The Hotbed Collective is back for a fourth series! And our first new guest is the wonderful Clemmie Hooper, aka Mother of Daughters.

We interview her about the wonderful world of vulvas, body knowledge, post-birth recovery and how Clemmie herself manages to get her leg...

It’s Christmaaaaaas! Time to down tools, indulge in some festive cheer and enjoy focusing on those you love most. At best, Christmas brings out the optimist in us all: reminding us of everything we have to be thankful for and encouraging us to show loved ones how much...

About us

We are Anniki and Lisa, and we want to talk about sex. Sex after a 14-hour day of work and parenting. Sex rather than watching five hours of Breaking Bad. Sex after ten years of being in the same bed as each other. Sex when you're single but none of your friends are. We want to talk about sex without even mentioning penis straws.
