The aim of this resource is to be as definitive as possible around sexual health, sexuality and relationships for all lesbian gay and bisexual people.
With a thorough A-Z of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) there is much more in this handy easy to read pocket book guide to make sure that we can all be informed about sex, sexual difficulties, STIs and common myths associated with sexual health.
This is a guide for both men and women and acknowledges the obvious physical differences between the sexes but also the fact that we all have different body shapes and sizes, and that at the end of the day, there is no such thing as perfection when it comes to our bodies!
There’s a huge range of sexual activities – therefore, it is practically impossible to give an exhaustive answer to every question but Sex Education is written in a straightforward and easy to understand way for ages 16 and upwards.
There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Whilst one person may regard masturbation as ‘sex’, another person may only think of ‘penetration’ when it comes to sex. What matters is that it feels right for you. Our interest in sex continually develops throughout our lives. Thinking about having sex and experimenting is completely normal – whether this is in a fantasy, exploring your own body, or with a partner(s).
To make sure we get the most out of our sex life it is important that we look after our own sexual health. If you are having lots of sex with different sexual partners we recommend a check up once every six months and in this useful guide you will find contact information to where you can get a sexual health check up that is most convenient for you. However if you need further information, or your area is not covered please do get in touch.
