Sex & you

 sex & you

This section of our site is intended to give you a lot of the information you’ll need when it comes down to actually having sex, and to dealing with lots of the ‘other’ stuff that is related to sex!

We’ve got a page about losing your virginity, which has great tips about how to decide whether or not you are ready, and advice about planning your first time so that it is safe and so that you don’t regret it.

To help you stay safe (and legal!), we’ve got a section on your sexual rights & responsibilities, information about how the law will impact you and sex, and advice about safely combining sex with drugs and alcohol. We’ve also put up some guidance about avoiding sexual exploitation and grooming, and given advice about what to do if you have been sexually assaulted or raped.

One of our pages has a pretty frank discussion about whether or not pornography is based on reality or fantasy, and gives you a bit of advice about how to watch porn (if you want to!) without it affecting your sex life or self-esteem.

Finally, we’ve put up some information for your parents and/or carers…they need to know about sex, too, and we’ve given them some advice on how to talk to you about it when both of you are ready.

Please feel free to contact us at swish@brighton-hove.gov.uk with your questions or comments.
