There's almost no STI that you can't get from oral sex.

Dr. Elna Rudolph, Founder and Clinical Head - My Sexual Health

You have to have a pap smear within two years of becoming sexually active or by the age of 25, even if you're not sexually active. Women in same-sex relationships still need to have their pap smears.

Your penis is telling you what's happening in your heart.

Any guy with erectile dysfunction needs to go and see a doctor immediately because it is so closely associated with heart disease.

Dr. Elna Rudolph, Founder and Clinical Head - My Sexual Health

Every single person has a need for sexual health education, even if you are single or asexual, there are things that you need to know.
