“Young people under 30 should get a test at least once a year…it’s always worth getting tested” – Dr. Amy Moten, SHINE SA

Sexual health is incredibly important. Despite treatments, contraceptives and education services being pretty widely available, unfortunately some don’t take the time to see to their downstairs health, nor exactly feel comfortable talking about it. To find out a bit more about how to take better care of ourselves and how to stay safe in the bedroom, Dr. Amy Moten from SHINE SA (AKA Sexual Health Information Networking & Education) came in to discuss sexual health and answer a few delicate questions from listeners.

Also on the show, with the internet providing people with increasing access to pornography, it’s no surprise that addiction to the material is becoming a major issue, and from that comes concerns that it is warping young people’s perceptions of healthy sexual relationships. We had a chat with professional sex therapist Nina Booysen, who says porn addiction is becoming a public health issue for young people. Meanwhile, what do you wish you’d learned from sex ed in high school? It’s all well and good to chuck a condom on a banana, or learn how babies form, but it doesn’t always help when it comes to the real deal. We hit the streets of Adelaide to get your thoughts.
