Ep. 23 Miriam Moreno – Reproductive Health
Miriam Moreno is an expert in sexual and reproductive health. She joins Noah Reynolds and Aaron Maslow to talk about safe sex here on Schooling Noah w/Aaron Maslow and a Special Guest. Miriam works has spent the last several years as a clinician at a reproductive health center. She imbues her knowledge and those experiences with your hosts.
In this episode, Miriam first introduces Noah to a plasticized model of the female reproductive anatomy. It is a larger-than-life replica of what some are calling an “elephant’s vagina.” After she breaks down the mechanics of the inner workings of the human body (pretty simple stuff), Miriam jumps into the exciting and intricate world of birth control. It starts with condoms and, just like any gateway apparatus, ends up with Miriam taking pills. Most of the discussion today circles around which birth control methods exist, how they work, what they prevent and if Noah-ring has ever heard of them.
To conclude this story, Miriam explains to a staunch and pro-life leaning Noah what an abortion is and how it terminates pregnancy. This infuriates Noah who wrestles with his own morals. After he demands science, and gets it, he is taken aback. And maybe, just maybe, does an about face.
This podcast features a ton of health information and jokes. While we make light of things like the inconvenience of herpes, Noah‘s confusion between IUDs and IEDs, the “sex talk,” Wally, different ways of blocking semen from the cervix, dry swallow and the like, the staff at this show would like you to know we care about your health and safety. After listening to this podcast, if you have questions about methods of prevention, where to seek treatment or get more information go to www.pprm.org or call 1-800-230-PLAN. Who even knows what numbers those are on the phone though?
In addition to being a wealth of reproductive health knowledge, Miriam is also a Denver-based comedian. Check her out at her monthly showcase at Mutiny Info Cafe: Comedy Super Jam the last Friday of every month. Or, follow her action at SexPot Comedy.
