Description:
In Ireland we have long had a highly religious and traditional social structure with an emphasis on family values. The sexual practices of women likely to become pregnant are profoundly important, but so too are the customs and norms surrounding sexual behaviour in society more generally. While sexual behaviour has been influenced strongly by cultural and religious norms, frankness about sexuality or sexual relations has been negligible or absent, with little reliable data for health service provision purposes. In seeking to understand these issues we promote positive and creative aspects of sexuality, identify vulnerabilities if and as they exist and support constructive life choices.
