All About Desire, with Dr Karen Gurney and Kelly Ford

At a special live show of The Hotbed, recorded live at Soho Radio pre-lockdown, Hotbed favourite Dr Karen is here to explain why everything you believed about desire is WRONG! We talk about the 237 reasons we have sex, what (and who!) makes us feel sexy, how contraception can mess with your mood, why you should get listening to some audio porn, and how to make trying-to-conceive sex hotter than hell. We also have the multi-talented Kelly Ford, AKA Book of Mum, to talk about girl-crushes and to deliver a one-off performance of her super-sexy poem. This episode is kindly sponsored by Mooncup, the original silicone reusable menstrual cup. Go to and use the code HOTBED to get 10% off until the end of June 2020. Recorded at Soho Radio, produced by Alex Graham.
