Sexuality and Relationships

Healthy Relationships


In a positive and healthy relationship, some of the things that should be present are:

  • Respect
  • Knowing yourself and your personal preferences
  • The freedom to express your thoughts and feelings
  • The ability to express or share your needs

Sex Positivity

Sex positivity is about being comfortable with your own sexual identity and with that of others. It involves:

  • Having positive attitudes about sex and the idea that consensual activities are basically pleasurable and healthy
  • Openness to learning more about sexual activity
  • Trying to understand the physical and emotional aspects of intimacy
  • Being positive about yourself or others if and when they do not want to have sex, or identify as asexual
  • Feeling comfortable asking questions
