We head to the Houses of Parliament to speak to Jess Phillips, MP for Birmingham Yardley, about sex and relationships education in schools: why kids should learn about pleasure as well as pregnancy, how growing up in an open 'naked' household paved the way for her career in politics, and which member of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers she fantasised the most about when she was a teenager. In the episode, which is sponsored by the original reusable menstrual cup the Mooncup, we also discuss naming our boobs, why women shouldn't be afraid to ask for what they want in bed, and the secret to a happy relationship (clue: it concerns sharing the mental load..).
