It has been confirmed that women are more likely to talk about sex with their friends than their partners.
Women’s intimate health brand Balance Activ as part of BV Awareness Month have revealed that women won’t share sex secrets with their partners but will happily discuss with friends.
According to a study, 38% will reveal how often they have sex and 3 in 10 will give details such as where they have done the deed.
However, women are not as open to share details about intimate health matters.
Less than 1 in 5 women will discuss this with their friends as they fear they will be rejected or feel embarassed.
In a bid to encourage more women to talk about intimate health issues, Balance Activ and Dr Dawn Harper have organised its ‘Time to Talk’ campaign, in conjunction with BV (Bacterial Vaginosis) Awareness Month.
It isn’t just women who shy away from talking about sexual health matters – only 6% of men talk about these issues.
Some men feel embarassed to speak to their partners or GP about sexual health problems such as erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
STIQ day is all about YOU, or more importantly, your sexual health!
It’s been launched to get you to think more about your sexual health and getting yourself tested to make sure that you are not infected.
After all…without a test, can you be 100% certain that you don’t have one?
The infection number in the UK is rising all the time, regardless of age, sexual orientation or number of sexual partners. It only takes one unprotected encounter for you to get an infection, and some of them can be fatal if left untreated!
What could you catch?
Well, there are many different infections that you could catch, and many of them are easily treated and clear up in no time at all, but there are also some which can be particularly painful and in some cases life threatening if left untreated!
