Sexual health doesn’t have to be the elephant in the room, and we believe we should all be able to discuss sexual health. That’s why we’ve put together this campaign to shine a light on aspects of sexual health that are seen as taboo - but shouldn’t be.
Condoms are by far the best prevention measure to protect from STI transmission. Condoms can help reduce the risk of Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia, HIV and unwanted pregnancy. But that being said, we know that sex with a condom doesn’t feel the same as it does without it and that some people see it as a bit of a passion killer. That’s why we want you to know that nowadays there’s a range of sizes, fits and flavours that can not only help prevent STIs but also increase pleasure and performance. Check to see if you’re eligible for free condoms on the below links:
Testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) doesn’t mean anything other than you’re conscientious about your sexual health. We need to fight stigmas and misinformation around STI testing because EVERYBODY should make testing for STIs part of their sexual health routine. Far too often people wait until symptoms show before testing, but some STIs can be present in the body without any symptoms, meaning that the only way to detect STIs and truly know is by testing regularly.
