Sexual health

Sexuality is part of health
Sexuality is part of somebody’s health. Sexual health is about having the possibility of a sexually healthy relationship, of recognising and having respect for one’s own and other people’s wishes and limits. Sexual diversity – differences in sexual preference and gender – is an aspect of sexual health.
