Come and join us for Cafe V on Saturday 20th August.

This is a safe space for women who have experienced sexual violence to learn about sexual pleasure and reclaiming your body after assault. This hour-long session will explore problems with sex, where women anonymously submit their questions to us and we’ll answer them during the session. Depending on what we’re asked, this session could focus on all kinds of problems, like vaginismus, vulvadynia, dyspareunia or feeling out of control when you have sex following experiences of assault, and anything else you’d like us to discuss. We’ll also talk about finding the right contraception for you.

Café V is run especially for women who have experienced sexual violence. We will look at practical ways to connect with the body and physical relaxation techniques. Everybody is welcome and there will be plenty of cakes, teas and a supportive atmosphere. You can choose to listen and contribute as much or as little as you wish.

The workshop is free of charge and you can register through the website or email us on

Cafe V will be presented by sexual wellbeing psychologist Amanda O’Donovan (Barts Health NHS Trust) and psychologist Raquel Correia from The Havens.
