This September we're back to talk about the kind of sex life you deserve involving pleasure, love and respect.
SEXtember is created by UNSW Health Promotions Unit and aims to encourage the UNSW community to understand how these three elements are foundational in all aspects of intimacy and relationships, not only with others but also with ourselves.
We are now reaching the second half of this festival, so don't miss out on celebrating, questioning and exploring every aspect of sex, intimacy and relationships!
Here is a simple guide for week 2 of SEXtember that you can join!
