Katy dreams of a world where the sexual and reproductive rights of all people are met - no matter who they are. Her fascination with sex and sexual health began with a Master's thesis on a community health program where health workers used mobile tablets to deliver sex education. Much to the delight of friends, family and passing acquaintances, she hasn't stopped talking about it since! In particular, she believes in the power of digital media to break down the shame and stigma which act as barriers for many people to achieve full sexual health and well being. Using her own experiences, she blogs about many aspects sexual health - from cervical screens to living with cold sores - with a nice sprinkling of sexual pleasure in there too!

Three myths society tells us about periods

Katy Elliott, Sep 02

Ah, periods. Lots of people have them. None of us would be here without them. They’re a necessary and natural part of life. Yet often we associate “that time of the month” with stigma and shame.

What is exercise-induced sexual pleasure?

Katy Elliott, Aug 11

I want to talk about a kind of weird but very cool natural phenomenon. And a pretty good reason to hit the gym, although it has nothing to do with why people usually go.

We need to talk about Vulvas

Katy Elliott, Aug 04

What are Vulvas? It’s not a vagina! People with a uterus have both internal and external genitalia. It’s possible you make the same mistake as my house guests and call the whole lot a vagina.
