A quote by Albert Camus says 'The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.'

On one of her recent blog posts titled 'How to have a better orgasm', Emily Lavinia (also known as ace + boogie) says that she read this quote as a teenage girl and felt that it was something to live by. Emily explains 'I don't actually think my very existence is an act of rebellion but I've tried my hardest to advocate for the freedoms that I think are important.'

Just take one look at Emily's work and it's clear to see that she's not afraid to speak up about topics that are often rooted with shame and stigma for the benefit of educating others about topics that are, in fact, completely natural behaviours. She achieves this, not only through her lifestyle, beauty and wellness blog (ace + boogie), but also by representing and writing about the mental and sexual health and wellbeing of women and young people, and also by being a consultant for female-focused brands and organisations.

We caught up with Emily to find out more about her work, and chat about her views on and the stigma associated with women's sexual health, wellness and pleasure.
