Sexual health for men and women is an important part of overall health and well being. It means having a positive and healthy understanding of your sexuality at all ages. Sexual health includes physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It also includes the ability to control and positively experience your own sexuality and reproduction. Sexual health is about understanding your body, sexuality and sexual identity.
