Sexual Health

Sometimes it’s hard to know where to find accurate sexual health information for GBTQ guys. At the EMHC, we’re trying to make that easier.

Throughout this section, you’ll find information on a range of sexual health topics. All of the information you read here has been developed by local GBTQ guys, many of whom are also healthcare and service providers who work within sexual health.

Our aim is to be sex-positive and evidence-driven in our approach to sexual health. We aren’t looking to police your sex life. We want you to be able to have the sex you want to have and we’re hoping that this information can help you determine which safer sex options work best for you.

Note: One of the EMHC’s key aims is to be inclusive of all guys within the GBQT community. If you read something and feel as though it doesn’t speak adequately to your identity or experience, please let us know.
