Try this primer for sexy chatter
Canadians will celebrate the ninth annual Sexual and Reproductive Health Day on Friday. Sexual health is part of overall health throughout life.
People across the nation are encouraged to take responsibility for their own sexual health, to talk about healthy decision-making with the people they care about, and to become better informed on safer sex practices.
Consider starting a conversation with family or friends this week. If you don’t know what to say, try these topics as conversation starters: • Emergency contraception can legally be sold from pharmacy shelves alongside condoms but usually isn’t. • Some parents are still telling stork stories. • Older adults are remaining sexu- ally active. However, when compared with their younger counterparts, fewer older adults get tested for HIV or use condoms. • Everyone has a sexual orientation. Sexual orientation is your feelings of attraction towards others.
Sexual and Reproductive Health Day is also an excellent time to celebrate our communities’ efforts to support, protect and enhance youth sexual health and sexual and reproductive health across the lifespan. Happy SRH Day!
