Lip Service Classics: Safe Sex (Fresh Nethers Lip Service)

Our regular episode was called on account of illness and injury, so it's only appropriate we bring you something on the subject of health. This time, sexual health.

Join Annie, Jenni, Izzy and Nida to hear how to keep safe doing what the birds, bees and educated fleas do.

Lip Service Classics: Vagitarianism (Friday Night Lunch Service)

We talked about it on the Ecofeminism episode last week, and now you can hear it for yourself whether on again or for the first time.

Annie, Daria, Jess, Lydia and Nida are faced with a stereotype that lesbians are vegetarians. Is it true that Women Who Love Women are more inclined to consume plant matter? Should we be? And will Nida really make the jump way up the opposite end of the spectrum?

To mark the six-month 'anniversary' of her passing, we present for the podcast the Friday Night Lip Service tribute to Stella Young.

Lip Service Classics: What Gets Us Hot (Fare’Nheit Lip Service)

Due to a tech issue, no new episode of Friday Night Lip Service was broadcast this week. But you need not go without your Serve of Lip this week, as we bring you another episode from the vaults.

In the words of the the Bard, 'Some like it hot, and some sweat when the heat is on.'
Apart from the indecisive sun of an Australian summer, what gets your favourite Friday Night Lip Servants all hot and sweaty? Find out in this Lip Service Classic presentation with a full house of April, Camille, Jillian, Liz and Mel.

(What is the collective noun for Lipsters, anyway?)
