Last week's Liveline conversation about Normal People proved that we now have a 'before and after' divide when it comes to sex in Ireland. Before, sex was viewed as something secret, sometimes shameful, not necessarily pleasurable, often dutiful. After - now - we think of sex as fun, natural, not something to be scared of, or hidden away.

Yoga teacher Jenny Keane is firmly in the latter camp. Since lockdown restrictions began, Jenny has taken her teaching online, with the launch of her Online Orgasm course. There is certainly an audience for her teaching. Attendance for the first three events, held on Zoom, women only, has numbered over 500.

"I'm the kind of person who asks 'when was the last time you had an orgasm?'," Jenny says, erupting in her easy laugh, when we speak. "I eat, sleep, breathe this. If you're with me, you can't be not having conversations on this. You can't escape this - my family, my friends. Talking about sex is no different from talking about anything else, no matter how much you want it to be."
