Running head: HEALTH PROMOTION 1 Responsible Sexual Health Promotion Responsible Sexual Health Promotion HEALTH PROMOTION 2 The main goal of health promotion is to guide health behavior among people and

 

communities positively. One of the Healthy People 2020 Ten Leading Health Indicators for the

 

Nation and health priorities is promoting responsible sexual behavior. It also impacts the health

 

status of of all people including families as well as the nation. Health promotion is a preventative

 

measure for all persons to enhance his or her quality of life, especially those are most vulnerable

 

in the society. There are undesirable consequences when involved in sexual behavior, like

 

sexually transmitted diseases and HIV infection, unwanted pregnancies, abortions, sexual

 

dysfunction, and violence. Nonetheless, health promotion can quickly reduce unwanted

 

transmitted diseases, financial concerns, family arguments. It decreases the cost that families,

 

employers, individuals and insurance companies can spend on medical treatment as well

 

(Garofalo, 2014).

 

Young adults have been affected by sexually transmitted diseases and HIV contractions

 

which have increased dramatically. Sex and illness education programs decrease sexual activity

 

and increase condom or contraceptive use. Also, school?based clinics and school condom

 

availability programs do not increase sexual activity like some parents may think and especially

 

increases condom or contraceptive use. The plan is to focus on changing beliefs as well as

 

focusing on refining decisions about sexual behavior among young adults. Also, proper

 

communication among parents and their children as well as health care providers can advocate

 

healthy sexual behaviors between young adults. When young adults feel connected to one?s

 

family, and school one can be involved in activities decreased health risks. Besides, when parents

 

affirm the value of communicating with their children, this can develop positively as well as

 

promote healthy attitudes. It becomes hard for parents to discuss topics about abstinence and HEALTH PROMOTION 3 contraception. Therefore, more education to parents and counseling programs should be available

 

to improve communication between parents and children (Faulkner, 2015).

 

Promoting health and guidance to parents and their children with communication

 

techniques as well as a base to begin to talk about sex that most parents are afraid to talk to their

 

children, this good communication can promote healthy sexual behavior. It is up to the school,

 

medical professionals, families and all community to encourage our adolescents to get involved

 

in community activities; therefore, allowing young adults to interact with others and allow those

 

to learn how to make decisions that will not affect them in some sort of way. Consequently, the

 

lack of communication can as well affect the behavior and attitudes among young adults. For

 

instance, young adults lack of communication in one?s home is more likely to have a lower selfesteem, drug use, school problems and sexual risk behaviors (Garofalo, 2014). Studies reveal

 

that there is very broad support for comprehensive sex and HIV education programs, most youth

 

groups receive some amount of sex or HIV education. Although, important topics are not

 

covered in many schools.

 

Community-based programs can be engaged in the plan of promoting healthy sexual

 

behavior among young adults. It is also important to examine the structure and culture of the

 

organization that already provide this education and enforce any barrier that prevents the

 

organization from promoting healthy sexual behavior to adults. Active young adult involvement

 

can be essential to developing a thorough plan as well as deliver sexual health education (Park,

 

2016). As Nurse Practitioners it is vital always to educate families as much as possible, one

 

sexual encounter can change a families? life; therefore, this is something that needs to be

 

discussed with parents. HEALTH PROMOTION 4 Adolescents should be involved in the planning process and involving other young adults

 

to unite; therefore, reducing the incidence of improper sexual behavior. For example, community

 

health fairs, youth mentorships, and HIV prevention programs. When young adults participate in

 

projects or tasks eventually one can obtain his or her opinion and change one?s perspective on

 

these important subjects. Therefore, involving young adults in decision making can be critical

 

and can prepare them to make appropriate decisions when involved in sexual encounters (Park,

 

2016). One right decision can change a person?s life forever if people are prepared and educated

 

it can decrease the risk of going through a difficult time.

 

Lastly, there are community services that can allow individuals to participate in activities

 

such as music and exercise programs that can help adults come together and promote healthy

 

activities. Some include behavior management centers, counseling, youth resource centers, and

 

health departments. Although it is difficult to live with diseases, there is community resources

 

that can help manage, prevent and intervene for all individuals (Park, 2016).

 

In 2012, Ine Vanwesenbeeck wrote an article called "Sex Research" which examined the

 

differences in the sexual health gay, lesbian, heterosexual individuals. The study was to

 

determine the possible causes of disparities among each sexual preference and also acknowledge

 

that some groups could face serious health issues more than others. Approximately 1500 citizens

 

were invited to complete a survey on one's sexual health. To make sure that a significant amount

 

of lesbian, bisexual, and gay persons participated, ads were incorporated in magazines and

 

websites to draw attention and dived each group. Participants were divided into designated

 

groups depending on what each has answered and based on his or her attraction

 

(Vanwesenbeeck, 2012). HEALTH PROMOTION 5 The results showed that bi-sexual males/females were in need of sexual health care;

 

nonetheless, the number of sexual partners increased significantly. This number of sexual

 

partners was concluded to be the leading indicator for sexual victimization. However, sexual

 

dysfunction was noticed in these groups. There was also an increase of emotional stress in these

 

groups do to the pressure that society puts on people with different sexual orientation. People

 

hide one's sexuality due to the thought of being rejected by families, society and one's

 

community (Loren, 2012). Unfortunately, the more sexual partners that the group had, there was

 

less responsible sexual behavior, causing an increase in pregnancies, sexual transmitted diseases

 

and health issues.

 

Doctor Olson is a Psychiatrist who brings a unique perspective concerning sexual

 

minorities? health problem. Dr. Olson himself is a gay male who was hiding his sexual

 

preference. The stress placed on him by society, and the stereotyping makes it difficult for

 

individuals with a different perspective accept reality. Dr. Olson quotes, ?Human sexuality is a

 

part of your total personality? it is a crucial part of one's overall health (Olson, 2013). Therefore,

 

it is vital that studies are conducted to look into hidden issues and discover methods to resolve

 

them. Allowing people to accept reality; therefore, allowing them to live a healthier sexual life.

 

Nonetheless, acceptance helps relieve stress and make people feel wanted and loved.

 

Responsible sexual behavior plays a major role in everyone?s life; these articles support

 

the fact that if there is a stereotype towards those who have different sexual preferences which

 

make it harder for those to act openly and responsible when it comes to sexual behavior. There

 

are multiple theories that support sexual health promotion which is, the motivation theory that is

 

a complex model that includes components about perceptions, vulnerability, pleasure and social HEALTH PROMOTION 6 approval. Social cognition theory emphasizes motivation and action. These theories have evolved

 

and helped empower others and helping individuals improve one?s sexual health (Loren, 2012).

 

The literature reviews have shown a focus on sexual preferences and the stress that brings

 

to people with different sexual views. The barriers can be overcome by providing health

 

education about sexual healthcare to the community. Studies show that learning about human

 

sexuality and taking a sexual health class increases comfort and with addressing sexual health.

 

Sex education is offered in many schools, but it should also happen at home. Education can ve

 

covered in a health class, but when it comes to making a tough choice about sex, it can be tough

 

to be influenced by a class that he or she might have taken. When parents are involved in an

 

adolescent life, it helps adolescents think twice before acting irresponsibly in a situation. Some

 

factors that may steer a teenager to early sexual behavior could be peer pressure, curiosity, and

 

loneliness, to name a few. Once parents remind his or her child that you expect him or her to take

 

sex and associated responsibilities seriously (Loren, 2012). HEALTH PROMOTION 7 References
