When we think about sexual health, we might automatically think of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s) and getting ourselves checked for these at a Sexual Health clinic however, sexual health is much more than that. It’s about sexual identity, the law, consent, contraception, abuse and how we conduct ourselves in relationships.

This session will provide a background to all the elements mentioned above with an emphasis on both the fun and serious aspects of sex as well as a look at what goes on in a Sexual Health clinic. We will explore different LGBTQIA+ terms and definitions.
