Welcome to Sexwize
Sexwize is your friendly guide to sexual health and contraception services within Torbay. This site is especially for you if you are under 25 years old. It explains how to make sure the sex you’re having – or want to have in the future – is healthy and safe.
We know that lots of people who visit Sexwize aren’t ready to have sex just yet, and other visitors to the site may not be sure what kind of sex they want to have. That’s ok! You’re very welcome to browse the information and advice Sexwize gives, so that you can make the right decisions for you when you’re ready.
All the services listed throughout the site are free and confidential
and many of them are also able to offer information, advice and support on a range of issues relating to your sexual health, including contraception, preventing sexually transmitted infections and having healthy relationships. You’ll also be able to see where you can get free condoms via C Card Scheme and a free, confidential Chlamydia test. The site also lists all the different kinds of contraception men and women can use and it tells you what you can do if you have an emergency contraception query.
Find out what it is like to visit a sexual health service
Students at South Devon College have teamed up with sexual health professionals in Torbay to produce a short video about accessing sexual health services.
The video is designed to give you an idea of what is involved in visiting a local sexual health clinic and what is likely to happen when you get there. You’ll see that staff are welcoming and friendly, and won’t judge you no matter what questions you have.
Of course, you can also see the sexual health outreach team when they visit your school or college as well services for young people, Healthwize. Outreach clinics are ‘drop in’ sessions where you are able to have a discreet conversation about your sexual health, with a trained professional.
