245: Mika Simmons on sex, grief, and happy vaginas
She's a campaigner, an author, a podcaster, and an all-round legend - it's the awesome Mika Simmons!
We talk about why she set up her brilliant foundation, Ladygarden, and what it was like to lose her mother to cancer. There are some very moving moments as Mika describes their last moments together, and what it's like to have to tell your mum she's going to die. Plus, she shares her number one piece of advice for coping with grief.
Then it's back to the usual old filth. We hear about Mika's book, The Happy Vagina, and talk about all sorts of sordid nonsense from overcoming sexual shyness to fiddling with yourself. What is a blended orgasm? Do we all have a g-spot, and if not, can we get one? Why isn't calling someone a pussy such a sexist insult after all? Mika answers all our questions, and reveals a fact about conception that blows Ellie's mind.
