Sexual health depends on a number of different things. It can be about living the way you want to live. It can also be about enjoying life with other people

It can be easier to have good sexual health
if you understand how the body works.
It is important that you know what you want and what you do not want when you have sex.
It is also important that you know what the person you are
having sex with wants and does not want.
If you listen to each other and talk about what you want
and do not want, it will be easier to have safe, enjoyable sex.
If people listen to each other and talk, they will also be sure that
no one is being forced to do something that
they do not want to do.
If you are having problems related to sex or

sexual health, you should seek help.
