World Sexual Health Day North America
Celebrating Sexual Health Around The World
WHY DO WE NEED A DAY FOR SEXUAL HEALTH?
World Sexual Health Day is an effort to promote greater social awareness of sexual health around the globe.
In 2010, the World Association for Sexual Health (WAS) called on organizations to celebrate World Sexual Health Day on each September 4th. The first World Sexual Health Day was celebrated with the slogan “Let’s talk about it!” to start breaking fears and taboos surrounding sexuality.
Since then, World Sexual Health Day has been celebrated in 35 countries in a variety of ways, from round table discussions to conferences and art exhibitions.
Country organizers have taken WSHD activities to schools, media outlets, hospitals, libraries, universities, public squares, art halls, theatre groups, and so many more places.
WAS wants to ensure that sexual health issues are discussed everywhere!

SEXUAL HEALTH IS...
A state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It 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.
Sexual health covers not only medical or reproductive issues but all aspects of sex like sex education, sexual behavior and sexual attitudes. Therefore, to be sexually healthy, we should have positive and respectful attitudes towards sex, sexuality, and sexual relationships.
In physical terms, sexual health deals with how well one tackles issues such as unplanned pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, and safer sex practices.
