What is Sexual Wellness?

Sexual wellness is the understanding that sex isn’t just intercourse or masturbation. It’s related to our overall wellness, how we feel in our skin, and how connected we are with our partner(s). In the same way that maintaining a clean bill of health does not automatically make you sexually healthy, having a sexually transmitted disease doesn’t mean you can’t be sexually healthy either.
