Show Notes

Drug use is a difficult and controversial topic, increasingly so, when we consider it in the light of intimate engagements. Two taboos collide. You will notice my careful choice of words, hesitancy and curiosity in exploring this topic. Aoife enlightens us as she explains the details of “chemsex”, pleasure / pain balance, communication strategies,  

Although controversial, we encourage open-mindedness and  a willingness to learn as its through knowledge that we can best serve not only patients but ALL those around us.
