Putting the Sexy Back into Safer Sex: The Pleasure Project

Published on 1 October 2006

As Ingham (2005) observes, a greater acceptance of positive sexual experience can hold benefits for public health outcomes. Other studies have found that denying the possibility of pleasure in sexual relations, especially for women, has a negative impact on active negotiation and therefore safer sex (Holland et al. 1992).

Sexual pleasure is beginning to be recognised as a determinant of sexual health in the reproductive health and human rights fields.
