Download as a PDF

This is the most recent NCSH quarterly social media campaign, which includes sample sexual health content that you can use and/or adapt for your digital and social media channels. The campaign contains two parts:

Part 1: Our theme for this campaign is Back to Basics: What is Good Sexual Health? It focuses on content related to how we define sexual health, the steps we can take to improve our sexual health, and how providers can meet the needs of their patients with an inclusive, comprehensive approach.

Part 2: This features sample tweets in support of key health observances, holidays, and other cultural milestones that will be taking place over the next three months.

The key observances for this quarter include: 

  • Thanks, Birth Control (Nov 18)
  • Transgender Awareness Week (Nov 13-19)
  • Transgender Day of Remembrance (Nov 20)
  • Thanksgiving Day (Nov 26)
  • Black Friday (Nov 27)

Here’s a sample of what you can find in the full campaign:
  • Good #sexualhealth is so much more than just biology and disease prevention. It is pleasure & intimacy. It is healthy relationships. It is valuing & feeling good about yourself. And it is a sex life that fits your likes and dislikes!
  • A holistic approach to #sexualhealth is one that is trauma-informed, sex-positive, and inclusive of all sexual orientations, gender identities, abilities, and ages!
  • #Providers: Is the sexual #healthcare you provide inclusive for patients of all sexual orientations, gender identities, physical abilities, & ages? @NCSH_ has a compendium of resources to help you improve your effectiveness w/ all types of patients.
  • PSA: PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES ARE SEXUAL BEINGS, TOO! Like everyone else, they deserve access to comprehensive sexual health information and services that meet their needs. So, that they too can experience a healthier body, a satisfying sex life, and positive relationships.
  • Having a satisfying, pleasurable sex life (partnered or solo!) is a key part of #sexualhealth. But if that’s not your focus right now, that’s okay, too! Doing what feels good & right to you is what’s most important. #GetYourFreakOnIfYouWantTo
  • #SexualHealth: It’s more about the do’s than the don’ts. DO value who you are. Get smart about your body & protect it. Treat your partners well/expect them to treat you well. Build positive relationships. And, make sexual health part of your healthcare routine.
  • It’s never too late. You can learn how to talk openly about desires, boundaries, consent & safer sex with your partner(s). Being comfortable with these convos is key to good sexual health! #SexualHealthMatters
  • #Providers: Are you practicing w/ a comprehensive view of #sexualhealth? It should be: 1) Trauma-informed, 2) Sex-positive, 3) Inclusive of all sexual orientations, gender identities, abilities, and ages, and 4) More than just disease prevention!
  • DYK #trans youth who get gender-affirming care earlier in life are less likely to experience depression and anxiety? Gender-affirming healthcare is life-saving! #TrangenderAwarenessWeek
  • Did you end 2020 with a bang and forget to use protection? Accidents happen. Emergency contraception is safe, and can prevent pregnancy if taken within 5 days after unprotected sex. #SafeSex
  • Your cervix does a lot – it keeps unwanted bacteria out of your uterus, it opens and closes to let sperm in and blood out, and it grows its own plug if you become pregnant. Make sure you keep this biological wonder healthy! #CervicalHealthMonth
