Sexual Health Packages
It can be tough to find the right information about a health question. Read about some common health topics in our e-health packages!
Healthy U and Sexual Health
Sexual health is a broad topic that encompasses sexuality, kinks, sex positivity, views on sex, identity, body, consent, healthy relationships, planned pregnancies and knowledge about STIs. Healthy U takes a sex positive, accepting and non-judgmental approach to sexual health.
Consent is the basis of all interactions. We raise our hand in class to talk, ask to borrow a pencil or ask someone to move so we can get off the bus. FRIES is the acronym Planned Parenthood uses for consent:
Freely given: consent is a choice made consciously without manipulation, pressure or under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Reversible: At any point, anyone can change their minds
Informed: Everyone involved knows what will happen
Enthusiastic: You should only things you want to do, not things you are expected to do
Specific: saying yes to one thing (kissing) doesn’t automatically mean yes to another (having sex)
