Sexual Health

By FLrla 29 Sep 2021

SEX! - Something that is not always talked about. For a long time, sex has been a rather taboo topic, however, I believe that most people underestimate the importance of talking about this openly... So, Let's talk about sex baby!

It's completely fine to not know everything about a subject, especially when it comes to something as broad as sex and the truth is that it is completely ok if things dont always work out how they were planned. Sex can be messy, fun, awkward and amazing. Whatever you decide to do or experiment with, it is crucial that you communicate with your partner and always gain consent.

As human beings, we are curious creatures so it is normal to have questions. Below are places in and around Coventry that can help if you have any questions. They also provide services for contraception, advice about STI's and how/when to get tested.

ISHS - Integrated Sexual Health Services

Open between 8-8:30am (Monday to Friday) and only a phone call away (0300 020 0027), the ISHS offers assistance to a range of schools, colleges and universities for sexual health advice. Within their service they cover topics such as sex and relationships, STI testing, pregnancy, Sexual abuse and abortion. They also offer the C-card scheme, which offers free condoms to young people and a free chlamydia screening.
