I’m participating in a Vibrant Influencer network campaign for Vibrant Nation and I’m receiving a fee for posting. The opinions expressed in this post are my own. I am in no way affiliated with Vibrant Nation and do not earn a commission or percent of sales.
On March 31, 2015, Vibrant Nation, the leading community for women 45+, held its first live webcast discussion about sex after menopause and I was honored to be a panelist. OK, I admit I was a little nervous, too!
Dr. Barb DePree, a Vibrant Nation sexual health expert and blogger, led the panel of women (me, included) in sharing stories and advice for getting the spark back in the bedroom. The audience participated by asking questions and there were several prizes awarded during the live webinar.
I don’t know about you, but I’m always a little nervous when it comes to discussing sexual issues with my doctor. It was actually much easier talking with Dr. Barb and she helped dispel the mysteries surrounding sex after menopause. More importantly, I found out that it’s not “just me” who has faced these obstacles and we were given vital information such as, “if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.” (You have to watch the video!)
Behind the Scenes
How often do you get to see a behind-the-scenes look at how a webinar went down? Well, here you go!
The Vibrant Nation staff went above and beyond to prepare the panelists for the live webinar. The moderator even sent us helpful tips on how to set-up a makeshift studio in order to have the best possible webinar. Her sense of humor was a breath of fresh air and really helped me relax.
I snapped a couple of photos of the makeshift studio (aka my dining room) with my camera phone so I could share them with you.
The spotlight added just the right amount of light and the laptop was elevated to showcase my face in a more flattering profile. 🙂
You can watch a segment of the video, What is Menopause? below. I’m the one in the lower right-hand corner when it first comes on – right before Dr. Barb begins to talk about menopause. Watch closely or you’ll miss me. 🙂
There are 7 segments in all and you can watch them here! Some of the subjects include Using Lubricants, Is there Viagra for Women? and Tips on Sexual Maintenance.
I’m so thankful to the staff of Vibrant Nation for the invitation and the opportunity to participate as a panelist in my first-ever live webinar event. More importantly, the webinar educated women on the mysteries of menopause.
There’s one thing for certain, menopause will affect all of us women eventually. It’s best to know all the facts before venturing into unchartered territory.
Have you had any menopausal symptoms?
