Let us talk about sexual health!

I have been on this platform for a bit now and it’s overwhelming to see the number of users (mostly young adolescents) with questions, doubts and thoughts about their sexuality and sex.

To me, it seems like the need to explore and express oneself is always in war with what is β€˜right’ and β€˜wrong’, what is β€˜good’ and β€˜bad.’

This primarily stems from the societal stigma around sex. Teaching children and adolescents about the anatomy of the human reproductive system isn’t enough. That is not sex education. Instead,

Teach them about their own bodies

Teach them the vocabulary needed to understand sex and sexuality

Teach them how to navigate romantic/sexual relationships

Teach them how to communicate with their partners

Teach them how to maintain personal boundaries and space

Teach them consent

Help them identify and unlearn beliefs and behaviours that stem from patriarchy

Youngsters should come forward to talk about this topic for better understanding

Absolutely.

Creating spaces for them to do so in a safe and non-judgmental manner is crucial to this!

True, but the way our society has made it such a taboo, it’s not easy and not everyone has access to a safe environment to talk about it or a genuine source to reach out to.

Agreed, it’s not easy to talk openly but one should have proper knowledge from someone experienced and matured person to avaoid any misleading information. Change is on the way

It’s imperative because if people aren’t aware about their own selves and aren’t helped by a genuine source, they will look for other sources, not all of which would be genuine.

We are in 21st century and talking about sex is a taboo. Specially female gender need to be sensitized more about their sexual health along with let them aware about their sexual right.

Rather than talking about sexual health we should focus on the topic of martial rape. this is the biggest taboo in india
