The Bedroom Gap with Dr. Sophocles

ABOUT THE EPISODE

Dr. Maria Sophocles discusses her TED Talk on sex in midlife and the bedroom gap between men and women. She explains the physiological changes that occur in the vulva and vagina during midlife and how they can affect a woman’s sex life. She emphasizes the importance of vaginal estrogen as a preventative medicine and the need for better education and communication between clinicians and patients.

Dr. Sophocles also highlights the need for couples to have open and honest conversations about their sex life and the role of sex therapy in addressing sexual health issues.

The conversation covers various topics related to gender roles, sexual pleasure, and the impact of menopause on libido. It emphasizes the importance of communication and breaking societal norms in order to achieve gender equity in the bedroom.

The fear and misconceptions surrounding estrogen and its association with cancer are also addressed. The conversation concludes with a discussion on the power of education and open dialogue in changing societal attitudes towards sex and pleasure.
