What Does Sexual Health Mean?
Sexual Health is a state of physical, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction, or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination, and violence.
For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected, and fulfilled.
