busy practice in Central London, UK, and on Zoom. Originally a licensed pharmacist from Berlin, she initially took up Tantra training over 15 years ago when seeking help and advice about how to create more intimacy in the sexless relationship she was in.

She founded her company, Stella with Love, in 2014, with the aim of helping couples and individuals to find more intimacy with each other, and added her certifications in 2015 and 2016 to gain professional expertise in helping clients address and overcome sexual issues, in person, and online. She feels she has found her love and vocation, and gives workshops, lectures and presentations in order to make this very effective body-based approach better known, and to enable people to find more love and pleasure in their lives and relationships.

Following Stella’s interview, Caz speaks sex with Club Mind participants, Steffi and Dave about all things intimacy and sex.

Lastly, we hear the first episode of Leon’s new podcast, The Suicide Chronicles.

E6: Sex and Death: Tender Conversations

Ageing Dementia Recovery Sex Sex Work Suicide

In today’s episode, we examine some of the things we hold near to our hearts but might be afraid to talk about. We talk openly about suicide from those with personal experience and what the research says. This is a story of hope, not despair.

We then have an interview we hope you’ll love as much as we do!

We interview a sex worker who specialises in working with clients who have dementia, living within aged care facilities. Though eye-opening, this is a story of tenderness, not titillation.
