Concurrent 3 – Sex, sexuality and intimacy

1325-1455 | Friday 8 October, 2021

Talking about sex and intimacy doesn’t have to be awkward. At the conference in October, 2021 we were joined by Simone Sheridan, Alex Coombs, Scott Russel, A/Prof Chris Barnes and Penny McCarthy for a lively discussion on sex, and how it’s about more than just making babies. 

These sessions were presented at the 20th Australian Conference on Haemophilia, VWD and Rare Bleeding Disorders, held virtually on 8-9 October 2021. Watch the recording below.
