Sheerluxe - March 2020: I gave some modern tips for first date etiquette.

Mashable - February 2020: I offered some advice on how to survive Valentine's Day.

The Daily Mail - 2019: I featured in an article on National Orgasm Day explaining the barriers of female orgasms and what can be done for more sexual pleasure.

Sunday Times - 2019: I was interviewed on the topic of sexual abuse and BDSM practices. Many people practicing BDSM do not have a history of sexual abuse. And many people who have been sexually abused are not attracted to BDSM. But for many, BDSM practice is a powerful healing process after sexual abuse as well as thriving sexually and being intimacy-enhancing. It is a great way to feel connected to your partner and experience deep trust within the erotic and sexual area.

Sustain Natural: I was interviewed by Jo Murphy on the topic of 'sex addiction'. Changing language around mental health is so important. The term 'sex addiction' has taken on cultural meaning with no clinical backing. The label 'addiction' is limiting and can be damaging.

Gay Times: In 2018, I was a monthly columnist writing expert articles on sex and relationships and general mental health well-being for Gay Times .

The Daily Telegraph I was interviewed in 2014 on male fertility issues in the context of a fertility test being available.

Listen to Dr Joe Kort's Podcast Smart Sex Smart Love

I spoke with Dr Joe Kort on the potential harm of 'sex addiction' treatments and 12-step 'sex addiction' programmes as their process can be akin to a modern version of 'conversion therapy'. Although it is largely unspoken, people can be traumatised by such programmes.
