Sex, relationships and your rights

When it comes to sex and relationships, we all have rights. We have the right to stay safe and healthy, we have the right to have relationships and we have the right to have sex or, crucially, not to have sex, if we don't want to.

In this section you can find out more about your rights and responsiblities when it comes to relationships and sex. If you have more questions about anything in this section, you can get in touch with Ask Brook. Ask Brook is confidential. That means we won't tell anyone you contacted us unless we think you're in really serious danger.
