Who to talk about sexuality ?

Talking about sexuality is sometimes taboo but as with everything, communication is the key!

So who are the good people to talk to and what are the skills of a particular professional? We explain all that to you.


Why do we have to talk about sex and especially about our feelings?

But then, with whom to talk about that?

The person who shares your life : Because it is the first concerned and that if there is someone who should understand you it is him or her. It is not always easy for you to find the right words and the good time, but more we talk about it, more the discussion is fluid.

Your family: And especially your children / parents, because sexuality is not taboo and it will avoid big mistakes with bad repercussions.
