Healthy sexuality is more than just having sex. It’s about communicating, accepting and giving love and affection; it’s about excercising your sexual rights; and it’s about discussing your feelings and values.

It’s also about physical and emotional needs, pleasure and fulfillment and self-image and respect.

Like your body and your feelings, your sexuality belongs to YOU.

Making wise and informed choices, taking care of your reproductive health and accepting and expressing your sexual identity are all vital to staying sexually healthy throughout your life.

Peel Public Health’s Healthy Sexuality Program, together with individuals and groups, helps to promote a sexually healthy community in Peel. Our services include sexual health clinics, community outreach and a Sexual Health Information Line.
