Sexual Health



 

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are often the punch line of jokes and public ridicule on Facebook, Twitter, or TV. But this can create shame around the issue of sexual health, creating less openness, less public knowledge, and less honesty among sexual partners. Talking about sexual health helps fight stigma and promotes more educated actions and decisions.
