In this episode, I am chatting with Richelle Menzies, a Clinical Sexologist based in Hobart, Tasmania.
Aside from her private practice, Sensual Potential, Richelle is also the resident sexologist on BENT FM and has been a guest speaker with renown sexologist Isiah McKimmie talking about non-monogamous relationships and vulvas. Richelle is very well-known in the Queer community for her work. Richelle is a lifetime member of Queensland Aids Council, a member of the LGBTI Health Alliance, the Society of Australian Sexology (SAS), the Australian Counselling Association, the Australian Community Workers Association and the National Disability Practitioners network.
If you would like to work with Richelle you can contact her via her website: http://www.sensualpotential.com.au/
The 101 year old Sexologist mentioned by Richelle is Dr Shirley Zussman.

Change of Mind
Unlike shopping for a new dress or shirt where it’s easy to exchange or refund goods, the purchase of a pleasure device makes it very difficult to process returns.
Our Maven understands that sometimes what a product looks like on screen isn’t quite what is expected on the box when it arrives. If this is the case, please do not open the packaging. Instead, you must notify The Spicy Boudoir within three days of receipt of the product by writing to: firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Change of mind return’ in the subject line. Please note that the costs of return and resending delivery costs are borne by the customer.
Please provide your contact details and a team member will call you to discuss the options available to you. Change of mind requests outside the three day timeframe cannot be accepted.*
Return for exchange of similar product or products to equal value (depending on availability)
Return for store credit
Return for refund of product purchase*
