That doesn’t mean, however, that our sexual health needs disappear or stop evolving. “When sex is your job, it gets very blurry, but getting clarity on that has been really empowering for my sexual health and my sexuality in general.”In different ways, both Harper and Gentili have taken proactive steps toward caring for not just their sexual health but their own happiness. That’s important, says Asa Radix, MD, PhD, senior director of research and education at New York City’s Callen-Lorde Community Health Center and vice chair of the board of the American Sexual Health Association (ASHA). ASHA’s website, ashasexualhealth.org, is a wonderful resource for all kinds of sexual health information, including how to find a caring sexual health provider near you. “Sexual health is all about being able to embrace and enjoy your sexuality throughout your life, because it’s an important part of life,” says Radix.
