In an aim to show our solidarity to the millions of people living with HIV worldwide, this episode from Tales from the Tea Room was dedicated to talk about sexual health. With special guests Alastair Rose and Christopher Ward from SX – an organisation that aims to improve the sex, health, and wellbeing of gay and bisexual men, and all men who have sex with men living in Scotland – we had a rich conversation from a holistic approach to sexual health. We talked about sex beyond the mechanics of it; touching upon identities, communities, LGBTQ history, HIV, intimacy, pleasure, mental health, and above all, the importance of being there for each other.
