Celebrating the DIVERSITY of humans
It is a Human Right to have access to medically accurate, age appropriate, sexual health and wellbeing information at all ages and stages of life.
Children deserve to understand their body and how it works, and about healthy relationships. Especially when it comes to safety, health and wellbeing, it is crucial that young people have access to comprehensive sexuality education.
Many children have inadequate formal sexuality education or conversations with parents and carers. That is why Talking The Talk has developed this Young People’s resource aimed at 16+ people to access reliable and accurate content in one place.
Everyone deserves healthy development and wellbeing experiences, as well as, happy, informed, positive, consensual, joyful, pleasurable, intimate encounters and partnerships. Information is power when it comes to the best opportunities to have a safe and healthy sexual journey as Human Sexual Beings.
Our society does not do enough to prevent children from having access to violent sexualised online content, harmful social media and advertising. This often becomes the default education.
Parents & carers overwhelmingly want their children to have this information but often feel uncomfortable when discussing human sexuality, respectful relationships and consent topics with their children and so often avoid it. Many adults have never had adequate sexuality education themselves.
A very small vocal minority of adults try to actively withdraw, block and prevent sexual health and respectful relationship information we think this is neglectful, when overwhelming global evidence tells us that information provision keeps them safe healthy and happy.
! In the absence of accurate information, children are getting a sexuality education from the world around them; social media, internet, online mainstream pornography and popular culture, they deserve better than that. We hope you share this page wth your young person.
