How informed and confident do you feel about sex and your sexual health? Sex can be an amazing part of your life, but it can be complicated and elicits a whole lot of questions, especially if you’re not aware of some essential facts or it is completely new to you. 

When we talk about sex, it’s natural to feel a little embarrassed or intimidated – particularly if you don’t have a trusted person to confide in, or you’re not sure how to broach the topics you want to know more about. And that’s OK! We rarely always have all the answers.

As part of Deakin’s Student Health Promotion Plan 2023–2025 and in collaboration with Sexual Health Victoria, we are proud to offer You CAN Ask That, a frank and fearless video series about all things sex and sexual health.

So to answer your questions or simply to understand more about sexual health, visit the You CAN Ask That webpage now.

Join our You CAN Ask That events next week

As part of DUSA’s Self Care Week (Monday 6–Friday 10 May), we’re also running You CAN Ask That pop-up events so come and join our Deakin Wellbeing Ambassadors on campus

These free events will include fun activities where we’ll be giving away sexual health packs and providing helpful resources. Stop by our spinning wheel of questions and pick up some freebies! If you’d like to have a confidential chat with a professional about anything personal, our Wellbeing Ambassadors can point you in the right direction too.

How to keep looking after your sexual health

If you can’t make it to campus for our events or want to learn more in your own time, remember to check out the great range of videos and resources on the You CAN Ask That webpage. The webpage also includes information about the range of free and confidential services, available at Deakin and beyond, to help you look after your sexual health and wellbeing.
