Being healthy is about feeling good physically, mentally and emotionally. Being sexually healthy means that we avoid infections, illnesses and take responsibility to ensure that we protect ourselves and others, emotionally and physically.
In this way, sexual health is an important and integral part of overall health. When we are sexually healthy we make the best decisions for ourselves with regard to our sexual partners and sexual practice.
For people who choose to be sexually active, sex can be enjoyable, safe and should be based on mutual respect and agreement.
