Before children begin puberty, masturbation is not a sexual behaviour. It is not driven by sexual needs, wants or fantasies, the way it often is for adults.
If your child touches themselves it does not mean they are developing in a sexually unhealthy way. This behaviour is not harmful to your child. In fact, it is often a healthy behaviour. Exploring and getting to know one’s own body is important.
It is a popular misconception that only certain types of people have abortions or contract STIs. But people of all ages, ethnicities, religions, cultures and income levels have abortions. STIs do not care who a person is, how much money they make, or how many people they have slept with. When opportunity knocks, STIs answer.
Do you know a happy couple? You know, with the type of relationship many people are looking for: they laugh together, they cry together, they take on the world together. You may wish you knew their secret or you might want to barf. Either way, this couple probably has a relationship based on a deep friendship.
