Sexual health does not mean having unenjoyable sex, but rather valuing and feeling good about yourself, having peace of mind when getting busy, having positive relationships, experiencing pleasure, and avoiding sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unplanned pregnancies.  ​

Is sexual health just about sex?​

Sexual health is about more than sex. It is wide-ranging and encompasses sexual orientation and gender identity, sexual expression, relationships, pleasure, protection, sexual violence, consent, STIs, and unintended pregnancies.​ 

Why is sexual health important?​ 

Good sexual health is important for your overall health and well-being and is as important as any other type of health. It often includes the confidence to be open with yourself, your partner/s, and healthcare professionals. Learning more and educating yourself on safer sex practices helps you take charge of your #ForeverWena journey.​
