In particular I want to pay tribute to an organisation that this year will celebrate 90 years of talking about sex, educating about sex and providing training to doctors and nurses about sex and human sexuality - an organisation that has talked openly, without shame and with accuracy, about all the good things and the bad things sex may be; and an organisation that understands the role of relationships in human wellbeing and the empowerment that comes from knowledge about sex, especially for women."
