In Episode 43, Kaci Mial joins Dr. Zhana and Joe to talk about the female condom. Some people (including Joe) don’t even know what a female condom is! But this stops with this episode where we learn a lot more about the female, or internal, condom. Kaci discusses the benefits and differences of the internal condom, compared with the more familiar external condom as well as the limited availability of the condom and the reasons and implications behind that. Tune in to find out!

Don’t miss this week’s foreplay…
Are millennials better at staying in marriages than their parents were? A new study has found that divorce rates have dropped by 18% over the last 10 years. One possible reason could be that millennials might be getting married later, choosing to focus more on their careers and reaching economic stability before getting married which often leads to more marital stability. Furthermore, fewer millennials are getting married in the first place, therefore not contributing to the divorce rate at all. There are many possible answers to this new, unprecedented finding.
