We make plans for exercising and eating healthy all year long for improving our physical and emotional health, so why is it that we ignore our sexual health?
Sexuality is more a journey than a destination, and focusing on pleasure will drastically change your relationship with your body.
What is sexual health?
Sexual health can fundamentally be described in terms of the overall health and well-being of an individual, the effects of which are substantial to couples, families, as well as communities, and countries in terms of social and economic development.
Men and women’s capability to achieve sexual health and well-being depends mostly on their knowledge regarding sex and sexuality and their ability to access sexual health care.
Sexual health-related issues include adverse conditions and consequences such as unintended pregnancy and abortion, sexual dysfunction and violence, female genital mutilation and other harmful practices, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), sexually transmitted infections (STI), and reproductive tract infections (RTI).
Addressing issues around sexual health
Sexual health must be understood in terms of economic, political, and social contexts. A positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships is needed for the greater good of society.
Unfortunately, sexual health is influenced by gender roles, norms, and expectations. Simultaneously, it’s only the fulfillment of human rights to express diversity in sexualities through different forms of sexual expression.
Additionally, it’s important to note that sexual health is about emotional, physical, mental, and social well-being as it remains relevant throughout the individual’s lifespan. It’s vital that the subject must gain safety, respect, and freedom from violence and discrimination.
As an individual, the World Health Organization grants you critical rights for sexual health that include effective remedy for the violation of fundamental rights, the freedom of expression and opinion, privacy, equality and non-discrimination, and freedom from torture or inhumane treatment.
Items for your 2021 sexual health plan
Make appointments for pelvic, and prostate examinations and STI checks regularly. If you’re making use of any oral contraception or similar methods, mark your calendar or set reminders for refilling.
It’s also a good practice to stock up on lube and condoms if you have an active sex life. Masturbation helps relieve stress and cramps, and if you’re with a partner, maybe it’s time to discuss a new strategy for experiencing pleasure.
