Sexual Wellbeing and being healthy is about feeling good physically, mentally and emotionally. Being sexually healthy means that we avoid infections and illnesses. It also means taking responsibility to ensure that we protect ourselves and others, emotionally and physically.
In this way, sexual health is an important and integral part of overall health. When we are sexually healthy we make the best decisions for us that we can with regard to our sexual partners and sexual practice.
For people who choose to be sexually active, sex can be enjoyable, safe and should based on mutual respect and agreement.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines sexual health as:
Equality and mutual respect
To negotiate with your sexual partner(s) to ensure that the sex you have is the sex you want
Protecting yourself and protecting others
Protecting yourself and others from sexually transmissible infections, unintended pregnancy etc.
Awareness of emotional and psychological reactions
Be aware of the emotional and mental health difficulties which could arise from undue pressure to have sex or to engage in a sexual activity which makes you feel uncomfortable
We should acknowledge different sexualities without discrimination, prejudice or judgement.
Sex and Wellbeing
For many people sex is an important and healthy part of our lives. Sex can be fun, exciting, wonderful and loving. Being sexually healthy means making a happy, chosen and healthy decisions about your sex life. Being sexually healthy also means protecting yourself and your partner/s from sexually-transmitted infections (STI’s).
So What Do We Know about Sexual Wellbeing?
Half of us haven’t had sex in the last month, and one in four of us is dissatisfied with our sex lives, according to a recent survey on the state of modern relationships. Among a wide range of findings, researchers report that almost one in six people said a good sex life is fairly or very important.
The importance we place on sex actually diminishes the longer we’ve been in a relationship. A third of those who have been in a relationship for less than two years saw sex as very important, but this dropped to 22% of people who’d been shacked up for 10 to 14 years.
The ones among us who say they’re satisfied with their under-the-sheet time also report feeling good about themselves more often than the quarter of us who are dissatisfied.
Not too surprisingly, those in the sexually satisfied camp were also more likely to report having a good or very good relationship with their partner.
This proves that whether single, coupled or anything else, sex, sexuality, sensuality and wellbeing all go hand in hand. You can feel much more satisfied with other areas of your life if you are happy in the bedroom department. Sexual Wellbeing gives a sense of fulfilment that is not easily replicated by other means.
