Identify your Sexual Projects

It helps to know what we’re doing and why we're doing it in any area of life, including our sexual expression and relationships. Reflecting on your sexual projects is a way to understand what’s important to you and what’s motivating your behavior. Identifying your sexual projects can improve your confidence, give you the chance to change direction if you need to, and most importantly, start communicating with others. 

Watch this short video as an introduction to sexual projects, and then take the quiz to help you reflect on your sexual projects. This will support you in developing your own--and supporting others’--sexual citizenship.
