Urinary incontinence affects up a third of women and can seriously affect them physically, psychologically and sexually. Despite not being life-threatening, urinary incontinence has been associated with sexual dysfunction, relationship problems, withdrawal from sports and exercising, travel restrictions, depression and social isolation. Tonight a free public lecture on the subject is being given by at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, by Mark Slack, Head of Urogynaecology at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge. He joins Jenni to discuss the symptoms, the causes and the range of treatments on offer.
Out in the World
A new four-part series starting on BBC Radio 3 on Sunday night sets out to excavate a history of gay identity across the globe. Out in the World is presented by Richard Coles and will tell the story of same sex desire from the Ancients right through to the present day. It’s a task which is far from straightforward, though, as he finds on a visit to Egypt in search of the earliest traces of homosexuality.
Out in the World starts on Sunday 18th September at 7.45 on
BBC Radio 3.
The poet Lavinia Greenlaw has a new collection out in which she invents what appears to be a new tense, giving the book its name, “The Casual Perfect”. Dance, music, science and the celebrated American poet Elizabeth Bishop all play a role in the poems and many celebrate “the achievement of the provisional” – she’ll be explaining what she means by that.
“The Casual Perfect”, Faber and Faber, 8th September.
“Audio Obscura”, joint commission by the Manchester International Festival and ArtAngel – ran earlier in the year in Manchester and opened this week at St Pancras Station, London, until 23rd Oct.
