Here is ASHA's meaning of sexual wellbeing:

Approaching sexual wellbeing data, instruction, and care.
Attempting to avert unintended pregnancies and STDs and look for care and treatment when required.

Characterizing Sexual Health
ASHA Board part and educator of pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine J. Dennis Fortenberry, MD, considers the term sexual wellbeing, how it is utilized, and how it can be characterized.
The expression "sexual wellbeing" incorporates a scope of general wellbeing and clinical issues identified with aversion of sexually transmitted contaminations. I utilize the expression a ton in my own work and its broadening cash is a welcome new worldview in our field. Truth be told, the idea of sexual wellbeing appears to me of crucial significance to all parts of avoidance of sexually transmitted diseases.
To be completely forthright, however, the majority of the discussion about sexual wellbeing doesn't appear to have affected the everyday particulars of our work. Sex still is fundamentally observed as an arrangement of hazard variables that we direct against. I am persuaded that this point of view on sex and sexuality as "hazard" legitimates the disgrace related with sexually transmitted contaminations and adds to our general public's toxic narrow mindedness of sexual differing qualities. A sexual wellbeing viewpoint fuses the idea of individual and epidemiologic dangers of sex, however perceives the inescapable significance of sex in our lives.
In any case, I've started to think about whether I realize what sexual wellbeing implies in any case. It's a major idea, and perhaps it's regular that definitions appear to be hopeful, spent, and pretentious. Consider the notable working meaning of the World Health Organization:
"Sexual wellbeing is a condition of physical, passionate, mental and social prosperity in connection to sexuality; it is not simply the nonappearance of illness, brokenness or sickness. Sexual wellbeing requires a positive and conscious way to deal with sexuality and sexual connections, and in addition the likelihood of having pleasurable and safe sexual encounters, free of pressure, separation and viciousness. For sexual wellbeing to be accomplished and kept up, the sexual privileges of all people must be regarded, ensured and satisfied."
There is a considerable measure to concur with in this definition, particularly in its acknowledgment of the complex physical, enthusiastic, mental and social qualities of sexual wellbeing, and the securing of sexual wellbeing in widespread sexual rights. Be that as it may, I observe this definition to be curiously rebuking and parental ("… the likelihood of having pleasurable and safe sexual encounters… "). All the more critically, nonetheless, the definition is sexually obscure. Regardless of how often I've perused, utilized, and refered to this definition, I can't get from it even a simple vision of how sexual wellbeing works in individuals' every day lives. I feel the same about the all the more as of late created meaning of the U.S. Habitats for Disease Control and Prevention, especially in light of the fact that sexual rights and of sexual joy are missing from that sexual wellbeing definition.
Along these lines, perhaps I have to get clearer with myself about what sexual wellbeing is. What's more, sexual wellbeing ought to be something other than the negatives: not pressured; not separated; not rough. The predominance of these negatives in many individuals' lives reveals to us how far we are from accomplishing a fair and evenhanded society. Be that as it may, I surmise that sexual wellbeing at last requires a great deal more dynamic contribution from every one of us, and it appears to be very deficient to expectation that sexual wellbeing will emerge all alone if compulsion, separation, and savagery are at long last won.
