Sexual health for the over 45s

Shifting perceptions and helping people to have happy, healthy sex lives.

Why is your sexual health important?

There are a lot of things we think or even worry about as we get older; our health, our finances, our relationships.

Have you stopped to think about your sexual health? Perhaps, now is the time to look into this aspect of life a bit more. Good sexual health is about much more than just avoiding infections or unplanned pregnancies, and it can play an important role in your overall personal health and wellbeing.

Good sexual health means a positive and respectful mind-set towards sexuality and sexual relationships; as well as being able to have pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free from pressure, intimidation, judgement or violence.
