"Sexual health is defined by the World Health Organization as a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality.It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination, and violence."
It is not only the mere absence of any disease, infirmity or dysfunction.
To be in good sexual health, positive and respectful approach towards own sexuality and sexual relationships is needed along with safe sex practices, free of violence and discrimination.
Providing correct, unbiased information is the cornerstone of our endeavor. Currently, there are very few sources of accurate, scientific information about sex and sexual health. In such a scenario, most of the adolescents depend on sources such as peers, sex magazines, social media, jokes, WhatsApp, and friends, which may not be accurate. Most of such sources give hyped and wrong information.
Sexual health awareness is the need of the hour. It is very much essential to dispel the myths related to sexual health. All persons should have access to authentic information on health, proper health care, control in births, and health education programs irrespective of their gender or any sexual orientation. Sexual health is about avoiding the infections of the sexual tract and sexually transmitted diseases and taking responsibility for protecting ourselves and others from these infections. It also includes an ability to perform and enjoy sexual activity to the fullest capacity.
In the absence of awareness, one may not be aware of the underlying risk factors and seek medical advice/help. The major hindrance is achieving total sexual health is the unwillingness of the individual accept that there is a problem and to openly discuss it with a qualified professional. Sexual health awareness is of major importance as sexually transmitted infections still pose a great threat to the society. Through awareness of sexual health, it is possible to educate and control the sexually transmitted diseases.
