Let’s Talk about Sex

Wanna talk about sex? We do!

Since June 2020, we’ve been having conversations around everything from masturbation, pleasure, boundaries, consent, touch and initiating conversations with people in your life about your access to sex and sexual identity. 

Sex and sexual expression are a normal part of adult life, but speaking about it can often feel awkward and uncomfortable. Our members were telling us that they wanted to know more about sex and everything around it but didn’t know who to ask.

Meet our Peer Mentor Kaz and ex-peer mentor Mairi:

We’ve been chatting to Crew2000, Healthy Respect and Enhance the UK, and in response to this, have developed get2gether’s Let’s Talk About Sex sessions and courses. For our drop-in sessions, we regularly bring in guest speakers and have previously covered topics such as sex toys, online dating, flirting and talking to support staff about sex.

The image says that 90% of participants said it was important to have a safe space, share feelings and listen to each other.

“This has been invaluable and listening to you all has been wonderful. These sessions have been very healing for me, very cathartic. Just because you identify as asexual, like me, does not mean you can’t talk about sex.”

The image says ‘Why do you want to talk about sex?’ There is a pie chart. 50% of participants say ‘I have questions and I want answers’, 40% say ‘I want to learn from the community’ and 10% would like to share their story.
