Sex and relationships

Looking after our sexual health is a crucial part of staying happy and well. Taking responsibility for our health is a big part of growing up. We owe it to our partners to look after their sexual health too.

Isn't sexual health just about diseases?

Being sexually healthy does mean taking steps to avoid getting any sexually transmitted infections. We also need to get tested if we think there's a problem and get treatment for any infections that are found.

But good sexual health is also about:

  • taking care of our personal safety
  • feeling confident about our sexuality
  • knowing how to treat others with respect
  • being able to talk about likes and dislikes
  • not having any regrets
