About Sarah Swofford:
Sarah is a Sex Educator. Her career started in DC as a rape counselor. She has also been an HIV health educator and taught sex education. Later she moved to MO and worked with at risk youth. She taught providers how to provide sex education resources for kids at risk for STDs. After having her own baby, she started to wonder what was wrong with her – because she had no desire at all to have sex.
Listen to the podcast to find out what happened at a Mom’s group book club one night that led to her book: From Ouch to Ahhhh: The New Mom’s Guide to Sex After Baby.
In this episode:
Sarah and I had a great time discussing all kinds of fun topics, from how she got started in this career, why she wrote her book, and why she is so passionate about having moms get back to enjoying sex.
- From Ouch to Ahhh… is not prescriptive but it explains and normalizes why sex is so different as a new mom.
- Now her children are older and she is focusing on better sex for moms across the board.
- I asked her about talking to kids about sex. Directness was her response. She recommends books by Robie H. Harris, such as this book: It’s So Amazing.
One question she’ll answer:
What is different for the moms who are having active sex lives?
Top Sex Tip:
Kegels. Do the kegels. 60 kegels a day throughout the day.
Sarah provides some other tips as well, so be sure to listen to the podcast!
