Sexual Health: Homepage

sexual health

When I refer to sexual health, I'm not talking about sexually transmitted diseases. Although that is very important, there are plenty of sites out there that address that.

For our purposes, sexual health here refers to our sexual attitudes and self-esteem; our sexual mental health.

What is the most important aspect of sexual health? To me, it's learning to love yourself and respect yourself enough not to get involved in bad sexual relationships, or any kind of hurtful relationships of any type. One of the other problems people have is being able to open up and talk about sex. Even after the "big" sexual revolution of the 70's, there are still many people who carry a lot of shame and guilt when it comes to sex.

So, welcome. Come inside. Maybe it's time to learn How to Love Yourself.
