Spend some time thinking about what it was like for you and talking to the person who you were sexual with. This is a great way to learn about what you both like and what might need some practice.

Some things for you to think about:

  • Was there anything that felt really good for me?
  • Was there anything that didn’t feel good for me?
  • Was there anything I wasn’t OK with?
  • Was I sexually respectful?
  • What do I want to do more of?
  • Am I caring in the way I treat people sexually?
  • What do I need to do to take care of my emotional and physical health?
  • Reflecting on the sexual stuff you’ve done can help 'coz you can learn about what sexual stuff you (and the other/s you were with) liked and the stuff that wasn’t that fun.

Did you know?

One NZ study found 38% of male and 35% of female students said they have had sexSex
Is different things people choose to do to actively express sexuality and sexual feelings; often this involves genitals, but not always. Other words used in place of “sex” could be “sexual activity”, “sexual experiences”, or just “sexual” – they all mean the same thing. Sex can involve one person (i.e. masturbation) or more. When we talk about sex, we are not just talking about a man putting his penis into a woman’s vagina – there are heaps of ways people can have sex.
For sex to be fun, legal, respectful and pleasurable there must always be CONSENT.

Come on in to the Sex’N’Respect website!

Just a heads up, this website has some stuff about sexual violence which might be upsetting,
especially if you or someone close to you has experienced it.

If you find yourself getting upset, make sure you get support or take a few deep breaths
and think about something that makes you smile.

Some of the topics in here may also conflict with your beliefs.
We think that if a person is harming someone, or their human rights
IT IS NOT OK - no matter what your beliefs are.
