Introducing the Play Safe Forum

The Play Safe website from NSW Health has just launched a new sexual health discussion forum for young people aged 15-29 years. The Play Safe Forum is a place where young people can anonymously submit questions to the resident sexual health expert, Nurse Nettie, as well as chat to their peers about sex, relationships and everything in between.

The Play Safe forum aims to demystify and destigmatise sex, sexual health and sexuality concerns, to help young people get the information they need to have safer sex. Through encouraging positive and open discussion between peers and sexual health professionals, Play Safe aims to increase condom use and testing for STIs.

Check out the Play Safe forum at and please promote the forum to your youth networks.
