Sexual Health Principles


Based in a rich history of community practice, scholarship and clinical investigation, the Six Sexual Health Principles are currently used to shape customized Sexual Health Plans in many different clinical settings. The Principles help to begin conversations that inspire careful consideration about the motivations for people’s erotic lives and pursuit of sex.

The Six Sexual Health Principles:

1. Consent
2. Non-exploitation
3. Protection from HIV, Sexually Transmitted Infections and unintended pregnancy
4. Honesty
5. Shared values
6. Mutual pleasure

Do any of these resonate with things that you value (or wish you valued more) about your intimate or sexual relationships?

If it feels like one or many of these may be lacking in your relationships, I would be honored to explore with you some ways you may be thinking about making a change.
