My Big Story with Christopher Swan
How comfortable are you talking about sex with you partner? Do you have questions about sex that you’re not sure who to ask? Or maybe, you have questions about your pelvic health, and finding smart information hasn’t been easy.
You’re not alone. Many adults feel the same way, and have questions.
That’s why Dr. Uchenna “UC” Ossai, the sex-positive pelvic health physical therapist, sex educator and counselor, is sharing her knowledge far and wide.
UC spends her days treating people with both sexual and pelvic floor dysfunction, and her evenings educating the masses on everything that has to do with “sexytime.” Or as she calls it, sex ed for grown folk. She’s also, only one of three licensed Physical Therapists in the world with an AASECT certification in sexuality counseling; as well as the only Black Physical Therapist with this specific designation.
But that’s not the whole story. UC is showing up with her authentic voice, pelvic health clinical knowledge, and an approach that’s based in kindness. This makes UC unique in the world of sex education.
And she delivers her ideas and content in fun, unique ways, including a weekly pelvic health show, an advice column-styled video series, and collaboration with other brands, and public speaking engagements.
I love how UC is showing up, and I knew I needed to head straight to Austin to hear about her story. I met UC at her apartment, and we went right up to the clubroom on the rooftop. We talked all about what she’s doing and why she’s doing it.
But this wasn’t just a interview to understand the basics of it all. This turned into a conversation about why it all matters — why we need to get comfortable with sex talk, and our bodies.
As UC says it, “Don’t be afraid to be you. Just be you, and enjoy it.”
