Sex and podcasts: What Nikki Goldstein wants Australian listeners to learn

Australia’s most in-demand sexologist wants to shed more light on love, sex, relationships and dating in her new podcast series. A product of Southern Cross Austereo‘s partnership with PodcastOne, Sex and Life with Dr Nikki Goldstein was one of the original content series announced yesterday. We chatted to Dr Nikki about the upcoming 12-part show, as well as the benefits podcasting offers. What can people expect from your new show Sex & Life? People can expect to be challenged, entertained and educated. There are subjects and topics I have always wanted to talk about but because they are considered taboo or too sexual,  I have not been able to do it in a public platform. Some of these topics might not be things a listener would personally be into, but they might have a friend who is or have heard something about it.

This is the secret to great sex after kids, according to a sexologist

First, you need to give yourself a break. And by break, I mean stop trying to be perfect, parenting is hard enough.
