Sex, Sexuality, & Intimacy

Thumbnail for Sex, Sexuality, & Intimacy folder JPGIntimate behaviors, including sex, are a natural part of life. Your capacity for sexual feelings and your sexual preferences make up your sexuality. Intimacy involves actions that help you feel close and connected to your partner. However, most people find it difficult to talk about sex and intimacy. Sex can be a rewarding, fun, and healthy activity that can improve overall health (when practiced safely). On the other hand, sexual problems are associated with depression, anxiety, stress, and poor coping, and might impact social support, which can decrease resilience and overall well-being. This section provides information about sex, sexuality, and intimacy, as well as sexual problems.
