What is Sexuality?

Sexuality is a central aspect of being human throughout life and encompasses sex,
gender identities and roles, sexual orientation, eroticism, pleasure, intimacy and
reproduction. Sexuality is experienced and expressed in thoughts, fantasies, desires,
beliefs, attitudes, values, behaviors, practices, roles and relationships. While sexuality
can include all of these dimensions, not all of them are always experienced or
expressed. Sexuality is influenced by the interaction of biological, psychological,  
social, economic, political, cultural, ethical, legal, historical and religious and spiritual

What is Sexual Health?

Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being related to
sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual  
health 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. For sexual health to be
attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected
and fulfilled.**
