Healthy sexuality

Sexuality is a normal part of the human experience. Therefore, both exploring one’s sexuality and alternatively, not wanting to explore one’s sexuality are valid experiences. Learning about topics like consent, safe sex resources, and maintaining your physical sexual health through frequent check-ups, and testing are all part of healthy sexuality.
