Sexual Health Information from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social wellbeing in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health 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. (WHO working definition, 2002External Web Site Icon)

The CDC has a Web site devoted to sexual health information and issues

Topics include HIV/AIDS prevention, sexually transmitted diseases, sexual violence prevention, and reproductive health.
