What is Sex?

People define sex differently. This will depend on your gender identity, the behaviors you enjoy doing with your partner or with yourself and can include more than the physical act of intercourse.  Talking with your partner(s) about your personal definition of sex is important to make sure that all parties involved are on the same page.  

Our goal at WELLWVU is to provide students with as much accurate and relevant information about sexual health as possible. Whether you’re abstinent or sexually active, we are here to provide you with as many resources as possible to help you make healthy and responsible decisions for your life. Whatever you choose to do, we are here to support you!


 This video from sex educator Al Vernacchio really lays things out using a great metaphor – pizza!
