There's no sealed section here - sex is something that we really should speak more openly about. It's not something we should be ashamed of and only discuss in hush hush tones. It's natural, and for the most part, it's how we got to be here! Talking about it allows us to recognise our boundaries, and by de-stigmatising sex we're enhancing the discussion around consent, what consent is, and what you should do if you feel your consent has been violated.  It's also the best way we can empower ourselves to make our own informed decisions surrounding sex and sexual health, and it enables us to understand and advocate for our own personal autonomy.

Sex & Consent


4:30 pm

It can sometimes be difficult to navigate and voice consent when it comes to sex, especially when the legality of things comes into light. Here you'll find some information on defining consent, and how to determine it for yourself, as well as some advice to follow if you feel your consent has been violated

Sex is great, but if you're not trying to get pregnant then contraception is imperative. There's so many options these days, and when it comes to physiological pregnancy prevention, unfortunately the responsibility largely falls on us ladies. In saying that, we're fortunate that there's many accessible contraception options these days - so, what are they, and how do you get your hands on them? 

STI's and Prevention


11:30 am

Sexually transmitted infections (STI's) can cause temporary discomfort, but can be really serious and cause life long issues with your reproductive health and general well being if left untreated. With this in mind, it's obviously  important to keep yourself safe and prevent contracting them. Using condoms, having regular sexual health checks, and being aware of what the signs and symptoms are, are all key in keeping yourself free from STI's
