Valentine's DayOn this annual day dedicated to celebrating love, we thought it important to remember how important self-love is. Women especially can get so wrapped up in caring for others that we forget to take care of ourselves. So this Valentine's Day, try to take a break from your many obligations and spend a little time thinking about how to Get your Sexy On! Although it is totally normal to struggle with intimacy after being diagnosed, it is important to remember that it IS possible to live a satisfying sexual life after HIV. Read tips on boosting your sex-esteem, rediscovering pleasure, and navigating around issues related to HIV and intimacy. Take some time this Valentine's Day to treat yourself to a little sexy time!
