Sex Clinic's Sarah Mulindwa shares most common sex questions patients ask her


Sarah Mulindwa is a nurse and the star of E4’s The Sex Clinic, a show that aims to help educate young people about relationships, sex and their bodies.

In each episode Sarah sees patients and attempts to assist them with whatever challenges or issues they might be facing.

So it’s fair to say that the sex educator has seen and heard a lot.

But what are the most common questions she gets asked about sex?

The 34-year-old has shared the five questions she’s asked the most and her answers exclusively with Mirror Online.

1. Can I get a STI through oral sex?

Yes, you can. Chlamydia is one of the most common STIs and it is often transferred orally.

For many people it is symptomless, so they don’t know they are passing it on.

Men who develop symtoms can experience pain passing urine and discharges and women sufferers can experience pain during sex and bleeding.

2. Can I sleep with a new partner under social distancing rules?

The Government advice is that we should only be having sex with established partners but we all know that is unrealistic.

If you meet someone new and want to sleep with them try to see if you can both get tested both for Covid and STIs, so you both know you are safe.

Obviously refrain from sex or any human contact if you are showing any Covid symptoms such as a cough or fever.

3. How can women improve their chance of having an orgasm during sex?

Only around a third of women can climax through intercourse alone. You improve your chances through added clitoral stimulation during sex.

Introducing a sex toy such as a bullet vibrator which can be pressed on the clitoris during penentration will greatly improve your chances.

4. Can you get pregnant using the withdrawal method?

Yes of course you can through pre-cum which is released by the penis. However, the chances of pregnancy are greatly reduced if the man does not ejaculate.

We don’t recommend withdrawal as a method of contraception.

5. Do you need to use two condoms if you are having anal and vaginal sex with the same partner?

Yes, you do – one separate condom for each activity. This will limit the chances of both of you picking up infections.

Speaking at sexual happiness brand Lovehoney’s  Virtual Camp, an online event aimed at helping people to lead a more sexually happy life, Sarah also shared the most shocking thing a patient has ever said to her on The Sex Clinic.

She said: “The most shocking patient we had on the show was a young lad who had been on a boys’ holiday in Spain and had been very promiscuous and had had a lot of unprotected sex.

“He was worried about picking up a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and was very demeaning about women.

“He compared women to pedigree dogs and said they should have a certificate with them like a dog Crufts so you knew they were safe.

“I could not believe his attitude and I gave him a real telling off. There was a backlash against him from viewers who could not believe what he was saying.

“It turned out he had experienced some trauma in his past which shaped his attitudes.”

Recently, Sarah has put her TV career on hold to return to the NHS frontline to care for patients with coronavirus.

She went back to nursing during the Covid-19 outbreak, and admits to finding the shifts long and emotionally-draining.

“I temporarily and voluntarily returned back to where it all began,” she explained.

“I was nervous and anxious about returning, not just because of the obvious risk but also because I’d lost all confidence in my clinical skills.”

She added: “I was so relieved at how quickly it all came back to me! It turned out it was like riding a bike (ish).”
