Episode Description

Why is talking about our sexual health such a taboo topic? How can we overcome feelings of shame and negative stigma surrounding sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)? Our host Lexi Sylver invites Courtney Brame, the founder of Something Positive for Positive People (SPFPP), for an open and personal discussion about sexual health. Courtney shares his personal experience receiving a positive herpes diagnosis and why he was inspired to start his podcast to discuss others’ stories about their positive diagnoses. He explains how having an STI or an STD doesn’t mean the end of your sex life. Courtney suggests the best ways to inform yourself and who to talk to about your physical and mental health, good ways to disclose your positive status to your current partner(s) and potential new partner(s) and what to do when you get diagnosed. Lexi and Courtney answer Letters to Lexi and offer advice on safe sex, navigating disclosure and more.
