Sexual health is the ability to embrace, understand and enjoy sexuality throughout our lives. It is an integral part of our physical and emotional health.
Sexual health is an important part of your physical and mental health as well as your emotional and social well-being. It's important to take care of your sexual health and to talk about sex and relationships with your loved ones. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled.
